Saving and Improving the Lives of Stray Cats and Kittens in Philadelphia
City Kitties is a non-profit cat rescue dedicated to saving and improving the lives of stray cats in the West Philadelphia and University City area. We rescue strays from the streets, give them proper veterinary care and a loving foster home, and adopt them out to happy new families. The organization is a no-kill rescue, meaning that we will never euthanize an adoptable or treatable animal, and will never turn away a homeless animal due to illness or injury. We also assist with TNR (trap, neuter, return) of feral (wild) cats.
City Kitties is run entirely by volunteers, from our board of directors to our foster homes. We have no paid staff and rely on the generosity of our donors to continue our work.
City Kitties was founded in 2005 by Louisa Alexander & Lori Horwedel. Since then, City Kitties has grown to a collective of volunteers with a common goal: prevent suffering among helpless stray cats and kittens, and find loving homes for as many as possible.
