My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Please note: Mario can be an only cat, and he would probably do fine with another mellow cat.

Buongiorno friends! Meet Mario (who we think of as Super Mario!). That’s because this boy with the very dapper tuxedo coat is everything you could want in a feline friend. Mario is absolutely the sweetest cat you will ever meet. He will greet you at the door, lay on your lap for hours, and comfort you when you need a friend. He is the kindest soul to both his human friends, and any kitten he meets. He is outgoing and social, and will join you and company for a social gathering at home, or curl up alone with you for some TV time.

Mario had a tough early life out on the streets, but that has not changed his kind heart. He became infected with FIV, but that should not be a barrier to adoption. Refer to this article for more information:

Mario is a happy guy, ready to love you. Want to meet Mario? You can contact us here or better still, for faster processing, fill out the editable PDF adoption-application form at and email it to

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

You can see our adoption process here:

Prior to adopting one of our wonderful pets, you will be asked to fill out an adoption application. Upon approval, you will sign an adoption contract and pay the $150 adoption fee, which covers the cost of spay/neuter and vaccines for your new companion.

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

Most of our cats are in private foster homes, so an approved application is required to arrange a meeting. There is no fee for the application, and no obligation. We usually start with a virtual meet & greet, and most of our fosters also allow in-person meet & greets if one is desired after the virtual meet & greet.

More about this rescue

Who we are
For Animals, Inc. is a TNR (trap, neuter, return) group based in Queens, NY. We are a New York State not for profit Corporation with (501) C-3 status. We are an all volunteer organization that has been rescuing and caring for feral and abandoned cats since 2008.

What we do
The focus of our operation is a TNR program. For Animals, Inc. rescues stray and abandoned cats and then transports them to a veterinarian office where they are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and checked for general health. Afterward, they are fostered in a cage free environment until they are adopted into safe, loving homes.

Why we do it
With tens of thousands of feral cats on the streets of NYC, our focus is on TNR as an effort to humanely reduce the overall population, one colony at a time. By neutering & spaying the feral cats in the colony and adopting out friendly strays and kittens, the colony stabilizes and begins to shrink over time.
