Best Friends - Save Them All(R)


Let’s find Amelia a home

Nearly a year ago, we shared the story of Amelia, a courageous young cat who had been living in a parking garage in Harlem for much of her life. When a local Best Friends Network Partner took her in and found her a foster family, Amelia was finally safe, warm and adored.

Today, Amelia is still hoping for her a home of her own — and a year is a very long wait for a cat who radiates only gratitude and love. So, we’re hoping you’ll help spread the word about her on social media, or even consider bringing this happy, friendly feline home to your place. 

You might recall that along with her unfailing brightness and happy-go-lucky outlook, Amelia has special needs: a neurological disorder has left her partially incontinent. But the great news is, these days Amelia is only rarely leaking outside the litter box and in small amounts. Still, she’ll always need medication, a high-fiber diet, and most importantly, a compassionate, patient person to express her bladder twice a day.

Amelia adores the fellow felines in her foster home and her caregivers believe she would thrive in a family with at least one other friendly cat. She’s been exceptionally loving and affectionate with humans too — a beautiful girl from the inside out.

If you think you might be Amelia’s special someone, please call Carina at646.456.4797 or email You can also help in a huge way by spreading the word about her on social media.

Thank you so much for caring about pets like Amelia. Your kindness means everything to pets just waiting for that perfect match.
