Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 325 cats and kittens that were abandoned outdoors or in empty homes, from area animal shelters, or from families who could no longer care for them.

Programs: We have a Pet Food Pantry program for local residents who need help feeding their cats. In this way, we can help keep cats in their homes and with their families.

Mission:
We are proud to be the only cat-exclusive, free-roaming, no-kill orphanage in Alexandria, Va. We have no paid staff and rely solely on private donations. KSC has been in operation since 2003, and was previously known as The Albert Foundation for many years before becoming King Street Cats.

Our mission is to provide a safe haven until forever homes can be found for the cats and kittens in our care, and to educate and assist the community in regard to cat welfare. We accomplish this through outreach to the local community by providing information on proper cat care, behavioral problems, and medical issues involving cats. We also assist local residents in locating and retrieving lost cats, and assist individuals through the cat adoption process.

We promote spaying and neutering and all our cats and kittens are sterilized and fully up-to-date on vaccinations prior to adoption. We also provide post-adoption support for adopters and anyone else that needs cat care advice. Because we only work in the area of cat welfare .... we know cats!
Results:
On average we help rescue, provide safe haven and find forever homes for over 300 cats and kittens each year.

We come to King Street Cats all the way from Australia each year because it is such a wonderful non-profit where the cats benefit from the incredible work of the people involved. We brought college students with us the last two years on a field trip and they were amazed by how happy the cats are to... more »

I have volunteered with dozens of organizations over the years and I can say, without a doubt, and all my heart, none compare to the MAGIC of King Street Cats! I was immediately welcomed with open arms and introduced to our adorable kitties -- each one with their own little story -- their own ... more »
