Mission

Pet Pride of New York saves the lives of homeless cats in our community by providing sanctuary, veterinary care, and adoption into loving, permanent homes. We take in cats and kittens who are stray, or who have been abandoned, voluntarily surrendered, or orphaned. Once a cat is admitted to Pet Pride, they stay with us for as long as it takes to find their forever home. We operate a no-kill sanctuary and adoption center where our cats enjoy an open, enriched environment during their stay. We also maintain a network of foster homes for our youngest kittens and our expectant and nursing mom cats. Our cats and kittens receive expert veterinary care in our on-site medical center and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Shelter Program

We operate a New York State Registered Shelter/Rescue for homeless and surrendered cats and kittens. We also maintain a network of foster homes. We admit cats and kittens from the Greater Rochester region and surrounding counties. Once a cat is admitted to Pet Pride, they stay with us for as long as it takes to find their permanent, adoptive home. While in our shelter, they stay in an open, enriched environment where they are able to roam freely, interact with volunteers and visitors, and engage in instinctive behaviors. They also receive expert veterinary care right here at Pet Pride.

Population(s) Served

Pet Pride has an adoption program to place our adoptable cats in loving, lifetime homes. The Pet Pride Cat Sanctuary and Adoption Center is open to the public, and we have designated spaces for prospective adopters to observe and interact with adoptable cats. Profiles and photos of our adoptable cats are also available online. We use best practices in adoption screening and follow-up in order to ensure that each cat is placed in a loving home and that the placement is successful and permanent. We provide advice and guidance to keep cats in their homes when appropriate, and we accept any Pet Pride cat back into our shelter if an adoption is unsuccessful. We strive to ensure that no Pet Pride cat is ever homeless again.

Population(s) Served

Pet Pride has a network of volunteer foster providers who shelter and care for some of our cats and kittens in their homes. Orphaned and very young kittens with their fragile immune systems, pregnant and nursing mom cats who need a quiet and private space, and cats who are in need of extra socialization are cared for in these private homes. An experienced Pet Pride staff member manages the program, screens foster care provider applicants, and maintains regular contact with providers. Cats and kittens come to Pet Pride's sanctuary for wellness checks and vaccinations. When they are ready for adoption, the cats and kittens come to stay in our sanctuary.

Population(s) Served

Our cats and kittens receive expert, on-site veterinary care at our sanctuary. We have a cat clinic, an isolation room, and a state-of-the-art surgical suite on premises. Our staff includes a full-time licensed veterinary technician, and we have volunteer veterinarians. Cats and kittens receive exams, diagnostic testing, preventive care, vaccinations, medication and treatment, spay and neuter surgeries, and other surgeries right at Pet Pride.

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to improve the lives of homeless and unwanted cats and kittens. Our vision is a world in which there are no more homeless cats.

We provide expert care, shelter, and adoption services for as many homeless, abandoned, and surrendered cats and kittens as our space and resources allow.

We hire experienced staff to care for our cats, and we have experts in veterinary medicine and cat behavior train our volunteers. Our cats benefit from behavioral assessment, socialization, and environmental enrichment during their stay in our sanctuary.

We strive to reduce cat overpopulation and the homelessness and suffering that result by spaying and neutering every unaltered cat and kitten in our care prior to adoption.

We provide in-house veterinary care in a state-of-the-art surgical suite. This significantly reduces our cats' stress and also reduces the time cats must spend in our sanctuary prior to adoption, which produces a corresponding increase in the number of cats we can help.

We strive to ensure that no Pet Pride cat is ever homeless again. We use best practices in adoption screening and follow-up in order to ensure that each cat is placed in a loving home and that the placement is successful and permanent. We provide advice and guidance to keep cats in their homes when appropriate, and we accept any Pet Pride cat back into our shelter if an adoption is unsuccessful.

We are a New York State Registered Shelter/Rescue. We operate a 4500 square-foot cat sanctuary and adoption center which was recently renovated and expanded. The expansion enabled us to double our shelter capacity and to add a state-of-the art surgical suite. We are fully staffed, and we employ staff members with many years of experience in animal shelter work, feline behavior program management, and foster program management. We have a licensed veterinary technician on staff, and a veterinarian and a certified cat behavior consultant on our board of directors. Our volunteer program is thriving and our reputation is growing. We maintain cooperative relationships with animal rescue organizations whose members work in the field to bring cats in need to our doors.

Pet Pride of New York was founded in 1977 and operated out of our founder's garage on an all-volunteer basis. Since then, we have saved thousands of cats from homelessness and suffering. Over the years, we moved through a series of rented spaces and storefronts before building our permanent building in 2000. In 2023, we completed a major renovation and expansion of our facility which doubled our capacity for sheltering cats. We also added a state-of-the-art surgical suite and are now delivering the majority of our veterinary care, including spay and neuter surgeries, right on site. We placed 570 cats and kittens in adoptive homes in 2022. As of mid-2023, we are on track to double that record.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Oct 01 - Sep 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
