Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animal-Related, Animals

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.

Fancy Cats Rescue Team does an amazing job helping cats! They’re a fine group of caring, dedicated volunteers who sincerely care about the welfare of cats. They all work hard to do the best for every cat under their care. They welcomed my foster cat, George, even though he’s FIV Positive. Fancy Cat Rescue Team took George under their wing, cared for George, and found him a fine home where he can be happy and live a long life. I’m so grateful to Fancy Cats Rescue Team for all they did for George, as well as many, many, many other cats!

These folks have pulled and rescued so many "last minute" down-to-the-wire cats, and have worked very hard in making successful rescues of needy kitties. I am so grateful of all the work they do to help get new homes,medical care and emergency rescues..
