Rating: 5 stars 1 reviews
Location: PO Box 1176 Newburyport MA 01950 USA
Mission: The MRFRS was founded in 1992 in response to the overpopulation of feral cats on the waterfront area of Newburyport MA. The MRFRS opened an adoption center in 1993 and has a large network of foster homes for kittens. Since its founding the MRFRS has placed over 4500 cats and kittens. In 2000 we will place over 500 cats and kittens and spay or neuter another 500 feral cats in Northeastern MA. The MRFRS acts as a role model for other feral cat rescue groups.

MRFRS furnishes more than just food & shelter for those cats that are quick to find forever homes: it means not ending ANY cats' lives prematurely just because they are homeless, lost or feral. We do not euthanize any of our feline residents (even if they are FIV+ or FeL+), unless it is medically necessary. Our shelter is a safe haven for many cats who would otherwise be in a rather perilous position. We have mobile spay/neuter facilities, known as the Catmobile, which offers affordable sterilization & Rabies vaccinations. MRFRS also puts on a feral spay/neuter clinic every month in Methuen MA, which helps to reduce the amount of stray cats trying to survive in the wild. The organization is run by compassionate staff and volunteers and has made a huge impact in the nearly 20 years since it was founded in 1992.
