We are urgently looking for foster homes for cats and kittens. Your loving care will help give a rescue cat or kitten a new chance to have a happy future. Every year, thousands of cats and kittens who are not adopted are euthanized in the city shelters. One way to change this is by increasing the number of adoptions. Our fosters care for cats or kittens at home while we work to find their forever family. Fostering allows Anjellicle Cats to get more cats/kittens out of the city shelters and on the path to adoption.
Once you've found the cat of your dreams and wish to begin the adoption process, you only need to email Anjellicle Cats Rescue and fill out an adoption application below or as a word-document for printing.On June 5 in the West Village, 17 "Dancing Ellens" honored Ellen DeGeneres' support of animal shelters and promoted the adoption of cats and kittens from Anjellicle Cats Rescue.Anjellicle Cats Rescue is a no-kill, all-volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping make New York City a no-kill city. We are one of the most active cat rescues in New York City. We rescued over 1500 cats in 2014 and 1200 of those were at immediate risk for euthanasia at the city shelter and saved by us with only hours to spare. As a New Hope Partner with Animal Care and Control (ACC), we work closely with the ACC to save sick, injured and so-called unadoptable animals from being euthanized. Each rescued cat is given love, medical care and welcomed with kindness into a foster home with the goal of adoption into a permanent, loving home."We were thrilled with this event," said Anjellicle Cats Rescue Founder and Director Kathryn Willis. "It was a wonderful way to kick off the summer and do our part in getting the word out about the overpopulation of cats and kittens throughout New York City. There is a proliferation of kittens this time of year, and working with NYC's Animal Care & Control, we have taken in so many that need homes. It was wonderful that we were able to meet and add new foster people and adopters to our network for both the kittens and the adult cats through this fun event."The "Dancing Ellens" helped attract passersby to cats and kittens available for adoption from Anjellicle Cats Rescue on a North Shore Animal League America mobile adoption unit.Choreographer Jim Cooney rallied the 17 "Dancing Ellens" and taught them a Degeneres-inspired choreographed dance to one of the comedienne's favorite songs: "Shoop" by Salt-n-Pepa.
