Small Contributions Make a Big Difference

How you can help  Our Homeless Cat Shelter

Friends of Companion Animals is more than just a cat shelter in Monroe. It’s an all-volunteer organization that is passionate about helping companion animals. If you would like to help us reach our goals, there are many different ways you can help. Sometimes it’s monetary and at others it’s a few hours of your time each week. Check out a few of the options below, along with our list of most needed physical items. Plus, first time Chewy customers can use the link below and our organization gets $20 with no cost to you!

Order your Pet Food at and Friends of Companion Animals will get a $20 donation!

Four Ways to Help our Homeless Kitten & Cat Shelter


Volunteers assist with cleaning, feeding, and socializing cats and kittens, as well as provide assistance with store operations. Although Friends of Companion Animal’s Resale Shop is only open Thursday-Saturday, there’s plenty to do all week long, so volunteers can pick the hours that work best for them. You can download an application here: FoCA Volunteer Application.


We need foster homes for orphan kittens, cats with kittens, and adult cats needing short -term medical treatment. This is an excellent opportunity for those who would like to have pets without the long-term commitment.


We have many adult cats as well as kittens seeking forever homes. Adopting an adult cat enables you to choose the personality that best suits your lifestyle while adopting a kitten provides years (and perhaps decades) of love.


Re-homing is as easy as providing shelter, food and water to a feral cat who will in turn provide years of cost-effective rodent control.
