Northeast Animal Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in Northeast Philadelphia. We are dedicated to saving homeless, unwanted and abandoned cats. We depend solely on donations, which are tax deductible. NAR focuses on having feral (wild) cats spayed and/or neutered to decrease overpopulation. In the process of helping feral cats, we come across many who are friendly. These cats receive medical attention with the help of local veterinarians, and when ready, are put up for adoption. All our cats are cared for in foster homes. As a general policy, we do not take owner-surrendered cats. Our goal is to place all cats in stable, loving homes where they will be cared for and never be abandoned, abused or neglected.


• Our budget for 2010 was $42,000. • We spent $25,000 on medical expenses alone. Of this $8,000 was for spay/neuter surgeries along. • We use a low-cost clinic for our spay/neuter operations — cost of surgery and vaccinations. for a feral cat is now $30.00. Tests for FIV/FeLV cost us $15.00 each. • 99% of the animals we help are not spayed or neutered before reaching us. All are sterilized before being placed in their new homes or being returned to their monitored colonies. • We are a foster home-based rescue. At any given time, we have approximately 100 cats in foster care. • We placed 163 cats in loving homes in 2010. • As of October, 2011, we had already placed 106 cats in warm and loving homes. • Northeast Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) charity under the I.R.S. Code.

Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked with Jayme and NAR for a number of years now and have never been disappointed with the care and professionalism shown to the cats, and to the potential adopters. I do the trapping myself, but use NAR to get the cats neutered, vaccinated and tested. Some of the cats are returned to the colony while others are fostered and socialized. Recently, I trapped a litter of four kittens: two were returned to the colony and two stayed with me to be socialized. Once they were ready to be adopted, Jayme posted the one on the NAR website (the other already had an adopter) and found her a good fur-ever home. I have worked with other cat rescue organizations and NAR is definitely a 5 star in my book!
