Black Cat Rescue - Somerville Pet Shelter

Black Cat Rescue

Black Cat Rescue is a No Kill cat rescue organization in Boston, MA. Did you know that black cats are only half as likely to get adopted as cats of other colors? Neither did we! Black Cat Rescue strives to change those odds for black cats in Massachusetts. Our all-volunteer network of foster homes is dedicated to saving the lives of homeless black cats and kittens by providing quality foster care while actively seeking loving, permanent adoptive homes. As an organization, we work to improve the public image of both black cats and animal adoption by making black cat adoption a positive experience for all involved. We fully embrace the tenets of the No Kill movement. Our foster cats come from all over Massachusetts. We accept owner surrenders as well as strays directly off the streets or from local shelters and rescue organizations.

Adoption Process

(1) Cat Adoption Profile. The Cat Adoption Profile helps us get to know you and what you are looking for in a cat companion. Complete your Cat Adoption Profile now to get started! (2) Meet Our Cats. Once we have processed your Cat Adoption Profile (typically within 48 hours), our Adoption Coordinator will contact you to set up a visit with one or more of our foster cats. Because all of our cats are in foster care, you may need to visit more than one foster home if you would like to meet multiple cats. (3) Adoption. If you decide to adopt one of our cats, our Adoption Coordinator will work with you to make transportation arrangements, complete our Adoption Agreement and process your $125 adoption donation to help defray veterinary costs.
