About Kindness for Cats, Inc.
Kindness For Cats, Inc. is a small 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded by Cindy Patton, foster parent and volunteer, in 2008. KFCI's mission is to provide temporary, nurturing homes for homeless kittens and cats and to find them loving forever homes. We work closely with Orange County Animal Services (OCAS), volunteering in their foster program; the majority of the kittens and cats in our care are foster animals in the OCAS program. The high number of euthanizations, deaths from illness or injury and comparatively low number of adoptions through the OCAS facility prompted the forming of this nonprofit in the hopes of increasing visibility for the kittens and cats available for adoption.
It is also our mission to educate the public regarding abandoned pet overpopulation and to promote spaying and neutering to help fight the battle against unwanted felines. Related to this is to increase awareness of the tragedies that occur at local animal shelters, specifically the high rate of euthanizations and of death due to illnesses contracted while at the shelter. Due to the above, we strongly encourage individuals to seek other means when faced with giving up their pet, or when finding a stray or abandoned pet.
