Target demographics: place cats and kittens into safe and loving homes and work with caretakers to trap/neuter/return cats and place the feral kittens into foster care for adoption once tamed.

Geographic areas served: West Seattle and surrounding areas

Programs: TNR, Foster Care, Adoption

Mission:
Our mission is to foster greater compassion for animals by example and through education.

Our primary goals are:
1) To reduce the number of animals abandoned, homeless, or killed until they all have a loving forever home.

2) To educate the community by providing information concerning
• The right of animals to a life free of abuse or neglect
• The resources that are available to those with a limited income
• Volunteer opportunities to rescue, care for, and foster pets
• The sad realities of failing to spay/neuter pets, and the plight of shelters
• The steps to take BEFORE bringing a pet into your life
Results:
Since FAF began in 1997, we have placed over 4,000 cats and kittens into safe and loving homes.

2012: FAF was able to help at two adjoining addresses in the Highland Park area of West Seattle this spring. A total of five feral female cats, all nursing were TNR'd. One male cat was also altered. 11 kittens were trapped and put into foster care. The kittens were all able to find new homes after they were spayed/neutered.

FAF and FCAT trapped 12 feral and one friendly cat living on the property of a home in Skyway. All were spayed/neutered and returned. FAF delivers 50 lbs of cat food monthly so the family is able to feed the cats healthy food, not rice as they had been eating. FCAT provided a huge Dogloo for shelter.

We received a call about hungry kittens at a property in Burien. We were able to TNR four adult cats on the property. Seven very sick kittens were put into foster care first with FCAT and then an FAF foster home. All seven are now healthy, altered, and looking for new homes. FAF and FCAT were able to provide shelter to the remaining four cats. The elderly, disabled caretaker was very thankful.

2011: Our goal for 2011 was 150 adoptions. We came just shy of that goal with 123 adoptions. We were also busy with TNR—about 120 ferals TNR’d.

2010: In 2010 we had a total of 125 adoptions!

My son and I took in one pregnant cat to foster, adopted her and two of her kittens... then fostered kitties for five years. Our favorites were the tiny bottle babies, motherless extremely young kittens who benefitted from tons of cuddling and mothering. I loved that I could speak for them ... more »

Our family recently adopted our first cat through FAF. It's been about ten years since I had a cat, so I had asked for some recommendations on what specifically to get for our new cat. Marianne walked me through the store and helped me gather all of the essentials I'd need for our cat, and made sure... more »

We found a litter of kittens at our work. By the time we had a chance to try and catch them, Mama had moved them elsewhere. We found one the next day and a volunteer came and picked her up right away. Over the next couple of days we found the other two, so it was time to catch Mama. The volunteer ... more »
