Happy Cat Rescue



Happy Cat Rescue specializes in the rescue and placement of abused, unwanted and abandoned companion animals. We never discriminate on the basis of health, age or breed. By involving and educating the community, Happy Cat Rescue works to raise the public’s awareness of the plight of homeless animals as well as realizing the benefits of adopting an animal in need. Our animals are examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and receive any and all medical treatment before they are placed in carefully screened homes.

Who We Are

In 2009, Marcia Scott’s minister discovered abandoned kittens living behind his house in Guilderland Center. As so many others have done in the past, the minister turned to Marcia for advice and help with the kittens. Unfortunately, this story is not unique because, in the surrounding localities near Albany, New York alone, there are hundreds of abandoned and/or abused animals.

This was the beginning of Happy Cat Rescue

As more people contacted Marcia for help, it was obvious there were a growing number of felines in need of assistance and care. In addition to the needs of the kittens and cats, often their owners needed a helping hand, guidance, and education on the welfare of their companion pets.

Although Marcia and her husband, Chuck had been rescuing and re-homing needy kitties for more than 20 years, the continual growth of those in need helped them realize there was more responsibility and work than they could handle alone. Being involved with other rescue groups, networking, and dealing with multiple cat hoarding situations secured their vision that would allow them to fill a need in their community.

Therefore, in September 2011, Happy Cat Rescue Inc. was formed for the purpose of helping out stray cats, abused cats, abandoned cats and cats who could no longer receive proper care from their owners. In 2011 alone Happy Cat Rescue Inc. was able to find loving, forever homes for more than 50 rescued cats and assisted in the adoption process for many others. Happy Cat Rescue Inc. is directly involved in rescuing and placing abused, unwanted, and abandoned cats and kittens.

Happy Cat Rescue Inc. requires that all kittens and cats are tested for FIV/FELV before they are allowed to join the rest of the group. They are examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and receive any and all necessary medical treatment before they are available for adoption to carefully screened adopters.

Happy Cat Rescue Inc. hopes to help raise the public’s awareness on the plight of homeless felines and educate people on the benefits of adopting an animal from a rescue group or a shelter.

Happy Cat Rescue Inc. refers pet owners to locations where they can receive low-cost spay or neuter services.

As Happy Cat Rescue Inc. expands, the goal is to have a formal shelter environment to better serve the local feline community.

In December 2012, Happy Cat Rescue Inc. received its 501(c)(3) status.

Adoption Fees:
Adoption fees for cats over a year are $65.00.
Adoption fees for kittens under one year are $100.00
