"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake.  Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our souls when we look the other way."      - Martin Luther King, Jr.

What We Do

We operate solely out of foster homes, which are crucial to our ability to take in and protect cats until we find their forever homes. Foster houses are ideal because foster parents get to know the personalities of the cats, allowing us to match the right cat to the right forever home.

 

VET CARE

All of our cats are healthy and ready for adoption: they are all tested, spayed/neutered, treated for fleas/worms, and vaccinated. We work with rescue-friendly vets and clinics who understand and support our mission.

 

We work primarily with the following veterinarians:

  • Animedic Vet Clinic

  • Caring for Cats (Dr. Mara Guth)

  • Chestnut Hill Cat Clinic

  • Compassion Vet Clinic

  • Liberty Vet Clinic

  • Northern Liberties Vet Center

  • Steinbach Vet Hospital

  • Veterinary Specialty Emergency Clinic (Dr. Jerome Glickstein)

  • Wissahickon Creek Vet Hospital

.

OUR TNR WORK

In order to reduce the suffering caused by the over-population of cats and kittens, we engage in trap, neuter, release (TNR) activities, trapping large groups of cats living in colonies. All cats are sterilized, vaccinated, and ear-tipped (the universal symbol that a cat has been sterilized). Cats that are clearly feral are returned to their colonies; cats that have clearly been socialized are placed in foster homes until permanent homes can be found.
