About Our Rescue Group:

KittyKaretakers of Queens is working to help reduce the number of homeless cats and kittens in Queens, New York. We originally began rescuing and caring for stray and feral cats. In 2001, KittyKaretakers of Queens officially became a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit, no-kill, all volunteer corporation.

KittyKaretakers' most important goals are:
- to find homes for as many homeless cats and kittens as possible, and
- to reduce the number of stray and feral cats living on the streets.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do not have a specific facility for you to see our cats and kittens. Many of our cats are socialized in foster homes. As a result, we get to know our cats and kittens very well and can provide detailed personality descriptions to prospective homes. Visits are by appointment only. Please contact us at kittykaretakers@yahoo.com, and we will be happy to make arrangements for you to meet your new potential feline companion.
Please check our website regularly for locations of special events and adoptions we are having. If you are interested in a specific cat, please e-mail to verify that the cat you are interested in will be present that day.

Our Adoption Process:

If we have an animal that is the right match it can go home as soon as the application process is completed and approved. The adoption will be finalized by bringing the new companion(s) to your home.

We are a no-kill animal center, so all cats are safe with us until a new home is found. We are looking for permanent homes for all of our animals in the best way we know how. Prospective adopters are carefully screened as we strive for a "match made in heaven." All of our pets come with a lifetime guarantee that if at any time, for any reason, an adoption does not work out, KittyKaretakers will take the animal back. Lifetime homes are our ultimate goal.

Kittens are adopted in pairs or must go into a household with already another cat or dog. Our fee is $80 for one and $140 for two cats. This fee helps cover the cost of spaying or neutering, initial vaccinations, medical care and tests, flea control and de-worming, and the care of the animals for as long as it takes to find a new home. The fee not only covers the expenses of the cat being adopted but also the cats that remain in our care.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
