Rescue Right

We rescue dogs and cats in desperate circumstances and place them in permanent homes, and we provide free emergency boarding and vet care for pet owners in need. Pets are family, and we believe in keeping families together.

Founded in 2000, Rescue Right / Community Cats is a New York State 501(c)3 non-profit organization EIN 82-1657969. The heart of our operation is our TNR program, or trap-neuter-return of feral cats. Through this spay/neuter and vaccination program as well as adoption outreach and daily feedings of feral cat colonies, these needy animals are leading happier, healthier lives.

Kittens and tame adult cats rescued from the streets are put into foster care until permanent homes are found. All of our cats are given any necessary veterinary care, are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and loved until they are adopted by a new family. As northern Westchester’s only cat rescue organization, we find homes for over 350 kittens and adult cats each year.

Rescue Right / Community Cats also provides food and low-cost veterinary care for elderly local residents on fixed incomes, enabling them to keep their best friends. We also help owners locate lost cats and assist people who feel they must find a new home for their cat. This is called home-to-home placement and is the very best way to re-home your pet.
