GREAT NEWS! The Kitty Adoption Team (KAT) volunteers currently have over 20 beautiful kittens, and a few young adult cats. They are all waiting for you to provide a "forever-loving" home for them. Call Diane at (610) 272-4970 to schedule an appointment.
Who We Are
Kitty Adoption Team, Inc. is a non-profit, [501 (c)(3)], all-volunteer, charitable rescue organization. The KAT team is dedicated to providing loving care to every foster kitten or cat in the KAT network. All donated funds are used for the shelter, food and veterinary care of the foster animals entrusted to our care.
KAT specializes in the rescue of young kittens. These kittens are provided foster homes throughout our team's network until quality, loving homes can be found. Many of the orphaned kitties may require bottle-feeding and infant
care in our nurseries.
KAT will also provide reduced-cost certificates for spaying and neutering cats to those in financial need. This assistance is provided through the kind and generous support of many area veterinarians.
The KAT volunteers will provide advice and care information to pet owners. The team also gives information and counseling on trapping feral (non-domesticated) kittens and cats, spay/neuter, and release of the feral cats back to their habitat. We also educate on providing shelters, feeding and care for these feral animals.
How You Can Help
Financial donations are urgently needed, and are greatly appreciated. One hundred percent of all donated funds are used for direct care of our kittens and cats. The Redner tapes(Save-A-Tape card must be used) help us with the expenses incurred in fostering our kittens and cats. Point labels from pet food products and kitten KMR Formula UPCs are also helpful to us.
You can also help support our orphaned and homeless kitties via SuperFresh's Community Rewards Program by using eScrip (electronic non-profit organization fundraising). ShopRite is also a participant in this program. Please sign up using our Group Number (2440138). Register with your SuperFresh or ShopRite Club card online at www.escrip.com, sign up at the customer service counter, or call 610-272-4970. A percentage of your purchase amount will be donated to KAT. Other eScrip merchant partners include stores such as Office Max, Pep Boys, Payless Shoe Source, Dell, Nordstrom, Orvis, Barnes & Noble, etc.
We also receive donations through our shopping portal at www.igive.com when you shop online and specify KAT as the beneficiary. In addition, we re-cycle inkjet/laser cartridges, digital cameras, graphing calculators and cell phones, since this helps both KAT and our environment!
Other donations that are constantly needed include: kitten food, kitten formula, litter, cages, yarn (for kitty afgans), cat toys, etc. Interested persons who can volunteer their time and effort are most welcome to join our team.
We require an application process for adopting one of our kitties. Our adoption contract requires that the kitties will be kept inside (except in a barn cat placement), and that they will never be declawed. On occasion, we have available for adoption cats who have been declawed by previous owners. In addition, we require that all kitties that are adopted, or pets in the adopter's home, must be spayed or neutered at the appropriate age. Our pet adoptions are not rushed and all questions are answered so that our adopters feel comfortable with the daily care of their new pet(s).
In 2012, we found homes for 473, abandoned, orphaned, or abused kittens and young cats. Please consider joining our KAT team to help us with our efforts in 2013!

Kitty Adoption Team Prayer For The Animals
Almighty and gracious God, help us to be always mindful
of the well-being of our friends and companions, the animals.
We ask you to bless them, and for your mercy for
all animals who are unwanted, neglected, or abused;
for those who are sick, hungry and frightened;
for abandoned pets who seek the care of a forever-loving home;
and for those who must be put down in the name of compassion.
Eternal God, your Holy Scriptures teach us that mankind has
dominion over the animals. Help us fulfill our responsibility
to provide protection, kindness, and love for all your creatures,
humble and great, large and small, with whom we share the Earth.
In Your Name, we pray. Amen.
