HUMANE CAT ORGANIZATIONS OUTSIDE
LOS ANGELES COUNTY & THEIR SPECIALTIES


I purposely don't have links listed to any web sites for these groups. Most groups have several volunteers answering their phone lines, and are set up to help people this way. Their webmasters don't all answer e-mails on a timely basis.
