Be Our Eyes & Ears !
As part of our policy we remove the tip of the left ear on all the cats we sterilise, this is done while the cats are under anaesthetic and causes no pain or discomfort to the cat. We have to do this to avoid catching them again and again, which would cause them unnecessary stress & trauma.
It always helps us to know how the homeless cats are doing, so any information you could provide us with would be useful. If you notice any sick or injured cats or cats that have not been sterilised (these will still have both ear tips) please let us know. We need details like:
- Location of the cat (i.e.around apartment No. 200 of The Sunrise Hotel, Caleta)
- What colour is the cat
- What time of day you saw the cat & how often
- What is wrong with the cat or maybe it just needs sterilising
We will do our best to follow up on the information you give us.
Do you live in Fuerteventura - can you help?
We are always looking for volunteers, here are just a few of the things we need.
Foster homes - we have many cats that need a safe and caring environment while they are getting better or waiting for a new home. How long it needs to be fostered for depends on its health and rehoming needs. We would provide all the equipment needed and cover all the expenses including vet bills.
Cat Cafés - Could you spare sometime each week to help us clean & provide food at a cat café. Even just 1 hour a week would make all the difference to the cats.
Market Stall - We would love to have a weekly or monthly stall in one of the local markets but need someone willing to help with this. This would be a good opportunity for us to promote the needs of the local strays and the work we do, plus hopefully it could raise a little in donations. If you have a car and some spare time, please get in touch with us.
Picking up a sick or injured cat - Would you be able to go out and catch (or pick up, if friendly) a sick or injured cat. When we get a call about a cat in need of the vets it can be heartbreaking if we don't have anyone able to do it. We need help from people that have a car and would be prepared to do this.
Do you have an apartment, house or villa we could use for 1 week during one of our bi-annual campaigns. We need accommodation for the volunteer veterinary team.
