That would be my daughter who runs "Forgotten Felines". Her & her boyfriend started this website to try to find homes for the stray cats they take in (1 - 3 at a time is all they are able to accomodate & pay for at one time). They get each one vet checked, neutered, get vaccinated - and they spend time socializing the cats so they are able to learn each cat's quirks, so as best be able to place them in a good home (some cats dont do well with kids, some hate other cats, etc.). She does NOT include her address on that website because people tend to think that they can just dump off strays (or their own cats). They don't have a lot of money & do not have the room available to take in too many strays at one time. They use one room as a quarantine room - until it is vet checked for feline aids, leukemia, etc. so as to not infect their own cats who also live in the house. It's also not a very big house to begin with.
They are careful about who they adopt the cats out to, to best insure that the cats aren't returned to them after the fact. They get attached to those cats & want them in good homes. The $30 re-homing fee they charge when they adopt out a cat is for a reason.
1 - It more insures that the people want the cat for the right reason (as opposed to selling it to a lab or to creepy people who like to torture animals). It enures that the people who adopt are serious & will take care of the cat properly.
2 - The re-homing fee helps to pay the vet bills & for the food. This injured cat she's asking for donations for - they've already spent over $50 just to have the injured foot looked at by the vet & the antibiotics it's on. The cat still has to go back to the vet for possible surgery, it's shots, checked for feline aids & leukemia, and neutered. That visit will be about $120 at least - for a stray. They pay out of their OWN pocket & the re-homing fees barely cover the vet bills.
They started working with strays simply because there's so many where they moved to & Paws & Whiskers, Humane Society - Ohio, etc. - do NOT take in stray cats anymore. Paws & Whiskers is a group of people who foster cats - to absorb the overflow that the Humane Society can't handle. The Humane Society tells you straight out when you take a stray in, that it WILL be put to sleep - no other option, they simply don't have enough room & staff to deal with so many strays.
"Forgotten Felines" was born out of a need to want to help - it fills a gap that Paws & Whiskers & the Humane Society do not fill. They are small & do not have the funds or space to have a lot of strays just dropped off at their door - which is exactly what would happen if they included their street address on the website. As it is, they get calls all the time from people wanting them to take litters of their kittens off their hands.
"Forgotten Felines" is NOT shabby or seedy. They are very careful & take all precautions to help as many strays as they can. Unfortunately - not all strays are adoptable, or will get adopted - some are just too feral. But they still make sure those cats are vet checked & neutered before releasing them outside again. This is far more than most people would bother to do.
At any rate - this poor cat she's asking for donations for - any little bit will help, even if it's only a couple of dollars. (their vet suggested that they put up a pay pal link on the website for donations.) It's heartbreaking. Take a minute to check the website out & look at that cat's mangled foot. He's on antibiotics, but he's in pain & may need a couple of stitches. My daughter hopes to be able to get this cat in to be helped before it gets so bad it will lose the foot entirely. They've been fortunate that they found an excellent vet who gives them discounted vet costs - only because they are strays. I can get the name of the vet if anybody cares to check this out. (I can't recall it just this minute).
