Befriended Felines - Our Mission
Our mission is focused on rescue services and placement opportunties for those cats which stand NO chance of getting out without rescue asssitance.
Our aim is to help provide the gift of -- and qualilty life -- for those felines at highest risk in the county pound system: those labeled fearful or feral, including those mislabeled or simply misunderstood.
Befriended Felines is a member of Rescue Alliance of hairless and Other Breeds, Inc.,

About Our Rescue Group:We are an all-volunteer, foster-based group which serves to assist felines at greatest risk at our county animal shelter. We only rescue cats which are assurred to be euthanized for reasons of space, temperament and/or medical reasons without rescue assistance. Each of our volunteers has devoted a number of years, prior, volunteering at our county animal shelter (a.k.a. "the pound") and has firsthand experience in the tragic reality of the effects of homelessness on companion and feral animals. Many of the cats labeled "feral" by shelter standards prove to be merely tame, frightened animals simply needing a sense of safety, security and love. Our obligation is to those impounded which have no way out. And though we can not rescue all, we rescue as many as we responsibly can.
Come Meet our Pets:Please email or call to meet any of our pets.
Come by here and check often for any upcoming events to meet us or help out or even meet some of the pets.
