PUFF Cat Rescue, Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit founded in June 2019 by a group of cat-lovers wanting to change the way we see and live with community cats. We believe that community cats deserve the same love and care as house cats, and our philosophy revolves around what's best for the cats.
Headquartered in Massachusetts and networking with cat rescuers across the US, our goal is to reduce community cat overpopulation through community-level programs as well as connect rescues and shelters on the national level to spread the resource wealth.
PUFF is a 100% donor-funded rescue, and a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Our EIN is 84-3691553.

Our priority is trap-neuter-return, or TNR. TNR is the only humane practice proven to reduce community cat populations in the long-term. TNR allows community cats, including feral cats, to live out their lives without contributing to the population. TNR prevents the suffering of thousands of kittens every year.
You can read more about TNR and why it's so critical at the ASPCA.
Kitten and cat fostering
Our foster home program runs side by side with our TNR program.
PUFF is a foster-based rescue, focused on kittens, sick and special-needs cats, and senior cats. Cats in foster are able to become healthy, confident, friendly pets in the comfort of a loving home, rather than a stressful shelter environment.

Working together to change the world for cats
Community cats need help all across the country, but resources aren't evenly distributed. Some states have an abundance of resources, while others are a rescue desert.
PUFF is building a network of cat rescues and animal shelters across the country needing bridges to one another. We can save more lives together, in union.
PUFF is connected with several rescues and shelters across the USA, allowing us to share the resource wealth with rescuers in under-served areas.
PUFF Cat Rescue, Inc. is committed to helping community cats, by promoting humane education and care to improve cats' lives and engage communities. PUFF works to manage feline overpopulation by reducing the number of stray and feral cats living outdoors through a proven and effective method called Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). PUFF also strives to reduce the number of cats facing euthanasia in shelters by providing a foster home for the most vulnerable felines, including orphaned kittens, sick and disabled cats, and senior cats.
