My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Romeo came to Focus on Ferals after being pull from Genesee County Animal Control. Unfortunately Romeo is FeLV+, but he is currently healthy. His approximate date of birth is April of 2022, so he is a young kitty with lots of energy. Romeo LOVES to talk and tell you all about his day. Even if you stop paying attention he will continue the chit chatter. Romeo is so sweet and wants all the love and pets and snuggles he can get! Romeo would love more space to play and run, so come meet him!

'Our adoption facility houses so many kitties. The rest are in foster homes. If you want to meet a specific kitty, please inquire with us before attending an adoption event, so we can make every effort to have the requested kitties available!

For every kitten that is adopted another kitten will have a chance at a healthy happy life. Kitten season has been especially busy this year and we have been at capacity for some time now. Sadly this means people who want to help the cats and kittens in their area are being turned away because of limited resources.

More about this rescue

Our mission is to improve the lives of feral cats through education and action, following the humane methods of Trap-Neuter-Return, and thus treating every feral cat with the compassion and respect they deserve.

The Humane Answer: Trap-Neuter-Return
If you've ever seen cats in an alleyway eating out of dumpsters, or blending into the wild habitat of a wooded area, and wondered about their condition and how you could help them, read on...

Some of them, having been lost or abandoned, have found their way to a colony where they can survive amongst other felines. But the majority live out their lives as feral, or "wild", cats. Being either born in the wild and never having had human contact, or reverting to a wild state after having been abandoned; the great majority of feral cats cannot be tamed. Generally, attempts at taming or adoption of ferals prove to be fruitless. Our efforts can be realized one-hundred-fold if we do the greatest good for the greatest number of ferals by stopping the cycle of reproduction.

Communities can help these forgotten cats by providing them with food, water, shelter, and spaying/neutering services through the "Trap-Neuter-Return" full management program.

Briefly, TNR consists of the humane trapping, sterilization, and return of feral cats to their familiar habitat to be cared for daily by dedicated volunteers. Kittens under eight weeks and/or tame cats are placed into adoption programs.
