I live in Delray Beach, FL in Palm Beach County. We have a tremendous overpopulation of homeless cats in our area. These cats are also known as Community Cats or ferals and they need our help. They did not choose to live without a home and it is our responsibility to care for them by providing them with food and spaying/neutering and vaccinating them.
My focus is on TNVR (Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate, Return) in low income areas. Unfortunately, I find many sick and injured cats and kittens at these places. There are no public resources to help these sick cats so I have taken many off the streets to try to help them. I need to fundraise to help cover the cost of vet visits, food, transportation and other materials and equipment needed to help these deserving kitties. We foster kittens and find them homes so they do not have to suffer in the streets.
At first, I just wanted to get in touch with people in Delray Beach so we could help the cats in our city and I created a page on Facebook called https://www.facebook.com/CommunityCatsOfDelrayBeach/
but soon realized there were many cats in need in other parts of Palm Beach County. I speak Spanish and I started to visit mobile home parks with a large population of Spanish speaking residents and large populations of cats.
In 2016 I founded Animal Friends Project, Inc. and became a 501c3 organization. I have extensively networked and I am lucky to work with many rescue partners and generous veterinarians to help as many cats and dogs as possible.
