In an effort to keep our community safe and healthy, we have made the decision to close all of our off-site adoption centers in PetSmarts, Petco, and Pet Supplies Plus. We are still accepting online applications and processing adoptions. We encourage you to check out our available cats on our website at www.forgottencats.org. We will update everyone when we re-open our centers.
During this uncertain time, our shelter cats have very little opportunity to find forever homes. We expect our adoptions to decrease drastically. And unfortunately, our intake will increase due to kitten season.
We’re asking our community for help.
Can you open your heart and home
during these difficult times and foster a shelter cat?
Some of our shelter cats have already been in our shelter for months. These cats would love nothing more than to get out of their cage. As you practice social distancing, why not snuggle up to one of our feline friends?
We need your help now more than ever.
If you can foster a cat(s), please FILL OUT OUR FOSTER FORM with your name, phone number, who lives in your home (people and pets), and vaccination status of current pets. Our foster coordinators will get in touch right away.
Pick up would take place at our shelters in Willow Grove, PA and Trainer, PA (close to Claymont, DE).
Thank you and please stay safe.
Happy Endings!!! Sometimes a cat finds her forever home in a way that can only be described as destiny. Hazel is a shy girl who was staying at our adoption center in Jenkintown, but didn’t seem happy there so we were just getting ready to take her back into foster care when the perfect human found her. Here’s an update!
“I want to thank you again for helping me take Hazel (Masha) home with me. She has truly been a pure blessing in my life.
A month before I actually adopted Hazel, now Masha, I found her on Petfinder. The second I saw her, I knew that she was the cat for me. I kept on looking to see if there were any cats closer to me in any shelters but I always ended up finding my way back to Masha. She was the only one in my favorites on the website. One weekend, I came home and it was just by chance that I went into PetSmart. While there, I decided to check out the cats for adoption and there was Masha! I couldn’t believe it. I had no idea that she was there, I didn’t know she was out of her foster home. It was just by chance that I was home that weekend, it was just by chance that I went into PetSmart, and I would later find out that Masha had only been at the center for a few days after leaving her foster home.
I’ve had her for a little more than a month now. And the timid, scared kitten that I had brought home that was too terrified to take a single step while I was awake has blossomed into a curious, playful and loving addition to the family. She is by my side anytime I’m studying, circles around constantly to be pet and sleeps next to me every night.
I’m so happy to have been able to adopt and give this angel a home.”
Dalton came to us from Forgotten Cats 10 weeks ago.
Our lovable PHILLY cat!
Dalton came to us from Philly. He was very shy when we first met him, and we were told he was a jumper which on the first day he came home with us he decided he wanted to be included with our grandkids pictures as well which below is a picture of him less than 2 hours of coming home with us.
I could not get over how big of a cat he was. As I was looking at other cats that they shown me at the pet store this cat kept standing out.
No, he was not a kitten which I first wanted, and yes he loves to jump which I was hesitant on wanting this but I thought why not take chance on this older cat.
We are so glad we did! He adjusted very well to the family and truly is living the good life now. I’m so glad we took a chance on this big guy. He is so loveable and the cutest cat he possible can be. Thanks, Forgotten Cats for rescuing him.
Happy Endings!!! Squeaks came from a feral colony in Sussex County, DE, a site where unwanted cats are often dumped. He was already neutered when we found him, and was found to have both FIV and cerebellar hyperplasia. CH affects a kitty’s sense of balance and while the condition is manageable and not life-threatening, it can be much harder for cats with the condition to find a home. It can be even harder for a cat who also has FIV, which is a manageable but highly stigmatized condition. Luckily for Squeaks, the perfect family came along a few months ago. They already had 2 cats, one of whom also has CH and is deaf, and they were ready and willing to provide a safe home for another cat with special needs.
Now Squeaks is living the good life in his forever home. He was renamed Frito. His new dad shares, “he will never know what it is like to be cold or hungry or unloved ever again!” We can tell how happy he is and we’re so happy for him. Congratulations to Frito and his forever family!
