Who are we?
Feline Rescue Foundation of Alberta (FRFA) is a registered charity based in Calgary, Alberta that provides rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing for cats living on city streets and in rural areas. We are a NO-KILL organization.
Feral, abused, abandoned or lost, we believe that these cats all deserve to be safe, loved, and cared for. Many of the cats that come to FRFA are deemed difficult, with some considered ‘unredeemable’. Experience has taught us that is not the case. A cat that has never known anything but hardship, neglect, and abuse can hardly be expected to respond kindly – but patience, kindness and respect can work miracles. Often the most extraordinarily loving cats are hiding behind these facades.
How do we care for our cats?
All cats that come to our foundation are provided with veterinary care if injured or ill. They are vaccinated, spayed or neutered and ID tattooed prior to being put up for adoption. We believe that spaying or neutering is the most humane and cost effective way of reducing animal suffering, critical overpopulation and other problems associated with the homeless cat population.
How do we fund our efforts?
FRFA relies entirely on donations, grants and fundraising events. The majority of these funds go to veterinary care. Provisions such as food and litter are another major expense. Please consider helping us out if you’re able, either through a donation or contributing as a volunteer, adopter, or foster home. Every little bit helps!
