Friends of Companion Animals Changes Lives






Bringing Felines and Humans Together


Our vision is to have a county free of homeless, unwanted companion animals, to have all free-roaming cats spayed or neutered and under the care of reliable caregivers to achieve this vision. We seek to stop the overpopulation of felines through spaying and neutering and to match adoptable cats with the appropriate ‘furever’ homes. 

As an all-volunteer organization we’re always looking for people who can donated their time, supplies,  money or ideas for creating a better world for homeless cats and kittens.

About Us

Beyond a Cat Adoption Center

Along with our cat adoption center, we have a trap-neuter-release program for cat colonies where there is someone to feed, water and provide shelter for feral cats. 



Founded by Penny Bly, Friends of Companion Animals is a 501c3 nonprofit that’s focused on the spay/neuter of feline companion animals to control pet populations. Since 2011 our mission has been to promote spay and neuter of all companion animals and to help find suitable forever homes. Today, however, we have narrowed our efforts to focus on cats and kittens in our program to aid felines of Monroe County, Michigan.

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.


Fund Raising & Money Donations

We don’t receive money from any state, county or city departments so our survival depends on ideas and events that garner funds for pet care.



Private individuals and companies in the community are welcome to bring us physical goods too because any help is appreciated.

Friends Of Companion Animals Feline Rescue & Adoption Center

Friends of Companion Animals Feline Rescue & Adoption Center is a 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. Friends of Companion Animals encourages the spaying/neutering of companion animals and conducts trap-neuter-release in public places where free roaming cats are prevalent. In one year we prevented an estimated 1,200 potential puppies and 17,420 potential kittens from being born as homeless pets, and we have socialized and rehomed numerous kittens. We are a dedicated group of volunteers that believe together we all can make a difference for the companion animals of Monroe County!
