Second Chance Rescue & Placement

(505) 316-2281

For over 30 years, Santa Fe Cats has been providing premium boarding for cats and pocket pets and since November 2014, has been managed by Felines & Friends to benefit our mission.   www.santafecats.com

Whitefoot and Yoda are taking a break from being on display.  A Meet n Greet can be scheduled.

Do you have an extra room or bathroom, or space for a playpen cage to foster a cat or litter of kittens? Even if you travel or only live in Santa Fe part time, you can help! 

We are in urgent need of more volunteers!

provides a no-kill community based haven for cats awaiting adoption. 

Can you spare 2-3 hours to care for the cats at our Adoption Center? 

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

Feline Spotlight

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.  


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 physical shelter and rely mainly on foster homes when cats are not on display at our Adoption Center located inside Petco on Cerrillos Rd, Santa Fe.  However, cats who prefer not to be moved around, are housed at our boarding facility.

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 [EIN27-4453623]

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 4,000 cats and dogs thanks to the support of the Petco Foundation and people like you.


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 @ DeVargas.

Tune in to Pet Chat with Murad Kirdar, public relations officer of the Santa Fe Animal Shelter, and Bobbi Heller, executive director of Felines and Friends. Pet Chat is a locally produced show created especially for pet lovers here in Santa Fe. We will discuss and share topics that involve our beloved canine and feline companions, as well as other domestic animals you might have as part of your family. Pet Chat will have weekly guests who will give you more insight into animal behavior, nutrition, medical care, and so much more. Pet Chat is a discussion-based show on how to make your relationship stronger with your companion animals, while celebrating the human bond we have with our pets. For questions, feedback or topics, please email the team at Pet Chat at PetChat@SantaFe.com. 

​Adoption Habitat at Teca Tu is once again occupied by two special kitties waiting for a new home! 

While we are limiting access to the habitat, we can arrange a meeting by appointment.


If there is a volunteer inside the habitat, we ask that you remain 6 feet away.


​Please support Laurie and this wonderful local business!
