Eartip Alert - Help Xenon Now!

Chip in to save a life

April 8, 2015

Xenon, a young eartipped cat, was somehow separated from her Brooklyn colony this week and turned in to Animal Care & Control. With just one day to save her Neighborhood Cats had to move quickly - and we did! We've retrieved Xenon from the shelter and found her caretaker. But before she can go home she needs surgery to extract a broken tooth that is painful and making it difficult for her to eat.

$650 will make this little cat well again. Click here to help Xenon now.

UPDATE: Our goal for Xenon has been met and exceeded! Neighborhood Cats has already received another eartip alert for a cat named "Galaxy" and will be using your additional donations for his life-saving medical care. Stand by for more info!

Voice your support for new shelters today!

March 24, 2015

Fifteen years ago the NYC Department of Health was ordered to build full service animal shelters in the Bronx and Queens. So far, there has been no progress. 3.8 million Bronx and Queens residents - and untold numbers of at-risk animals - are still waiting.

The majority of NYC Council Members agree the city needs full service shelters in every borough. It's important they know their constituents are behind them so contact your City Council Representative to voice your support.
