FFGW is about transforming the fortunes of unwanted kittens & cats. We heal them, find forever homes & if an adoption fails, we begin again.

Because FFGW has no facility, we literally are wherever our volunteers are. This includes more than 50 foster homes where FFGW kitties live as family members until adoption, whether it takes days, months or, in the case of the residents of our “virtual sanctuary,” even a lifetime.

Bija, Serb, Vlad & Thom came to us from an urban shelter this summer. We thought they just had nasty upper respiratory infections that just didn’t seem to get better. But after consulting a specialist, it turned out they were born with a rare congenital defect called agenesis, which means they were born without eyelids! They cannot blink and their eyes are vulnerable to injury and irritation. Now on multiple daily meds to protect their eyes, the kittens are almost big enough for surgeries—at the cost of $1000s for each kitten—that will eliminate the need for medication. While this sounds overwhelming, we have to tell you that these babies have not missed a beat. They have absolutely NO idea that anything is wrong and are everything kittens should be.

FFGW is 100% volunteer, 100% donation supported and 1000% invested in the kitties we rescue. The majority of funds raised go to vet fees for our cats and kittens. That’s about $100 per kitten and $250 per adult when healthy, but unquantifiable when they are not. PLEASE GIVE TO FFGW ON GIVING TUESDAY—DECEMBER 1, 2015!

Even the smallest gift on that special day will allow us to give happy pain-free futures to kitties like Bija and her brothers. A recurring monthly donation to cover ongoing expenses will help even more. Razoo makes it easy: after you click "donate", simply change "one-time" donation to “monthly”! We never want to turn away a cat or kitten because we're low on funds, and with your help, we won't have to.
