JOB DESCRIPTIONS FOLLOW THIS BRIEF HISTORY OF FRIENDS OF FERALS:

Northern Colorado Friends of Ferals (NCFF) has spayed, neutered and vaccinated almost 11,000 homeless cats in northern Colorado, preventing thousands of future kittens from being euthanized in our shelters or struggling to survive outdoors.

Stray and feral cats are humanely trapped and transported to Fort Collins for surgery, treatment and recovery. These cats receive the same standard of care as any domestic, client-owned cat. We believe that they have been through enough in their lives already and deserve the best medical care we can give them! We ARE currently doing monthly clinics and accepting new volunteers. We have all necessary COVID-19 safeguards in place in order to protect the health and safety of our volunteers.
