The Feline Foundation of Greater Washington (FFGW)
An all-volunteer nonprofit dedicated to the rescue, care and adoption of homeless cats and kittens in the Northern Virginia (Loudoun, Fairfax, Alexandria, Arlington and Prince William) and metropolitan Washington DC community since 1995.
Garfield is quite the ladies’ man – a real charmer who is affectionate and loves being near you and having you pet him. Learn more about Garfield!
Marbles’ foster said she is the ‘gold standard of pets’ – a lap cat, well-mannered, playful, can entertain herself, and a great purr. Pretty too! Learn more about Marbles and watch some videos!
We specialize in matching cats and kittens with adoptive parents based on applications and in-depth interviews to identify the kitty characteristics that will best suit the prospective owner’s desires and lifestyle.
Thanks for considering helping the Feline Foundation — there are many ways to help!
Although we have no affiliation with these groups and do not know their specific policies, we would like to offer them as additional resources for you to consider.
Donate money directly to FFGW online! Donate to FFGW’s PayPal account! Donate via check! Donate using payroll deduction!
These are tales (or “tails” as we call them!) that you send to us, telling how wonderfully your adoption experience with “our kitties” has turned out! We love ’em!
Volunteer with Us
FFGW is a network of volunteers–we have no shelter or other facility–not even an office! We are, quite literally, where our volunteers are. Everything we accomplish is thanks to people like you who share their time and talents to help the kitties!
Feline Foundation of Greater Washington
Formed in 1995, the mission of the Feline Foundation of Greater Washington is to provide necessary veterinary and loving foster care for every animal in our program, to find them permanent, adoptive homes where they will be treated with love and respect for the rest of their lives, to provide foster care for life if no adoptive home can be found, and to educate the public regarding responsible cat care. We are a 501(c)(3) organization (EIN 54-1749459).
