the humane management of forgotten felines (community cats: feral, semi-feral, stray and loosely owned)
Forgotten Felines of Forsyth (FFF) is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, committed to humanely reducing the community cat population in Forsyth and surrounding counties through a low-cost Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program. We rely entirely on fund-raisers and donations from the public to keep our program running.
FFF was founded in 2004 by five concerned citizens of the Forsyth County area. These founding members had been involved in rescue and foster of cats for years.
They saw that the need for homes for cats never seemed to let up, and that many of the calls for assistance involved kittens that were produced by feral mother cats. The people who caught the kittens were not able to catch the mother cats to have them spayed, so the cycle continued.
The FFF founders decided that the situation would not improve unless fewer cats were born. With assistance from the Greensboro Feral Cat Assistance Program (FCAP), the founders learned how to trap community cats and operate a monthly clinic; and FFF was born.
