THE CAT RESCUERS
First show: August 05
A film about forgotten animals and the humans who’ll stop at nothing to save them.
With over 500,000 street cats struggling to survive in NYC, and the city unwilling to address the problem, spirited volunteers like Sassee, Claire, Stu and Tara have come to their aid. Their beat is Brooklyn, where the problem has exploded. Combing the borough’s alleys, backyards and housing projects, they trap the cats, get them fixed and returned to their colonies, or adopted. THE CAT RESCUERS shows the skill, resilience and humor they bring to this challenging but rewarding work, and how their mission to reduce animal suffering, often at great sacrifice to themselves, has changed their lives.
THE CAT RESCUERS had its world premiere at the 2018 Hamptons International Film Festival, winning the Zelda Penzel “Giving Voice to the Voiceless” Award.
