Welcome to Hyde Park Cats!





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 600 adoptions since our founding in 2008.

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


Looking to get involved in a great organization dedicated to helping cats in need?

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.

If you are interested in volunteering, we’d love to hear from you. There are many ways to get involved, and we always need new volunteers to help out at events, transport cats, post flyers, and with many other essentials of cat rescue. To find out more about how to volunteer, email us at hydeparkcats@gmail.com and follow us on facebook.

Thank you for your support!
