All of the cats are now safe at the Animal League headquarters! Our rescue team arrived with the remaining felines and they will be available for adoption as they become ready. Stop by to meet our available animals today!

Update: June 21, 2013

We recently responded to a call for help for over 100 cats from New York with the help of our friends at Rachael’s Rescue (read the full story below). The cats’ caretaker had taken ill and was no longer able to provide for them and so far 45 are now in the safety of our Adoption Headquarters in Port Washington. Rescues are scheduled to bring the remaining felines back to the Animal League over the next couple of weeks. Some of the rescued cats are pictured here and more can be seen on our Facebook page.

So, if you’re looking for a new feline friend, now is a great time to come adopt! All ebony felines are free throughout the month of June at our Port Washington Headquarters – so come visit today!

Rescue Story

On June 13, 2013, North Shore Animal League America’s Rescue Team arrived from upstate NY with 40 young adult cats, ranging in age from one to three years old. Six of them are pregnant.

The cats’ caretaker had taken ill and was no longer able to provide for them. An area veterinarian had taken them in on a temporary basis, but reached out to Animal League America to find these innocent animals permanent, loving homes. Our Mobile Rescue and Adoption Unit will take two trips to rescue all 90 of the felines. The first unit will be returning to our Port Washington Adoption Headquarters on Thursday, June 13th with the first 40 of the felines.

After being evaluated by our medical and behavioral teams, the cats will begin to go up for adoption over the weekend.

If you are looking for a wonderful feline to add to your family, now is a perfect time to do so. To find out about all the wonderful Mutt-i-grees available for adoption in Port Washington and around the country, please click here.
