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, 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! In addition, 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 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

Cat Rescue:

Give Him a Second Chance 


“Chance” was found near PetSmart in Monroe, MI and brought into the store. Friends of Companion Animals (FoCA) cat rescue center was called to see if we could help him. A microchip scan revealed that he is been adopted in August 2017 at four months old to a home in Southfield Michigan from a rescue located in Walled Lake, Michigan. His adopters didn’t report him missing and they had him declawed, which is against the organization’s policies. Because of this contract breach, the rescue has retained custody of Chance.

Since he is now back in their possession, they are responsible for his medical costs and care. In fact his original foster from when he was a kitten will be fostering him during his recovery. After the veterinarian examination, it appears that his jaw is dislocated or broken. They surmised that the injuries he sustained are consistent with riding under or inside the engine compartment of a motor vehicle and ultimately falling from that vehicle. 

Currently, we are seeking funds for his vet care so any monetary help we can give is appreciated. You can send your checks with a ‘memo’ note that says ‘Second Chance Fund’ to:

Below are some additional images but they are more graphic in nature. However, it illustrates the extent of his injuries and why funds for his care are desperately needed.

Friends of companion animals would like to thank all of the attendees of our fifth annual auction fundraiser, which was held Saturday, October 21, 2017. People came out to enjoy a delicious dinner and bed on a variety of items, from gift cards to local businesses to gift baskets and more.

As a completely volunteer run, nonprofit organization, all proceeds from our auctions go directly to support the care of our shelter and its felines. It’s always wonderful when people come out to support our endeavor of making Monroe County, MI free of homeless and unwanted cats.

So again, we like to extend our thanks to everyone who donated items and to everyone who show up for our events. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
