Orange Street Cats (OSC) started by accident. In July and August 2010, a group of concerned people got together by chance to help with a hoarding situation on Orange Street in Albany, New York. Being told they would find “a handful of cats,” they entered a condemned building, slated to be demolished, to find what turned out to be 88 cats – sick, pregnant, and newly-born. Much to their surprise even today, through a lot of hard work and awesome friends, those 88 cats found homes. They then decided that maybe, if we stuck together as a group, they could do some more good for cats in the greater Capital Region of New York. They were incorporated in 2011 and were designated a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization effective November 30, 2011.

Their Mission Statement:
Their goal is to help cats without a human advocate. They take senior cats who find themselves homeless after their human passes away; orphaned kittens requiring intense care; injured cats needing surgery; and cats with FIV and FeLV. In short, those cats that few other rescues will assist. They believe that they should focus on the cat in front of us. That means they often go to great lengths to give a cat a chance at happily ever after.
