Do Your Part

Give Animals the Love and Care They Deserve

Tiny Kitten

Bring a loving animal into your home from CIHS. Our humane society cares for stray and feral cats in our community. We are a no-kill shelter that is dedicated to providing happiness to families and their future pets.

Kitten with Toy

Ensure cats in our care get the food and treatment they deserve so they can live happy healthy lives. Every little bit of contribution goes a long way in making sure each animal is safe from harm and ready for adoption.

Black Kitten

Help out the feral cats in our community by volunteering your time and effort towards them. We spay and neuter several animals throughout the community. With your help, we can reach out to more homeless pets.

About Us

CIHS is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to rescuing animals and providing a welfare organization for them. All throughout Avalon, California, our humane society aids all animals with a focus on the island's free-roaming cat population. Located just 26 miles off the coast of beautiful Southern California, we're the island's only rescue and shelter facility. We are committed to ensuring no animal is killed by providing shelter, adoption, and health services for pets in need.

Our network of tireless volunteers is available, around-the-clock, to provide support and encouragement to our community's efforts to care for its Island animals. We provide education for, and increase awareness of, humane animal practices. Typically, an animal shelter wouldn't keep and care for adult cats like we do. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been caring for animals for more than 25 years. Our veterinarian is a proud member of the Animal Clinic of Catalina.
