A day in the life of Ollie’s Place

Ollie’s Place, on E 14th Street between 1st Avenue and Avenue A, provides a home for about a dozen stray cats at a time. An offshoot of the dog shelter Mighty Mutts, the East Village location has been operating for the past several years after a former Midtown storefront caught fire. Ollie’s Place is a small non-profit entirely run by volunteers.

Kat Herskovits, who has been working at Ollie’s Place for nearly three years, talks about the shelter’s daily routine.
