Buttons's Story...
Please contact Jennifer ( for more information about this pet.

Please help my mom out with me!  My name is Buttons and we don't have a place to live right now.  I am getting older (12 years old) and it is very stressful going from place to place and occasionally even staying in the car.  I'm really a good boy, very affectionate and friendly once I get to know you.  I can also be quite vocal and enjoy conversations.  I like to watch birds out the window too.  I don't have front claws and I've lost a few teeth over the years, but it doesn't stop me from playing with my toys or enjoying life.  My mom softens my dry food for me so it's easier to eat and maybe once a week she gives me a can of tuna.  I get along ok with other cats and some dogs, but if they have claws they sometimes take advantage of me.  My mom just needs someone to take care of me until she can get us another home and she is more than willing to buy my food, litter, etc. while I'm with you.  Please contact us soon so I can be more comfortable and my mom won't worry about me as much.  When you do bring me home, make a 'safe' room for me while I get used to the smells and sounds of my new home.  I'll adjust better this way!  This will also give me a 'safe' place to go if I get scared.  Please call A.C.A.T. 505-323-ACAT (2228) or email for more info or questions!  You can also inquire about fostering cats because we always need fosters!  The number fosters we have determines how many kitties we can help!  Visit our website too for more info on this great organization that saved my life!

About ACAT (Albuquerque Cat Action Team)

About Our Rescue Group...

We are Albuquerque and New Mexico's first no-kill, all volunteer organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of stray, orphaned, abused and neglected cats. We are exclusively a cat organization.

The Mission of the Albuquerque Cat Action Team:

1. Provide a safe haven in the form of foster homes for stray, orphaned, abused and neglected cats and kittens in the Albuquerque metropolitan area.
2. Provide veterinary care to the cats and kittens who come into our program and ensure that all cats and kittens who are adopted through our organization are spayed or neutered before adoption.
3. Relocate cats and kittens into permanent, loving homes through our adoption program.
4. Educate the public regarding the necessity of spay/neuter and responsible pet ownership and provide counseling and advice regarding cat behavioral and care issues.
5. Welcome all volunteers into the A.C.A.T. family where respect, love and support are extended to all.
6. Limit pet over-population by engaging in the trap-neuter-return (TNR) of feral cats in our community.
7. Provide low-cost spay and neuter services for cat owners.

We give alot of cats (and kittens) their second, third and maybe ninth chance! Ultimately, without foster homes, many cats wouldn't have the chances that they deserve. So many cats already end up abandoned on the street, sick, hungry, homeless, or in shelters where their fates would be very uncertain. We try to help out by taking on some of these needy cats and taking them into our homes. If you think that you could provide a foster home for a cat, please call (323-2228), email A.C.A.T. at

Come Meet Our Pets...

PetsMart at the corner of Academy and Wyoming, Albuquerque, NM. Fridays 4-8pm, Saturdays 10am-6pm and Sundays 11am-4pm.

Our Adoption Process...

An adoption application (which can be downloaded from our website and filled out prior to coming to the adoption clinic) needs to be completed, an adoption contract, PetsMart release form and transfer of ownership (if cat has had a rabies shot) form that gets sent to the city for licensing need to be signed. You will receive the records we have on the cat up until the adoption and the foster parent's phone number . The adoption fee is $85.00 and that includes the cat (or kitten) already being spayed / neutered and current on their shots.
