What We Do

We spay/neuter as many homeless cats as our finances allow on a regular basis, and there is never a time when we have a surplus of money with no cats to spay or neuter. Forgotten Felines volunteers feed over 500 homeless and abandoned cats every day.

We are in desperate need of cash donations and cat food, as well as volunteers able to help us with our TNR Program (Trap, Neuter, Release) and volunteers to provide foster homes for adoptable felines until placed into forever homes.

2014 Update

Forgotten Felines is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit cat rescue group in the Middle and Lower Keys, founded in 1997 with the mission of introducing and implementing a TNR (trap / neuter / release) program, helping abandoned and stray felines in need, and assisting low-income residents with food for cat colonies they were feeding.

Ever since Forgotten Felines founded and introduced, the TNR (Trap / Neuter / Release) Program, the homeless and stray population in the Florida Keys has decreased.

A couple of sad facts are that more cats than dogs enter shelters all year round and the euthanization rate at shelters for dogs is 30%, while it is 70% for cats. Also, abandoned and homeless cats not cared for suffer terribly from parasites and diseases, and often die slow and painful deaths.

We are always in need of volunteers to help at our Purrfect Thrift Sore and colony caretakers or colony sponsors.

If you would like to adopt a kitten or cat, please stop by our Purrfect Thrift Sore at 6303 Overseas Highway, or find us at Petfinder.Com

under "Keys Forgotten Felines" to meet our adoptable felines.

Forgotten Felines cannot thank everyone enough for all their help, support, and donations.

If you would like to take a more active role in our wonderful organization as either a volunteer, donor, sponsor or serve as a board member, please submit an application via this website, or call us at 305-743-2520.
