Who we are
K. I. S. S. Inc. is a registered non-profit charitable organization in the state of NJ and a 501(c) (3) Federal Tax Exempt Organization. WE HAVE A VARIETY OF CATS/ KITTENS JUST WAITING TO BE SOMEONE SPECIAL'S KITTY!
K.I.S.S. is not a shelter. We have a group of foster homes that can handle a limited number of cats.
We do not accept owner surrenders. Please contact your local animal control facility.
Most of our cats come from our local animal control facility. When we have extra room, we accept cats who may be in danger of being euthanized at other facilities.
Please stop by and see us!
Thank you to everyone who found it in their hearts to be that "Someone Special" to one of our kitties. We do believe you are all special to care about our guys as much as we do.
How we started
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
And sofa cushions, soft and nice.
I pray for gourmet kitty snacks,
And someone nice to scratch my back,
For windowsills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.
I pray I'll always stay real cool
And keep the secret feline rule
To NEVER tell a human that
The world is really ruled by CATS!

K.I.S.S. evolved from a group of women who desperately wanted to make a difference in the lives of unwanted cats and kittens. Meeting each other "by chance" they following their hearts, finding forever homes for their homeless cats and kittens, many of which were turned away from shelters because they were full.
Adopting a friend
Adopting a pet is a lifelong decision! (The life of the the pet, that is, and that could be 15-20 years or longer). We pride ourselves on nurturing relationships prior to and after the adoption. A PURRFECT match is our GOAL! Another reminder that adopting a cat is a 15-20 year commitment.
An approved application can reserve your cat/kitten. Please do not forget our adults. No doubt most of them got adopted as little kittens (as ours do now), and someone had promised to love them unconditionally. Now they are homeless for whatever the reason... Please adopt one of our LOVING ADULTS.............. Many beautiful adult cats are getting passed over for kittens...just remember in 6 months your cute little kitten will start looking like an adult cat!
Because our cats live in the homes of our volunteers, we know which cats will do well in different situations. For example, some of our cats need a quiet environment, and would not do well with children; some are very active - they are all individuals. We will help you pick out the cat that would do best in your family situation.

ALL CATS/KITTENS MUST BE SPAYED/NEUTERED. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS. All cats/kittens that go to their new adoptive home are up-to-date with vaccinations, FIV/FelV tested, and dewormed. All adult cats are spayed/ neutered. Many kittens - if of acceptable age/weight - are spayed/neutered before they leave us.
