The Full Story
Welcome to God’s Feral Felines. We are a nonprofit, volunteer organization whose mission is to help the kittens in Marshall, Cullman, and Blount Counties in Northern Alabama.
God’s Feral Felines (GFF) started as a hobby in October 2013 to help a single colony of cats. We had no clue what we were actually starting, and by Feb 2014 we had received our 501C(3) status and became a full-fledged nonprofit. Our central goal is to spay and neuter cats and kittens. To accomplish this, we have 3 programs that all work together toward this goal.
When we first started, we only offered TNR service. TNR stand for trap, neuter, and return. The purpose of this program is to trap those stray kittens that are hanging out at the park, behind a restaurant, or in many cases in neighborhoods where someone started feeding 1 cat which quickly became 20 cats.
In early 2016 we were given a private donation that allowed us to develop a program to help low-income households get their cats fixed at a reduced rate. Until this time the closest place to get a reduced rate spay or neuter was Huntsville. We were able to offer this program through local veterinarians in Marshall County, making it much easier to get your cat(s) to their appointment. In 2021 this program was expanded to help low-income households in Morgan County.
In 2019 we were blessed to be offered a lease on Dr. Brown of Arab Veterinary Hospital’s old office. The shelter officially opened on April 4, 2019. This has allowed us to rescue even more kittens while keeping our other 2 programs going strong.
At the end of 2020, through our 3 programs, we had spayed or neutered 3380
Please consider an investment in our organization and donate. We are making a difference.
Later in 2016, with the opening of a new PetSmart in Albertville, and us being accepted as an adoption partner we began to develop our kitten rescue program. Our goal in this program was to take in bottle fed babies, that otherwise would have no other option other than to be killed. We did this all through foster homes.
