What We Do

PURRfect Partners is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteer cat rescue and adoption group based in Redondo Beach, California. Our Tax ID # is 95-4751658. We are committed to finding forever loving homes for kittens and cats. Our cat adoption and cat rescue work covers the entire South Bay area, including Redondo Beach, Torrance, Gardena, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Palos Verdes and Carson, as well as other Los Angeles communities.

This is a picture of Ysabel and Penny taken in Nov. 2002 shortly before they were adopted. They were two feral kittens who came from different places but soon became very attached to each other. Almost six years later, they are still just as bonded. We were so taken by their friendship that we have used their original kitten picture on our business card ever since.

Please visit our adoption center on Saturdays and Sundays at Centinela Feed, located at 413 N. Pacific Coast Hwy. in Redondo Beach, California. Our cats and kittens (and their staff!) are there from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

As of now, we are not showing kitties at any adoption site.

What People Say

History

>PURRfect Partners was formed in 1998 by two cat lovers from the South Bay area of Los Angeles. The current executive director, Debra Corwin, with the help of a few devoted volunteers, has rescued, fostered and placed hundreds of cats and kittens in wonderful new homes.
PURRfect Partners helps to educate the public about proper cat care, and how spaying and neutering saves lives by reducing the number of unwanted and homeless animals. We believe our work makes a difference in our South Bay community, bringing people together to care for and consider the welfare of cats and other animals.
Our volunteers foster approximately 50 cats at any given time, providing the care, training and security necessary to get them ready for adoption. These include newborns, kittens, cats with disabilities, senior cats and those with other special needs.

Free Roaming Cats and TNR

PURRfect Partners receives hundreds of inquiries about cats that are found or lost, about general cat care, and especially about feral cats that are familiar to every community across the country. We strive to help these compassionate individuals become knowledgeable advocates for these homeless cats. PURRfect Partners also offers senior citizens assistance with spay/neuter costs.

In caring for feral colonies, PURRfect Partners uses the trap-neuter-return (TNR) method. Cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, and released back in the same location. Feeding areas are set up and the colony becomes stabilized. Some of these cats can be socialized and placed in a new home.

Please note: Our foster homes are full and we are unable to take in any more kittens or cats. We are happy to help with advice, spay and neuter support, TNR (trap-neuter-return), website adoption listings and showing cats from the community at our adoption center. Please contact us for more information.

Stray Cat

Oh, what unhappy twist of fate
Has brought you homeless to my gate?
The gate where once another stood
To beg for shelter, warmth, and food
For from that day I ceased to be
The master of my destiny.
While he, with purr and velvet paw
Became within my house the law.
He scratched the furniture and shed
And claimed the middle of my bed.
He ruled in arrogance and pride
And broke my heart the day he died.
So if you really think, oh Cat,
I’d willingly relive all that
Because you come forlorn and thin
Well…don’t just stand there…Come on in!
