PURRfect Partners was formed in 1998 by two cat lovers from the South Bay area of Los Angeles. The current executive director, Debbie Harder, 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.
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.
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!

Our Tax ID # is 95-4751658. We are committed to finding forever loving homes for kittens and cats.

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.
What People Are Saying
“We adopted our cat, Zach, almost 3 years ago from Purrfect Partners. We currently have three other cats and one dog, all rescues from other agencies. We were impressed with the dedication of the volunteers and are still in touch with Zach’s foster mom, Gloria, whom I bombard weekly, if not more often, with pictures of “my “precious kitty. Consider adopting , even If you have never had a cat before–they will fill you with so much love!”

“Our cat, Johnny, did not want us getting another cat, so we visited sweet “Tree Girl” during Purrfect Partners adoptions. Gloria and the other women were kind & very informative. When we knew that we had to adopt her, they came and did the home visit. I loved the kindness and concern they showed for her well-being. Tree Girl who we renamed, June, now lives harmoniously with our cat Johnny and our human baby. I have stayed in touch because it’s nice knowing there are people looking out for these beautiful creatures. I have never met any other non-profit that gives their love and hearts as much as this one. I am forever grateful.”
– Coleen D.
“It’s been two and a half years after we adopted Audry and Sabrina. All I can say is that I cannot imagine life without my two beautiful girls. Purrfect Partners is an incredibly dedicated team of cat lovers who go the extra mile and have made miracles happen for some of the most neglected, forgotten, and abused kitties in the South Bay. I highly recommend them. Please consider adopting your next cat from Purrfect Partners.”
