Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: 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.

Results: • 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.

My daughter just adopted her second cat through Northeast Animal Rescue. Jayme Bader was very accommodating, available and patient. She helped us choose the cutest little guy! She has offered her services and extended herself to all of our needs. My mother has also adopted through this agency and I have never seen her so happy. Jayme has helped me through the process of adopting a blind cat through ASPCA which was going to be euthanized due to her disability. This organization has a true mission and is devoted to rescuing these beautiful animals who cannot speak for themselves.I would not deal with anyone else and will continue to support Northeast Animal Rescue. Keep up the good work.

I am an animal lover and owner of a 12 year old cat. I love and adore her. I often visit northeast animal rescue and donate also. I see how they lovingly care for their rescues. All the volunteers I have met are beautiful people.
It brings tears to my eyes to see the lovely creatures in cages but I also know they are so well cared for until they find their forever home.
Please find it in your heart to adopt and / or donate. God blesses people who are kind to animals.

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 adopted a cat almost two years ago. She is wonderful. All my friends could not love an animal more. She was well cared for before I adopted her. Jamie Rosenthal had a lot to do with it. My vet Dr. Moyer told me she does wonderful work saving cats. Especially cats with poor sight. This rescue gives above and beyond to save animals. Hazel has been the best thing that ever happened to me lately. She is such a joy. I want to adopt another but I would only go to Northeast Animal Rescue if I do because of the care they give to the cats before you adopt them. All you have to do is take them home. Medically and physically they are in excellent condition. This is a top notched organization.

I have adopted all my cats through this organization. NAR is an incredibly hard-working group of volunteers who are all totally committed to finding loving homes for cats in need while at the same time working to reduce the feral cat population.

I have adopted 5 cats from Northeast Animal Rescue over the past 8 or 9 years. NAR is an amazing rescue organization, so committed to ensuring that their rescued cats find loving forever homes. NAR undertakes to capture, spay/neuter and release feral cats in order to reduce the population of unwanted and homeless animals. This seemingly insurmountable task is undertaken with patience, love and determination! When placing their adoptable cats/kittens, the volunteers at NAR do a wonderful job of matching animal personalities to human personalities in order to ensure the best possible environment for the pet. When it comes to animal rescue organizations, NAR is a shining example of what it means to "rescue"!!
