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.
If you know of an Abyssinian or Somali cat or kitten in the Southern California area that needs to be rescued, please e-mail LYN with "ABY Rescue" in the Subject line or call or text (310) 948-2070. Please speak clearly with your name and phone number.

We are an all volunteer organization. Our foster families pay for the food and litter themselves, but all medical costs are paid for by S.C.A.R.
We thank everyone that has sent in donations and want you to know that your generosity has helped the lives of many cats.
We take the abys and somalis in at any age, some just need a physical exam but there are others that need long term medical care until they are ready for adoption.

Down Memory Lane......Happy Endings!
Heathcliff came to us in the summer of 2016 year. He had been hanging around outside in the neighborhood and someone brought him to the shelter. When he came into foster his entire coat on his back end was gone. He was so appreciative for our help and was a perfect gentleman. Although it was going to take a long time for his fur to grow back in, his future human looked into his soulful eyes and knew he was meant for her family. He will certainly be celebrating this New Year's Eve!

Do you have the heart to foster an aby or somali? We are always in need of aby/somali experienced people that can help us in caring for the cats we take in. The requirements are simple: a separate room to house the foster kitty, providing food, litter, water and alot of TLC. We provide lots of support and guidance.
If you are serious about fostering, please email us for more information.

THE END OF THE YEAR ALWAYS FINDS US RESCUING AN ABY FROM A SHELTER BECAUSE THEIR HUMAN PASSED AWAY. SADIE MAE (BELOW) AND LINK ARE NO DIFFERENT EXCEPT THAT THEY ARE SENIORS. SADIE MAE IS 13 TO 15 YRS OLD AND LINK IS 16. SAD YES, BUT HAPPY FOR THEM THAT S.C.A.R. FOUND THEM. THEY ARE SWEET, AFFECTIONATE CATS THAT JUST WANT TO LIVE OUT THE REST OF THEIR LIVES WITH A WARM BED, FOOD, LITTER AND LOVE FROM A HUMAN. THEY ARE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION IF SOMEONE CAN FIND IT IN THEIR HEART TO GIVE LOVE TO THESE GIRLS.
Betsy stays in our hearts and our minds. She is the reason we work so hard and so quickly to rescue an aby or somali from a shelter. She was brought there at such a young age. We tried to help her get well, her will to live was there, but her body was not able to.
IN MEMORIUM 2012-2013
