Friends Of Felines - Port Republic Pet Shelter

Friends Of Felines

Friends of Felines’ focus is on rescuing free roaming or abandoned cats and placing them in managed colonies or permanent homes. Working with property owners and families throughout Calvert County Maryland, we help curb cat overpopulation at its source by providing a humane alternative to euthanasia. Our objective is to decrease the number of displaced cats and work alongside other rescue groups, Animal Control and the Linda L. Kelley Animal Shelter in our shared goal to make Calvert County a place where healthy stray cats are given a better future. All the cats we trap or rescue are tested for feline leukemia and aids. They are spayed or neutered and given all their shots. They are micro- chipped for later identification. The cats that are returned to managed colonies are ear-tipped so Animal Control personnel know they have been vetted. Still pick them up. By employing methods of trap, neuter, return and maintain (TNRM) we provide citizens with the tools and the training to care for cats on their own property after they have been fully vetted. The cats that can be socialized are placed in our volunteer foster homes. Our foster families create a nurturing environment for each cat and kitten until they are adopted. We have volunteer adoption teams that hold adoption events on a weekly basis. Semi-domestic cats are placed in barn homes throughout Maryland and Virginia. We maintain a cat Sanctuary on land provided by our County Commissioners. Those few trapped and rescued cats which cannot be socialized and cannot be returned to their original dangerous location are relocated to the sanctuary where they are maintained by our volunteers. We welcome volunteers and donors who wish to share their time, talents, or resources to support our foster program, adoption teams, trappers, transporters, feeders, and administrative functions.
