Movie Info

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.

Cat people tend to be unfairly maligned, but in this documentary, they're heroes.

While the production package is merely workman-like, the commitment, honesty and heart of the main interviewees makes the material compelling.

[A] film which should prove catnip to feline lovers.

While it movingly portrays the unique individuals committed to helping these cats, it doesn't quite tackle the full complexity of this subject. Still, no animal lover should be surprised to find themselves holding back tears while watching it.

A tiny, delicate, inspiring metaphor for the reshaping of attitudes we will need to make on a planetary scale, and for the effort we'll need to expend to clean up the enormous messes we have made.

October 17, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

I think that any animal lover will be inspired by this poignant film and the human faces that it puts on this incredibly important issue.
