About Us

Georgie cools off in an overgrown lot.

Inspired by the abundance of homeless cats wandering the streets of Brooklyn, The American Street Cat, Inc. (aka TASC) was formed in January 2011 and is a New York State not-for-profit corporation. In March 2011, TASC was granted tax-exempt status and is a full fledged public charity.

Entirely volunteer based, TASC is a grass roots organization that believes in transparency about both who we are and what we do. There are no paid officers or volunteers. We’re just blue collar folks working for blue collar cats. All money raised via donations, adoption fees, and events goes directly toward the cats’ expenses so that those living on the streets and in back yards may lead healthier and kitten-free lives.
