Small town cat rescue

Our story

Friends of Ferals TNR and Cat Rescue was founded in 2022 by a compassionate and dedicated Port Neches resident who loves cats and is committed to making a difference in their lives. Our founder started this project out in her own neighborhood after when she noticed the cats on her street were becoming more and more abundant. She had heard of TNR and thought it would be a good idea. In May of 2022 she started her first Facebook fundraiser for TNR and raised approximately $3,000 for TNR efforts and caring for homeless cats and kittens.

Initially, our focus was solely on Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) activities to control the local feral cat population. However, as we delved deeper into this mission, we found ourselves coming across cats and kittens that required immediate help—those who were sick, injured, or in dire conditions. These cats needed a little extra TLC, some needed medical attention that required extended recovery, and others were not feral and considered adoptable, while others were too young to remain outside alone. This unexpected but vital part of our journey led us to expand our services to become a Cat Rescue as well.

Given the limitations of our resources and to ensure that we provide the best possible care, we’ve established boundaries on our rescue operations. At present, we only take in cats and kittens from the Port Neches area, as that’s the extent of our current capacity. This focused approach enables us to channel our resources effectively, ensuring that we can make a real difference in our local feline community.

Our Mission

Our mission is to humanely reduce the overpopulation of feral cats in Port Neches, TX by raising public awareness, Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), and rescuing homeless but friendly cats and kittens that we find along the way.

The TNR approach involves humanely trapping feral cats, getting them spayed or neutered and vaccinated, and then releasing them back into their colony. This helps to reduce the population of feral cats, prevent the spread of diseases, and improve their overall health and well-being.

In addition to TNR and rescue, Friends of Ferals Inc also provides other services for feral and stray cats, such as providing food, shelter, and medical care. The organization also works to educate the public about the importance of TNR and responsible cat ownership.
