Help celebrate four fab years at PetSmart

We can't believe it, but it will be four years ago this month that we opened our adoption center at the PetSmart at 632 Broadway, between Bleecker and Houston. It's a great space, with an area for the cats to play -- or just drape themselves artistically across the floor -- and for potential adopters to interact with them.

To celebrate, we're going all out with an adoption event in conjuction with a PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend. In addition to the 10 cats we normally show there, we'll have a full van of adoptable kitties outside the store. So if you know someone who's been stalling about fostering or adopting...this is the weekend to do it!

While this is the band's debut album, lead singer Devlin Miles has been a City Critters supporter since adopting a crazy, quirky Critter named Demetria -- now Lucy -- more than 7 years ago. The band describes its style as "soulful rock" -- check out the samples.

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.



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.
