Charlie is Counting on You!

Please help a hurt kitten walk and see again

March 17, 2016

When Neighborhood Cats rescued Charlie the kitten this week we knew he'd need a lot of care. A hit-and-run driver had left him with a broken leg, a ruptured eye and a long, hard road to recovery. 

We're determined to do what we can to make Charlie whole again. You can help. Please make a donation to save Charlie today.

The Thousands

Portraits of street cats are a call to action in this new photo exhibit

February 21, 2016

On Sept 23, 2015 Neighborhood Cats launched a 1,000-cat TNR project aimed at reducing the numbers of ferals and strays on Jersey City's streets. That effort is the inspiration for The Thousands, a new photo exhibit focusing on the widespread plight of unowned cats and the urgent need for effective Trap-Neuter-Return programs to help them.

The Thousands will open in Jersey City on 3/4/16 and will be on exhibit through 3/31/16. 

By popular demand The Thousands has been extended through Friday April 8!
