Kitty Bungalow is a community cat organization and kitten socialization facility. We focus our attention on providing services for the most vulnerable of felines. Our cats and kittens come from the mean streets of Los Angeles, whether it be directly from TNR, pulling from LA Animal Services, or working with our remarkable rescue partners.
Kitty Bungalow provides the community with access to free TNR services, which allows for thousands of cats to be fixed, receive vaccines and flea treatment, and get returned to the people who care for them.
Kitty Bungalow intake hundreds of kittens each year into Charm School. Our dedicated family of onsite volunteers and foster parents care for our "students" and use force-free socialization techniques to take street cats from 'hiss to home.'
As a No Kill facility, we believe that working together is how the best life-saving strategies come to be.
For people affected by poverty or disaster, health is essential to a better future. With good health, they can attend school, be productive at work, care for their families and contribute to strong communities. Poor health puts all of those opportunities at risk. Health is fundamental to all aspects of development.
More than 1.7 billion people around the world are unbanked and can’t access the financial services they need. Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 in San Francisco, with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive.
We do this by crowdfunding loans and unlocking capital for the underserved, improving the quality and cost of financial services, and addressing the underlying barriers to financial access around the world. Through Kiva's work, students can pay for tuition, women can start businesses, farmers are able to invest in equipment and families can afford needed emergency care.
By lending as little as $25 on Kiva, you can be part of the solution and make a real difference in someone’s life.
