About Us

Adopting A Friend


Tavi has many wonderful young cats and kittens available for adoption.


Won’t you consider adopting an adult or senior pet?  Adult, Senior and Special Care animals make wonderful pets, and they’re WYSIWYG!  What you see is what you get!  Their personalities are formed, they are typically housebroken, trained, and looking to cuddle... ready and waiting for their forever home!  Please consider giving one of our special animals a home – they will make wonderful lifelong companions and love you forever! There aren't many rewards better than the unconditional love of a treasured pet!


Who We Are

Tavi & Friends is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the NYC/LI area, established to help special animals with unique challenges, and is dedicated to improving their lives through public awareness, partnership and teamwork, TTouch therapy, rehabilitation, training, and holistic support, rescue, foster care, and adoption. Every animal deserves a forever home in a loving family. No matter how special they are, they all have lots of love to give and will make wonderful pets. Some may need more care, patience and understanding -- especially those who have known many hardships in their lives through abandonment, neglect or abuse. We also list our special care animals on our main site, as they too should have the opportunity to find permanent, loving homes. If you can open your heart and home to even one homeless animal, please complete and submit our adoption application.  Or, call us to see if you might be the right person for one of our very special ones!

Tavi & Friends is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal welfare organization, in the NYC/LI area, dedicated to helping special-needs animals through public awareness, TTouch training, holistic health care, rescue, adoption and foster care. Permanent, loving homes are found for each animal whenever possible; due to special-needs, some will not be adopted and have a home for life within our foster care network and, when available, in our Sanctuary.
Special-needs | special care designates animals who may require specialized care and/orwho may have difficulty finding a permanent adoptive home due to issues such as: inappropriate behaviors; age or wellness issues; are orphaned; or are physically or emotionally challenged. This "uniqueness" may make them at higher risk for euthanasia, homelessness, abandonment, or abuse. Our volunteers provide love, training, holistic support, socialization, and foster care as appropriate to the individual needs of each animal. Feral cats also have 'special needs;' colony caretakers provide for the daily needs of these colonies, and rescue kittens or strays who may have been abandoned; for those cats who are able to be socialized, homes can be found.
