Mission: Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded in August of 1997 by Catherine McCullough.
As all organizations and agencies have space limitations, we are trying to provide a "safety-net" for cats that are moved to the euthanasia list at local animal shelters.
We believe that these cats deserve a second chance, and have found loving, lifetime homes for many of them.
We want a lifetime home for our cats and want to ensure the best match of cat to owner.
Results: More than 18,000 cats have been adopted out.
Direct beneficiaries per year: approximately 1000
Geographic areas served: DC Metropolitan Area
Programs: Fancy Cats Rescue Team rescues cats that would otherwise be euthanized. We bring all vaccinations up to date and spay or neuter all animals that are over six months of age. We need donations so that we can continue providing this service. We spend nine to thirty dollars more than we collect as our adoption fee on most of the cats that come through our facilities.
