2014 Maddie's Pet Adoption Days

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.

We look forward to working with Maddie's Fund again this year, and participating in 2014 Maddie's Pet Adoption Days on May 31–June 1.

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.


Adoptions: Interest in adoption was slower than usual for much of the year. With the opening of the new Fairway supermarket at Second Avenue and 30th Street, near our Kips Bay Petco adoption center, we're hoping for increased adoptions in 2014.

Please contact us if you can long-term foster (or adopt!) any cats or dogs.
