Southern California Abyssinian Rescue (S.C.A.R.) is a registered 501(c)3 organization. We are a group of volunteers dedicated to the rehoming of abyssinians and somalis in the Southwestern United States.  We also offer counseling services to help when health or behavioral challenges come up as our goal is for the cat to remain in the home.  We do not have a shelter, our abyssinians and somalis are fostered in private homes.  We also will consult about abyssinians and somalis outside our territory.


If you have an abyssinian or somali that you need to rehome or know of one that needs help, call (310) 948-2070.  Please speak slowly and clearly when leaving a message.  You may also email Marla



Donations are also welcome at:
P.O. Box 57
Whittier, CA 90608



Your donations help to pay for the veterinary care for all our cats and or special needs kitties.  We couldn't do it without your generosity!






Meet Tameka who came to us in 2018.  She was 16 yrs old and had lived the past 6 years in a garage.  It had everything she needed, nice comfy beds, cat trees, but 6 years is too long to live in a garage.  We knew she would probably live out her life with one of our regular fosters and that is exactly what has happened.  This girl is just spending her days sleeping in the sun, playing a little and getting the love and respect she deserves. 


Your donations help us to save the many abyssinians and somalis like Tameka that come to us and we thank you.

Do you have the heart to foster an aby or somali?  We are always in need of aby/somali experienced people that can help us in caring for the cats we take in.  The requirements are simple: a separate room to house the foster kitty, providing food, litter, water and alot of TLC.  We provide lots of support and guidance.

If you are serious about fostering, please email us for more information.





Adopting a rescued Abyssinian is a very rewarding experience.  Most rescues are the wonderful, loving, delightful cats with who we all are familiar.  Occasionally rescues can come with health or behavioral problems.  Do not let this deter you.  With patience and love these cats can become an important part of your life. 

If you are committed to making a rescued Abyssinian's life comfortable and serene and want to be placed on a list as a potential person to adopt a rescued Abyssinian or Somali, please fill out our
ONLINE RESCUE APPLICATION  and you will receive a letter of confirmation.  All fields must be filled out or an error message will occur.
