Welcome to Hyde Park Cats!

Looking to get involved in a great organization dedicated to cat rescue? We are a confederation of volunteers working in and around Chicago’s Hyde Park to help cats and kittens in need. We received our 501©(3) status in 2014 and have had over 700 adoptions since our founding in 2008.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook for all the latest and greatest!


If you are interested in ADOPTING, check out our up-to-date photo page of our available cats and kittens here: http://hydeparkcats.org/adopt/ All of our adoptable kitties live in loving foster homes. For more information, including our adoption application, please contact us at hydeparkcatsadoptions@gmail.com For more on our adoption policies, see our information page here: http://hydeparkcats.org/available/

If you are interested in FOSTERING, read more about the benefits of fostering on our page here: http://hydeparkcats.org/fostering-cats/ and contact us at hydeparkcatsadoptions@gmail.com to apply. We always need fosterers — more fosterers means helping more cats — and every person who fosters for us makes a difference in saving a life, or several!

If you are interested in DONATING, THANK YOU for helping us do what we do! We gladly accept donations through our pay pal account (link in upper right hand of this page). We also welcome donations of food, litter, toys, scratching posts, etc. Open bags ok! If you have something to donate, contact hydeparkcats@gmail.com or “contact us” through this page and we will coordinate with you.

If you are interested in VOLUNTEERING, we’d love to hear from you. We are a 100% volunteer organization, and we always need new volunteers to help out at events, transport cats to the vet, post flyers, and many other essentials tasks of cat rescue. We organize adoption events, bake sales, calendar sales, cat shelter visits, and much more. To find out more about how to volunteer, email us at hydeparkcats@gmail.com and keep an eye out for upcoming events on facebook.

Thank you for your support!

Bean meets Jack Black

jack blackBean5

Adoptables kitten Bean (tuxedo) and young adult Jack Black are now foster mates, and their fosterer is gradually introducing them to one another.

Jack Black needs a playmate and kitten Bean needs a mentor, so we are hoping that the match works out!

We’ll keep you posted. Read more about them here:

Jack Black, another fabulous new admit!

Welcome to life inside, kitten Bean

In the meantime, let us know if you think these might be the kitties for you at hydeparkcatsadoptions.com !

6-month-old cuddly kitten Tater

Tater tater5

Tater is back on the market for a forever home. This little guy is very sweet and playful and we really can’t say enough good things about him. He’s comfortable around new people, kids, and other cats. He loves chasing toys and climbing, and he’s very good at both. He’s also a great cuddler as he will sleep beside you on the bed or couch. He’s a fairly quiet kitty, and will meow gently only when it’s feeding time. Overall, Tater is a fun and lovable addition to any home.

To meet him, write to us at hydeparkcatsadoptions@gmail.com !
