City Critters is a New York State 501(c)(3) nonprofit formed in 1994. Our mission is to improve the lives of companion animals in our city by rescuing and placing stray and abandoned cats, promoting spay/neuter programs, and working with members of our community to find humane solutions to problems involving homeless animals. Donations to City Critters are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Our financial statements and IRS designation letter are available upon request.

2015 in Review

In 2015, our volunteers placed over 200 homeless cats through our adoption centers, while helping hundreds more by providing rescue services, vet care, pet supplies and advice, and by lending support, including fiscal sponsorship, to TNR (trap-neuter-return) work done by independent rescuers working with feral colonies in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.

Made possible by a grant from Maddie's Fund:

Thanks to a generous grant from Maddie's Fund received at the end of 2015, we are working on increasing our outreach through social media and strengthening our foster network in order to help as many cats as possible — including cats that need extra TLC to get them ready for adoption, or sspecial promotion to attract adopters.
