About Us

Trash Cat Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foster-based cat rescue located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Many of our cats and kittens start from very unglamorous beginnings, such as roaming the streets, or living in unsafe conditions. Our name originated from a foster who was a very literal “trashcat” – he was found inside of a dumpster. Trash Cat's mission is to reduce the suffering of these often sick, scared, and/or undersocialized cats. If a cat or kitten is brought into our rescue, we provide the vetting they need and a safe space for them to leave their trashy beginnings behind... to become happy, healthy, and adoptable cats!
Trap Neuter Return
Trap Neuter Return (TNR) is the process of spaying or neutering, eartipping, and vaccinating a cat then returning it to its outdoor colony. This process is used to help control populations of feral, semi-social, or even friendly outdoor cats. To learn more about TNR, please click here.
Fostering a cat or kitten is one of the BIGGEST ways to help save a life! There are many different varieties of cats and kittens at Trash Cat Rescue who are in need of loving foster homes. To learn more about fostering and how you can help, please click here!
