Felines & Friends New Mexico is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that
provides a no-kill community based haven for cats awaiting adoption. 

Can you spare 4 hours on Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday once a month? Can you spare 1 hour per week?  Do you have an extra room or space to foster a cat or litter of kittens? 

If you have a spare room or bathroom in your home and room in your heart for a furry companion; but are not ready to make the long-term commitment, please consider providing a foster home to a needy cat (or dog).

Adding a furry member to your family can be very rewarding.   We have cats and kittens of various ages available throughout the year.

Welcome to Felines & Friends New Mexico

The New Mexico Chapter of FELINES & FRIENDS was formed in 2001 and registered with the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission in March 2002. In 2013 we became FELINES & FRIENDS NEW MEXICO. To date, we have found homes for over 3,000 cats and dogs.

FELINES & FRIENDS is an all-volunteer rescue and placement organization providing second chances for shelter cats in need of more time or vet care, kittens from Trap/Neuter/Return projects. We do not have a shelter and rely solely on foster homes when cats are not on display for a week at a time at our Petco Adoption Center.

Raising funds to provide the best care for orphaned cats is an on-going concern. We do not receive any government funding. One hundred percent of our revenue is generated from adoption fees, grants, and donations. We are always seeking private and corporate benefactors.

FELINES & FRIENDS is a non-profit corporation registered and in good standing with the NM Secretary of State, NM Attorney General’s office, and the IRS.

As a "Second Chance" Organization, FELINES & FRIENDS NEW MEXICO works with the Santa Fe and Espanola shelters by accepting special needs cats, such as kittens who are too young for placement or need to be socialized, and adults who have health or behavioral issues, most of which can be resolved with loving attention and time.

We are proud to work with other shelters and rescue organizations to place as many animals as possible and give "second chances" to those with special needs. To date, we have found homes for over 3,000 cats and dogs thanks to the support of the Petco Foundation and Hills Pet Nutrition.

Please visit our Adoption Center located at Petco in Santa Fe during regular store hours. In addition, please come meet special cats at Teca Tu and Prosperous Pets in Santa Fe. Kittens are currently being featured at Xanadu at Jackalope on Cerrillos Rd.
