What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Emma Feline Foundation (EFF)

EFF is a foster-based special needs soon-to-be cat sanctuary that advocates, cares and controls through TNR cats in Puerto Rico. As with people with rare and chronic diseases, these cats lack of medical care and prescription. These saved cats will served as companion pets while we serve our rare and chronic patients.
