Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Too Cute Kitten Rescue first focuses on the prevention of orphaned kittens through spay & neuter programs. We encourage cat owners to spay/neuter their cats prior to 5 months of age. We offer low-cost spay & nueter through transportation services to Mexicali. We also have partnered with SANDS to help individuals with TNR projects. We started the Kitten Prevention Squad in Feb 2020 to increase the TNR efforts prior to kitten season.

A huge focus is community integration! We run several social media sites: facebook, twitter, Instagram, snap chat, and our website to bring awareness to the community. We educate the public on best practices for animal welfare. We train fosters and encourage people who find kittens to foster through us. We want the community to join together for a common cause.

We have already increased our goals from last year which shows that we have shown to meet and exceed our goals. I think passion and a willingness to work hard makes our organization very capable of meeting goals.

Too Cute Kitten Rescue started with an idea. We not only acted on that idea we have far exceeded expectations. We got a call from a rescue in San Diego about a kitten that needed help. We have limited vets and resources in Imperial Valley, yet other organizations seek our advice. We hope to grow and fill in gaps. We want to TNR 120 cats this year 2020.
