Be a Foster!

Brooklyn Animal Action is in need of fosters! If you can give a cat or kitten a temporary loving home you will help us save lives!

Consider an FIV+ cat!

Consider an FIV+ cat!

Many people pass over FIV+ cats, but they actually require no special care. Find out more about FIV+ and find out which cats might be a great fit for you!


Brooklyn Animal Action is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to improving the lives of Brooklyn’s animals. Working with our communities we find homes for adoptable animals, facilitate Trap-Neuter-Release programs, perform community outreach and education and advocate for animal welfare. Since 2010, BAA has found homes for over 2,000 cats (and a few dogs) and TNR'd hundreds more. We believe in working together to create a better life for New York's animals.

Help us find a home for these wonderful animals:
LOOKING FOR HOME: Grand the Gentle, Great Ginger
LOOKING FOR HOME: Grand the Gentle, Great Ginger

Male / Tabby – Buff & Domestic Short Hair Mix / Adult
Now known as Grand, after the street where he was found, this sweet boy purrs loudly and head butts his rescuer’s hand for more pets. Because he’s been on the streets, where not everyone is friendly, he needs a moment or two during which you prove he can trust you. Once you earn that trust, you won’t regret it. Grand’s incredible nature is a huge reward! Grand is neutered and up to date with vaccines. He tested negative for FeLV and positive for FIV—which simply means he needs to stay indoors, eat high quality food, and see the vet yearly, which all cats should. If you’d like to meet this gentle ginger, contact Tara Green at catsbkny@gmail.com!

LOOKING FOR HOME: Deaf Teddy Bear Orange Lovebug Cuddler!
LOOKING FOR HOME: Deaf Teddy Bear Orange Lovebug Cuddler!

Male / Orange / Young
Teddy is an absolute sweetheart, and will be your personal cuddler, purr up a storm and let you know that he adores you and is so thankful to be off the street. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, treated for fleas, tested fiv-/felv+, which means he needs to be a solo kitty or with pups but only with other kitties who are also felv+. He is also deaf! This poor boy really needs someone who loves an underdog. If you would like to meet this, sweetest of kitties, please contact claire@brooklynanimalaction.org

LOOKING FOR HOME: Noa, Gentle and Beautiful Bengal Mix
LOOKING FOR HOME: Noa, Gentle and Beautiful Bengal Mix

Female / Bengal & Domestic Short Hair Mix / Young
Recently surrendered along with her sister, Kitty—who is fortunately also up for adoption with Brooklyn Animal Action—Noa absolutely never deserved to be discarded. (No cat ever does!) But not only is Noa stunning on the outside, she’s equally beautiful on the inside, too—just like her sister, whom she loves very much. Now living at Green Farmers Pet Food in Park Slope—where you can drop by and visit Noa as well as her sister, Kitty, anytime during business hours!—Noa is a quieter than Kitty, a gentle girl who can be a bit shy at first. Noa is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and FeLV/FIV negative. If you’re interested in hanging with Noa full-time—or in meeting Noa and her sister, Kitty, together—contact Donna at straycatstrutnyc@gmail.com!

  • Meet Harrison, one of the many cats our rescuers are taking care of. He was recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and FIV+. The excessive hormones affect each of his organs, including an increased metabolism. This constant stimulation can eventually lead to heart failure. Harrison needs to get surgery NEXT WEEK, but the cost can run up to $2,500. His medication alone already costs $100/month. We want to get him healthy so he can find this #RescueCat a forever home! Will you chip in to help permanently cure Harrison’s hyperthyroidism?

  • Thurgood + Liberace; The bonded brother's that could! These sweet 8 month old kittens are “world champion cuddlers and trained dancers.” They prance around their foster home, full of joy and enthusiasm for life—curious, spirited, and loving, despite their humble beginnings. They adore humans and will make any forever family the happiest in the world. They can't wait to be the loves in your life! ♡ Living the rough life of street cats wasn’t in the cards for Thurgood (full orange tabby) and Liberace (white and orange tabby). They were fortunate enough to be rescued and put into a foster home, with a surrogate kitty mama to teach them the wonderful ways of the domestic cat. These bonded siblings are now more than ready for someone who will call them their own and will add twice the love and fun to your home! ♡ Thurgood is the more outgoing one, very friendly, curious and energetic, while his brother Liberace likes to hang back and watch how Thurgood fares before engaging himself. ♡ Thurgood and Li...

  • WINK, it's only Wednesday! Meet, ZOE: a Special Sweetheart's Story... This pretty kitty with a bubblegum pink nose, Zoe, was rescued from a backyard in Brooklyn, where she was persistently friendly and unfailingly good-natured, searching for the right person to take her in. It worked, and she found herself a hero! However, Zoe unfortunately had a very bad infection in her eye, which had to be removed for her own good. ✧ But this little detail doesn’t stop Zoe for a second. She thinks she’s as pretty as ever—and we’re inclined to agree with her! Having one eye doesn’t impact on her health, her mobility, or her personality. In fact, she’s feeling happier and healthier than ever without the infection, and her gratitude for being saved can barely be contained. Zoe loves to be pet and to prove it, she’ll roll over onto her back and show off her belly, the ultimate sign of trust. All this, and her precious purr just keeps on rumbling. We can hardly believe how sweet and friendly she is—which ju...

Zoe is approximately 4 years old, spayed, and current on vaccines. She tested negative for felv/FIV. She’s all-around healthy and ready to meet you! Plus, she can go to a home with or without another cat! If you’d like to schedule a playdate with this special girl, contact Tara Green at catsbkny@gmail.com! ✧
