Pre-Adoption Spay/Neuter — Start Date: July 2019 — End Date: OngoingFelines & Friends is an all‐volunteer cat adoption program operating out of Santa Fe, New Mexico since 2001. They have placed over 4,000 cats, kittens — and even some dogs — in Forever Homes. Many of these adoptions are of “second chance” pets, including special needs pets that they receive from the Santa Fe and Espanola shelters — kittens that need to be socialized and adults with medical or behavioral issues. Needless to say, that their adoption fees don’t begin to cover the actual veterinary costs incurred to ready these pets for their new homes. They approached us about helping with the spay/neuter costs. We were more than happy to offload this cost so they can focus on their other sheltering and veterinary costs of placing these very worthy cats. In the first couple of months, we’ve already funded 31 spay/neuters. You can see their sweet adoptable cats at Petfinder. Or if you’re in Santa Fe, visit their cats at Petco or Teca Tu Pet Emporium.
