Placing Cats and Kittens for Adoption in NYC

The Feral Cat Initiative does not take in cats or kittens for adoption or foster placements. We suggest you contact the two no-kill shelters that take in cats from the public on public intake days as follows:

No-Kill Shelters That Accept Cats and Kittens

Bideawee

Bideawee's public intake is by appointment only. To make an appointment, call (212) 532-4455.

ASPCA

The ASPCA's public intake day is Tuesday. Please call the ASPCA at (212) 876-7700 x4150 for details.

Other Cat/Kitten Placement Options

Other companion animal adoption organizations may also be able to help you. For a complete list of New York City animal shelters and rescue groups, please visit the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals website at www.AnimalAllianceNYC.org.

If you can foster the kittens, you can also try to adopt them out on your own. Always ask potential adopters to fill out an Adoption Agreement and ask for a donation fee of at least $75 per cat or kitten; giving cats or kittens away for free is strongly discouraged because it can imply they have no value.
