Our Story

A Happy Purr Lives in

Your Heart Forever

Julie Haas, Founder

The power of one.  When Julie founded Garlic City Kitty Rescue, she was one woman taking on rescue, adoption and  the humane treatment of feral cats. She opened her home to abandoned cats and kittens and tirelessly dedicated herself to establishing a not-for- profit rescue. Now, you can be the one to make a life changing difference.  Community support, one volunteer at a time, makes it possible to save lives.

"Julie Supported Us the
Whole Time..."
"We fell in love with Houdini when we met him at Julie’s.  He is the sweetest cat!  The first few days he was stressed with the transition but Julie supported us the whole time to make sure he was okay and, gave us tips to help him adjust.  New he is bonded with us and such a wonderful addition to our family.  Thank you, Julie!” Melissa Prader, Hollister, CA

Looking Ahead

There's a lot to do!  Shelters are overcrowded. The number of families ready to foster or adopt falls way behind the need. Millions of innocent cats and kittens, nationwide, are euthanized each year.  It's up to you to take the lead. Make your contribution. Together we can build on the power of one and create a movement of kindness, ending cat and kitten suffering.
