Furget Me Not is a no-kill, volunteer driven rescue organization based in Edmonton, Alberta. We are dedicated to giving cats and kittens from local pounds, where they are at high risk of euthanasia, a chance for the rest of their lives to be the best of their lives.
We place cats in loving and nurturing foster homes while they wait for their perfect forever family. Through our network of supporters & volunteers, we are able to maximize the use of every dollar donated by keeping our administrative costs low, and by providing medical care in home when possible. All our cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption.
Our goal is to adopt our cats into loving and responsible permanent homes, where they will thrive and be loving companions. We will continue to be a resource after the adoption process is complete, and encourage our adopters to stay in touch and share their stories.
The Furget Me Not family and the kitties in our care look forward to meeting you soon!
I can’t remember a time I didn’t love animals with my whole heart. As a child I would sneak out of the house to feed the stray cats behind my grandparents home. My family started fostering kittens for the Toronto Humane Society when I was just 8 years old, and it’s been my greatest passion ever since.
Over the past 17 years I’ve been fortunate to work with animal rescue agencies in Ontario, Alberta, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Jamaica. I’ve been a foster parent, adoptions coordinator, shelter volunteer and facilitated the foster and animal behaviour programs for local Humane Societies. No matter where I’ve gone there’s been one common theme – there are always more animals in need than capacity to help them.
With the support of my friends and loved ones I’ve been able to fulfil my dream of giving cats and kittens in need full tummies, clean water, veterinary care and a second chance to find a forever home and family of their own.
For every 1 who is adopted, 5 more need us. But with the help of our foster families, generous donors and volunteers, in the words of Loren Eiseley –
“Every time you save one, another one returns! You can't save them all, so why bother trying? Why does it matter anyway?'”
“Well, it mattered to that one.”
