Holiday Hacks for Helping Cats

We know…working through that lengthy gift list can turn the holidays into a hassle. Why add to your stress level…here are a number of quick and convenient ways you can delight the cat lover in your life and make a difference for cats at the same time.

Buy the MRFRS Calendar

It’s just $15 and makes a great stocking stuffer.  Your lucky recipient will be treated to 12 months of adorableness. You can order online here, or pick one up at our adoption center on Elm Street or the following locations.

Use iGive or Amazon Smile when you shop online

Buy a gift…get a donation…it’s a win-win! Use either of these services when you shop online, designate MRFRS as your preferred charity and a portion of your purchase amount automatically comes to us. You’d be surprised how quickly those small amounts add up to help our kitties.

“Virtually” Adopt a FeLeuk Cat

Give the gift of sponsorship of one our Feline Leukemia cats. Your recipient will become a member of our FeLeuk Fan Club, and get a card and periodic updates from our neediest cats. Get all of the info here.

Gift a MAC license plate

The “I’m Animal Friendly” license plate supports several important programs in Massachusetts that directly benefit our furry friends. Head over to, and check out how you can give the plate as a holiday gift. It really is the gift that keeps on giving.

Of course, you can make a direct donation to MRFRS in honor of your family or friend and we’ll send an acknowledgement and photo of one of our cats. We hope you find these ideas helpful and time-saving…and more fun than driving in circles around the mall parking lot!
