Breeders' Assistance Program
CFA has developed a program for owners of catteries who find themselves overwhelmed for various reasons. The program aims to
help and support breeders, who find themselves in an out-of-control situation, by making assistance available through other
breeders. Help and support will be provided upon request. Reasons for a request for help include:
- Number of cats are beyond care capacity
- New legislation in the area affects the number of cats
- Disability, either temporary or permanent
- Loss of home or housing
- Unforeseen change in personal family situation
- Temporary financial hardship
- Death, without provision for the animals
- Acts of nature
- Normal retirement
The Breeder Assistance Program is able to help with advice, food, physical assistance, and placement of
cats, if requested. IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN ANY SITUATION WHERE HELP IS NEEDED, please email CFAAnimalWelfare@aol.com.
All emails received will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
The Food Pantry
The Food Pantry is a project that started in the CFA Midwest Region because, as they moved forward with the
Breeder Assistance Program, they discovered a need for pet food. Some people had lost their jobs and could no longer afford
sufficient food; others had emergencies, such as a fire. The Food Pantry was developed to fulfill this need.
With the generous
assistance of Royal Canin, who donates their overstock to the Food Pantry, this program has now been elevated to operate on a
national level. Royal Canin, and the Food Pantry, also donate large quantities of food to shelters and rescue groups.
know of a shelter/rescue that could benefit from a donation of pet food, please forward the group information to
