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 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 and 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 [EIN: 27-4453623]
City of Santa Fe Professional Animal Care Permit #23-001
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 5,000 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.
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.
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!
Thank you to the Zimmer Feline Foundation for their ongoing support!
