Mission

We are a 501c3 not for profit organisation dedicated to rescuing leukemia positive cats and FIV positive cats. Our mission is to provide these cats with lifelong homes where they live out their lives in peace and harmony. We want to help educate people about this disease so they will be less fearful of it, and consider adopting Feline Leukemia Positive cats and FIV positive cats and ferals too. We are a small independant grassroots 501c3 organisation where we give these cats the best life they deserve. We are fully transparent and seek to run our organisation in an ethical and moral way, as it is not about us. It is about the animals. They come here to live out their lives in dignity , with much love, attention, respect, and the proper medical care that these cats do require.

Notes from the nonprofit

We are now in our twelfth year of operation. We currently house 37 senior cats. We have over 10,000 followers on our Instagram and Facebook pages. We have received the Great Non profits Top Rated badge for the years 2019, 2020, and 2021. We have now relocated to the magnificent Glen Oaks Farm in Millbrook, New York. We have received wonderful reviews from our supporters who have written testimonials of their visits to our relocated Sanctuary in 2021. More people are starting to now understand that Feline Leukemia as well as cats diagnosed with the FIV disease are happy cats that can live for many years provided they are well cared for. A cat diagnosed with FELV & the FIV+ disease is NOT a Death Sentence. They require diligent ongoing care that they most certainly deserve to have. We have received grants for our Special Needs cats and continue to be acknowledged for our work by many other foundations and organizations. We thank them so very much for acknowledging us.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We hope to be able to make NYC a no-kill community. So that one day we may be able eradicate all kill shelters from the U.S.

We want to educate the public that special needs cats deserve loving homes and with some TLC they are adoptable as well.
The FELV+ cat is no longer a death sentence.
These cats can live asymptomatic for years.
The Fiv+ cat can live a normal live expectancy much like a non Fiv+ cat.
Shelters need to work harder to start finding good foster homes for these special cats that deserve a chance.
Rescue groups need to work together to find good homes for all special needs pets.
TOGETHER we can ALL make the changes to educate the public to help the animals find
happy homes.
We are their voice.



We want to educate as many people about Feline Leukemia to better understand the disease so that they may find loving homes.
We plan on getting as much press about our organisation through radio shows,tv shows,articles written on us,as well as talking in public venues about Feline Leukemia and the need for a more compassionate way of thinking.

'Special needs' animals are SPECIAL.

We have worked in tandem with many Animal Welfare organisations and 501c3 rescue groups throughout NYC.
We work closely with the Rhinebeck Animal Hospital where our cats receive the best medical care for their ongoing
health issues.
We have received many grants from venerable organisations who believe in the mission of Aslan's Cats, and have helped us to grow and achieve our goals.
We have been in existence for over 12 years and 2022 will now mark our 12th year anniversary since our inception and incorporation in 2010.
We thank all of our grantee's for believing in us.
We are honored to be working with them towards ending animal cruelty and advocating
for humane animal welfare.

We have created a HAPPY SMILES dental program for our special needs felines at the Sanctuary.
We have increased our grants consistently as more venerable organisations are choosing to help us further our mission at Aslan's Cats.
We have won the 2019, 2020, 2021, Great Non Profits badge for the work we have done for all the cats we have helped in the rescue community since 2010.
As of 2022, we currently have 37 senior and special needs cats at their wonderful new location in Millbrook, Ny.
