Spaying van for feline colonies and shelter animals
Our main focus is to reduce the population of stray cats living on the streets. A great amount of them die by poisoning or run over by cars. We also spay shelter animals.
In May 2013 we launch the very first sterilization mobil unit for abandoned animals in Spain.
We travel from village to village with our team on board showing communities all the benefits of spaying stray cats and how important it is, reducing the population considerately. This involves big effort and organisation: to obtain permission from the Town Halls, to install all the equipments on site, to train volunteers to catch the cats, etc..
To make this happen we constantly need to invest a lot of money in fuel, trap cages, boxers, medication, surgery material, vet costs etc.
Before coming to a town with our spaying van we inform the citizens and the ones who take care of the colonies about our work. That is very important otherwise the system does not work.
The cats are being spayed as if they were a human being. Since we are all mammals they get the same treatment as we would get. This is very important for us. Since this stray cats probably will never ever enter a trap. This is why our operating team works absolute aseptic i order to avoid any kind of complication during or after the operation.
Thanks to animal friends who donated for the trailer finally it is in use. It took quite some time for the trailer to be manufactured on the mainland but we are now glad to have a small refugium for the cats before and after they are being spayed.
