Friendly, fearless, and chatty, Pugsley had a scary start as a rescue cat. He was dumped next to a busy Philadelphia intersection. Thankfully, a kind person pulled over and brought him to their city shelter – and then we brought him to Brooklyn!
Pugsley was born blind, and like most blind cats, he has learned to compensate for his lack of vision. He’s a cheerful fellow, and he adores people. He’ll happily greet his caretakers at the door, and quietly meow until he gets a good head scratch. Pugsley adores belly rubs, jingle balls, and he loves a vigorous brushing. He’s good with other friendly cats too!
Blind cats require very little special care. They do best in an uncluttered home with no stairs and appreciate a roomy litter box.
Pugsley is 2 to 3 years old. He is overweight and needs a quality wet food diet to help him lose the unwanted pounds. He is neutered, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV negative, and microchipped. Please email BrooklynBridgeAnimals@yahoo.com to arrange a play date in his Windsor Terrace foster home.

Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, Inc.
Our rescue group was formed in December 2007, but all our Board Members have had extensive experience rescuing and working with abandoned animals. We often work with other rescue organizations to find appropriate and safe foster and adoptive homes for our pet clients. We regularly go to areas with abandoned animals and collect them. The animals are taken to a licensed veterinarian examined, treated and spayed or neutered. Every effort is made to work with the animal and our foster and adoptive families to find a suitable forever home.
For those animals who are truly wild and feral, we release the animal in a safe and secure location after it has recovered from its medical treatment. We also work with certified wildlife rehabilitators to rescue injured and orphaned wildlife. Our organization is focused on improving the welfare of the abandoned animals in need of help in Brooklyn. In furthering that goal, our resources are focused on the animals.
Aside from a few minimal overhead costs such as our website and phone services, our entire budget is spent on animal care such as medical and food costs.
