Little Wanderers NYC is a grassroots 501c3 non-profit organization rescuing sick and injured cats from the five New York City boroughs.
WHAT ARE OUR OPERATIONS LIKE?
Little Wanderers NYC runs solely with the help of volunteers. Our core volunteers help to maintain daily tasks and rescue needy cats off of the tough NYC streets. We focus on rescuing street cats with the help of our rescue team and placing them in foster homes until they find their FURever families.
WHAT IS YOUR MISSION?
Our mission is to rescue and TNR as many street cats in NYC as possible. We strive to never give up on a cat, regardless of their illnesses or their challenges. We believe that all cats deserve a place to call home and a family who will love them. LWNYC hopes to give this to all cats who come into our care in the most timely manner possible.
WHERE ARE WE LOCATED?
Space in New York City is really expensive and requires a staff to maintain the space, therefore we do not have a physical shelter location and rely on foster families to care for our cats. We hold adoption events where prospective adopters are able to meet cats and kittens who they are interested in adopting.
HOW MANY CATS HAVE YOU RESCUED?
In 2018 ALONE, we helped more than 650 cats! Our efforts stretch from rescuing and homing stray cats to TNR’ing feral cats and colony management.
