Finding Loving Homes For The Cats In Our Care


Happy Tails

Read Our Success Stories


Carla was found on the street very hungry and very thin. She was actually walking up to people meowing and crying for food. She immediately received medical care and was put into a foster home. She was a petite pretty girl who sadly waited quite longer in our habitat than we thought she would. Finally she was placed into her very own home and is doing great!

CITCR found this handsome boy crossing the street in Queens. He went to the vet for a full check up. When he was tested for FIV/FELV He tested positive for FIV+
This made his chances for adoption limited. In the right home with proper care and a good diet he can have a normal life. Andy was fortunate and found a home that would care for him.

Henri James

We found James on the streets of Queens. He was lost, dirty and hungry. James went into foster care and in a matter of weeks he looked and felt better. He found his forever home and his name became Henri James. This cat who was found in the street has now become King of his very own castle.

Lucky Boy

Poor Lucky Boy was rescued from a real bad situation.  He had some How fallen down a 20 foot drop area by a school in Brooklyn.  We were able to get him into a trap and later into a carrier.  He then went straight to our vet for a total evaluation.  All things considered He only suffered his back claws being scraped really bad and a scratch under his chin.  He got lucky once again and was adopted by a nice family who changed his name to Larry.

On a day when we went to AC&C in Brooklyn to rescue a few cats a volunteer pointed to this very scared frightened kitten. His ears were back, his nose was scraped, his eyes were just pure terror. She had said, nobody would take him because they thought he was aggressive and would never become friendly and for that reason they may have put him to sleep.  I saw fear in those sad eyes and we took him into our care.He improved each day and he became a sweet heart.He now has a Mom and Dad, and three cat siblings.   Sparki now gives love and gets tons of love back!
