We catch feral cats and transport them to the veterinary surgery where they are neutered before being returned to the area where they were found.  The cats are also blood tested for Feline Aids and Feline Leukaemia because both diseases are easily transferred between cats and whole colonies can be infected very quickly.  Any cats who test positive for these diseases are humanely euthanised.  This can be very sad because the cats sometimes show no symptoms of illness but it is the only way to stop these unpleasant diseases from spreading and affecting the rest of the feline community.

Between August 2009 and December 2016, we have captured and neutered 2702 cats.

All feral cats that are neutered have a small amount taken from the top of their left ear so that, at any time, it can be seen straight away whether a cat has been neutered.  


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
