About Charm City Animal Rescue

After volunteering and fostering for several Maryland Rescues and shelters, city resident Michelle Ingrodi decided to start her own rescue, focusing on the values and lessons learned from her friends.

In 2007, she found a tiny kitten laying in the gutter and realized she had no idea how to help the poor thing. It was then that she decided to find a way to care for those animals on the streets of Baltimore, showing them that the city can also have a sweet side. Her focus is mainly on getting kittens out of feral colonies, off the streets, or out of bad situations. She works to socialize them, and adopts them out when they're ready, no matter how long it takes.

Almost four years later, she has successfully rescued and adopted out over 350 animals, grown her rescue to one of the larger organizations in the city, and obtained her 501c3 status! In January of 2011, she expanded Charm City Animal Rescue to her hometown of Cumberland, MD, helping create Queen City Animal Rescue. Michelle is highly involved in assisting the Allegany County Animal Shelter become No-Kill, and many of the cats/kittens in the rescue program come from this shelter.

The Boxiecat Shelter Partner Program is a co-sponsorship program that raises awareness for shelter initiatives and goals. The program allows the Boxiecat subscription cat litter service to donate a portion of revenue toward the well-being of cats, and, at the same time, lend a hand in raising local and national awareness of shelter initiatives and goals such as adoptions and donations.
