About this Pet Shelter
Pets/Friends for Life (PFFL) is a non profit charity that cares for stray, abandoned, surrendered and abused cats and kittens in St. Thomas, Ontario.
Our mission focuses on three major areas: spaying, neutering and vaccinations to facilitate adoptions; and public education to promote responsible pet ownership.
PFFL is located in a 100 year old renovated warehouse in downtown St. Thomas. The building layout consists of a series of rooms in which cats roam about freely. The only cages are in the sick room where injured animals can be be confined and treated without being disturbed by other animals.
At PFFL, we try to create as much of a home like atmosphere as possible. Much of our volunteers time is focused on petting and playing with the cats. This socialization helps alleviate fear of humans, reduces stress for the cats in the shelter and helps adopted animals make a better transition to their forever homes.
Since its establishment in 2000, our shelter has had a no kill policy. PFFL provides a safe home for cats until they are adopted.
We are open 12-4 daily except Sundays or please call to arrange for an appointment outside these hours.
