CATS RULE! Feline Rescue is a small but growing collective of animal lovers, rescuers, & friends based in Fairfax, VA. We help needy animals of all kinds, with a focus on feral cats & animals on death row in kill-shelters.

CR!FR is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit 501c3 rescue & advocacy organization. We rely on donations & volunteers to accomplish our life-saving work. We do everything we can to help animals:

- rescue needy, homeless, unwanted, & feral cats & kittens & dogs & puppies
- rehabilitate, spay/neuter, & adopt rescued cats & dogs to loving homes
- maintain a sanctuary for unadopted rescued cats
- respond to e'mail requests for help with feral cats & shelter rescue efforts
- practice & promote TNR (humane population control of feral cats) & lend out humane traps
- transport animals from high-kill rural shelters to safety
- transport injured wildlife to local licensed rehabilitators
- relocate feral cats to barn homes when possible
- demonstrate against puppy-mill-supporting stores, circuses, etc
- attend community festivals & events for fundraising, advocacy & outreach
- create unique crafty items to sell for fundraising
- educate & advocate for cats & animals at every opportunity
- etc!

Our funding situation is always stressed, as are most rescues, & our HQ always needs work! We incur a lot of veterinary & daily care expenses related to our rescued cats & dogs & are always grateful for support.

Thank You!
