Max's House A Special Place for Very
Dedicated to the Loving Memory of
Max, a true Braveheart
In memoriam of dearly departed
Presidents and Directors of Max's House
Max's House Animal Rescue, originally known only as
"The Cat Guys from Fordham", was established in 1963 in the Bronx, NY in
order to help animals primarily in the Fordham, Belmont, & Grand
Concourse sections of the Bronx, where there were no city supported
animal welfare organizations other than AC&C, which primarily only
euthanized stray and feral cats. The group's founder moved to Ridgewood,
New Jersey in 1985 and incorporated as Max's House Animal Rescue, Inc.
in 1999 in tribute to a dearly loved deceased cat.
inception in 1963 we have rescued and homed over 23,500 cats. Many of
those cats were rescued from municipal and county animal shelters where
they were scheduled to be killed when the statutory 7-day holding period
expired. Many of those cats were rescued literally minutes before they
were going to be killed. Many were victims of abuse, neglect, and
abandonment. Some were thrown from moving vehicles or tossed into
dumpsters like trash. We have also and spayed, neutered, and vaccinated
over 12,500 feral cats in an effort to humanely reduce the free roaming
cat population and reduce the systematic killing of feral cats.
Thousands of beautiful, loving
animals are put to death daily in shelters and thousands more suffer
horribly in laboratories, pounds and on the street. We are dedicated to
saving as many of these unfortunate souls as possible. These victims are rescued,
given medical care, spayed & neutered and
cared for by our volunteers until suitable homes are found for them.
This vital life-saving work is critical for these unfortunate animals
since their only crime is to be born unwanted or abandoned.
It is our mission to prevent
cruelty, promote spay/neuter, promote Trap Neuter & Return (TNR) to
reduce the free roaming population and to encourage awareness through
education, while also
teaching respect for all animals and the environment in which they live.
And now a
few words from the President of Max's
I'm Jade. I'm alive today because someone cared enough to get me vaccinated
when I was little. But my best friend Max wasn'tvaccinated and died when he was
only 10 weeks old of a horrible disease called panleukopenia. It destroys all the
white blood cells and makes us get very sick and die. Many of us kittens that
get this disease die, but it can be prevented by vaccinations. There are many other
terrible diseases like feline leukemia that can't be cured either, but can be
prevented by vaccinations.
Max I'm so sad about Max. He was so sweet and really
smart. He didn't have to die. A few dollars for vaccinations would
have saved his life. Every year thousands of kittens who never get a
chance at life die of these terrible diseases because small pet
adoption centers and sheltersjust don't have enough money to vaccinate all
Hears how we
all can help...
Send me a picture of your pet along with a small donation and I'll put his/her picture
here in Max's House as a sponsor. All the money we raise together will
be used to vaccinate pets in small adoption centers and shelters. We
can't save them all, but if each of us can save just one or two,
together we will have saved many who otherwise would die a
painful agonizing, and UNNECESSARY death.
Thank you with all my heart,

While you are
viewing this page, thousands of cats and dogs are being euthanized across the United
States because no one wants them and there isn't enough money or space for the shelters to
care for them. Many more are suffering and leading lives of quiet desperation on the
streets. The new millenium is a time for hope, for change, and for new beginnings.
Spay/Neuter is the single most important thing you can do to make a difference. Please
have a heart.
