With your help we were able to find homes for 108 cats and kittens this year! 16% of the adoptions were adult cats, some were older or with medical issues.
In addition to finding homes, we were able to spay/neuter many feral cats and cats of people living on fixed incomes or without permanent housing…and we were also able to keep many of them fed and sheltered.
To our volunteers—fostering, cleaning cages, helping at adoption events, maintaining our web site/social media, donating supplies/money, and hanging out with Santa—THANK YOU so much for all that you do.
We are also extremely grateful for our partners at Petco West Seattle, Mud Bay—Uptown, Burien, and Broadway at Thomas—for housing our cats, letting us hold adoption events, and their generosity with reaching out to us as Giving Tree recipients. We are also very fortunate to be part of many employee matching programs.
The list could go on...
It is often difficult, messy, emotional work that we do. But as we close 2017 with so many fond memories, we know that the work will—and must—go on. We are so very grateful for your ongoing support to make what we do possible!
There were 64 adoptions in 2016, with 27% of those being adult cats.
In 2015, as in 2014, we were able to find new homes for 98 cats and kittens—22% of those were adult cats—thanks to your support. Going into a new year, we have five special and unique adult cats looking for homes. Please share and help us get these cats into new homes in a new year.
On August 15, 2015 FAF moved from our Next to Nature-West Seattle adoption space. We so much appreciate all that the owners and staff of NTN, past and present, have done for our cats. We had been at the store about 15 years, and with an average of 100+ adoptions a year, that is a huge impact on the homeless cat population in the area. We have only well wishes for NTN in their next journey.
FAF is STILL West Seattle based, yet goes and helps wherever there is need…Our new West Seattle location is PetCo—West Seattle. We are very excited about the partnership with PetCo! We have been able to place several ADULT cats—always a challenge—since having this new location.
