About Our Rescue Group...
Since 2007, Feral Friends of Millsboro, Inc. has been helping to control the feral cat population in Sussex County, Delaware. We do this in the humane way of Trap/Neuter/Return. Doing this helps to control diseases that might spread throughout the colony. We also feed and care for many colonies on a daily basis. When possible, kittens are rescued and fostered until they are healthy and can be adopted to a loving home.
Feral cats roam free in communities and generally have had no socialization. Also referred to as strays or alley cats. Unsterilized feral cats tend to band together in colonies.
A feral kitten less than four or five weeks old can be humanely trapped and tamed to be adopted into a forever home.
Feral Friends of Millsboro, Inc. consists of a group of hard working, compassionate and dedicated volunteers that are all working towards a common goal. That goal is to do everything we possibly can to help as many helpless, homeless cats and kittens as we can. We all have a mutual love for animals and a shared desire for their well being and safety.
We do not receive compensation for what we do. We are a 501c3 organization. Instead, we are rewarded with the greatest gift of all, knowing that we have done our best to provide them with a fighting chance for a future. As well as finding wonderful companions for some very special families.
We feed and care for several colonies, foster cats and kittens, host fund raisers and trap/neuter/return. When we have charity events, someone from the group is there to answer any questions and help when needed. Also, we are giving food to a family who cares for a very large colony of cats and without the work of that family, many cats and kittens would not survive.
Unconditional love is what this is all about. These kittens and cats depend on us for food, water and medical care. Without our work they would not eat properly, the kittens and cats could end up contracting incurable diseases, possibly become blind.... Only to wander away and die a horrible, lonely death. Even though the cats in these colonies are feral, they come running when they hear our call to come for fresh food and water.
To wake up in the morning and hear the cries of little kittens that are so dependent on our care is just the greatest feeling. To watch them grow and when the day comes that they find their forever home, we lovingly give them up, even though it hurts us deeply. We can not keep them all, but wish that we could.
Our Adoption Process...
A Pre-Adoption Questionnaire is the first step to adopting a cat or kitten from us.
Then should we feel that the cat may be a match for you and/or your family, a meeting would be set up for the prospective new family to meet with the cat or kitten.
If the family is still interested after that meeting, an adoption form is to be filled out and the cat or kitten would be offered to his or her new forever home!
$25.00 Donation Is Requested For The Adoption Of All Cats & Kittens.
