AdvoCat Rescue grew out of network of rescuers on a social media site. Some cat loving locals would come together when a stray cat or a litter of kittens needing rescue would show up in the neighborhoods of Forest Hills, Rego Park, and Kew Gardens Queens. Eventually the group decided to make it official and AdvoCat Rescue was born.
Now we have a wonderful network of fosters, transporters, socializers and adopters that help cats all get the medical care and loving homes they need and deserve.
Our main focus is placing cats in suitable and loving homes. Most of our cats and kittens come from either the streets or municipal kill shelters. By pulling a cat from a shelter, it creates space in the shelter so that another cat can be rescued.
Often cats that are found in community colonies are abandoned friendly cats and are well-suited to return to the good life as a companion pet. If they hadn't been fixed (often is the case with dumped animals) there will be kittens. We arrange to have cats and kittens like this trapped (if they are too scared to pick up), vetted, and if suitable for adoption, they will go to foster homes while we seek out a purrfect furever home for them.
If you would like to adopt a cat, please see our cats currently available for adoption, or email us and tell us more about your home and we’ll try to match you with the perfect new feline friend!
AdvoCat Rescue considers a loving home for every cat the best possible outcome.
Please note that since we are a foster based-rescue (no facility) our cats and kittens are shown by appointment only once an application has been submitted and approved.
