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.

Adoptions

There are many pets in shelters and adoption groups all across Southern California waiting for a loving home. We hope that you will consider giving these wonderful animals a second chance by adopting them into your family.

PURRfect Partners holds adoptions every weekend. We are pleased to have the support of Centinela Feed in Redondo Beach, which gives us the space to show our cats. All of our cats are kept in foster homes while awaiting adoption. They are neutered/spayed, de-wormed, vaccinated, and tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia. Each cat is micro-chipped prior to adoption.

We also offer a service to the community to "show" stray or abandoned kitties from their neighborhood.  Please click on "Show a Kitty" for more information.

Adoptions are held every Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (except on holidays) at Centinela Feed and Pet Supplies, 413 N. Pacific Coast Hwy. in Redondo Beach, California 90277. The store is located in the Redondo Shores Shopping Center (15 minutes south of LAX) on the corner of Beryl St. and PCH.

Our Logo


Ysabel and Penny in 2002

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.

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!
