Salem Friends of Felines is a no –kill cat shelter and adoption center serving Marion and surrounding counties. We are a limited admissions rescue that believes in helping every kitty we can, by ensuring it will not reproduce an unwanted litter of kittens, and by also helping those that are abandoned, unwanted and homeless find a loving forever family home. Every life matters!
Our Shelter & Adoption Center can house about 50 cats and kittens at a time, so we rely on volunteer Foster Homes for the many more cats and kittens we serve.
We also have a Thrift Store that is located just a few doors down from our main shelter that is located close to downtown Salem. Sales from the thrift store help offset some of the costs of caring for the kitties.
Our Affordable Spay & Neuter Program provides financial assistance for spay and neuter surgeries to Marion and surrounding county residents to reduce cat homelessness.
We are a small organization with only 9 employees, one manager and 5 shelter technicians and 3 thrift store employees. The rest of our organization is entirely volunteer based, including our board of directors.
By supporting these lifesaving programs, you are helping cats in our community live happy, healthy lives with their loving families. We do not take any money from the government, and rely on the support of people like you for the success of our programs.
The mission of Salem Friends of Felines is to help as many homeless cats as we can by placing them in loving, permanent homes and reduce feline overpopulation through education and our spay/neuter assistance program.
