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.

Metro Cat Rescue is a 501(c)(3). Donations, gifts, and bequests are US tax deductible. You can also check if your employer has a corporate matching gift program.

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.

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.

ZG was abandoned pregnant last year at the Metro Cat Rescue fundraiser store. She bonded to me and wanted to be an only cat. Not happy living with other rescues, ZG always was darting out into the hall.Someone sadly lost their cat to cancer. To help Metro Cat Rescue help kittens and cats in need, they donated the bed and other supplies. ZG spotted the bed up on a hamper. She took it down and set up a little bunk for herself. We now let ZG live in the hallway where she wants to be alone as far as felines are concerned.* * *Metro Cat Rescue is a 501(c)(3). Donations, gifts, and bequests are US tax deductible.

This is my mother with our pet cat, Angel. I was one year old then.* * *For a fundraiser, Metro Cat Rescue can use donations of old photos. (They don't have to be pictures of cats!) Color ones are fine, but black and white are better. Send toAnthony OlszewskiCATRESCUE.tv297 Griffith St.Jersey City, NJ 07307Metro Cat Rescue also can use computers, cell phones, tablets and ereaders LESS THAN FOUR YEARS OLD. For more information, please use MetroCatRescue@gmail.com to email.Thank you!* * *Metro Cat Rescue brings inside mother cats living in the streets so their kittens can grow happy and healthy and hope for good homes. When the babies are on their own, Metro Cat Rescue provides a warm and safe place for the moms and continues to care for them. Here's the Link to help Metro Cat Rescue help kittens and cats in need:www.gofundme.com/metro-cat-rescue-homeless-moms/Many hours are spent each day feeding, washing bowls, providing worm medicine and laundering the cats' beds. So that Metro Cat Rescue can do more, we need your help! We've run out of space to take in any additional cats. And there's the time -- with the kittens and moms that we have here now, the day starts at 6am and ends at 11pm.Trying to fit more hours in the day by adding extra effort, I quite literally collapsed from exhaustion. For three days after that, I could only be up for 15 minutes or so and then had to lie down to recover some strength.Metro Cat Rescue needs a bigger and better space. We also need the funds to hire someone -- at least -- part time to help with the chores. Hours are spent cleaning bowls and dishes. Having an automatic dishwasher would make a world of difference. A lot less time would go towards drudgery that then could be used caring for the cats.Metro Cat Rescue has no cushion of dedicated funds for medical care. As it stands now, for each and every vet visit -- standard checkups and neutering, too, not just emergencies -- has to be paid for by pleading for help on Facebook. This sometimes means that a sick cat suffers for days waiting for medical attention.Metro Cat Rescue receives no grants or taxpayer dollars. To help kittens and cats in need, we rely on community support. So that Metro Cat Rescue can continue this mission and do more, we need your help.

EVERY day we get requests that we don't have the resources to assist with. This means that kittens are born in the street because no one helps us to help them.
