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.,
A Nationwide 501(c) 3 Non-Profit Animal Rescue Organization

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.

All of our cats will be spay/neutered, all shots up to date, and very, very willing to help you on your property with gophers or any type of rodent problems.

We do get cats that are "Labeled" feral, when in truth they were FRIGHTENED. These beautiful babies are extremely loving and sensitive and make wonderful companions for your family.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
