Beach City Kitties in a non profit cat rescue in Venice Beach, California, run by me, Katelyn Michele. 

I run Beach City Kitties out of my Venice Beach Bungalow, where I live with my husband-our James, cats-Bella, Jinksie, Jem, Lil Bit, Willie.  

We rescue kitties weekly from the streets and high kill shelters, rehabilitate and foster, then find them chill forever homes by the beach. 

Beach City Kitties’ goal is to end the problem of homeless cats, make Los Angeles a “No Kill City”, and have fun while doing it. 

Beach City Kitties concentrates on cat rescue efforts in Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Playa Del Rey, the South Bay and beyond. After all, what kitty wouldn’t want to live by the beach?
