Payson Friends of Ferals is an arm of Payson Humane Society in Payson Arizona. Payson is a small city in central Az. With a population of about 17,000 in town with quite a few surrounding rural communties.
We established PFF in 2005. Payson is still a very “wild west” sort of town and educating people on the TNR method of humanely and successfully controling the numbers of these “unwanted” cats was no easy task and still is a battle fought each day. But slowly but surely through hard work and dedication we have begun to change the tide. We have put over 1500 cats through our program and are beginning to reduce the numbers entering our small worn out facility. We have managed to adopt out many cats that had been through the TNR program but are domesticated.
We work to domesticate. And we have dramatically reduced the numbers of healthy, beautiful ferals who are brought in to be euthanized simply because they are feral and belong to no human. If you would like to learn more about our program you can see us at:
