The Abbot Kitty Lounge is operated by Los Angeles Meow Salvage, a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that rescues, rehabilitates & permanently homes kittens & cats in the Los Angeles area.
The Lounge recently opened in 2018 thanks to the generosity of Terri Tucker at Paws & Whiskers Pet Spa. She was kind enough to open the doors to her pet grooming shop on Sundays when she is normally closed, to allow us to do kitten adoptions in the spacious front area. The response was so popular, she allocated a large portion of the front of her store for us to permanently house our cat rescue operation, and The Abbot Kitty Lounge was born.
Our focus is on stray and shelter pregnant cats, cats with recent litters and abandoned bottle babies. We give the mama kitties a safe secluded spot to give birth and nurse her kittens until they are weaned. Then we have mom spayed and the kittens spayed / neutered and put up for adoption to permanent indoor-only homes. We nurse bottle babies until they are weaned and then make them available for adoption to indoor-only homes as well. We also have several other rescues looking for loving forever homes as well.
We survive solely on donations, and welcome unopened bags of cat food, wheat based cat litter, old towels, items from our Amazon Wish List, and donations in the amount of your choice via PayPal or Venmo. (Tax deductible!) Access to The Abbot Kitty Lounge is also donation based, and helps us provide critical care to our rescue animals.
We are thankful and proud to partner with Dr. Shane’s Veterinary Medicine on Lincoln Blvd. in Marina Del Rey. As a 24 hr. full animal surgical center, they are critical in allowing us to give our rescues the immediate and urgent care if needed, as well as all lab tests, FIV/FeLV, spay / neuter, inoculations & micro-chipping as just the basic treatments given to all of our rescues.
If you are interested in adopting a rescue kitten or cat, please make an appointment to visit the lounge. You must be 18 & older (no exceptions) and the donation is $15 for per person for 30 minutes. If you adopt the appointment donation is deducted from the adoption fee.
