About Us !
Urban Cat League was founded in 2002 by five people who share a deep compassion for cats and kittens that live on the streets of New York City. Whether they were abandoned, lost, or born on the streets, the fact is that without our help urban street cats simply don't stand a chance. Check out our first newsletter to see the details of how we got started.
URBAN CAT LEAGUE acts internationally as a resource for information about all aspects of humane care for street cats through our website urbancatleague.org. Locally, it provides care and protection to New York City's street cats by helping to find the best situation for each cat that comes under our care. This includes adoption, spay/neuter, socialization of kittens and adults and relocation to a safer outdoor location. Most importantly, Urban Cat League responds with aid that best suits the individual interests of the cat or colony of cats in need.
