Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

The five boroughs of New York City. In special circumstances, we will consider adopting to good homes in surrounding areas.

About Our Rescue Group:

North Brooklyn Cats specializes in taking in orphaned "bottle-babies" from other rescues and from the streets of our neighborhood. These tiny kittens require round-the-clock care and often don't do well in a shelter environment. We also rescue cats and kittens from the NYC kill shelters. Trap-Neuter-Release, TNR, is a big part of what we do. The friendly stray and kittens that are often found on the streets also become candidates for adoption! We have many years experience volunteering and working for shelters and rescue organizations in New York City.

Come Meet our Pets:

We present a selection of cats and kittens for adoption every Sunday from 2 to 6 pm at Muddy Paws Pet Supplies, 447 Graham Ave., Williamsburg, Brooklyn. North Brooklyn Cats also works with other rescue groups, sharing resources, and participating in group adoption events whenever possible.

Our Adoption Process:

Cat and kitten adoptions require a $100.00 donation, which helps us cover the costs of delivering them already spayed/neutered, tested for felv/fiv, current on vaccines, dewormed and treated for any health problems we were aware of. We generally require that kittens under five months of age be adopted in two's unless you already have another pet. Adoptions require an application that asks for two references and a contract. We deliver your new cat to your home, generally within a few days of getting your application. We are happy to help should you need advice or assistance with your new companion before or after the adoption.

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.
