There are many stray cats in Serbia and they live in extremely bad conditions. The problem begins with irresponsible owners who don’t spay and neuter their pets and then they throw out their offspring to the street. Many kittens end up in plastic bags right after being born, they drown, get killed by stray dogs, tortured by kids and poisoned by people.
Adult cats often get thrown out as well. All of a sudden they find themselves on scary streets, without their families, without shelter, food or water – terrified and confused. Many get killed soon after. For those who remain this is only the beginning of their agony of trying to survive. In these photos you can see cold and filthy basements where they give birth, sleep, and die in terrible conditions. Because of the extremely bad conditions they live in, the health of many is threatened. No living thing deserves such a life.
My goal is to spay as many cats as possible, limit breeding, decrease the number of newly born kittens and diminish the suffering of their mothers.
However, I cannot do this alone because there are so many of them. The help is needed with paying for the surgeries, fostering, parasite treatments, buying the food, litter and transportation.
The plan is to catch cats and, after adequate preparation take them into surgery. They would then go to a foster family where they would be able to recover. After that we would try to find them a forever home. If they would have to go back to the place where they had lived, their lives would definitely be easier. They wouldn’t mate, or fight with other males, their offspring wouldn’t get killed by dogs, or hit by cars. They would have food and clean water. They would be regularly treated against parasites. And if they got sick they would be taken to a veterinarian.
As for the other male cats and kittens who need at least two meals a day, we also need:
Medication against parasites
Medications for the sick ones
They are many and caring for them costs a lot of money. So, cat lovers, please help!
Your small contribution will mean the world to them.
