*Our mission at Back Street Cat Rescue Inc. is to help homeless cats and kittens find loving forever homes. We do all we can to ensure a happily-ever-ending for every cat we rescue. Through rescue, aid, and abundant doses of love and affection, we strive to find loving forever homes for homeless cats in the Upper Ohio Valley.*
Who We Are and What We Do
Before founding BACK Street CAT Rescue Inc, several of us had volunteered and fostered many cats for years. At that time, we saw a need for a rescue that focused specifically on the needs of homeless cats and kittens and so we decided to establish BACK Street CAT Rescue Inc to address those needs.
BACK Street CAT Rescue (BSCR) is a non-profit (no-kill) all volunteer organization that works hard everyday to rescue and care for homeless cats and kittens in WV and Ohio. Many of our rescue cats are strays who would be put down in other shelters. For us, BSCR is a labor of love. Our cats are provided with veterenary care including medicine and surgeries, spaying/neutering, feline leukemia/aids tests and other testing as needed, vaccinations, first-aid care and very importantly a really healthy dose of human affection, kindness and love. Back Street Cat Rescue is not a 'brick & mortar' operation, nor is It a shelter per se. Back Street Cat Rescue places the cats and kittens they care for in their own homes and in the homes of caring foster families until forever homes can be found for them. As a registered 501(c) your donations to BSCR are tax deductible and deeply appreciated.

Our Featured Spring "Bunny" Tino
Valentino was found alone and nearly frozen to death in a snowy field on one of the coldest days last winter. His eyes were so badly infected they shriveled up. A good man found him and brought him home, and there he and his wife did all they could for him. Their friend referred them to Back Street Cat Rescue. We named him Tino, short for Valentino, and he is recovering in our care.
