All About Cats Rescue is a recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Our mission is to improve the welfare of stray and abandoned cats and kittens throughout Long Island, NY. We aim to achieve this through the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of homeless felines from animal shelters, found stray, abandoned, neglected and/or abused. We strive to educate the public on responsible pet ownership and promote spay/neuter. We are dedicated to end the tragedy of pet overpopulation by opposing pet stores selling live animals and irresponsible over breeding of companion animals. Approximately 5 million healthy, loving, adoptable dogs and cats are killed in the United States each year because there are not enough homes for the millions of animals being bred. For every human birth, approximately seven cats and dogs are born. Do your part - please spay and neuter your pets!
1 - Find a Cat: Either come in to our rescue center and find a cat you are drawn to, or search our available cats online at Petfinder.com. Be sure to check back often as updates are made daily. You can even have an email sent when a cat is found that matches your search criteria. 2 - Let Us Know: Notify the All About Cats staff when you have found a cat you want to adopt either directly or through Petfinder.com. 3 - Follow-up Contact: After receiving your inquiry, we will get in contact with you if we haven’t spoken already. 4 - Complete an Adoption Interview: It is important to us that our cats are placed in loving long-term homes. Compatibility is assessed, and we make sure that adoptive “parents” fully understand the commitment that it will take to raise a cat. While this is not a complicated step, it is necessary to ensure that cat and potential new owner are a perfect match. Both medical and behavioral information will be reviewed, and policies and services will be explained. 5 - Needed Food and Supplies Discussed: We will make sure that the new owner is knowledgeable about what their new family member will need. For added convenience, our facility includes a well-stocked store. 6 - Adoption Fee Collected: The nominal fee we charge helps cover the medical care of the cat, as well as food and transportation costs. It also serves as a general donation which helps us continue our rescue efforts. 7 - Take Your New Friend Home: At this point, you can take your newly adopted cat home. And, remember, we are always here to advise or assist along this journey with your pet.ings.
