Other Pets at Shelter...
Happy, embraceable and uniquely beautiful, meet Miss Huggy. She is quick to jump in your lap and stay awhile for some purring and petting. Then when its time to rev up for some monkey business you can send her off on a wild chase of a dangling string or after a tossed mouse. Then she is back for some more lovins and returns your affection with gentle head butts. She is no sloppy kisser—thats the dogs job. She much prefers to be your main squeeze. Come and get your wuv from our Huggy-wuggy! Huggie was born in 2009.
If you are interested in learning more about Huggie, or know someone who might be interested, please contact Toni McNaughton at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lisa Ward at email@example.com.
We are always in need of foster homes. If you are not able to adopt, but are interested in fostering or know someone who might be, we would love to hear from you! Please contact Toni McNaughton at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lisa Ward at email@example.com to learn more.
Rescue Group Info...
Feline Friends is a foster-based, no kill, cat rescue organization serving Chicago. We do not have a physical site – we are completely foster-based. To meet any of our cats in the Feline Friends program, we arrange meetings between foster homes and potential adopters. Feline Friends is staffed 100% by volunteers, and is funded entirely by private donations. Feline Friends is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax deductible.
Our mission statement is: “to help alleviate the suffering of homeless pets in Chicago by rescuing, spaying/neutering, and responsibly placing as many animals as possible in permanent homes.
Feline Friends is a 100% foster-based program. The more foster homes we have, the more cats we can rescue. We are continually in need of foster homes, and would love to hear from you if you could provide a foster home. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tax deductible donations can be made via: (1.) www.justgive.org (go through "give now", search for Feline Friends via our EIN 27-1370757, and continue as directed), and (2.) Check (make checks out to "Feline Friends" and send to Feline Friends, c/o Kodros, 345 W. Fullerton Parkway #2003, Chicago, IL 60614.)
All cats in Feline Friends live in foster homes. As part of the adoption process, we have the potential adopter meet the available kitties by putting them directly in touch with the appropriate foster parent(s) to coordinate a day and time for a visit.
The process for adopting a cat involves a couple of steps.
Step 1 Gather information
We gather information about the potential adopter's situation, what they are looking for, their current household and pets, etc.
Step 2 Cat “Interviews”
Next, we have the potential adopter meet the available kitties, by putting them directly in touch with the appropriate foster parent(s) to coordinate a day and time for a visit.
Step 3 Adoption application
Once the potential adopter has met the kitties, if they decide they want to do an adoption, they fill out our adoption application, which we then process. It takes a couple of days to process the application. Once the application has been processed and approved, the kitties are ready to go home.
Step 4 After the adoption
Once a person has adopted a cat, Feline Friends continues to stay in touch with the adopter to ensure a smooth transition for both the person and the cat. We remain available for questions and advice.
All of our kitties have been combo-tested for FIV/Feline Leukemia, spayed or neutered, vaccinated for distemper, microchipped, and dewormed. The adoption fee helps to offset the costs we incur to do all of these things.
We serve Chicago.
