13thstcats.org is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, no kill rescue; all donations are tax deductible.
We are a community based cat rescue group. We trap- neuter- and release feral cats and find loving forever homes for socialized stray cats and kittens.
13th St. NAC Cat Rescue is sponsored in part by the 13th Street Neighborhood Advisory Committee (NAC) www.13thstnac.org and The Northside Neighborhood Association of San Jose, California.
I have been wanting to volunteer somewhere that involves caring for animals for a very long time, I love animals of all types and hopefully if I do get the opportunity to volunteer here, I can tell my friends or colleagues what a great experience I had and how easy it was to sign up for it. I will most likely be volunteering with my 18 year old sister since I am only 15, in other words, she can also recommend this organization to her friends or colleagues.
I have been a foster home for over thirty cats and kittens for 13th St. Cat Rescue over the last 2+ years. Yes, I fall in love with every cat/kitten I house but I also feel great joy when they find a forever home. My input directly affects the prospective adoption. I get to love kitties until they are adopted. It is a great way to get your kitten fix, love em, find them a home, then get some more. I rarely have a kitty for longer than a couple of months and receive great support from the group concerning any questions I might have. Please consider being a foster home for a kitty. Try it once and you might become hooked!
