PURR-PHILADELPHIA URGENT RESCUE AND RELIEF
Location1833 S 11TH STPHILADELPHIA, PA 19148 United States
PURR is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping homeless, neglected, and abused cats and kittens in the Philadelphia area. PURR is 100% volunteer-operated and funded by donations from the community.
PURR was born out of a desire to handle Philadelphia’s cat problem in a more effective and humane manner. Recognizing Philadelphia’s unique landscape, our multifaceted approach considers the role that feral, friendly strays and pets from low-income homes contribute to cat overpopulation.
Our initiative is to facilitate increased TNR, provide sterilization surgery for pets and provide friendly strays with behavioral assessments and rescue placement.
We believe every cat who wants a home deserves a home. PURR serves to create best-practice initiatives, support and amplify the work of partner rescues and shelters, coordinate and enhance neighborhood relationships and build an effective volunteer network to strategically serve cats and those who love them.
