    What does your money do?



    Veterinary costs take up the vast majority of the money that we collect in donations. The two vets we use in Javea La Nao and Animalets keep the cost of the operations and blood tests as low as possible, it nevertheless costs a great deal of money to treat the number of cats we deal with.

    Once a cat has been caught in one of our automatic traps, it is transferred from this to a cage called a “restrainer” cage.  This is not nearly as bad as it sounds but enables the vet to immobilise the cat so that a sedative injection can be given.

    At no time during the trapping and transferring is the cat actually handled as they obviously are very frightened at this stage and can, and do, go a bit wild!   Once the cat has been anaesthetised, it is spayed (female) or castrated (male).  Castrating a male cat does not involve invasive surgery,  unlike a spaying operation on a female.  The female cat will be left with a wound on her abdomen just a few centimetres long and with stitches that will dissolve without any other veterinary intervention.

    After the operation, the cat is returned to a cage and put in a quiet place to recover.  If possible, the cats are kept in a warm, quiet place overnight before being returned to where they were caught.  Whenever we can, depending on volunteers, female cats are kept confined for up to a week to enable the wound to heal before being returned to the community.

    Javea Feral Cat Association

    Our mission is to reduce the number of kittens born to feral cats in the Javea area (Spain) and to keep the feral cat population as healthy as possible.

    How do we achieve our goals?

    We are a group of volunteers in the Javea area, Costa Blanca, Spain operating a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programme.

    Whenever we come across cats or kittens that we think will make good house pets, we advertise them for adoption, having first made sure that they are vaccinated, blood tested and neutered. All of this is paid for by the association but we do ask for a donation for our veterinary fund as this is the only way that we can continue our work.

    We are always willing to give help and advice to first-time cat owners or, indeed, to any cat owner who has a problem.

    In case you wondered: Yes, we could use your help in the form of a donation or voluntary work. :)

    Our Charity is registered under no. CV-01-044866-A C.I.F. G54439013
