Join us this June for Adopt a Shelter Cat Month and help us give our longtime residents the happy endings they’ve been waiting for.


Our Mission

We value the compassionate and respectful treatment of the animals and the community we serve. We aim to enhance the short and long-term well-being of the felines in our region. Our goal is to provide care to those felines in need and raise awareness of population control and health management of felines.

About Us


Save Our Cats and Kittens is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to finding forever homes for neglected cats and kittens throughout Northwest Florida. We receive animals from military families, families who are unable to continue care, among many other reasons. Sadly, in times of distress, pets are most often the first to be neglected, being abandoned to care for themselves. 


Our organization has been devoted to caring for community cats and kittens since our founder, Sara DeMonbrun, recognized the need in 1993. Started in her home, Save Our Cats and Kittens has found homes for thousands of animals that otherwise would have faced an uncertain future. SOCKS is also dedicated to controlling overpopulation by spaying or neutering every cat or kitten before it is adopted. In coordination with local veterinarians and other rescue animal foundations, we are able to provide low-cost solutions for veterinary care. 


Our ability to help people and the cats and kittens in our community is completely dependent upon the tax-deductible support of our patrons and community.
