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!

Chelly 2 Chelly

Lovely silver tabby Chelly is on our waiting list for a foster home.

She is, however, fully vetted and adoption-ready.

She is estimated to be two years old.

She is on the thin side so needs a gradual weight gain.

Let us know if you’d like to meet Chelly at hydeparkcatsadoptions@gmail.com !

Zelda 4 Zelda 5

Zelda was found outside a few nights ago, running confusedly from one house to another and calling for help, but too scared to approach anyone.

Some former HPC adopters alerted us and we trapped her and brought her safely inside.

Unless an owner emerges, Zelda will be joining our adoption program. She is about 10 weeks old with a lovely calico coat and the cutest face.

Let us know now if you think Zelda might be your newest family member at hydeparkcatsadoptions@gmail.com !
