Le Cat Cafe is a new adoption platform for Green Street Rescue. Green Street Rescue (GSR) is a Philadelphia non-profit (501c3). We are focused on rescuing stray and homeless cats and practicing TNRM** (Trap, Neuter, Return, Manage) for the feral cats in the city. Our mission also includes finding foster homes and eventual adoptions for the friendly rescues. GSR provides education, information, and services, which assist in trapping, rescue, fostering, and the adoption of the cats. The resident cats at Le Cat Cafe all come from GSR. Last year we assisted 348 cats in finding a better life. This year to date we have rescued 163 cats and adopted out 55.
Le Cat Cafe (LCC) is the first cat cafe in Philadelphia. Cat cafes are unique adoption platforms, allowing potential adopters to interact with the cats prior to making a decision to adopt. Traditionally, cats are held in kennels or in cages, which allow for little interaction between the two, and can inhibit adoption rates. The socialization with people further rehabilitates our cats and get them ready for a forever home. Many people who love cats and crave their company visit the cafe to get their cat fix if they are unable to own, are allergic, or otherwise. In addition, LCC serves a pivotal role in our community. The cafe holds yoga and pilates classes, and will soon offer Children Story time and a therapeutic Senior/Veteran hour.
