Adoptions

Prior to adopting a cat from our foundation we would like to get to know you better. Please see it from our perspective. Rescuing cats involves a lot of time, emotions, not to mention expense. It is our responsibility to ensure the best possible match between the potential adopting family and our cats accounting for their safety and level of care.

Cats in Wroclaw

The population of feral cats in Wroclaw is estimated for 40 000 animals (according to Wroclaw Animal Shelter). Lucky enough for them there are some wonderful people in town, who love animals and take care of the street cats too. Most of them have been doing this for years. We call them officially Voluntary Cat Carers.

They feed, trap and neuter the cats. Unfortunately the reality is still bad and their life is not easy. They often become victims of aggression: from people who don’t like cats, buildings administrators, owners of the land.

Find out about Voluntary Cat Carers rights.
