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!

Tammy 1 Tammy 2

We pulled Tammy from the city pound when her days were numbered (see photo below.)

Her former family was losing their home and so she lost hers too.

With lots of TLC and a great diet, Tammy is feeling and looking so much better!

Tammy is three years old and said to be good around children. She did not receive any vetting from her former family but now that she is on the mend, we’ll be getting her adoption ready soon!

For more information, email us at hydeparkcatsadoptions@gmail.com

hunter2 hunter

This little number turned up at a feral colony crying and crying for help.

The colony keeper took her in and she’s now joining our adoption program.

In addition to being as cute as a button, we already know she is smart because that is what smart, lost, friendly cats do – glomb onto a colony where cats are being fed.

For an update on Hunter, as she is being called, write to us at hydeparkcatadoptions@gmail.com !
