About The Feline Rescue Association (FRA)
Tax ID Number: 26-0427900
The Feline Rescue Association (FRA) is dedicated to improving the lives of unwanted and homeless cats and kittens, be they friendly or feral, through rescue, adoption and spay and neuter.
What does FRA do?
FRA is an all-volunteer organization working primarily in the Baltimore Metropolitan area with cats and kittens who are struggling to survive on the streets. We work to promote spay/neuter and responsible pet ownership particularly in low-income communities, often facilitating spay/neuter for those cat owners without means or resources. FRA is also available to answer questions about feline care, diseases and behavior, as well as feral cat colony management.
Why just cats?
FRA focuses on cats but will not ignore a dog in need. Our volunteers have rescued many dogs from the streets. If you would like to volunteer to be an emergency foster for a rescued dog please contact us, as we rarely have the resources to house a dog even for one night.
Who is FRA?
As of yet FRA consists of a volunteer "staff" and network of foster families. Board of Directors
FRA a 501(c)(3) organization?
Is FRA a shelter?
No, we are a rescue group operating out of private homes. We have a permanent adoption center located at the Petco in Owings Mills (10383 Reisterstown Road).
Is FRA no-kill?
We do not euthanize due to time/space constraints or adoptability. We will only euthanize a cat if it is suffering and unlikely to recover. We do euthanize cats with Feline Leukemia because of how difficult it is to place them and the contagious and devastating nature of the disease. We do NOT like to do this. You can help us change this policy by volunteering to take FLV+ cats or contributing to our capital campaign for a facility of our own!
Can FRA take my cat?
FRA's primary function is to help homeless cats. We do not accept owner surrenders in most circumstances. Please contact us for help with keeping or rehoming your cat. Make sure you visit our guide to getting help from cat rescues here.
