Moby Kit Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit feline rescue that serves the Southcoast of Massachusetts. It was founded in December 2021, however, our founders have over a decade of experience in the rescue community and specialize in the care and socialization of young kittens.
To give kindness, care, and compassion to animals in need while publicly promoting their welfare and responsible pet ownership
As a foster-based rescue, we rely on our network of 17 fosters to house, feed, socialize and care for our cats and kittens until they are medically-cleared for adoption. We are located across the southcoast area in cities like Fall River, New Bedford, Fairhaven, Dartmouth and Middleboro. We are a small but mighty team!
We are an all-volunteer rescue, so no one is paid a salary. We are a mix of women in healthcare, biotechnology, veterinary sciences, sales, social work, and creative arts, who are all united by our passion for cats and animal welfare.
Hate and discrimination has no place at Moby Kit Rescue! We are a
purrr-oud group that embraces people of all backgrounds, identities, ethnicities, and orientations. If you are a kind, compassionate, and caring individual that loves cats and believes in our cause, then you have a home at Moby Kit Rescue.
Our Areas of Focus
1 - Spay & Neuter
Work with the public to trap and sterilize as many cats and kittens as possible. Feral cats are released back to their homes and friendly cats (or those with the potential for adoption) are placed in a foster home for socialization
2 - Socialization
Socialize cats and kittens with very limited human interaction or victims of cruelty and abuse. We are one of very few rescues in southcoast MA that accepts semi-feral cats and kittens with the goal of adoption.
3 - Adoption
Advertise cats and kittens as adoptable, and review all prospective applicants. Adoptable cats receive the following medical care before adoption: spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccine, 2-3 distemper vaccines (age dependent), deworming medication, deflea treatment and microchip.
4 - Education
Educate the public on responsible pet ownership through fundraisers, and social outreach. Make spay/neuter surgery and medical care more affordable to the community through the initiatives like Project Snip. Encourage the community to partake in TNR initiatives through programs like Sponsor-a-Feral.
Our Adoption Process
Rehabilitate kittens and cats that have sustained injury or illness while living outdoors. Examples vary from common upper respiratory illnesses, to recovery from an eye removal or amputation. Additionally, bottle or tube-feeding is often required for our youngest neonates who have been orphaned or abandoned.
Socialize cats and kittens with very limited human interaction and/or victims of cruelty and abuse. This is important to improve the cats' chances at adoption and ensure that they live a confident, happy life, rather than one of fear.
Advertise cats and kittens as adoptable, and review prospective applicants. Applications are submitted online and include an assortment of open questions used to assess an applicant's candidacy. All applications undergo vet references (when applicable), housing checks and occasionally personal references. Additional steps are sometimes taken to verify certain aspects of an application.
