No Feline Left Behind is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization improving the lives of stray, abandoned or feral felines by educating, advocating and direct hands-on care through TNR, fostering and adoption. We are not government funded; therefore private donations are essential and appreciated. We are located in Denver, Colorado. We encourage everyone to aid in our daunting efforts of an unending task to curb feline overpopulation. "A Community Saving a Colony" is our slogan as colony caretakers are vital to the survival of many strays, and we support them by providing TNR services and adoption using socialization when possible. We help all homeless cats, including transport and surrenders who require limited or no vetting. This allows for adoption fees from transport or surrenders to help our rescue efforts to best meet the needs of local community felines. Please note our adoption fees never cover all the care we put into the local community cats.
Many animal shelters are at maximum capacity regarding tame cats. "Unadoptable" cats, or aka strays and ferals are left to fend for themselves. These cats unfortunately only qualify for Denver's Trap-Neuter-and-Release program (TNR). While we do provide TNR service, we believe it should be done as a means to protect the best interest of the colony or cat being trapped. When trapping, lost cats should be reunited with their owners if possible, any tame cats unclaimed should be adopted out and very sick ones humanely euthanized. We prefer Trap-Neuter-Rehome. Too often scared strays are often labeled feral as people fail to understand the difference. Every stray deserves a better life and possibility of adoption through socialization, but are often denied this opportunity simply because they are trapped as older kittens or young adults. Socializing depends on life experience and temperament, but we lack fosters who want to help abandoned house cats to learn to trust again. Strays and ferals returned to outdoor life after sterilization should have a colony caretaker to at least provide food and water and ideally shelters.
