Vets for Abandoned Pets (VFAP) was founded in 2012 to expand the impact of local TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) efforts. Kittens too young for spay/neuter would end up being released back outside on the hot Las Vegas streets, where life is always a struggle.
Friendly cats and kittens who would make wonderful pets were also being released, having no where else to go. The solution was to create a network of volunteers who could help provide medical treatment and temporary foster homes for these cats and kittens. Local veterinary offices provided space for adoptions and thus VFAP was born.
Over the years, VFAP has grown and our volunteers have worked tirelessly to find loving forever homes for over 3,000 cats and kittens. In addition to working with local TNR groups, VFAP is partnered with Heaven Can Wait, Las Vegas’s largest non-profit spay and neuter foundation.
We also pull cats and kittens at risk of being euthanized from local shelters and provide them with the medical treatment they need to be healthy and happy.
To further expand our outreach program, we have opened up our own cat and kitten adoption center, located at 4601 North Rancho Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89130. In just a few short months, we have adopted out over 100 previously-homeless cats.
VFAP continues to be 100% volunteer-based and runs exclusively off donations of funds, supplies and time. We are always in need of more volunteers, fosters, and donations. Please consider volunteering or donating, every dollar goes towards the well-being and adoption of a cat in our care.
