We Do It For The Animals And Our Island Home:

On the island of O'ahu, thousands of cats are abandoned by relocating families, lost, or born into an environment devoid of kindly human contact. They are faced with starvation, disease, predation, and acts of terrible cruelty. CatFriends believes no living creature should be subject to such a life, and strives to prevent the birth of feral felines while doing our very best to ensure, with the help of dedicated volunteers, the health and safety of those colonies already in existence.

Through active trap, neuter, return & manage (TNRM), CatFriends helps protect public health while humanely reducing the numbers of feral cats on O'ahu. Our education outreach supports the spay/neuter of all pets, as well as a lifelong commitment to them. This, in turn, reduces the primary source of feral cats, abandoned or lost unsterilized felines whose progeny are born into a feral life.

Our Mission:

To humanely decrease the abandoned and feral cat population through the widely-accepted Trap, Neuter, Return, and Manage (TNRM) methodology. This approach returns neutered cats to where they were trapped under human caretaker supervision and care while ensuring they are not producing unwanted litters.

CatFriends will assist and educate residential, business, government, and military communities in responsible and humane cat caretaking.

We also promote adoption and foster care.
