Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

All of Nassau & Suffolk Counties on Long Island and the Tri-State area. We do not have resources to deliver pets, so adopters must come to us to pick up the cat.

About Our Rescue Group:

A Home at Last is a very small, all volunteer, 501(c)3 non profit cat rescue and adoption group. We do not have a shelter and rely on private foster homes to care for the cats and kittens, therefore, space is very limited. We concentrate on rescuing cats out of our own feral colonies, socializing them and then finding loving permanent homes for them. We also help educate the public on the benefits and how-to's of TNR (trap/neuter/return) in their own neighborhoods.

Come Meet our Pets:

Since we do not have a shelter, we rely on our website on Petfinder, AdoptAPet and various adoption days held at local pet shops and community events in our area to get our cats and kittens seen so that they may find loving homes.

Our Adoption Process:

We require an adoption questionnaire be filled out prior to visiting the cats in their individual foster homes. Once the choice is made to adopt a particular cat, we ask for a $65 adoption donation to help us cover the costs for the medical care given to the animal. All cats are tested for felv/fiv, treated for worms, ear mites, fleas or other internal parasites as needed, given age appropriate FVRCP vaccines and spayed or neutered if older than 5 months. For kittens less than 5 months old, a certificate for a FREE spay/neuter is given at the time of adoption. There is also a $35 refundable spay/neuter deposit collected on all unspayed kittens. That deposit is refunded upon proof the spay/neuter was done on the appropriate date according to the contract.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
