We've done a lot of cat rescues, but this is the first time we've required a pool net! We were contacted about 2 kittens who were born in a window well about 4 feet deep. The mom could get in and out but the kittens couldn't. It took some wrangling, but we were able to scoop the kittens up and they're now safely in foster.
Join us on May 12th! Meow Mixer is a fun event to celebrate and support the rescue work of Infinite Hope. This year we'll be gathering at Industry City Distillery, a location with a host cat, great views of the NYC Harbor, and delicious cocktails!

Boston has joined with other cities from around the nation to ban the sale of commercially bred animals in pet stores. Pet stores can continue to work with rescue groups and shelters to help people meet animals to adopt.
The Boston Globe covers the story here.
We love Rock & Rawhide! If you don't know them, they are a nonprofit organization that provides food, toys, and supplies for animals in shelters and in the care of rescue groups. These are just some of the wonderful donations that they have given to Infinite Hope recently for our foster kitties. Thank you, Rock & Rawhide!
Infinite Hope's assistance in bringing home Arthur "the Subway Cat" earned a reward from cat lover John Catsimatidis.Read more
Doug got some good news from the specialists at Animal Medical Center (AMC) yesterday. The cardiologist said that Doug has a very rare condition that is causing his heart murmur, but he believes that it is treatable with surgery. Doug needs to wait until he's a bit bigger for that procedure, but thanks to AMC To The Rescue funds, most of his vet care will be covered!
