Friends2Ferals

Friends2Ferals is dedicated to improving the lives of community cats and humanely reducing their numbers over time utilizing TNR (Trap/Neuter/Return).

Friends2Ferals is a program of the 501(c)(3) non-profit Humane Society of Buncombe County. The program is dedicated to improving the lives of community cats and humanely reducing their numbers over time utilizing the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) method. TNR has proven to be the most effective and humane method of dealing with the issue of feral and free-roaming cats thus decreasing the intake and subsequent euthanasia of unwanted cats and kittens into local shelters. F2F also provides spay/neuter services to those individuals in Buncombe county that cannot afford to do so themselves.

Friends2Ferals Kitten Naming Contest!!!

Hi Everyone -

These little cuties were born in one of our traps 3 weeks ago. They're doing really well in a wonderful foster home. We'll let you know when they're available for adoption!

In the meanwhile, we'd like your help in naming them!

We don't just "Fix Cats" - we also rescue a lot of kittens and abandoned pets that are ultimately rehomed by our local rescue and shelter friends!

We know that times are tough right now but please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us continue our work.
Thanks once again for your generous support!!!

Two Weeks in a Row!!!

For the second time in 2 weeks a cat has given birth in one of our traps! And someone has already stepped up to foster them!!!

This is great news for both mom and the kittens, all of whom will be adopted to loving homes! Should mom prove to be a little too undomesticated she'll be returned to her colony, fixed and up-to-date on her shots! But you never know - she might mellow after a few weeks indoors with her babies!

Kitten season is upon us once again (did it ever end?)!

"Awww..." Moment of the Week!

One of our incredible volunteers, Jan, caught this image on her outdoor camera.

"Here's White Ring greeting her sister Socks with a kiss, upon her return to the colony after surgery.

While feral cats are afraid of humans, they have a strong bond within the colony like these girls demonstrate here."

Pretty cute!!!

Once again - a big THANK YOU to those who contributed to our new van fund! We'll post some more pix as soon as Charlotte's signage has been completed! She's a dream vehicle!

Please consider making a $5.00 gas donation. We're on the road everyday, all day long, setting traps and transporting cats.

Every Dollar Helps! Thank You Again!

Nancy really put Charlotte (the brand new F2F van) through her paces this week!

Charlotte transported 26 cats in her first week - 15 for spay/neuter surgeries and another 11 for medical treatment!

Once again - a very big thank you to everyone who helped make Charlotte a reality!

03/18/2021

Charlotte, the new F2F van, is already being put through her paces!

As of this morning she's transported 24 cats to their spay/neuter surgeries!

We hope to install a shelving system soon to better utilize her wall space.

In the meantime, her passengers (including Nancy) are warm and safe!

Thanks once again to our generous supporters!

03/17/2021

Everyone - meet Charlotte - the new Friends2Ferals van!!! Isn't she a beauty?

We can't begin to thank our incredibly generous supporter who made this dream a reality!!!

Charlotte was put into service on her very first day, providing a warm, smooth, safe ride for the day's catch!

She'll be getting her signage soon!

Thank you all again for making Asheville a better place for our beloved community cats!

03/05/2021

Some of this week's van passengers!

Aren't these three just gorgeous? A big shout-out to our new volunteer, Jan, for trapping them!

The F2F van, Bessie, is vital for placing the traps , transporting the animals to their surgeries, and returning them to colonies, rescues and shelters. Sadly, Bessie has over 300,000 miles on her and must be retired.

We know these are tough times for everyone but please consider making a $5 (or more) tax-deductible donation to this cause.

Two of our incredibly generous benefactors have offered to match all donations up to $15,000!

Every dollar helps! Thank you for your generous support!
