LONG ISLAND FELINE ADOPTION CENTER INC
July 3, 2010

The Long Island Feline Adoption Center is truly unique among cat shelters. It is Cage-Free, with an environment filled with stimulus (TV's, cat trees, cat condos, toys, etc.) and love. The shelter is maintained meticulously: it is clean and bright and a delight to be in. Although in existence only for one year, and with no advertising, LIFAC has been unusually succesful - adopting out over 200 adult cats and kittens in the first year of its adoption center operation. This is a testament to the organizations unusual approach centered in love and respect - and freedom. At any given time, there are more than 1000 cats and kittens being cared for at the shelter and at foster homes (and colonies maintained by volunteers). Also unusual for a 501(c)(3) - not a penny of the donations is spent other than on the cats and kittens. There are no officer salaries. There is no "sneaky" contracts for professional services to siphon funds. There are no "expense accounts', and there are no services (apartments, cars, etc.) provided to anyone. This charity is genuinely all about helping and caring for the animals.
