I have the utmost respect and admiration for Frankie Kangas and all those who help and support her efforts with FIV Cat Rescue. Having been a proud guardian and pet parent of a rescue (feral) FIV cat myself, I know first-hand there is nothing to fear and only much love to give and receive in return when one of these felines come into your life. Thanks FIV Cat Rescue for offering the world education and truth about FIV cats and helping to save and encourage adoption into forever homes of these wonderful deserving cats.

FIV Cat Rescue began its very important work by hands on rescue of cats testing positive for FIV antibodies. Recognizing they could not take in every FIV+ cat, they soon began their greater work. That work is to help folks recognize that FiV is not a death sentence. That these cats can live long and healthy lives.

FIV Cat Rescue's website is unparalleled. This site shares the most up to date FIV research, helping to inform and educate other rescues, shelters and individuals, thus saving countless lives. It also serves as a network to help find homes for FIV+ cats.

Kudos for FIV Cat Rescue!
