Give Me Shelter Project, Inc.

Give Me Shelter Project, Inc. is a 501(c)3 not for profit animal rescue, education and advocacy group in NYC. We believe that each animal counts and are committed to changing the world, one animal at a time. Purpose: Give Me Shelter Project strives to elevate the societal value of animal life through various activities including: • Rescue and placement of unwanted animals • Provision of necessary medical care • Promoting trap-neuter-return (TNR) • Adoptions • Support for and collaboration with individuals and other animal welfare organizations • Education of the public on the importance of sterilization, basic animal care, humane treatment of animals, and the value of animals as an integral part of our society. History and Accomplishments: Our story began in 2008 when we were part of a small group of independent rescuers who came together to rescue 88 cats from an eviction situation. Most of the cats were not friendly enough to be adopted. We searched and found placements far and wide (some cats were flown to a sanctuary in Arizona!). We undertook a similar rescue of 64 cats the following year. The scope of these rescues took an enormous toll on us physically, emotionally and financially. Many agencies advised us to turn the cats over to the local “kill” shelter. Instead, we felt compelled to consider the life of each individual cat and do all we could to protect that life. We were able to sleep at night knowing we made the right decision. Along the way, we rescued numerous other individual cats who found themselves in dire situations like Allison who was trapped in an abandoned building, and Becky who was blind and living on the street. Hobo was hit by a car and found on the side of the road with a broken arm. We now have a total of 44 cats in our care being fostered in several locations. Many lives were saved. Many would have been euthanized because the needed medical care was too expensive. Our Veterinarians saved a total of seven cats that had a deadly case of feline distemper. Many of these wonderful cats have been adopted into their forever homes. We have since rescued many more who are waiting for theirs. We have several cats with ongoing but treatable medical conditions. All donations go directly to the care of the animals to cover the cost of veterinary care, food and litter.

True cost of adopting from a rescue versus getting a "free" kitten. We do all the hard work and pay for medical care so that you get a healthy, ready to go kitten. No weekly trips to the vet, no worrying about when vaccinations are due, no worrying about when to spay/neuter. Adopt a rescue kitten today!!
