Happy Meow-lidays with love and cheer! Come see all we accomplished this past year!
This year alone, we:
Rescued 235 cats!
Facilitated 219 adoptions!
Met 11 major medical/ special needs cases!
This year, we also partnered with some awesome businesses like @douglassinfinity , @alenwich and @greenhouseloft to have fun, raise money and continue our mission!
Garbage is a handsome tabby kitty named because he was found as a stray eating out of a garbage can. After only a few nights of being fed real cat food, he walked into a carrier and into the arms of his foster, hoping to find his forever home. Garbage is a total sweetheart. We suspect he was a former housecat because of his love for people and for cuddling! Garbage loves to play with toys or sit on a sunny windowsill and watch the birds. As long as he’s in the same room as you, he’s a happy boy! Garbage is up to date on his shots and already neutered. He would do best being the only cuddlebug in the house–your new best friend is waiting for you today! Apply to adopt Garbage!
Silly a beautiful tabby girl with distinct markings and big green eyes. She loves to chase balls and play with her toys. She is playful, adventurous, and loves exploring. This brave kitty is a charmer who loves to be brushed and loves to snuggle with her humans! She is also very chatty and always has something to say. Silly would make a great addition to any home, and would do well either with a companion she could play with all day or with another adventurous feline friend! Apply to adopt Silly!
A WORD FROM ONE OF OUR FOUNDERS
2023 has been a year of strengthening our volunteer force, growing our animal care department, and gearing up for a big update in early 2024. When we began at the end of 2017, we were just a few women who found some cats in their apartment complex and wanted to help them. Since then, we have rescued over 1,342 cats and kittens! This is all thanks to our supporters, donors, volunteers, foster families and adopters. I could not have imagined while we were plucking kittens from dumpsters in 2017 that Pittie Party Rescue would blossom into such a strong and thriving rescue organization and community for cat lovers across NJ.
-Angela Diekhaus, Executive Director
WHAT'S UP NEXT?
On January 20, 2024 , we will hold our Destress with Kittens at the Ale N ‘Wich Pub in New Brunswick, New Jersey! Come practice self-care with us by playing with some of our adoptable kittens. This is one of our most popular public events, and tickets go fast. Get your tickets now!
Check out some of our other upcoming events, and stay tuned on our social media for more events in 2024!
We got crafty in 2023! Our talented volunteers formed a crafting department and have sewed, painted, crocheted and designed a whole slew of merchandise for our supporters and their pets! These items were for sale at craft fairs and makers markets throughout the year and brought in over $1,000 of donations to the rescue! We look forward to expanding this department in 2024 with even more options. You can find some of our crafts at our Etsy shop!
THE NAME GAME
Over the past 6 years, Pittie Party has found homes for over 1,000 animals in New Jersey. One of our favorite things to do is pick names for our rescued friends! In all our time as an organization, we have never once repeated a name. This allows us to keep the best possible records of our furry friends, even when they leave our care. You can be assured that any forever friend you get from us is one of a kind!
Some of our favorite names of this year include Ferrerro Rocherre, Teefs, Garden State Parkway, and Curly Fry.
SPEAKING OF CURLY FRY….
This was the Year of the Hind Leg Cases!
Curly Fry was one of our many kittens who had leg issues this year. Curly Fry had a spine injury that led to Paresis, or partial paralyzation. Curly fry had incontinence and mobility delays, but he got into a great routine and with a bit of extra care learned to thrive with his condition!
Other cats this year had hind leg issues that required amputation. Leg amputations only occur during extreme circumstances and is generally a last resort when other non-invasive procedures are ineffective.
However, cats that have one of their legs amputated or limited mobility in some of their legs usually bounce back and learn to live a healthy and full life using only three legs. In fact, most cats are back to walking after only 24 hours!
Your donations directly help cats like Curly Fry to live their fullest lives, no matter what their medical history. Donate here, or see below on other ways to help our rescue!
