Cats In Need is a volunteer-run, non-profit, no-kill Southern California rescue group organized to bring homeless adoptable cats and potential life-long owners together.

The Brea Chapter operates out of the PETsMART Luv A Pet Centers located at: 2465 E. Imperial Highway, Brea, CA  714-256-0205.

As you can see, we have many black and white and all black cats right now. For some strange reason these beautiful creatures are often overlooked. They have so much love to give and just want love in return. Please give these too often passed over kitties a second look and your consideration.

Adoption Procedures
Site Info

  • You must be 18 years or older to adopt a cat.
  • We interview all applicants.
  • All potential adopters must complete a general adoption questionnaire, which will be reviewed by an adoption manager or director for approval.
  • In the case of multiple applications for the same cat, a CIN (Cats In Need) Director or Manager will make a determination on the home best suited to the specific cat.
  • Approved potential owners complete an adoption contract for the specified cat(s).
  • There is an adoption donation (anywhere between $75-$125 per cat depending on the breed of the cat), which is tax deductible.
  • All adopted cats must go home in a secure carrier.

Sending an email to the email address below will not go to someone who handles adoptions or to someone who takes in cats for Cats in Need. All I do is clean the cages of the cats once or twice a week while they are in the store (oh, and I play with them too :-). So if you have a question about what the cat's personality is like, I might be able to help you out there.  However, for questions about adoptions or about taking in cats, you will need to contact either Peg or Ilonka of the Brea Cats in Need (their numbers can be found on the "Adoptable Cats" pages, below each cat's description).

If you have questions relating to the Brea Cats In Need website, or if you have adopted a cat from us and would like to send us an update and/or pictures, please send an email to:

Cat Information Links
Site Info

Here are a few links to some websites that have information on various topics about cats. I will add more as I find them:

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV): this link brings you to the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine website, which answers all your questions about FIV.


About.com's Cat Page: here you will find a surprisingly broad collection of cat care related links.


PetSmart: I'm sure you all know about this place! In addition to being a great place to shop for your pets, it is also the place that allows us to show off some of our kitties who are up for adoption. There are many locations throughout Southern California (plus you can shop on line too!).


Feline Leukemia (FeLV): this link brings you to the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine website, which has a lot of good information about this subject.


Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine Feline Health Center: this searchable site can help you with many medical questions you might have about your feline.

Who We Are
Site Info

Cats In Need is a volunteer-run, non-profit, no-kill Southern California rescue group organized to bring homeless adoptable cats and potential life-long owners together.

The Brea Chapter operates out of the PETsMART Luv A Pet Centers located at: 205 W. Imperial Highway, Brea, CA  714-255-9188.

Our group presents a selection of available cats at our Saturday Adoption Shows. Hours vary store to store but generally cover 1p.m. to 4p.m. Many adult cats are on display during the week at the Luv A Pet Center. Kittens are usually kept in foster homes, and are on display only at Adoption Shows on Saturday or Sunday.

Cats In Need promotes pet sterilization and responsible veterinary care. All available cats have been spayed or neutered as well as tested for FeLV and have received their first vaccination. We offer local low cost veterinary information.

As a non-profit organization, our group depends on adoption fees and private contributions to operate our shelter. An adoption fee of about $75-$125 helps us cover the costs of medicines, shots, pet supplies and veterinary fees including sterilization and FeLV testing for our rescue animals.

Cats In Need has a goal of lifetime placement for its rescue cats. Adoption and home requirements are outlined by a Board of Directors who reserve the right to review all adoption applications. For details see Adoption Procedures. The reasons for the application are to help ensure that we match up the right cat to the right family. If you already have a dog at home, we want to make sure that we don’t match you up with a cat that is terrified of dogs. Or if you already have another cat at home, we want to make sure that you don’t adopt a cat that would prefer to be the only cat in the household. These cats have already been through enough stress and we want to try and minimize the possibility of the cat being returned. However, if at any time the adoption doesn’t work out for any reason, Cats in Need will take the cat back.
