Metro Cat Rescue needs your help so that we can continue to help cats left to die in the streets. We are DROWNING in bills for food, medical costs and supplies. Donate at our GoFundMe Page or click on this Link for the Amazon Wish List. MetroCatRescue@gmail.com is the address for PayPal. Checks can be sent to Metro Cat Rescue, Anthony Olszewski, 297 Griffith Street, Jersey City, NJ 07307. Please DO contribute so that Metro Cat Rescue has the resources to be there to save abandoned kittens and cats.
Anthony Olszewski and friends have been saving kittens and cats for for many years. We intervene where a cat is about to die — like those abandoned to the cruel horrors of the street by heartless owners. We also care for kittens that shelters routinely kill for being “too much trouble” — like Little Blake with ringworm shown here. The Metro Cat Rescue Facebook Page shows just some of the many more cats and kittens that we rescued in only the last few years.
We are formally organized under the name Metro Cat Rescue as a not for profit. All volunteer — receiving neither grants nor tax payer dollars — it’s only with community support that Metro Cat Rescue can save kittens and cats in need.
Our dream is to establish a facility to provide care for homeless kittens and cats with easily treated but contagious conditions — those innocents that now elsewhere regularly are made to die. Sadly, a lack of funds has kept Metro Cat Rescue’s goal on a distant horizon. Without the necessary resources, each day there are cats that we can’t help. Indeed, last summer, there was a dip in donations and adoptions. I would not let the cats go hungry, so I scraped by eating little more than bread, rice and beans myself.
Little Blake the Ouija Cat, is just one of our success stories. On August 20, 2012. she was rescued after being abandoned on Central Ave. near the post office. Too weak to stand, the very young kitten was covered with fleas. She also had an eye infection, ear mites, ringworm and intestinal parasites.
Luckily, the tyke was small enough and the day was warm enough so that her entire body could be dipped in the bathroom sink. The fleas still on the head were carefully removed with a fine comb. And that was the easy part! The other conditions required considerable care and the application of medication.
The second picture is from a couple of weeks later. Strength and confidence growing, Blake here had commandeered the recycling bin as her abode.
Just six months later, Blake has become a regal lady, as she still is today.
Little Blake is only one of the many cats that are happy and healthy today because of Metro Cat Rescue’s quick action.
Please do support Metro Cat Rescue! All too often I’ve had to spend my own grocery money to make sure that the cats are well fed. If Metro Cat Rescue had the resources for more space and basic equipment, there’s so much more that we could do. The donation of a used SUV or van would mean so much. With dependable transportation, we’d be able to save so many more kittens and cats.
It’s secure, quick and convenient to use the DONATE button at GoFundMe. If everyone reading this gave SOMETHING, we’d be well on the way to providing for suffering cats left to fend for themselves. There’s no such thing as a contribution that’s too small. Every bit — little or large — means a lot and makes a BIG difference!
It would be particularly wonderful if you chose to sustain the mission of Metro Cat Rescue by establishing a monthly donation through our PayPal account. The address to use is MetroCatRescue@gmail.com. Any amount will be a huge help. Unfortunately, right now we have no idea what our funding will be next month — or even next week. Helping to make it possible for Metro Cat Rescue to plan for the future will mean so many more kittens and cats will be saved.
Metro Cat Rescue has resumed flea market fundraisers at 3396 Kennedy Blvd (near Griffith St.), Jersey City, 07307. Want to help? Do you have anything to donate that we can sell? Email MetroCatRescue@gmail.com or text 201-205-5390 some pictures of what you want to donate. Anything that we can sell even for $1 is great! Pots, pans, dishes, cups, cutlery, small appliances, good condition toys and games, house plants, comic books, graphic novels, exercise equipment, bicycles, fish tanks, tools, game consoles. . .
Old photos — particularly black and white — are good.
Unfortunately, computers and cell phones over 3 years old can’t be used. (Except for IBM PS2 computers.) CRT computer displays can’t be used. Shoes need to be new in the box. Clothes need to be new with tags. No stuffed toys unless new in the original packaging.

Here's the Link to the Metro Cat Rescue GoFundMe Page to donate:www.gofundme.com/f/metro-cat-rescue A surgeon saw Fluffy today for a growth in an ear. Thankfully, she is a good candidate for laser surgery for the growth in her ear. This is going to be very expensive.Metro Cat Rescue has been caring for Fluffy for around five years. When found, she was living outside under a car. Very calm around people, Fluffy must have originally been a pet in a home. We brought her in just before the weather turned very cold back then. Fluffy is in a large room with several other rescues, but mostly keeps to herself. * * * Here's the Link to help Metro Cat Rescue help kittens and cats in need:www.gofundme.com/metro-cat-rescue-homeless-moms/MetroCatRescue@gmail.com is the address to use to donate with Paypal.* * *Please do support Metro Cat Rescue!
