Mission

Fabulous Felines NWA, Inc., is focused on improving the welfare of felines in Northwest Arkansas. Our organization is now going into our sixth year and last year alone, we rescued, vetted and rehomed over 800 cats. We are an all-volunteer group of dedicated individuals who foster unwanted and abandoned kittens and cats in their homes. We hold adoption events at PetSmart in Rogers, AR and Fayetteville, AR. We keep animals as long as necessary to find suitable adopters. Our cats go through comprehensive vetting, and all are spayed or neutered and microchipped. Vetting expense averaged $81 per cat in 2017. Public education is also part of our goal to enlighten the citizens of our area regarding the issue of cat overpopulation and resultant problems for our communities. We are active contributors to our vetting partner, Spay/Arkansas, and fund feral days during which time many feral cats are trapped, vetted, including spay/neutering and returned to their feral colonies.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our primary goal is to assist each and every stray and abandoned feline in our area. Objectives toward this goal include spay and neuter programs and individual vetting of each cat in our system. Also we are working with the public to educate them regarding the need for responsible cat ownership, and the value of pets in any given family.
Our secondary goal is to encourage Bentonville AR to build a state-of-the-art no-kill animal shelter for the benefit of all animals within this community.

We are using advertising and word-of-mouth at our adoption events and through social media to broaden our network of assistance and
knowledge regarding the plight of felines in Northwest Arkansas.

We have talented, resourceful volunteers who work tirelessly to publicize and promote our objectives. We also receive cooperation from our adoption partners, including Petco and Petsmart.

We are bringing in new volunteers each month and are now well-known within our area as a responsible and compassionate
organization, focused on the welfare of cats in Northwest Arkansas
