Kitty was found in Boro Park by a teacher near her school. He'd been abandoned in the garden of a local deli whose owner made it quite clear to the teacher that he did not want this cat on his property. The teacher rescued Kitty and along with her daughter, has been fostering him for the last 3 months.
In this short time, Kitty has gone from a very frightened, withdrawn kitty to a very lovable, affectionate and playful cat. He loves to rub his body against their legs, and purrs and rolls on his back when you rub his tummy. He gives them huge greetings in the morning and in the evenings when they arrive home. He uses his litter box without a problem and also enjoys his scratching post. He loves to play with the cat dancer and runs marathons around the apartment chasing his balls and toy mice. He's even happier when you play with him. Kitty has been vetted, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, and is in A+ good health. While he is still a little timid and shy with strangers, he will probably eventually warm up to anyone showing him love, compassion and patience.
When the teacher first rescued him, Kitty was placed in a room with other cats who were not crated. He seemed very friendly towards them when they approached him leading them to believe he may do well as a companion to another cat.

If you have questions about Kitty please contact Infinite Hope
Infinite Hope is an all-volunteer IRS-approved 501(c)(3) not-for-profit animal rescue. Since its inception in early 2004, Infinite Hope has placed over 1,000 animals in permanent and loving homes. Because we are an all volunteer organization 100% of our funds goes towards the housing, care and placement of our animals.
Our Board and volunteers donate their time and resources toward the cause of caring for and finding homes for abandoned animals, eliminating the problem of stray, unaltered animals in New York City, and caring for special needs animals until a permanent or foster home can be found.
While in our care, all of our animals receive high-quality food, shelter, positive interaction with our volunteers and all necessary medical care, including a complete vet exam, spaying and neutering, (if 5 months of age or older) and testing for communicable feline diseases (FIV and FeLV).
We are fortunate to have a small adoption center at Hope Veterinary Clinic at 390 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn. In addition we have a foster network so that our animals can receive care and attention until we have placed them with a loving and permanent home.
All adopters are carefully screened. Volunteers spend time with potential adopters and available animals, to ensure a good match for all. We are committed to a 100% “no-kill” philosophy and will not accept animals beyond our capacity to care for them.
Shelter Driving Directions
Play dates with our animals are by appointment only. This may either be at a vet clinic or foster home depending on where the animal currently resides. If you are interested in adopting any of our animals please send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Manhattan, Brooklyn & Queens
Potential adopters are required to complete our adoption application; once an application has been approved, the adopter must sign our adoption agreement. All cats are vaccinated, tested for FIV/FeLV, and spay/neutered as part of adoption.
We require a donation of $150 per cat. This amount represents just a small fraction of the actual costs we incur for each animal under our care, and helps us to continue our ongoing efforts.
