Forgotten Felines of Culpeper is a nonprofit 501(c)(3). Our actions speak for us ~ we are passionate about what we do! We stand on our reputation ~ voted Best Animal Rescue in 2021 and 2022 and Best Nonprofit in Culpeper County in 2020, prior to a Best Animal Rescue category. Whether it's looking in a field for hidden kittens that were dumped on the side of a road, rescuing a kitten 50 feet up in a tree, finding funding & getting surgery for a kitten found with half a leg or for a cat with an enormous bite wound, driving 4 hours round trip to save the life of cats on death row at a shelter, spaying/neutering and rehoming a colony of 44 cats behind a local restaurant, or helping an emaciated cat that was shunned by a neighborhood, we are there. WE CARE and WE ARE COMMITTED TO HELPING LOST AND ABANDONED CATS/KITTENS IN OUR COMMUNITY.
Forgotten Felines of Culpeper became a 501(c)(3) rescue in June 2018. We are an all VOLUNTEER rescue. 100% of donations going to the care of our cats. No money is received from the county or government.
Here are just some of the things we do:
Forgotten Felines of Culpeper. Rescuing the abandoned and forgotten, with no cat left behind.
Tina D.: Wow! I feel so blessed to have happened on Forgotten Felines of Culpeper. Lynn DeFazio not only returned my call promptly. She was kind caring and put me in touch with a person able to help take a stray that I could not care for after a month of searching for help. ...not without instruction however that if it did not work out to let her know... She assured me she would help me not to worry.... And did a follow up... AWESOME... Thank you Lynn and God Bless you and people like you who care so much...you made it happen! I am so grateful
Chad B.: I live about an hour away but they still took the time to give me resources to help a stray cat I had found. The tips they gave me really helped in securing him a home!
Brittany P.: Hands down the best cat rescue in Culpeper! So grateful that FFC was able to help me out with a feral cat and her 5 newborn kittens. The founder, Lynn is truly a godsend to cats & kittens with her willingness to do just about anything and everything, in record time, to make sure all the feline furbabies are safe and sound.
Brittany L: Not only did they respond within 30 minutes to my message about finding a kitten, but they went above and beyond communicating and helping me until a foster could pick it up. I would highly recommend this rescue! Thanks Lynn and Shelly!
Jessica N. : This organization has such a heart for the many local cats and kittens in need of homes. They provide excellent communication throughout the adoption process and ensure that new pet owners are prepared to provide welcoming, healthy, safe homes for these precious kitties. I am still in awe of the wonderful care our kittens received in their foster home. As strays, they came into care in a pretty ragged state. But now, after lots of love and attentive care, they are healthy, bright eyed babies that are growing beautifully. Thank you, Lynn, Bobbie Sue, and Mary for saving our kitties' lives!
Margaret S. : The woman that runs this rescue is an angel. Called me quickly after receiving my email to help a sweet cat. She took him in quickly and has offered to help me with a few other homeless kitties.
