"CIRCLE OF COMPASSION" FUND for FRIENDS OF FELINES
Friends of Felines' "Circle of Compassion" is the new name of our special donation program dedicated to support those homeless cats who need just a bit more than the usual routine medical care for treatable injuries or illness.
Circle of Compassion cats are loving and deserving, but need extra medical care in order to have happy and healthy lives. With this care, we hope that these cats will eventually be ready for a second chance at a good life with a loving family.
Please consider donating to our "Circle of Compassion" to help us treat those cats with the extra or specialized care they need. Friends of Felines is a registered non-profit organization so all donations are tax-deductible. Click here for donation information.
Cats who have been supported by our Circle of Compassion Fund in the past include Buster, who had intestinal surgery at Cornell University and is now a happy and much loved member of a real family. And Vivian, who wandered into a leg hold trap and is now a comfortable member of her own family thanks to Animal Specialty Center and her FOF foster home.

Foster Homes - and Volunteers - Always Needed
There are so many more homeless cats and kittens than foster homes. Kittens especially need to have early socialization with people before they are ready for permanent adoption. It is a great short-term commitment to help cats in need, especially if you are not ready or able to adopt a cat.
If being a foster parent to a homeless cat is not for you, there are many other ways to volunteer with Friends of Felines. Click on our volunteer section to learn more.
If you would like information about other volunteer opportunities, please contact us by telephone: 203-363-0220 (New as of 9/07) or send email to email@example.com
