MRFRS was founded in 1992 in response to the homeless cat population in northeastern Massachusetts. To help these cats, our volunteers pioneered a TNR and feeding station program that became a model of success. In 2003 we opened our cageless adoption center. In 2008 and 2012 we launched mobile spay/neuter clinics to reach underserved areas. In 2013, we will assist more than 14,000 cats and kittens from over 120 communities.
