Non Lethal Options for Animals (NOA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit, no-kill cat rescue dedicated to saving and improving the lives of stray cats in Philadelphia and it's surrounding suburbs.  NOA rescues cats and kittens from area shelters, gives them proper veterinary care and a loving foster home, and adopts them out to happy new families.  The organization is a no-kill rescue, meaning that we will never euthanize an adoptable or treatable animal. We do not euthanize animals to make space in our foster homes, and we do not euthanize animals for medical problems unless deemed humane and necessary by a veterinarian. We provide high-quality veterinary care to our foster cats and kittens and will never turn away a homeless animal due to illness or injury.  Our organization is run entirely by volunteers. We have no paid staff and rely on the generosity of our donors to continue our work.
