      Honor a Special Cat | Individuals
      | Groups | Individuals & Groups | Sponsor | Advertise  

      Honor your feline "soul mate" - that special kitty whose purrs echo in your heart, who shares your joys and comforts you in times of need and who always seems to know your state of mind and be there for you. Celebrate that special feline's life or honor their memory by donating in their name. Their name will listed on The Honor Roll with a link to a specially and individually designed webpage displaying their picture(s) and information. 

      What individuals can do to help Rescue
      Homes, fosters, and transport help are generally needed
      all over the country. If you can provide either, please post a message to The Feline Rescue Network Message board.

      If you wish to offer help or have something to donate to rescue, we also list offers to meet wishes in our wish lists and you can use our Adopt-A-Rescue form to let us know to post your offer. Rescues often need all sorts of things that many people discard or have destroy without thinking. Old towels, pillow cases, blankets can come in very handy, for instance. Check the Wish Lists and you will be able to see the type of things rescues are requesting.

      All those individuals posting offers and providing help through our Adopt A Rescue Group program will be eligible to display the "An Act of Heart" award and will be listed on the Act of Heart Honor Roll. 

      What Groups can do to help Rescue
        Adopt A Rescue Group!
      Has your cat club, lodge, scout troop, or other non-rescue organization "adopted" a cat rescue (helped them fund raise and collect items for their use on a regular basis) or does it run a rescue service? Let us know and we will offer to honor your group on this page with a link to that rescue or your group's web page and you or your group will have the option of displaying one of our awards. All those posting offers and providing help through our Adopt A Rescue Group program will also be thus honored. 

      The catteries whose breeders do rescue and support rescue groups are honored by listing in our Cattery Listings, and will not be separately listed on our award page as a result. These breeders have affirmed their  caring and commitment to the welfare of cats through their support of responsible pet ownership, principles of reputable breeding, rescues efforts, and animal welfare ideals and are eligible to display the "An Act of Heart" award.
