We have had great good luck on this list adopting out FELV+ cats to
individual adopters.   Emily adopted Tofu and she is immaculately cared for
and in the best situation of all, a real home and not a sanctuary.

BFAS, much as I hate them, has openings at times for FELV cats.  They do
keep the cats in good condition but I disagree vehemently with their
practices and would not send my worst enemy there, let alone a cat!

"And it is the most divisive incivility to tell true animal lovers they
can’t complain about it, that they can’t fight for the animals, that they
should sit down and shut up and allow the killing to continue."
