The Cat Rescuers

The Cat Rescuers Release Date: July 5, 2019

In the documentary The Cat Rescuers, from Balcony Releasing, (the very independent studio run by Connie White, former programming director of The Brattle Theater in Harvard Square), with over 500,000 feral 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.
