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.
