Best Friends Felines are dedicated to rescuing cats and kittens from all over Brisbane and coastal areas. Whether they are rescued strays from streets and colonies , saved from death row from the pound or owner surrendered we will take them all in . When they come to us they are placed into loving foster homes where they will remain until they find their forever home however long that takes as we have a no kill policy. Recently adopted Aladar was in care for 31 months before being adopted.
We will have all vet work completed whilst in our care, including desexing, vaccinating, micro-chipping and worming/flea treatments. Some come in needing more extensive vet work which they will receive in our care. Moo for example cost just over $4000 in life saving surgery within hours of arriving into care and complete her regular vet work .
The adoption fees and donations are the only funding we receive to assist in continuing to re-home our cats.
From January to October in 2016 we have adopted 263 felines , spent almost $80,000 on vet work and have over 130 cats currently in foster care.
In 2017 we are hoping to set up a therapy companion cat program for depression and anxiety sufferers and ASD and other special needs individuals.
We are also hoping to set up a pensioner desexing scheme where we assist low income earners to have their pet desexed.
We have a long term goal to implement a school educational program to educate the next generation.
We will continue to be their voice , we will be their advocate and we will save as many as possible.
