Our three Cat Sanctuaries in NYC are located on Roosevelt Island. The largest and most visited is located at 1 Southpoint Park and it has become a tourist attraction and it has been rated by TheCultureTrip a “Must Visit” in NYC.

The cat sanctuary houses twenty wonderful, now happy, stray cats. Although, they all have past history of neglect or animal abuse.
