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. Furry Friends is a volunteer run organization. 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 deductible.

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.
