After 17 years of operation, Furry Friends has a home of its own.
The nonprofit purchased its first home on Aug. 5 and officially moved 19 cats in on Sept. 24. The new halfway house for cats seeking adoption is in the West Minnehaha neighborhood. It is 1,662 square feet and sits on more than half an acre of property.
“As far as we’re concerned, we’re never moving again,” said Diane Stevens, the marketing and publicity director of Furry Friends. “Once we get this paid down, we’re going to figure out how to add in another wing, or maybe build a feral cat colony. We have all this room. It’s just a matter of money.”
