Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue's mission is to provide a safe haven for cats and kittens with exceptional medical care including life-saving surgeries. With a robust foster program led by a team of devoted staff and volunteers, RMFR is working with regional partners in high impact areas to reduce euthanasia rates and homeless cat populations. The culmination of our work does not end when a cat is adopted; instead, we move our cat loving community forward through education, low cost vaccinations and a compassionate rehoming program.
Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue (RMFR) was established in 1982 as a volunteer board-run and managed limited-intake feline shelter. Today, RMFR is a free-roam, limited-intake shelter with the capacity to have up to 125 cats and kittens on-site, and a foster program that extends our life-saving capacity to over 300 cats and kittens at any given time.
At RMFR, we believe life is enriched through feline companionship. We are committed to finding safe and healthy homes for every cat we are able to accept into our care, no matter how long it takes. By providing low-stress and safe indoor and outdoor spaces at our shelter and in foster homes, RMFR felines are able to develop strong social skills with the freedom to explore their surroundings, and have genuine interactions with people and other cats. In 2020, RMFR was able to provide shelter, medical treatment, including in-house surgeries, and a second chance for over 1,700 cats and kittens.
Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue strives to innovate by introducing compassionate, cat-centric programs to our roster of care. We do not contract with local governing bodies or receive government funding to support our operating expenses; instead, RMFR relies on community partnerships, in-store adoption programs and events, individual donations and fundraising efforts to fund our commitment to serving the needs of homeless cats and kittens.
