"Helping the Helpless"

There are so many unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens in our Community and its our aim to  de-sex all of our Community/stray cats  in the hope that  one day all cats are cared for in a loving home. Education of the community, particularly the young is paramount, with regard to its responsibility and care of it’s  cats. This issue is not a “Cat Problem” but a “People Problem”.
