adopt a pet?
Because you’ll save a life
A shelter pet is more than one in a million—she’s one in 2.7 million. That’s the number of adoptable dogs and cats who are still euthanized each year in the United States, simply because too many pets come into shelters and too few people adopt.
The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them. When you adopt, you save your animal and open up shelter space for another animal who might need it.

Designer Dog Rescue is a foster based rescue. This allows us to work on socialization and litter box training. All of our kittens are cat tested and exposed to new dogs, children, and various situations while in their foster homes. We do recommend continued socialization and training for all of our kittens. Please see description of the kitten you are interested in to find out more about his/her health status, socialization and training needs.
Every kitten in our care receives a health exam from a vet prior to adoption. In addition, kittens will have been treated for fleas/ticks, de-wormed, and have current age appropriate vaccines. Upon adopting, you will be given a coupon for Banfield for a free health exam, along with an adoption packet containing all of your new pet’s health records, various coupons, a welcome pamphlet, a 20% off coupon for pet food express, and coupon booklets worth up to $400 in coupons from Petsmart and Petco.
All kittens are microchipped prior to adoption. You will receive information on how to register the microchip in your name, via email within a few days of the adoption. kittens will be spayed or neutered, or in the case of small kittens, we will defer spay or neuter to a later date. All kittens adopted from Designer Dog Rescue will be fixed before they are 6 months old!
Starting March 2017
We now take in underage kittens !
Kitten season is upon us. Each year thousands of kittens come into the local animal shelters without their moms. Some need bottle feeding, some are eating on their own but are too young to adopt out.
Starting March 2017, Designer Dog Rescue will be helping our local animal shelters with what is called “kitten season”. Meaning we will be providing love and care to kittens under the age of 8 weeks. Once these kittens are 8 weeks, they will be placed up for adoption.
Underage kittens are the most euthanizes pet in the shelter system. If we want to make Los Angeles No Kill, we will join the fight and help as many kittens are we can. They all deserve a chance to live and have a happy family.
If you would like to help us, we need kitten fosters for bottle babies and fosters for litters of kittens who are eating on their own.
