My story

This full of personality guy is looking to retire. He was part of a TNR project in Poughkeepsie NY, returned, and captured again 2 weeks later. He had a wound on his back paw that healed very nicely, and in that healing time his charming personality came shining through!

He's fairly demanding for treats, attention, food, attention. HE IS A LAP LOVE!! If you are looking for a companion in your quiet home - he's your guy. We have nicknamed him Mr McSweetie. He's a motor boat and a perfect lap cat at nearly 17 pounds. Gangsta will keep you nice and toasty!

Experience with cats is a must. He can be pretty assertive and not for the faint at heart. We love this guy and know his match is out there!

Our required adoption donation is $150 per kitten or $125 per cat (older than 9 months). All our rescues are up to date on shots, microchipped, tested for FIV/FeL - Gangsta is FIV+. They are dewormed, treated for parasites and free of fleas. Each is spayed or neutered and given a rabies vaccination. An application must be completed to be considered to adopt from Stray HELP. You can download it from here:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BywbjguyJTiLb2tfV1ROOEdZMVE/view

If your application is approved we conduct a home visit for final approval of adoption. To view more pictures of cats and kittens in our program visit our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/StrayHELPNY/. 

We raise our rescues in foster homes and are familiar with their individual personality. They are accustomed to people, phones, radios and tv; all the noises of home life. We work with perspective parents to find their perfect match. 

We are the adoption partner of #PoughkeepsiePetSmart and you can visit some of our available cats and kittens there during business hours.

More about this rescue

Our mission is to rescue and care for stray and homeless animals while providing humane education to the community.
We work with members of the community to help cats in need. We conduct trap/neuter/return and place projects and train home and business owners on how to properly care for free roaming cats on their property and in their neighborhoods.
We focus in southern Dutchess County, but help people throughout Dutchess, Putnam and Orange counties by connecting them with local rescues that can work with them, loaning equipment, coordinating spay/neuter clinics and offering guidance.
