Featured Pet for Adoption: Sarah

Sarah is looking for her forever home, hopefully in time for the holidays!

Dear Santa,

I have been a very good girl this year. I have even been working on perfecting my loaf. My foster mommy is teaching me the ways of the Christmas tree (fun to lay under!) in hopes I will be well prepared for my forever family before Christmas 💕 I have attached my wishlist below:

  1. A forever family that loves and adores me
  2. Another kitty in my forever family (I will make them fall in love with me; I simply adore all kitties)
  3. Lots of head massages and pets
  4. Toys
  5. All the laps to nap on and the fuzzy blankets to snuggle in



If interested in bringing Sarah home, please fill out our adoption application form here.


Every little bit helps! Your donations go directly to things like helping to fund life-saving surgeries and taking care of the cats in our sanctuary, and funding our TNR efforts.

Our Store is Open!

We're thrilled to announce the opening of our online store! Support PURR with a fashionable t-shirt, or become the talk of the water cooler with a fancy mug. There are lots of styles and colors available for you to choose from.

The profits of the sales go directly to helping us in our efforts to help the kitties of Philly who need it the most.
