To improve the lives of all cats and the people who care for them
Longmont Friends of Feral & Abandoned Cats (LFFAC) emerged as an all-volunteer group of people who had a passion for helping domesticated, unsocialized cats living the wild life. In 2011, the feeders from our first two colonies, Big T's and the Hood, joined efforts to ensure that food and care were given on a daily basis to "our" 35+ cats. Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate and Return became a priority. By 2012, it became apparent that LFFAC would benefit from becoming a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and by 2013, this became a reality. LFFAC continued to grow in both volunteers and cat colonies to 40+ volunteers and 6 colonies, Big T's, Blues', Jimi's, Tippy's, Dynasty's, and Joey's. The cats from the Hood, thru necessity, were removed and relocated. LFFAC expanded its efforts beyond the colonies and began offering its services to residents in Longmont and then to outlying areas. While remaining a Longmont centered group, LFFAC now provides assistance in surrounding areas such as Platteville, Mead, Berthoud, Lyons, Fort Lupton, Boulder, Thornton, and others. LFFAC remains an all-volunteer group that is driven by its passion for helping feral, community cats to remain healthy and cared for in the wild and to help lost or abandoned socialized cats to find their way back into human homes.
LFFAC is a valuable partner to LHS and to the community. The care they provide feral and community cats is a specialty that no other local organization fulfills. Longmont Humane Society appreciates being able to rely upon LFFAC for support with TNR as well as fielding questions from community members with neighborhood cats. In addition, LFFAC is skilled at taming feral kittens so that they can enjoy their lives as companion cats for our adopters. The work that LFFAC does compliments Longmont Humane Society's mission to Care, Serve and Educate to improve the lives of companion animals by controlling and reducing feral cat populations. A plus for everyone, including the cats!

Longmont Animal Control enjoys a wonderful working relationship with Longmont Friends of Feral & Abandoned Cats. They are a great resource for us and the citizens of Longmont.

Wow, what a great organization! Last September, we discovered a litter of three feral kittens behind our business. We called the humane society, who referred us to Longmont Friends of Feral & Abandoned Cats. They not only responded immediately, but spent days capturing, spaying and neutering, and returning the kittens. They expected nothing in return, but we were glad they accepted our donation.

I would like to thank all the wonderful ladies from LFFAC that helped round up the feral cats at my place. I'm not sure where they all came from but it was getting out of control. With your help we rounded up 10 adult cats and 7 kittens. The adults were spayed or neutered and returned to my barn. The kittens were taken to foster care to be socialized and then adopted out. The ladies were all very kind to the cats and to me. The adults are all doing great! I can't believe we accomplished this in one weekend. Thank you so much! I couldn't have ever done this alone.
