Welcome to Hyde Park Cats!





Hyde Park Cats is an all-volunteer cat rescue working in and around Chicago’s Hyde Park. We have a robust adoption program, placing between 100 and 150 homeless cats a year into loving homes. We received our 501©(3) status in 2014 and have had over 900 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!
