Available Cats & Kittens
Don't Shop. Adopt.
All of FoCA's adoption fees cover their spay/neutered, FIV & FeLV tested, distemper shot, deworming and de-flea treatment.
Applications can be placed online or at our shelter during normal open hours.
We recommend getting pre-approved since we don't do same day adoptions

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.
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.
