Friends of Ferals

One of the thousands of feral cats in Colorado

Welcome to the online home of Northern Colorado Friends of Ferals.

We are an all-volunteer organization dedicated to bettering the lives of feral and stray cats in Northern Colorado.

Due to cat overpopulation, there are millions of stray cats and kittens in the U.S. Since these cats have no homes, they sometimes live difficult lives explosed to extreme weather, disease, injury and sometimes human abuse, all without medical care or compassion. And since most are not spayed or neutered, they reproduce unhindered, perpetuating the problem of cat overpopulation and continuing the cycle of misery.

In partnership with our fantastic volunteers, NCFF works to address the problem of cat overpopulation through our monthly trap-neuter-return (TNR) clinics. Every month, we trap feral and stray cats, neuter or spay them, vaccinate them, treat them for medical conditions, then either return them to their colonies or place them in foster care if they are adoptable. TNR is evidence-based and is the most efficient and humane way to decrease feral cat numbers and stop the mass euthanasia of these cats in shelters.

Since our founding in 2009, we have vaccinated and neutered/spayed 6600 cats. We have found forever homes for 780 stray cats and kittens through no-kill shelters and have re-homed 200 feral cats in barns.

We invite you to learn more about what we do by exploring these pages! If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us <link to “contact us” page>. And, we are always looking for good volunteers! have altered and vaccinated 6700 cats in 7.5 years of operation. 780 stray cats and kittens have found homes through no-kill shelters and 200 feral cats have found barn homes.

Each month we trap, spay or neuter, and return feral cats to their colonies. This approach, called “TNR” (for trap/neuter/return), is the most efficient and humane way of decreasing feral cat  numbers and stopping the euthanasia of these cats at shelters.
