About Us

The New Mexico Chapter of FELINES & FRIENDS was formed in 2001 and registered with the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission in March 2002. In 2013 we became FELINES & FRIENDS NEW MEXICO. To date, we have found homes for over 3,000 cats and dogs.

FELINES & FRIENDS is an all-volunteer rescue and placement organization providing second chances for shelter cats in need of more time or vet care, kittens from Trap/Neuter/Return projects.    We do not have a shelter and rely solely on foster homes when cats are not on display for a week at a time at our Petco Adoption Center.

Raising funds to provide the best care for orphaned cats is an on-going concern.   We do not receive any government funding.   One hundred percent of our revenue is generated from adoption fees, grants, and donations.   We are always seeking private and corporate benefactors.

FELINES & FRIENDS is a non-profit corporation registered  and in good standing with the NM Secretary of State, NM Attorney General’s office, and the IRS.
