Our Mission

FELINES & FRIENDS is dedicated to rescuing and placing pets in need of a second chance; working towards zero pet overpopulation by facilitating lowcost spay/neuter; and improving the lives of both companion animals and their owners through on-going education.

In recent years, significant strides have been made in reducing the euthanasia rate of dogs and cats all across the nation. FELINES & FRIENDS plays an important role in this effort, interfacing with local shelters to rescue “special needs” and hard to place cats. Since its formation in 2002, FELINES & FRIENDS has gained a reputation in Northern New Mexico for its proactive work in the pairing of cats and their humans. To date, we have placed over 3,000 cats [and dogs] into loving homes.

FELINES & FRIENDS utilizes a comprehensive adoption screening process to enhance the fit between pet and their adoptive family. The organization also maintains a strict return policy if ownership commitment cannot be met.

All FELINES & FRIENDS cats are FELV/FIV tested, current on FVRCP vaccinations, microchipped, and spayed or neutered. If old enough, they are vaccinated against rabies as well.
