    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.

    Volunteer opportunities:

    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.

    Comment:  I found the woman at Brooklyn Animal Action to be really helpful. I think they’re overwhelmed because the Cat Cafe is not open and this is kitten season so there are lots of kittens in need. I’m sure they’ll respond when they can. As of a couple weeks ago, they were accepting foster-to-adopt applications. You should fill out the info sheet or adoption form, which should lead to a response back.

    Comment:  We just adopted a kitten from Brooklyn Animal Action, a local all-volunteer non-profit, and they told me they are looking for foster homes for cats and kittens. Basically you keep the animal in your home until they find him or her a "forever home." It's a great way to test-drive having a new pet without a major commitment.We really appreciated that our new kitten had been fostered so that she had not been in a shelter because they were able to tell us a lot about her personality and whether she would be a good fit for us. And of course they are also looking for permanent homes for animals as well but that's a whole nother commitment!Email them here if you're interested in fostering brooklynanimalaction@gmail.com

    Comment:  I can't say enough about this wonderful non-profit organization. We have both adopted a wonderful cat through them, and have also been helped by their cat fostering support. I don't know what we would have done without them when we needed to find a home for our cat.Please, please consider a tax-deductible donation to them, and if possible, help them out by fostering cats and kittens for them while they find them loving, permanent homes. They really need the help and they're such wonderful people.
