About Us

In the U.S., four million animals are euthanized in our shelters each year.  Friends for Rescue and Pet Care, Inc. was founded by a group of animal lovers concerned about pet overpopulation in Delaware.  We are a Non-Profit, 501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt organization dedicated to Reducing Companion Animal Overpopulation and Improving their Welfare

 Help Us Stop Pet Overpopulation

Please donate today to help us continue our work. We need YOUR help to prevent needless births of unwanted cats and dogs.

We participate in the United Way of Delaware’s Write-In program, allowing us to receive donations through the United Way. To designate your donation to us, you can write our book/code number (9522) on your workplace pledge form.

If your Non-Profit Organization would like to request spay/neuter funds, please Download our Grant Application form here. We regret we cannot provide funds for individuals.

Also, If you would like to transition from being an independent cat saver to being a Non-Profit and Tax-Exempt Cat Rescue Organization, please email the President of FRPC ( president@delawarespayneuter.info ). We would like to generate a Rescue in every town and crossroads in Delaware!


Mission Statement

We exist to promote the concepts of the No-Kill philosophy, and to support No-Kill related activities, such as these:

  • Reduce companion animal overpopulation through education and support of spay/neuter initiatives, including:
    • Trap/Neuter/Return (T/N/R) programs for feral cats
    • Pediatric Sterilization of kittens and puppies prior to adoption
    • High-Quality/High-Volume/Low-Cost Spay/Neuter (HQHVSN) clinics, as exemplified by The Humane Alliance in Asheville, North Carolina.
  • Encourage and promote pro-active pet ownership and humane treatment of companion animals, to help reduce the surrender rate of companion animals to Shelters, Rescues, and Private Veterinarians.
  • Encourage and promote adoption from Rescues and Shelters, and support fostering programs.
  • As fundraising allows, support family financial hardships with food, litter, vaccinations, and medical care, to help reduce the surrender rate to Shelters, Rescues, and Private Veterinarians.
  • Engage in other activities related to improving the welfare of companion animals.
