As of 2021, Senate Bill No. 573 requires all California rescue groups to microchip cats & dogs. This helps in reuniting animals back with owners. Check with local rescue groups to see if stray cat has a microchip!
Post the cat online
Some people have indoor/outdoor cats. We recommend taking photos of the cat and posting on social media sites first. Ask neighbors if they know who the cat belongs to. We do not recommend picking up the cat unless it is in danger.
Here are some local groups to post the cat:
Imperial Valley: Lost and Found Pets

When Space Allows:
Too Cute Kitten Rescue takes in stray neonatal kittens and moms to prepare for adoption. Unfortunately, TCKR can not take cats that are feral, aggressive, terminally ill or otherwise “unadoptable”. We get requests daily to take in cats and have a waiting list for surrenders. We must save space for orphaned neonatal kittens that need 1:1 care. We do not have a vet on staff and our area doesn’t have an emergency vet. We do not accept cats directly.
We do not accept cats directly at our office:
Any person seeking to surrender a kitten/cat to Too Cute Kitten Rescue, whether it be an owner surrender or a stray/found cat, must email us at Toocutekittenrescue@gmail.com with details to see if we have space to help. If we are able to accept the cat, we will send you a surrender form with further instructions. We do ask for a donation of $40 per cat/kitten & $100 per litter.
