Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We will bring our animals to their forever homes in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx and also New Jersey

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a East-Harlem-based group of volunteers committed beyond all odds to take stray cats and kittens off the street byTrap-Neuter-Release programs, to give them all veterinary care as needed, rehabilitate and foster them when needed, and get them ready to be adopted into forever homes. We try to improve the lives of animals that suffer or are homeless by engaging our communities.

Come Meet our Pets:

All our rescues are in foster homes around Upper East Side and East Harlem and can be shown by appointment.

Our Adoption Process:

If you have fallen in love with one of our rescued animals, you fill out an application form. After approval, you can meet them in their foster homes. If you decide to give one (or) two of them a forever home and adopt, a basic contract will need to be reviewed and signed to adopt any of our cats.
We also ask for a donation to support our veterinarian expenses and to continue our rescue efforts.

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.
