Mission: Giving Cats and Kittens a Second Chance at Life (LYFF)
Based in North San Diego County, California, Love Your Feral Felines strives to live by our mission through our many life saving programs. We focus on educating the public on spaying/neutering and the process of TNR to reduce the number of feral cats and kittens entering shelters. Love Your Feral Felines, is a non-profit animal rescue organization funded by donors, dedicated to helping the San Diego County homeless cat population.
With TNR, feral and homeless cats are humanely trapped, spayed/neutered, tested, vaccinated, and returned to their original location. The breeding stops, and the behaviors associated with mating stops (spraying, fighting, yowling). TNR is the only long term, effective humane solution in controlling feral cat population.
We assist local shelters with our Barn Cat Program, where we save feral and semi-feral cats from euthanasia and place them into barn homes where they can help control the rodent population.
In May 2017, we started our Under-Socialized Kitten Foster Program focusing on saving kittens deemed “feral” in local shelters from euthanasia. After a few weeks in a foster home these kittens generally become social and are ready for adoption into their forever indoor homes.
In 2020, Love Your Feral Felines was selected as the “Best Charity” Winner in the San Diego’s Best Union-Tribute Reader’s Poll.
In mid-2021, Love Your Feral Felines opened its own adoption center in Vista! Opening our own cage-free adoption facility has been a long-time goal of ours and we are so excited to see this dream becoming a reality. Adoption center visits are by adoption appointment only at this time.
In 2021, Love Your Feral Felines was selected as the “Best Charity” Winner for the second year in a row in the San Diego’s Best Union-Tribute Reader’s Poll!

Please note our mission is to help cats and kittens in the local shelters system so we cannot accept owner surrenders of cats or kittens at this time.
