About Our Rescue Group:

City Critters, Inc. is a small 501(c)(3) in Manhattan that performs local cat (and some dog) rescue, adoptions, and trap-neuter-release for community cats. We take in animals from the streets, or from homes that can’t keep them any more. Many come from our overwhelmed city shelter system (Animal Care & Control of NYC), which must accept any
animal brought into its facilities and therefore has to euthanize thousands each year.

Come Meet our Pets:

We have two adoption centers: PetSmart at 632 Broadway (between Bleecker and Houston) and the Petco in Union Square (at 17th and Broadway). Cats are there all the time, and adoption counselors are available weekend afternoons and by appointment.

Our Adoption Process:

You fill out an adoption application, we discuss it with you, and check personal references. If everything checks out, there's a $100 adoption fee per cat, and we deliver the cat(s) to the home as part of a home check.

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.
