Founder's Message

Jess & Baby Darwin - Copy.JPG

Welcome to NFFAR!  We are a community-based organization with a national vision.  When I started the foundation in 2003 I envisioned making a difference in the lives of animals and the people who care for them with the same passion and commitment that I have always had.  Today, we have placed more than 500 animals in permanent, loving homes and secured a safe haven for countless feral cats who are nothing less than victims of human irresponsibility.  Through our low-cost spay/neuter program and other services I we have made an impact for the good of our community.  We are take pride in educating the public about animal welfare and a humane and ethical approach to animal population control.  Our volunteers of all ages are enriched by their experiences and we by their contributions.

Thank you for making the world a more humane place for all.
