What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In working with other NYC cat rescue groups, the issue of accessible adoptions became prevalent to us at CCNYC. While practicing kindness towards cats is common across many animal welfare nonprofits, I noticed a disturbing trend of not extending the same compassion, understanding, and thoughtfulness to many humans looking to adopt cats. In 2018, I wrote a research thesis on geographic and financial accessibility of cat adoption in New York City. Through analyzing 17 distinct NYC cat rescue groups' websites, adoption applications, and adoption process, and through GIS mapping of adoption events, I found my suspicions to be correct. Lower income people of color in NYC have significantly less ability to adopt cats from rescue groups due to the location of events, and discriminatory adoption processes, including financial assessments. Cat Castle sees this as a huge problem towards the welfare of cats and humans alike, and strives to make adoption possible for any cat-loving NYC family.
