City Critters is Moving

City Critters is Moving on May 6th!

On May 6th, we will be moving from Petco Kips Bay to our temporary home in Petco Union Square. Come visit us there and at our adoption center in PetSmart Noho.

Petco Union Square — 860 Broadway at 17th St
Petsmart — 632 Broadway bet. Bleecker & Houston

Keep checking back here and on Facebook for news on pop-up adoption events and for our move later this summer to the new Petco that will be opening in Turtle Bay.


Maddie"s Fund Pet Adoption Days

City Critters is proud to participate again in the Maddie's Pet Adoption Days on May 31 and June 1. Adoption fees will be waived for adoptions finalized during that special weekend. Come meet City Critters cats throughout the month of May so that you can find your special friend(s) and be ready to benefit from this exciting adoption event!

City Critters is a New York State charitable organization licensed to operate in the City of New York for the rescue and placement of stray and abandoned animals. Donations made to City Critters, or paid on our behalf, are tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; financial statements and current IRS Determination Letter are available for review upon request.

2013 in Review

In 2013, our volunteers placed about 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 exceptionally effective TNR (trap-neuter-return) work done by independent rescuers with feral colonies in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.


The Kips Bay Petco is closing, so we will be in various temporary locations for several months until we move into the Turtle Bay Petco.

Can you help during this difficult transition? Please contact us if you can provide a long-term foster home for any of our cats or dogs.



Maddie"s Fund

Thanks to the incredible support, promotion and generosity of Maddie's Fund during last year’s Maddie's Pet Adoption Days event, City Critters placed 80 cats and kittens in new, loving homes. 51 of these kitties qualified for higher adoption subsidies because of their age and/or medical condition. The funds received were applied to our outstanding veterinary bills, allowing us to come current on the majority of our accounts.
