Frankie’s Friends Cat Rescue arose due to a need for long-term care of abused cats. Over 500 cats, both dead and alive, were removed from an institutionalized hoarding facility by the authorities. We cared for these cats from the day of rescue through the many months during court proceedings while their fate was being determined.
After the defendant was convicted of animal cruelty, the cats were finally free to be adopted. We worked on getting the adoptable cats into loving homes, but when it became evident that some of the cats would never be well enough for adoption and would require life-long care, we couldn't turn our backs on them.
We found a house just for those special cats, where they would be able to live out their lives in comfort - cared for by their veterinarian, technicians, and volunteers for as long as they are with us.
Frankie's Friends Cat Sanctuary currently houses 46 "Tiger Ranch Rescue" cats. These cats have a three story house with a sun room, attached 16ft x 16ft enclosed "gazebo," enclosed upper porch, and their own live in veterinary technician. The cats are cared for by a small but very dedicated group of individuals who attend to all of their needs.
