Furry Friends, founded in 1999, is a Vancouver, WA, 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill cat rescue and adoption organization.

We strive to help cats in the Vancouver-Portland Metropolitan and surrounding area receive the medical services and companionship they need. We are operated entirely by volunteers. Our Mission is to rescue abused, abandoned or otherwise homeless cats and house them in a safe, healthy and socialized environment until we find new “forever homes” for them. Furry Friends is funded by both individual and corporate donations; and as a 501(c)(3), non-profit, donations are tax deductable.

Volunteer time or resources to help us. There are lots of ways you can help homeless cats outside of adoption or fostering.

We are committed to finding foster care for cats, whether they are abandoned, neglected, homeless, and/or have special needs.

Being small gives us the opportunity to know each cat – their personality, what they like to eat, and how they like to play.

Your monetary donations – which are tax deductible – enable Furry Friends to continue our rescue program and community outreach.
