Itsie Bitsie Rescue Inc., is a 501-c (3) non-profit organization in which volunteers work together to save abandoned, un-weaned kittens and puppies. The Rescue strives to save as many “bottle babies” as our volunteers can support through out the year. Once weaned, the adoption coordinator works diligently to place each hand-raised adoptable animal into loving homes. As a non-profit organization, Itsie Bitsie Rescue, Inc. occasionally is also able to help out the local community by taking in exotic animals and livestock with special needs as space is available.

The following is the mission statement for Itsie Bitsie Rescue, Inc.:

The mission of Itsie Bitsie Rescue, Inc. is to provide shelter, development time, population control, and in time, permanent placement of un-weaned kittens and puppies, as well as abandoned exotics and livestock with special needs, in order to prevent the suffering and abandonment of neglected pets from the local communities. Itsie Bitsie Rescue, Inc. also provides counseling and support for members of our community who are caring for newborn kittens and/or puppies.

The policy of Itsie Bitsie Rescue, Inc. is:

The policy of Itsie Bitsie Rescue, Inc. is that all animals will be spayed or neutered and given their first inoculation prior to being adopted by their new permanent families. Plus kittens will be tested for Leukemia upon arrival. There are NO Exceptions to this rule with kittens and puppies. We strongly urge, but do not require, that the new adopted parent micro chip their new pet. Exotics and livestock will only be adopted to homes that have previous experiences with the same breed of animal.

As a non-profit organization Itsie Bitsie Rescue, Inc. depends on donations, grants and volunteers for its survival. The rescue has a few dependable and capable volunteers that have the knowledge and resources to look after the “bottle babies” in their care. The majority of the funding for the rescue comes from donations provided by loyal sponsors and adoption fees for our babies. The current group of volunteers has been working together for five years and they are strongly committed to the cause.

Itsie Bitsie Rescue, Inc. has been working with local veterinarian offices and the Sacramento County SPCA for the past four years and we would like to extend our services to any one in need. Please consider using Itsie Bitsie Rescue Inc. as an alternative facility for your abandoned and unwanted un-weaned kittens and puppies that have been surrendered to your facilities. Due to the enormous need for our services and the great number of abandon kittens and puppies, we ask that we are used as a last resort for your babies.
