These cats need a home

These signs arrived yesterday on Ninth Street between Avenue A and First Avenue ... where Ollie's Place needs to find homes for 12 cats ASAP.

According to the signs, the nonprofit that rescues cats and puts them up for adoption has lost its lease. We don't know any more than what's posted on the signs. 

You can stop by the shop at 430 E. Ninth St. or email for more details. 

Ollie's arrived here in 2011

Thanks to Kait for the photo... and to William Klayer for also sharing the news.

Perhaps Meow Parlour can help?
I’ll send them a message

This breaks my heart. I hope they are placed in loving homes.

Just awful. I got my beloved cat there and loved the setup. The owner was a bit difficult in the home visit/approval process, but that’s another story.

First Good Beer and now Ollie’s? What’s going on on this block?

Same old story of commercial landlords pillaging neighborhoods for their own gain?

Another option is Brooklyn Cat Cafe- they are an incredible non profit that truly loves cats. I’m so sad about Ollies. They were careful in screening prospective adoptive families and had a lot of heart in their mission. I’d take one if I didn’t already have an adopted kitty.

I really wanted to adopt a cat from here. I checked in a few times to meet the cats. I went with another organization. I'm surprised to see some of the cats are still there after such a long time. I hope they all find good homes!!!
