    Great facility! the only issue I have seen is they estimated the age of my friend's cat at 3 yrs and the vet said the cat was closer to 10 years!


    No kill facility

    Friends of Cats, or FOC, is a very nice humble place. All the cats seem to be happy. They are treated well and LOVE when they are visited. No doubt that this is one of the top shelters i have visited. Every time i go into the shelter i am greeted kindly by not only the caring staff but by the adorable cats. It is a very nice gentle and caring place. There is no doubt in my mind that the cats love it there, although they would also love a family and house.


    Wonderful staff, Cats are kept healthy, living conditions are awesome,


    gets a little dirty, cant leave without fur on your clothes

    Friends of Cats is a great organization, I myself have volunteered there before. The cats are free to roam around the place and is a perfect place to volunteer for someone who loves cats! There is a wide variety of cats, each with their own personality. They are a fabulous organization that does not take part in the slaying of the cats. They have a wonderful history in San Diego and are a helpful company. Friends of Cats is awesome!


    Knowledgeable staff, friendly, homey headquarters!

    All of the cats there are happy, and very nice. They enjoy the company of people, and love it wen people come in to pet them. If there is one that is known to bit the staff will warn you so you dont react.\nIt is a great place to spend time getting over-loved by cats!


    the staff is nice, and knowledgable the cats are happy
