Southern California Abyssinian Rescue
Southern California Abyssinian Rescue, Inc. (S.C.A.R.) is a network of dedicated volunteers who serve the Southern California area and the CFA Southwest Region in rescuing and finding homes for Abyssinian and Somali cats and kittens that are in need.
As we are not a shelter, all cats are kept in foster homes until a permanent home is found.
If someone wants to rehome their aby because of a behavioral issue, we work with them first to find a solution so the cat remains in the home. If nothing works, we will place the cat with a well trained foster volunteer for evaluation and then, adoption.
S.C.A.R. also takes in abys from local shelters, rehabilitates them and finds them their furrever home. Sometimes the cats are strays, sometimes turned in by an owner. Many of these cats require visits to the vet and follow up medication and we rely on donations.
Adopting a rescued Abyssinian is a very rewarding experience. Most rescues are the wonderful, loving, delightful cats with who we all are familiar. Occasionally rescues can come with health or behavioral problems. Do not let this deter you. With patience and love these cats can become an important part of your life.
We require an application be filled out before any adoption. We only adopt within Southern California.
