I found out about Northeast Animal Rescue (NAR) when I was looking to adopt 2 cats and found them at the Petsmart store at Haldeman and the Boulevard where NAR shows their cats. I immediately fell in love with 2 Calico sisters that were at the store and applied for them on-line. The screening process seemed to be very detailed and I was impressed with the length this organization goes to when screening possible adopters to ensure the cat gets a good home. Within a day I was contacted about meeting the kittens and I adopted them shortly thereafter. I was extremely impressed with Jayme Rosenthal and the detailed advice and guidance she provided. A few months later, I contacted Jayme again about adopting a male cat and she referred me to several possibilities that might get along with the cats I already had. I found a beautiful male cat among the group and also discovered that he was living with his brother, so I wound up adopting them both to keep them together and they blended in with the rest without problems. I was extremely impressed with the way this organization is run and its caring, friendly group of volunteers. As a result, I wound up signing up as a volunteer and have loved every minute of it!

I wouldn't change a thing about NAR. They do a tremendous job trying to find good, loving homes for the rescued cats.

I am in the process of being a volunteer. The northeast animal rescue is very clean and organized. I am thoroughly impressed at how well kept the cages and play area and the cats themselves are kept. The volunteers are very nice and helpful. You can see and feel how caring they are. It makes me happy to be able to finally offer my services to them and to be a part of their organization.

I volunteer at the NAR site located in Petsmart on the Boulevard. These cats are extremely well cared for. They are out of their cages at least two hours every morning and two hours every evening during the week and a lot longer on the weekends. The workers at the store also stop in to visit. The volunteers not only clean the cages and feed them, but they also play with them and cuddle them. The cats are also switched out of Petsmart into foster homes and back to Petsmart until they are adopted so that they do not spend all of the time they are waiting to find a home in a cage.. In addition to this, NAR is involved in trapping and neutering feral cats then returning them to their feline families - how kind is that! This is truly a wonderful organization!

Northeast Animal Rescue is a wonderful charity because they stay true to their mission and use every penny donated for their cause in reducing the feral cat population in Philadelphia and its surrounding counties. They are reactive in that they sometimes pull needy cats from local animal shelters to foster and find homes for them so they are not destroyed. I have fostered cats on behalf of NAR rather than the shelters because they are easier to contact than the shelters and far more cooperative. NAR is a proactive rescue also- they sterilize feral and stray cats. They educate the public and help people that feed colonies of feral cats get their fed cats surgically sterilized through the TNR process. I have had them personally help me trap cats to get sterilized preventing hundreds of more unwanted cats.

Northeast Animal Rescue is a great group! They care so much about homeless cats that the volunteers spend several hours out of their busy weeks taking care of the cats--playing with them, cleaning their cages, talking to potential adopters. Adopters find that cats from NAR are so pleasant and friendly because the volunteers and "foster parents" show the cats so much love. I personally have benefited so much from this group--I enjoy being with the cats, talking to other cat-loving volunteers, and helping the cats find adopters. I am definitely lucky I found this great rescue, and so are all of the cats in its care. I hope NAR is able to keep caring for homeless cats for many years to come.

I am a foster home and an adopter of 2 Northeast Animal Rescue cats. It is a wonderful group of people who work tirelessly, day in and day out. They will pair you up with a cat that will be a perfect match. They always go the extra mile for their animals and the adopters. Please support this rescue.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Win the lottery and purchase a property to best support even more cats and kittens in need. I would love for them to be able to have a veterinarian on this wish-list property. I could go on, but sadly I havn't won the lotttery yet. Maybe next week :)

I've known the founder of NAR for many years and have watched her grow this rescue from the roots up. The NAR team of volunteers works tirelessly to find loving families for homeless cats in the Philadelphia area and to control the feral cat population while educating the public about the importance of spay/neuter. They also help to find low cost spay/neuter services within the community.

I'm a long-time volunteer with NAR as well as an adopter. Northeast Animal Rescue is just the best!

I first came into contact with Northeast Animal Rescue when I was looking to adopt a cat. I was impressed immediately with the operation, all volunteers seemed to hold exceptionally high ethical standards and the focus was not on moving the animals into homes quickly, but on finding the appropriate home for each pet. I was even a little alarmed that I wouldn't pass the rigorous screening process!! Ultimately, the time and energy spent on screening potential adopters yields long term placement, and during my subsequent time with NAR as a volunteer I have heard of very few unsuccessful adoptions. I began volunteering with NAR about seven months ago, and I am impressed with the constant communication between volunteers and the high standards set for work performed by all volunteers. The cleanliness, comfort and care for the animals is the number one priority. I would encourage anyone looking to adopt a pet to contact the Northeast Animal Rescue, the volunteers have a great knowledge base of the animals in their care, and they are honest with potential adopters about issues concerning each pet, and will give honest feedback about an animal's temperament and behaviors. The process is lengthier than with an animal shelter or a pet store, but the quality and care is exceptional!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Upon adopting my pets: Whisper and Kiva. I was able to spend ample time with each cat prior to taking them home, so there were no surprises after taking them in. I couldn't be happier with the process.

I'm not sure that I would make changes to the function of the organization. Everything seems to run very well. However, I'm always surprised that people aren't more aware of NAR. If anything I would attempt to increase awareness of the organization.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the commitment to finding forever homes for the pets.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

sometimes intense! But committed to the work.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

run forever. I would hate to see it expand too far, because for me the greatest value is the relationships between foster "parents" and their animals.

Ways to make it better...

it was great!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not enough public awareness. If people knew what they were doing, they would solely adopt cats through them.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I think I've said a lot!! I'm running out! :-)

Without the help of Northeast Animal Rescue, I don't know what I would have done to help a feral Mom cat and her kittens that were in my yard. Northeast Animal Rescue lent me a trap, something I had never done before and I got all the kittens and the Mom cat. Had the Mom spayed and NAR found foster homes for the kittens. It takes a very dedicated rescue to help a total stranger, it's now years later I'm also a member of NAR. Education is the key to helping the over population of stray cats and kittens. No cat or kitten gets adopted without being spayed or neutered. And NAR does their best to educate the public on the importance of spay and neutering their pets.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

learning more and more about the personality and traits of cats and kittens. I have had dogs my whole life and didn't know a whole lot about cats, I'm still learning.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Getting to meet the dedicated volunteers and the joy of seeing all the cats and kittens that have found their forever homes through NAR.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very nice and well educated on the care of cats.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have a bigger facility and save more cats.
