Appalachian Feline Friends

Adoption policy

Established in 2016 as a charitable organization, what started as a few friends trying to save cats, has grown into a 24/7 feline rescue organization with numerous volunteers and a board of Directors. Many of our cats and kittens are fostered in homes with loving caregivers, while others temporarily reside in our main facility, Hazel\"s House (yes, there\"s a story). Regardless of which furry residents are where, all receive the best veterinary health care immediately upon intake, receive socialization and loving interaction throughout the day, and continue medical follow up throughout their stay with us on the road to adoption, including sterilization. Our volunteers are scattered about, but our rescue is rooted in rural Southwestern Virginia. We focus on saving adoptable cats and kittens from regional shelters that euthanize. Because only one of our surrounding counties has a shelter for cats, we also care for abandoned seniors and infants that otherwise have no place to be surrendered. We are striving to end euthanasia in the region that is solely as a result of overcrowding and lack of veterinary care. Through adoption, feral colony number reduction, and educating our community as to the importance of spaying, neutering, and regular veterinary care, we hope to minimize or eliminate feline over-population in this economically distressed region.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
