Want to help rescue animals but are not able to be a foster parent?
We are looking for Reliable and Trustworthy Volunteers to help us transport our cats and kittens in the NYC and surrounding areas to and from vet visits, to foster homes, and to their furever homes.
Most of our pickups and destinations are in Queens, Manhattan, and Brooklyn.
Volunteer as much or as little as you like. You are not obligated to accept an assignment, often our needs have little or short notice, so if you can help out, we are grateful but if you are not available, that's ok too.
All cats and kittens will be in carriers/crates for safety and to keep your vehicle clean.
AdvoCat Rescue's Mission is to move cats from the streets to safety by providing medical care, foster homes, and then, ultimately, permanent homes
AdvoCat Rescue is a volunteer cat and kitten rescue based in Forest Hills, Queens. We rescue and adopt to the NYC Metro and surrounding areas.
100% of funds raised go to medical care, vetting, supplies, and rescue projects for area cats and kittens in need.
AdvoCat Rescue grew out of network of rescuers on a social media site. Some cat loving locals would come together when a stray cat or a litter of kittens needing rescue would show up in the neighborhoods of Forest Hills, Rego Park, and Kew Gardens Queens. Eventually the group decided to make it official and create a real rescue group.
Now we have a wonderful network of fosters, transporters, socializers and adopters that help cats all get the medical care and loving homes they need and deserve.
We often find cats in community colonies that are either dumped house cats or community cats that are well-suited to live an indoor life. We have even found kittens as young as 2 months who were TNR’d and left to live a hard life outdoors. We will work with these cats until they are ready to be placed in loving homes.
AdvoCat Rescue considers a loving home for every cat the best possible outcome.
We are proud to be a Best Friends Network Partner and a New Hope Partner Organization.
