Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: The mission of dane county friends of ferals is to establish a no-kill standard and to promote the value and well-being of dane county's feral cats.

Programs: We rescue cats from life-threatening situations and provide food, water, shelter, and medical care until we find them homes with responsible caregivers.

trap-neuter-return (tnr) programs offer a humane and effective way of solving the cat overpopulation problem. Free-roaming, un-owned, and unsterilized cats are trapped, neutered, and returned to their original home.

we adopt feral cats to outdoor rural homes that provide food, water, and shelter from inclement weater. We adopt tame cats to indoor-only homes. All of our cats are delivered to their new owner to ensure they are going to a good home.

Friends of Ferals does an incredible job saving lives and promoting the health of cats, both tame and feral. They practice Trap-Neuter-Release, allowing feral cats to live but not reproduce, finding many of them outdoor homes with families in rural areas. They also do a great job of finding homes for tame cats in our community, and provide spaying and neutering for many hundreds of cats every year. We have chosen to support DCFOF because they do so much good work in such a professional manner even though they have limited paid staff. They have a big group of dedicated volunteers and a strong board. They've had a national grant for several years to work with the county Humane Society to achieve a no-kill status for healthy cats, and they have just celebrated the one year mark of having EVERY healthy cat homed in our county. NO healthy cats, feral or tame, had to be euthanized in Dane Co. since April 2012. This is a huge achievement. Now that the national grant is ending, they need the community to step up and support them so we can maintain this amazing success into the future.
