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.   Please DO donate so that Metro Cat Rescue can be there to save abandoned kittens and cats.

Anthony Olszewski and friends have been helping cats in need  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 (Link below)  shows just some of the many more cats and kittens  that we rescued in only the last few years.

We recently began operating under the name Metro Cat  Rescue and hope soon to establish a formal organization.  All volunteer -- receiving neither grants nor tax payer dollars -- we depend on community support.

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 left on the sidewalk by a trash can near a 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 were well fed.  If Metro Cat Rescue had  better facilities and a used SUV or van for transportation, there's so much more that we could do.

It's quick and convenient to use the DONATE button.  If everyone reading this gave SOMETHING, we’d be well on the way to providing for suffering cats left to fend for themselves. THANK YOU!

Sunny was a feral kitten found in a back yard. She was so scared at first that for months she hid in a box whenever anyone was in the room. Sunny now is happy, healthy and relaxed. A warm afternoon means a nap with sweet dreams.

Giving 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.

Little Pat was neutered this week. He's a delicate boy, so he's still recuperating.

A Metro Cat Rescue volunteer saved Little Pat last Labor Day weekend. The then tiny kitten had lost his mom and was crying piteously while trying to hide in the wheel well of a vehicle.

Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home!

Clara is starting off 2018 healthy and happy. Clara does not like other cats, so she has her own space all to herself. The room is heated, but Clara still likes best to sleep in her little box bunk over a radiator.

A Metro Cat Rescue volunteer found Clara sick and abandoned under a tarp on a motorcycle. Thankfully, this senior lady only had an easily treatable ear infection. Metro Cat Rescue continues to care for Clara. Her life as an older cat is comfortable and happy.

I lived in Jersey City for 3 years and was "the cat guy" for feeding all the strays and taking man in. All my love to the cats without homes.
