With over 500,000 streets 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.

Winner: Zelda Penzel "Giving Voice to the Voiceless" Award, Hamptons Int'l Film Festival; Official selection: DOC NYC

"Quietly captivating... a portrait of human tenderness, city planning and even government inaction all while making the viewer laugh, cry and grip their seats." - CriterionCast
