OBJECTIVES (from our Constitution)

This organization is formed for charitable and educational purposes as relates to domestic felines to be achieved by:

1. The holding of shows to promote interest in and knowledge of cats to the general public and the providing of educational programs and materials therein, with proceeds over and above expenses to be used for other charitable purposes such as follows:

a. To promote social welfare by giving support, through activities and donations to shelters, for the care of homeless and abandoned animals (cats) so as to reduce the number of feral animals in the populated areas of our communities.

b. To encourage and donate to early spay-neuter programs for cats inappropriate to breeding.

c. To donate to tax exempt organizations (such as the Winn Foundation) to promote the research of feline diseases.

2. To encourage the breeding to standard of the pedigreed cat.

3. To advance, in every way possible, the interests of breeders and exhibitors and to promote the welfare of all cats.

Our Club, also known as NHFF, is a not-for-profit, application pending 501(c)(4) organization affiliated with the Cat Fanciers’ Association, Inc. (aka CFA). Formed in 1972, we are one of the older CFA cat clubs in New England and the CFA North Atlantic Region

Since 1990, NHFF has donated -- including becoming a Winn Feline Foundation Sustaining Donor -- to not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organizations supporting the welfare of domestic felines or promoting the research of feline diseases. NHFF has also donated booth space at our cat shows to some of those organizations. For more information, see those organizations in Resources below.
