Domestic Short Hair – Red Tabby
Rutabaga is new to the shelter and is currently available for adoption. If interested in adopting Rutabaga, a link to the application can be found below.
Rancho Coastal adopts out kittens starting at 8 weeks of age. Many of them have been in foster homes for weeks and were even bottle-fed. If you are thinking about bringing home kittens, be sure to consider your time away from home and the ages of your family members. Kittens between the ages of 8-11 weeks old need more attention and care than older kittens. They need continued training and play time, and are generally better with older children. Kittens that are 4 months and older make better companions for young children and are generally more gentle during play.
Rancho Coastal encourages adopting kittens in pairs, which is why we have created our “Two Purr One” Program: if you choose to adopt a pair of kittens, the second kitten has a waived adoption fee. Behaviorists recommend pairs because kittens benefit from the companionship and because they are more entertained, they do less damage around your home.
Please call the shelter at (760)753-6413 for questions on Rutabaga or detailed information on the adoption process.
Adoption Hours: Wednesday–Monday; 11 AM to 4:30 PM (Closed Tuesdays)
