What are you doing with that spare room this winter? Your spare bedroom, or even a closet or bathroom could be the difference between life and death now that it's getting cold. Would you consider fostering a cat or kittens in that room? Feline Urban Rescue and Rehab (FURR) is an all-volunteer animal rescue and we are always in need of foster homes to provide shelter, care and love to rescued cats and kittens.

Being a foster parent is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. You'll be directly responsible for the health and well-being of creatures, that, in all likelihood would not have survived the winter without your help. Nursing rescued animals to health and seeing them find wonderful furrever homes is a priceless experience! It can also be an incredible learning/teaching opportunity for your family.

It is also a great responsibility and requires the most time and commitment of all of our volunteer roles. FURR offers a dedicated, talented and experienced group of foster parents that will lend support and guidance. FURR also pays our partner vets directly for all medical expenses (spay/neuter, vaccines, medical treatment). Our foster coordinator will work with you to balance your level of commitment, ability and previous experience to match you with foster cats/kittens that are suitable for your particular situation.

Mission Statement

To educate the public on the necessity of spaying and neutering, which will drastically reduce the number of free-roaming cats. To help reduce the vast number of cats that are taken to shelters and killed every day because of lack of space. To promote compassion and empathy toward cats and all animals.

Description

Feline Urban Rescue and Rehab, Inc. (FURR) is a volunteer based non-profit cat rescue organization. We are a progressive and responsible group, committed to spaying and neutering and providing proper veterinary attention to all cats that come into our care. FURR finds homes for more than 250 cats per year. We are active in doing companion animal adoptions which entail placing friendly cats into good, loving homes. Additionally, we socialize feral cats and kittens whenever possible, and we provide low cost spay neuter options for those who need them. We also assist individuals and communities with feral cat colony management, fixing hundreds of cats every year using the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) method, which helps to humanely control free roaming cats. All of our cats and kittens are either in foster care in private homes or are residing in one of our 3 adoption centers, which are at the Petco stores in Whitehall, PA or Phillipsburg, NJ or at the PetSmart in Easton, PA. FURR has an organizational presence in both states.
