Rescue Spotlight: My New Cat, Inc.

The slogan of My New Cat, Inc. is “Finding homes for homeless cats.”  Based in West Lafayette, IN, this non-profit rescue organization works to find permanent, loving homes for stray, abandoned and abused cats and kittens. They are not a shelter, but rather a network of volunteers who provide foster homes and care for these cats until they are adopted into forever homes. While these cats and kitten are in foster care, they are provided with medical care such as vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. They also have “barn cats” that are usually feral cats available free of charge to responsible homes with a safe outbuilding to house them.

Interested in adopting? The My New Cat website has a listing of cats and kittens available for adoption, as well as an on-line adoption application. If you are not able to adopt, there are lots of other ways you can assist this organization. If you live in the area, you can volunteer to provide a foster home for a cat in need.  My New Cat relies upon public donations which go towards cat care expenses; a donation of $35 will cover the cost to spay or neuter and vaccinate a homeless cat or kitten prior to adoption. You can also donate necessary supplies such as cat food, cat litter, towels, cat toys and cat beds.  PetMeds was proud to help support this organization with a donation of pet supplies.
