What We Do

Friends of Companion Animals Feline Rescue & Adoption Center is an all volunteer, 501c3 nonprofit animal welfare organization that has been preventing unwanted litters from growing up on the streets or entering the already overcrowded animal shelters in Monroe County since 2011.

Shelter Hours: Wed- Sat Noon to 5 PM

Resale Shop Hours: Wed – Sat Noon to 5 PM

So if you’re interested in adopting a cat or kitten… or if you’d just like to spend some time playing with some feline companions in our playroom, feel free to stop into Friends of Companion Animals and see who’s available! Our kitties will love the companionship and you’ll have a great time too and if you have any questions feel free to reach out to us.



What You Can Do


It’s not glamorous, but if you’ve got a few hours on certain days there are always cats that need cleaning and general care…and cuddles too. If you’ve got a spare room we also need fosters too.


Don’t have time or the ability to roll up your sleeves to help. We do take monetary donations along with bottles for returns to raise funds for odds and ends the shelter needs.


We are brand specific to certain Purina products – Kitten Chow, Naturals Original and Gentle. Yes, beggars can’t be choosers but using the same products helps avoid tummy upset.

FOCA took on another hoarding case in 2023 – this one in LaSalle – and several local TV stations took an interest and helped us spread the world. If you’d like to make a donation to this ongoing case click the button.


We got a loan to buy our shelter but the bank holds the deed so we need your help. Bring your bottles and cans to us at the shelter and we’ll put the money toward helping our rescue and keep our home!

Discourage rodents and provide a companion for other farm animals. Each cat is spayed/neutered and vaccinated so they are ready to ‘work’ and be a friend.
