Our Featured Pet is Kirby

KIrby is a beatiful white cat with gray patches. He is about two years old and is a wonderful boy! He is extremely friendly and loves to be pet. He always uses his scratching post, so he is not destructive. Kirby has been with us for a year and a half now and we just can't figure out why. He is an incredible pet.

He is up-to-date on vaccinations, dewormed, litter-trained,neutered, and FIV/FeLV negative. He must be an indoor-only cat and he may not be declawed. If you would like to give this wonderful cat a new home, please download an adoption application.

Please Help Us!

We have many beautiful kittens and loving adults who need homes! Many people write to us begging for us to take in their cats or kittens that they have found but we cannot save any more animals until some of ours are adopted. If you are looking for a new family member, please consider adopting a cat from OCCR.

Our Pets

OCCR receives the majority of our cats from our local community. Most of these beautiful babies come into the rescue because they were next to be put-down at the shelter. When you adopt a cat from our rescue, you are helping us to save lives.


We are excited to announce the formation of Ocean County Cat Rescue!

Foster Homes Needed!

OCCR is always looking for homes that can take in a cat or two on a temporary basis. Foster homes are an essential component of our rescue and allow us to save more animals who are waiting on death row. We provide all supplies including food, litter, and toys. We pay for all medical care. All foster homes need to provide is love for these special kitties. If you can help our rescue efforts and foster a cat, please email occrescue@gmail.com.

Who We Are

In 2003, Ocean County's animal shelters impounded 8,883 cats. 3,624 of those cats were killed because no one ever came to adopt them. We founded Ocean County Cat Rescue in response to those appalling statistics. We pull urgent cats from local shelters and foster them until they find new homes. We also take in strays and, if space permits, pre-approved owner surrenders.

Aside from intakes, OCCR also promotes the spaying and neutering of all animals. One female cat and her offspring can produce 80,000 cats in seven years. Cats can start having kittens when they are four months old and can have up to 3 litters a year.

Adopting a friend

If you are interested in adopting one of our cats, the first step in the process is to download an adoption application, fill it out, and email it to occrescue@gmail.com. We call vet references and we complete a home visit prior to approving any application. If you would like to help our cats but cannot adopt one at this time, you can sponsor one. Sponsorship donations are used to lower the adoption fee of the cat of your choice which will help them to find new homes more quickly.

Help Us Help Them

We are working hard to save local cats and we need your help! Even if you can't adopt one of our beautiful cats at this time, you can still help us to continue our work. Ocean County Cat Rescue is funded entirely by the founder, adoption fees, and your generous donations. Please consider making a donation to support our efforts. We appreciate every bit of help that we receive!

You can send a monetary donation (to help pay the vet bill) via the PayPal button at the top of this page or you can send/drop off supplies to the founder's home. We are always in need of cat food, clumping litter, Frontline, baking soda, collars, bowls, cat beds, cat toys, Clorox, paper towels, and gift cards to PetCo, PetSmart, Target and Walmart. If you would like to send or drop off supplies, please email us for further information. Thank you for supporting Ocean County Cat Rescue!
