I can't thank enough this organization for finding me my little fluffy boy Coby! The first time I met them, I have no idea on how to start taking care of a cat but they helped me without hesitation and I've seen how they are truly dedicated on how they work with their lovely kittens! I've known them for years and I am truly grateful because of them, our house is filled with joy because of my little furball. I recommend them to everyone who is interested adopting or fostering cats! Thanks again Annette and Ciana for helping me! 100% support for Fifi feline friends!

Very dishonest people. My friend asked me to pick up her cats for her from this group and they gave me the runaround using the most ridiculous lies. They told my friend they tried to call me and I didn't answer. (They did not.) The biggest lie was that they claimed to have moved so I couldn't stop by to pick up the cats, but they hadn't. The police are now involved.

I met these people when my heart strings were tugged into fostering what I thought were abandoned cats and kittens. :C It is possible they use their non-profit as a front to a breeding mill.

These people have stolen and presumably sold my fur babies for profit. Our family is devastated. They offered to help babysit them while we went to a family reunion and PCSed back in October of 2019, and then made crazy excuses about why my cats could not be handed over to the shipping company or a friend.

My niave heart felt terrible for them and kept believing their compulsive lies until push came to shove and I demanded the return of my cats. Now they have disappeared and won't remain in contact.

They like to use medical excuses, and have come up with some whoppers. From cracking a tooth, to being attacked by brown recluses, and nearly dying of CO poisoning. They even claimed to have moved but they are still at the same address.

BEWARE!

I met Annette and Cianna after the loss of my little kitten Donavin. He had been such a sweet boy but had come from a rough place. From his loss came their friendship. I loved working with Fifi's and fostering their cats. I worked with 3 different bottle babies, each one stealing my heart in their own way. I had to leave the island, but ill be staying in touch for a long time to come. Annette became a mentor in caring for babies, and Cianna a life long friend. They are good people and deserve the world for their organization. It does so much good and brings people together for the sake of animals. Keep it up guys. Cant wait to help some more.

A stray mother cat delivered a litter of four kittens in our carport storage room. My elderly father wanted to keep the cats, and we needed to have all five cats neutered or spayed. When I called Fifi Feline Friends, the owner Annette (who is also an experienced veterinary technician) made the time to help us. She came to take them to the clinic for the surgery, provided complete pre- and post-surgery care, and brought them back with no need for further medication or treatment. If my father had been willing to give any of them up, Annette would've also tried to home those who were friendly enough.

I learned that Fifi Feline Friends has been extremely active in hosting community events (education) while continuing TNR activity and homing cats in need. Annette and her volunteers are a powerhouse team, working to improve life on Oahu for both the cat population and the human community. Annette's dedication to the goal of her non-profit organization, her energy, and her determination are amazing and admirable. Fifi Feline Friends is definitely a top-notch animal welfare group.

I have been doing TNRM for a very long time. I have worked directly with Annette, Cianna and other volunteers. They in turn volunteer other groups as well. She really has a passion for what she does and has saved many lives thru TNR, fostering and volunteers at spay neuter clinics for cats and dogs. ❤️

Amazing people that care. You can notice a real, positive difference in their feral communities over the last few years. And every one of their adoptable kitties is a love bug! That only happens when they are raised and nurtured with love. I will definitely look to them when we are ready for another furry addition!

Best Charity in Hawaii hands down. I was recommended to them by my coworkers and they came the same day to help with an orphaned kitten. I did not know what to do or where to turn. They send me updates and photos of the kitten and took care of all the costs involved. Bless you Annette for helping this sick baby when no one else would return my calls or come onto Fort Shafter to help.

This organization is professional and compassionate. They helped us learn how to tnr and we now volunteer as much as possible to further their works. Annette, Cianna, Misha, and Sarah all helped my family personally and are tops in our book.

I have had numerous feral cats roaming my neighborhood and I heard this group would come to my home, trap, fix and release them somewhere safe. I could never afford to do this so was shocked that these good hearted people came to my home and provided this service to numerous feral cats.
They treated the captured cats with such gentle care and kept me updated at their every step of the way.
What 2 incredible ladies ( Annette & Cindy) to come to me on a Saturday night and take their valuable time to make our neighborhood a little better and providing a service that I could never thank them enough. I will continue to donate whatever I can and hope other cat lovers do the same. THANK YOU ALL!!!! Great experience. I can be contacted anytime to answer any questions about this service they provided me. Truly Good hearted people that I completely trust.

Terrific organization that really cares about helping cats live their best lives and connecting them with people. I often hear from the military leaders about the noticeable positive difference in the feral colonies. Their adoptable cats are great; go to any of their adoption events and you will see healthy, social cats that are ready for homes.

I needed help and did NOT know what to do or where to turn. I called Fifi’s and they helped me immediately and saved the sick litter of kittens I found. I can not thank them enough for their dedication to saving lives.

One of the worst non-profits I've ever encountered. Annette, who runs FFF, will drop off completely feral cats to volunteer fosters and not mention that they're feral and unhandleable. Then when the fosters need support, medical care for the cats, or for the animal to be taken back, they completely disappear. She's done this to several of my friends. The business is run completely haphazardly. Annette and I were acquaintances in rescue. I helped her trap feral cats etc. She offered to take some of my rescue kittens to adopt out and also my pet adult cat to cat-sit short term. When I messaged her ready to pick up my adult cat and the 8 plastic kennels she borrowed from me, she disappeared, refusing to meet up. This criminal has my cat and 8 transport kennels, while unwitting kind citizens donate to her scam every day.

These people dedicated their whole life to kitties and their safety. They deserve lots of love and support. If you adopt a kitty through them you will have a beautiful, well cared for and amazing healthy best friend. They also volunteer as Vet techs at some clinics around Oahu and they are part of the TNR program. Good job Fifi’s keep doing what you are doing! We are grateful for you guys

Fifi's Feline Friends is a wonderful group that does so much with so little! They have a unique mission supporting trap/neuter/vaccinate/return on Army bases in Hawaii which educates the military members and their families, and contributes to a healthy and non-reproducing community cat program. They have the biggest hearts and the smallest budget, so any help you can give them to continue this lifesaving and educational work would be awesome!
