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!

Baby Boy

Baby Boy2 Baby Boy
Handsome tabby Baby Boy can be seen here enjoying his homemade cat tree. What a sweetie!
His fosterers report that he is doing great and has really opened up with them. Initially Baby Boy was nervous and hid, and now he moves more freely and likes to sit on the window ledge all day. He comes and cuddles with his fosterers at night but still likes his own space.
We are happy to report that he gets along splendidly with a 6-8 month old kitten his fosterers happen to be caring for. Baby Boy and the kitten are best buddies, most active at night, jumping around, climbing, etc. Baby Boy is very gentle with him, even cleaning the kitten sometimes. So we know he gets along well with other cats, which is always a plus. 
Baby Boy is around 3 years old.
To meet Baby Boy please write to us at hydeparkcatsadoptions@gmail.com
