How Frankie's Friends Was Formed
Frankie’s Friends Cat Rescue arose due to a need for long-term care of abused cats. Over 500 cats, both dead and alive, were removed from an institutionalized hoarding facility by the authorities. We cared for these cats from the day of rescue through the many months during court proceedings while their fate was being determined.
After the defendant was convicted of animal cruelty, the cats were finally free to be adopted. We worked on getting the adoptable cats into loving homes, but when it became evident that some of the cats would never be well enough for adoption and would require life-long care, we couldn't turn our backs on them.
We formed a Care Center just for those special cats, where they would be able to live out their lives in comfort - cared for by their veterinarian, technicians, and volunteers for as long as they are with us.
Now, our mission is to stop cats from suffering from cruelty, neglect, disease, injury, homelessness, and to reduce the number of cats (with high volume spay/neuter services) that enter shelters or are euthanized due to overpopulation.
