Word from Ben

Our first year as a cat rescue was a whirlwind of activity that almost knocked us off our feet! Ben Long knew the need for a cat rescue in our corner of Oakland County…

Ben Long, President. The Ferndale Cat Shelter.

The need was two-fold: a physical shelter and a trap-neuter-return program. From humble beginnings in May, 2014, FCS has built strong momentum, from an extensive foster network, trap-neuter-returns in Ferndale and Royal Oak Township, constructing outdoor cat shelters, and finding furever homes for 60+ cats and kittens. We held several successful fundraisers, and teamed up with several other organizations to TNR community cat colonies and vet adoptable cats and kittens. FCS has a core group of volunteers who have done amazing job, and a fantastic group of foster families that care for the cats until they are adopted. Several medical success stories also filled our first year, giving cats a second chance after being treated at the vet. 2015 brings big things for FCS, such as opening an actual shelter. And of course, continuing to do all the great things for our feline friends! Thank you all for your support! – Benjamin D. Long, President
