Helping cats and kittens in need...

Welcome to Friends of Felines

Mission Statement

Friends of Felines is a dedicated group of volunteers who protect and improve the lives of cats by rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming. We are based in Essex but also work in the Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, and London areas.

We believe every cat deserves a chance, and help abandoned, stray, neglected, injured and feral cats. We are able to undertake trap, neuter and return programmes (TNR) to manage feral colonies, and socialise feral kittens and shy cats. We pride ourselves on never turning a cat in need away and having a strict no euthanasia policy for healthy cats. We do not test cats for FiV as we do not see it as a problem for cats who test positive.

We  are lucky to be supported by two local veterinary surgeries who go over and above to ensure the cats and kittens in our care receive the medical help that they require. Our cats are matched to their new owners, and homes checked before they leave our care. They are neutered, microchipped, flea treated and wormed, and kittens are rehomed with an agreement and a deposit which is repaid when they are neutered.


We are a not for profit organisation and all donations go towards  caring for the cats and kittens in need of our support. This includes, but is not limited to, our vet bills, food and litter. Your donation makes a difference and  we really do appreciate it. We couldn’t do what we do without your support.
