For those of you who know me, I am a huge lover of cats. My love is small in comparison to the work, time and love that the good people at Furry Friends put into cats in need.
"The Furry Friends Animal Shelter is a non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to providing shelter and love to abandoned, lost or rescued animals in the Barrie community. We provide care to almost 1,000 animals each year - mostly cats and kittens, though we also care for abandoned dogs. We do not euthanize healthy animals for any reason."
If you are in the Barrie area and want to adopt a cat that is looking for a good home look nowhere else but Furry Friends. Here is a list of cats that are currently looking for a good home! Cats for adoption. There is even a spot that you can do a search of exactly the cat that will meet your criteria.
Last year, the shelter adopted almost 530 cats which was a 21% increase from the previous year!
If you are not currently looking for a cat but want to help there are ways that you can donate! If you would like to make a donation online go to Canada Helps here which allows you to donate with your credit card, pay pal ore even your debit card and automatically gives the donor a tax receipt. Here is a page that shows just a sample of the work done with other donations in the past! http://www.furryfriendsshelter.org/news/92
If you want to help volunteer at the shelter, at PetSmart to help with adoptions or you wish to become a foster "parent" here is how you can do that as well! Volunteer
