The Cats at Longstreet
The Cats at Longstreet (TCAL) is a Northern Virginia-based cat rescue that helps cats and kittens from all walks of life, but specializes in helping those cats for whom tragedy has struck in the harshest of ways. We take in those who are so sick or who have been severely injured and are not expected to survive - because The Cats at Longstreet is often their last hope, their last chance, the last effort to save their lives.
The rescue provides safe havens for pregnant cats to have their kittens, watching them grow from their first moments to their adoption day; and also to orphaned kittens, including neonate care around the clock to give them the best chance of survival.
We aren't just here for kittens, we help plenty of older cats as well. When an owner passes away and their beloved feline friend is left homeless, TCAL offers a soft place to land.
We also assist with trap-neuter-return (TNR), because we understand that not every cat desires to be a lap cat, and may well prefer to live in a barn. We believe those cats also deserve a chance to live fully, and will do anything we can to help them.
Our team answers the call when local shelters and kennels are past capacity and are in danger of euthanizing otherwise healthy cats. With the help of our network of fosters and volunteers, The Cats at Longstreet has socialized and prepared all of those saved cats and kittens and readied them for adoption.
We do what we do because their lives matter.
