My story

Please meet this STUNNINGLY Beautiful and Tender SHELBY !

This wonderful and graceful 2 year young girl was rescued out of a stray colony in East Harlem and is nothing than a pure joy in feline affection and tender beauty.

It's barely to believe that this beautiful and sensitive kitty survived the harsh environment and maintained their calm and gentle features.

SHELBY is a tender beauty with gorgeous fur and green eyes, gentle in everything she does and has a very laid back demeanor letting her other foster siblings and especially her brother Stone always come first. She may need a bit time to warm up to strangers but when finally settled in she will be a purrfect playful kitty that enjoys petting and human love.

Otherwise she can be also such a goofball as well, chasing toys, rolling around and playing with the furry foster gang, enjoying life in the fullest.

As Shelby loves to hang out with other kitties, we are looking for her for a furever home with another gentle and playful furry companion or of course she can be adopted with her preferred playmate and brother Stone as well, separately listed

Shelby is fully vetted with all shots, neutered/spayed, tested negative for FIV/FELV and are ready for their forever home - may be yours?

Please email me if would like to meet these stunningly beautiful pair!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

If you have fallen in love with one of our rescued animals, you need to 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 would like to adopt, a basic contract will need to be signed to adopt any of our cats.
We also ask for a donation to support our veterinarian expenses and to continue our rescue efforts.

Go meet their pets

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

More about this rescue

We are an East-Harlem-based rescue group of volunteers committed beyond all odds to take stray cats and kittens off the street by Trap-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 also try to improve the lives of animals that suffer or are homeless by engaging our communities. We focus particular on animals that are "unwanted" but beautiful inside out - Come and visit and you will see how precious they are!
