Welcome to Hyde Park Cats!

Hummus and Pita

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. All of our adoptable kitties live in loving foster homes. We received our 501©(3) status this year and have had over 500 adoptions since our founding in 2008, and more than 100 adoptions already in 2014!

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/ 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, the golden paw print). 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 on this page. We also receive donations via Parker’s, a natural dog and cat market in Hyde Park where they have a donation bin. This fabulous pet supply store offers discounts on items purchased for us.

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 aspects of cat rescue. To find out more about how to volunteer, email us at hydeparkcats@gmail.com and follow us on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HydeParkCats

Thank you for your support!
