I was introduced to Fancy Cats in October 2006 when I was adopting 2 new kitties. I was so impressed with the professionalism of the volunteers, their knowledge of acclimating a new cat into a home, and many other feline issues that I decided to become a volunteer myself. Once I became a volunteer and I realized everything that went on "behind the scenes", I was even more impressed with the dedication of the President, Cathy Awad, as well as many of the other volunteers, who give an incredible amount of their own time to make sure that all the cats receive appropriate care and are adopted to the right people. The thing I like best about Fancy Cats is that it is not about the numbers. They would rather continue to take care of an animal then to adopt them to anyone questionable. They screen all adopters and have no problem saying no if the fit is not right. Having said that, I would not be opposed to instituting a brief (even one day) waiting period prior to adoptions just in case some relevant information could come to light in that time, for example via interview with the listed veterinarian that might not have been available at the time of adoption. I will continue to support Fancy Cats in the future in one form or another. It is a fantastic organization filled with dedicated members who work selflessly to help as many animals as they possibly can. I highly recommend this organization to anyone who is looking for the right new feline addition to the family.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
interacting with the volunteers and the many people I get to meet while working at adoption events.
