Cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Underdog Cat Rescue was founded in dedication to homeless cats struggling to survive. We help those who are lost, abandoned, or feral to ensure their immediate safety and health, followed by assessment of their rehabilitative needs (if any), and/or socialization. We commit to accommodating these needs in foster until ready for placement into safe and loving homes.
We support humane TNR initiatives (Trap/Neuter/Release) for maintaining cat colony populations; but Underdog Cat Rescue takes it to the next level... Trap/Neuter/REHAB (and adopt). Despite myths about feral cats, they are grateful to be rescued from harsh circumstances and develop strong bonds with loving owners.
Since 2009, Underdog Cat Rescue has developed a protocol for successfully socializing feral cats. It is an individualized process in which we gain trust, establish a bond, build confidence, and develop their personality. Meanwhile, we provide the best in high quality nutrition and veterinary care. The result is a healthy, loving companion that brings joy to the home of some lucky person/family who adopts.
We do NOT take in surrendered pets. We are a foster-based organization whose mission is dedicated to urgent rescue and safety from outside. You may contact us if you know of a cat that is urgent. Our ability to intake is subject to space, which is very limited. We can offer information on helping homeless animals in your community.
Fostering saves lives! If you can foster a cat who is ready and waiting for adoption, please contact us! Each one that is fostered or adopted makes room for another to be saved. Check our 'adoptable' list and support our mission by ADOPTING an ~underdog~ cat! Meow.
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.
