Friends of the Animals Foundation

A nonprofit organization


Our mission is to foster greater compassion for animals by example and through education.


Purpose Description: To provide rescue, care, and rehoming of stray and unwanted cats and kittens. To also assist with medical care for feral cats and cats of people on fixed incomes.

Mission Statement:
Our mission is to foster greater compassion for animals by example and through education.

Our primary goals are:
1) To reduce the number of animals abandoned, homeless, or killed until they all have a loving forever home.

2) To educate the community by providing information concerning
• The right of animals to a life free of abuse or neglect
• The resources that are available to those with a limited income
• Volunteer opportunities to rescue, care for, and foster pets
• The sad realities of failing to spay/neuter pets, and the plight of shelters
• The steps to take BEFORE bringing a pet into your life


With your help we are able to rescue and find homes for a LOT of cats and kittens! Many adoptions are adult cats, some older or with medical issues. In addition to finding homes, we spay/neuter many feral cats and the cats of people living on fixed incomes or without permanent housing…and we are also able to keep many of them fed and sheltered.

To our volunteers-fostering, providing hospice care, cleaning cages, helping at adoption events, maintaining our website/social media, donating supplies/money, and hanging out with Santa—THANK YOU so much for all that you do.

We are also extremely grateful for our partners—Petco-West Seattle for housing our cats; Mud Bay Uptown, Burien, Admiral, and @Thomas for letting us hold adoption events, and their generosity with reaching out to us as Giving Tree recipients. We are also very fortunate to be part of many employee matching programs.

The list could go on...

It is often difficult, messy, emotional work that we do, yet cherish so many fond memories. We know that the work we do will—and must—go on. We are so very grateful for your ongoing support to make what we do possible!
