Rags to Riches Animal Rescue

Lake Grove, NY

Our Mission

Rags to Riches Animal Rescue is a foster based animal rescue on Long Island, NY.

One of our first priorities is to help alleviate our huge stray and feral cat problem locally so we mainly work with local trappers and shelters to get these poor kitties vetted and socialized. The more we can help locally, the more we can help in other areas.

There are so many cats on the ‘To Be Euthanized’ list in our local shelters so we work in that area as well. We do also work with some out of state high kill shelters to help with their overpopulation problem.

It’s quite an overwhelming task to do animal rescue. It seems like no matter how much you do, there are always more animals being neglected, abused, mistreated, and left behind. RTRAR will try to do our part, so if you can help out in any way, it’s greatly appreciated. Let’s work together. We are their voice.

If you're interested in any of our cats up for adoption, please fill out our adoption form at
