Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue (RMFR) was founded in 1982 with the mission to care for homeless, abandoned, abused, and neglected cats. Since its founding, the organization has grown into a limited-intake, free-roaming shelter with space for 125 cats. In 2018, RMFR was able to provide medical expenses, housing, food, exams, in-house surgeries, and medical treatment for over 2,000 cats and kittens!
RMFR does not contract with local governing bodies and receives no government funding. Instead, the rescue relies on individual donations, events, and grant fundraising efforts to support operation expenses. The rescue offers cat-safe indoor and outdoor spaces which allow shelter cats the freedom to explore their surroundings and genuinely interact with people and other cats. RMFR also utilizes in-store adoption programs to maximize adoption opportunities. The rescue has a robust foster network of dedicated volunteers who provide healthy environments for RMFR cats and help the felines develop strong social skills which lead to a high-percentage of permanent placements in furever homes.
Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue makes a lifelong commitment to every cat accepted into the shelter, and will do anything to find a good home for all residents. The rescue is more than just a shelter; it provides a safe-space for FIV+, FeLV+, and senior cat populations often overlooked by municipal programs. A cat may spend its entire life waiting for adoption, and RMFR makes sure it is a life worth living. RMFR will not euthanize a healthy animal and has no expectations for how long it should take any shelter animal to find their new home.
