FOSTERING & ADOPTION

Care 4 Cats is not a re-homing charity but we do have to rescue vulnerable cats and kittens from dangerous situations, for fostering and eventually adoption.

Background

A LITTLE BACKGROUND

Care_4_Cats-1-of-1-18Newly born kittens are regularly dumped on volunteers’ doorsteps or in rubbish bins, and sometimes their mum is left too.We save many from poisoning when tipped off, and either move them to different colonies in the hope that they’re accepted, or take them to our small network of fosterers if they need care and attention.We vaccinate them as soon as we can and tame them. We give them the love, support, affection, food and shelter they need, and medical treatment if necessary, before finding them a loving forever home.

We are passionate about neutering & protecting Ibiza’s cats. You can adopt a cat from Care 4 Cats Ibiza (or Sa Coma) to either stay on the island or go to a new home abroad.

Care_4_Cats-1-of-1-15For a €30 donation your kitten will have been vaccinated and treated for fleas and worms. If 6 months or older your cat will also be sterilized and the donation is €50. Considering these treatments can cost up to €200 privately, not only are you saving one of Ibiza’s cats, you’re saving some cash whilst protecting him/her.

Adoption Criteria

CRITERIA FOR ADOPTION

We advertise for a flight companion to carry your new family member on a flight to your country where you will meet them at the airport.

Do you adopt to people living in rented accommodation?

Yes, providing your rental contract allows for pets.

Do you adopt to families with another animal?

Yes, we make it a point to raise our foster kittens in a social environment that includes dogs and cats, animal lovers rarely have just one pet :).

Do you adopt to families with small children?

Yes, but it depends on the cat… some are more suited to life with small children and we want to make sure the cat in question is a good fit. We will also have a pre adoption meeting to see how the child or children interact with the cat.

Do you adopt to people living in a flat or who have no garden/outside access?

Yes, but is decided on a cat by cat basis taking their history and background into consideration and making sure the environment is suitable for the specific cat. We also have special needs cats that require an indoor only environment.

I work full/part-time will this affect my chances of adopting?

It will depend on the cat you wish to adopt, whether or not they have a buddy to keep them company while you are away as well as the social needs of the cat in question.

What if I can’t cope with my new arrival?

We ask that you return the cat or kitten to it’s foster home.

Is there someone I can contact if I need any help or advice?

Care 4 Cats is always just a phone call, email, or facebook message away and we are happy to help in any way we can.
