Animal Rescue of Fresno has dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens for adoption. Adopt a pet in Fresno, CA.
Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Fresno, CA – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.
You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Fresno pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Fresno is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Fresno animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.

We are a Nonprofit Animal Rescue organization with big purpose!! Our goal is to save as many wonderful homeless pets as possible. In Fresno County /City we have one of the largest populations of homeless pets in the Country. Without the work we do the future would be bleak for many homeless animals. We are volunteer based organization and receive no funding from local government. What does that mean? It means we do this because we love the animals and no other reason at all. We feel their lives are worth the hard work. How can you help us, by , , , or !?! We place our intake focus on the homeless pets in Fresno County and the surrounding areas and provide relief for many rural shelters that have no adoption programs in place. All animals that are adopted will be Spayed/Neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated appropriately, provided a full spectrum de-wormer and have received a flea/tick preventative. Age appropriate testing for things like heartworm or feline diseases may also be done depending on the circumstances of the individual animal. Each pet comes with an initial free health exam from Pet Medical Center located in Fresno. This exam must be used within the first two weeks after adoption.
