How to Help



Brenda’s Cat Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization funded entirely through donations. Because we are run completely by volunteers, all donations go
directly to the medical care of cats, as well as to their food and supplies.
  • Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
  • Many companies provide matching gifts to donations their employees make to non-profit organizations. If you don’t know whether your employer offers a matching program, please ask the human resources department, or consult this list.
           Click the orange button at the top right of the screen to donate via PayPal
           Use Venmo: or in the Venmo app: @brendascatrescue 
           Or, send a check to:   Brenda's Cat Rescue
Suite 45, PMB #90
701 Cathedral Road
Philadelphia, PA 19128


There are many items we need to help us care for our cats. Please consider donating any of the following:

  • Canned and dry cat food

  • Gift cards to grocery stores, pet stores, etc.

  • Clorox liquid bleach/Clorox wipes/trash bags/paper towels

  • Meat-based (human) baby food

  • Laundry detergent

  • Forever stamps 

For convenience, our full wishlist is now available for viewing and shopping on Amazon:


  • Fostering

  • Socializing shy cats and kittens

  • Transporting cats to and from vet visits

  • Helping at adoption events



Can you spare a few hours a month? We have many opportunities to suit your schedule:

  1. Two-hour shifts at our adoption center at PetSmart store on Chemical Road in Plymouth Meeting. (Our volunteers are at PetSmart twice a day, 365 days per year.) Some volunteers commit to one or two days a month; others come more often, calling it "their decompression site." Whatever time you can give to our cats will be appreciated.

  2. Periodic transportation help. We often need people to transport cats and kittens to and from vet visits, bringing them back to either their foster home or our PetSmart site. 

If you would be interested in doing such volunteer work, please email Crissy.
