Tuxedo Junction Rescue is a no-kill rescue organization dedicated to providing tender care and permanent placement into loving homes for cats at risk for shelter euthanasia in Austin, Texas.
We primarily rescue black and white ("tuxedo") and black cats because of their historic difficulty in being placed through shelters.
However, this focus has not precluded the rescue of other cats in need.
Why do rescue groups exist?
It's an unfortunate fact that more cats (and dogs) exist than there are loving homes for. This is true because not everyone has caught on to the fact that spaying and neutering is a must. It is the animals who pay the price for their overpopulation, because many animals who have nowhere to go end up in shelters; the shelters end up killing adoptable and treatable animals to make more room for yet more animals arriving daily.
Although Austin is trying to move toward becoming a No-Kill city, this goal has not yet been reached. Rescue groups play a part in the no-kill equation by saving animals from shelters (or diverting them from shelters) and finding them permanent homes.
How can you help stop the needless killing?
First, of course, please be sure all your animals are spayed or neutered!
Adopt one of our featured cats, or foster a rescued animal if you can.
Support local rescue groups and shelters by donating, volunteering, or both!
