Brooklyn Animal Action is a Brooklyn-based group of volunteers committed to improving the lives of animals in distress, facilitating Trap-Neuter-Return programs, finding homes for adoptable animals, performing community outreach and education, and engaging in advocacy. Since 2010, BAA has rehomed over 600 cats, as well as the occasional dog or pigeon.
Visit cats being fostered in the neighborhood to give them social attention, or foster a cat in your home until it can be placed in a permanent home. Volunteers also help with transportation, computer support, photography of cats up for adoption, and many other flexible projects. See http://brooklynanimalaction.org/volunteer for more details.
Donations of cat food, toys, kitty litter, or other cat supplies are always needed. Email for drop off information.
Most projects are for adult volunteers. Older kids are welcome to visit fostered cats and school volunteer credit sign-off is available.
