Find the Purrrr-fect Best Friend

Check out our list of adoptable cats and kittens from Petfinder today!


Cat of the WEek: Kat!

Grab your tissues for this one, folks. Kat’s mom was one of our volunteers here at the shelter when she was diagnosed with cancer. She entrusted us with Kat’s care during her treatment but unfortunately she didn’t survive her battle. We lost a dedicated friend and Kat lost her mom. Adopting Kat to another forever home has been problematic though. She has a thyroid condition so when people hear this they pass – either they don’t want to ‘deal with it’ or they think it’s expensive. The cost of the pill she takes twice a day is about $.12 a pill (it’s $.23 if you want the coated version), so it’s not super expensive. She requires testing every six months or so to make sure her levels are where they should be. Kat was with us at the LaPlaisance Road location and made the trip to N. Dixie Hwy. What we really want for this sweet girl (and her mom who passed) is a forever home with a family that will love her the rest of her days. Your support and ‘sharing’ helped get our long-term resident Abby adopted last week. Let’s do it again. Let’s see how many people can share this post so we can get Kat another loving companion. Come see how awesome she is this week Thurs – Sat. 11 AM – 5 PM.

Visit her on Petfindertoday! 

Contact us to learn more or come visit her by stopping at our cat habitat Thursday – Saturday form 11 AM – 5 PM.

HOme for the Holidays  Event

Come visit us on Saturday Dec. 8th and enjoy games, refreshments and fun for all ages!

Home for the Holidays is an open house / cat adoption event on December 8thth, hosted by Friends of Companion Animals, the area’s only all-cat rescue. Guests are invited to food, drinks and games at the shelter located at the front of Detroit Beach off N. Dixie Hwy in Monroe. Plus, for those kitties being adopted that day they can get a family photo with Santa!

In addtion, anyone who attends with a bag of Purina Cat Food, 13 pound or larger, or a 35 pound pail of Tidy Cat Clumping Litter, could win a $50 PetSmart gift card! That means the more supplies you bring us, the greater your chance of winning since each item provides you a ticket in the drawing! For example, bring a large bag of Purina food AND a pail of Tidy Cat litter (since we are brand specific) and you’ll get two tickets!

It’s a great way to meet our cats and kittens face-to-face and perhaps put in an adoption application for a feline best friend because there’s no place like home for the holidays!

DATE: Saturday Dec. 8th

TIME: 11 AM – 5 PM


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!
