Furry Friends is a 100% volunteer based (NO paid employees) NO-KILL cat and kitten shelter in Barrie, Ontario. We have over 300 cats and kittens in our care, either at the shelter, or in our network of caring foster homes. We provide sanctuary, food, and veterinary care to our cats and kittens, with the aim to get them all into loving homes. The reality is that this just won't happen, and many of our cats have spent almost their entire lives in our shelter. If you can't adopt, please consider a donation. We are totally dependant on donations and our own fundraising efforts to keep our shelter going.

Please come visit us and help us give one more cat a chance at life outside of the shelter. Our website is:

*We have no trained adoption volunteers on our 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. evening shifts on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, though we welcome anyone who wants to drop-in to drop-off donations for the kitties!
There are many cats and kittens to choose from. You can select a furry friend that is perfect for you. There are loveable cats and kittens of every age, colour, size, and length of fur. Some of the animals have special needs. Caring for these animals can be especially rewarding.
Important things to consider!
Adopting an animal is an important decision. Caring for an animal requires a long-term commitment. Here are some things to think about before adopting a furry friend:

• Do you have the budget for food, litter, ongoing vaccinations and any necessary medical treatments?
• Do you have time at home to interact with your pet?
• Do you have other animals at home?
• Do you have babies or small children at home?
• Do you have permission from your landlord?
• Furry Friends' policy is not to declaw. For more information on declawing click this link.
• Kitten Considerations
Furry Friends will adopt kittens under 6 months of age to families who already have a cat or kitten at home OR are willing to adopt a companion cat or kitten at the same time. We do this to avoid "single kitten syndrome" and to ensure that the young kitten develops into a well socialized cat.
Furry Friends will not adopt a kitten under 6 months of age to a family with children who are under 5 years of age. We believe that living with a cat can be beneficial to children and that cats can enhance children's self esteem, teach them responsibility and help them learn empathy. We also know that safety and rough play can be concerns for both the kitten and the child.
