WHAT THEY DO: Providing a long-term solution to feline overpopulation in Buncombe, Henderson and Madison counties through a consistent trap-neuter-return program and low- or no-cost spay-neuter surgery at Humane Alliance. In the 13 years since its founding, Friends2Ferals/HSBC has returned about 14,000 cats to responsible care with a rabies certificate designating the person responsible for renewing the shots. Friends2Ferals/HSBC provides an FVRCP vaccine, and cats are treated for parasites and minor wounds.

To this day I am so thankful I met Nancy at Friends2Ferals because I am still using her services in Hendersonville on a regular basis. Recently, by our business, we’ve saved half a dozen cats from having more and re-homed one with a chip to her proper owner. A much-needed nonprofit that benefits so many animals and people in our area in WNC.
