About Fancy Cats and Dogs Rescue Team

Location:

P.O. Box 182, Herndon, VA 20172, US

Mission Statement

Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded in 1997 and is a completely volunteer run non-profit, no-kill cat rescue. Our mission is to end needless euthanasia at shelters in the National Capital area by rescuing and finding suitable lifetime homes for our cats, promoting spaying and neutering, and educating the public on responsible pet ownership.

Description

Fancy Cats Rescue Team is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The Fancy Cats Rescue Team is a passionate leader in the animal rescue community with over 20 years experience. Founded in August 1997 by Cathy Awad, Fancy Cats now has three PetSmart Adoption Centers, an adoption center at Chico's Pet Depot and 100+ volunteers.

We provide adoption, rescue and education services by finding suitable lifetime homes for our cats, rescuing cats on death row at local shelters and educating the public on responsible pet ownership. We aspire to offer in-house spay and neuter services.

We live by our core values of integrity in all our dealings; compassion for all life; respect for our cats, our constituents and each other; and teamwork. We are responsive to our donors, adopters, volunteers and the public. Our volunteers and staff are recognized for their responsibility, dedication, knowledge and helpful service.

We provide these services for cats that would otherwise be euthanized, potential adopters, donors, local animal shelters, and our community.
