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........
He was found on the streets by the Police and taken to the local humane society. He had constant loss of hair and scratching and they deemed him unadoptable. Not to us though because we don't give up on our abys. After testing, including an allergy panel, he was diagnosd with severe allergies causing the constant scratching and loss of patches of hair. He is still under observation and when he is stable, he will be available for adoption. DannyBoy, we love you!

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.

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
