HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – With the coming of cold weather, our thoughts tend to turn to helping the homeless. That’s what this week’s Pay It Forward is doing — helping the homeless, the four-legged kind that is.
Michelle Marron started Forgotten Felines, a 501-C non-profit organization, some years ago with the idea of rescuing feral cats. “Our main mission of the group is to stop the mass reproduction of feral and domestic cats,” said Marron. “We are talking huge spay and neuter, in fact we do adoptions and our adoption money is turned right back around into two things, the spay/neuter fund for our group and medical issues for the cats in our care.”
According to Michelle, their mission has been extra hard this year. “We have already run through our spay/neuter budget . I know part of it is probably a down-turned economy, but the other part is there are just so many animals out there living on their on, not spayed or neutered.”
Forgotten Felines does not have a shelter and relies on foster homes to help care for the rescued cats and their adoption center is at the Jones Valley PetSmart.
If you would like to help Forgotten Felines continue their mission, there are several ways you can do so. Be a foster home, adopt an animal permanently, help with fund-raisers or make a donation. Visit the Forgotten Felines website, or send them an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, spay and neuter your pets. It’s the one thing we all can do to help cut down on the number of homeless cats and dogs.
