FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - EB Feline Rehoming, also known as the Emilie Beard Foundation for Felines, is a nonprofit organization that works to rescue stray, abandoned or surrendered kittens, and sometimes adult cats.
EB Feline became a 501(c) (3) in 2014.
Although they do not have a physical shelter, the kittens they find are cared for in foster homes.
Through volunteer efforts, this helps the kittens until they find a permanent home.
The organization holds events two times a month at the Petco located at 315 Coliseum Blvd. in Fort Wayne where kittens can be adopted.
The kittens they have available are spayed, neutered, microchipped, and have all of their first year shots before they are available for adoption.
For the at-risk kittens, EB Feline Rehoming created what they call a Guardian Angel Fund which helps with medical expenses for kittens.
This year in July, they received a $8,500 grant by the Petco Foundation.
That grant money went toward helping the staff which is made up of entirely volunteers, health needs, and educational programs to reduce the population of unwanted, homeless, or abandoned cats in the community.
