Felines First Rescue (FFR) is a no-kill 501(c)(3) registered non-profit consisting of a dedicated network of volunteers and foster homes who all strive to help and care for the abandoned, stray, helpless, and homeless felines in the Portland Metro area of Oregon. We extend our services to all over Oregon – and sometimes other West Coast states. Felines First was founded upon a passion to make a difference in as many feline lives as possible through foster care, adoption services, community education, and trap-neuter-return programs. We believe in assembling a team with an undying compassion for animals with a focus on collaborative work among team members and between local animal rescue organizations to maximize effectiveness for serving felines in our community.
Felines First Rescue takes pride in being an unique animal rescue. We serve cats of all ages (kitten to senior), all breeds, all needs, and all situations (feral, stray, abandoned, domestic). Despite our small size, we are able to provide an extensive amount of veterinary medical for rescued felines, from simple routine care to extensive specialized treatment. Unlike other rescues, our Executive Director personally attends to each phone call, e-mail, and Facebook message the rescue receives in order to provide personalized service and to best meet the needs of all those who seek our help or services. FFR has a lifetime return policy because we believe in providing furever homes for all felines – and we realize life happens in unexpected ways.
All felines are provided extensive veterinary services before leaving our care. Each kitten and cat are examined by a veterinarian, assessed for any special needs or other specialized medical care, vaccinated, tested, microchipped, and spayed/neutered. We believe in every adoption being PURRFECT and FUREVER; and are committed to providing post-adoption counseling and working as an expert resource for our community.
Feral Cat Awareness Team specializes in the capture, neuter/spay, and return or relocation of feral-born or abandon cats. We operate on donations only in order to help people of all backgrounds make a difference in the populations around their neighborhoods. Not only do we perform traditional T-N-R, but we also are capable of holding feral cats in our holding room until we find them a suitable barn, warehouse, or shop to live out the rest of their natural lives in the care of a willing caretaker. We are NO-KILL, and never euthanize due to behavior or numbers.
The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon is a spay/neuter program for cats. Our services are no-cost for feral, stray, and barn cats (donations accepted) and low-cost for pet cats, including vaccines. We serve Oregon and SW Washington.
FOLCAS runs the Pick of the Litter thrift store & other fundraising projects to raise money for shelter animal spay/neuter, local pet spay/neuter, and local pet veterinary assistance. We spent over $132K on these animal services in 2018.
The mission of Furry Freight Shelter Transport is to save lives by providing transport for dogs and cats from over populated areas to areas of high demand to reduce the euthanasia rate of adoptable pets.
