CARE 4 CATS IBIZA
Caring for, and neutering feral / stray cats in Ibiza
according to their Trap, Neuter & Return program

care4cats is an English charity, founded by animal lover
Angela Collins in 1999. Her aim: to care for and humanely reduce
the number of stray cats in Ibiza.

The thousands of abandoned, stray & feral cats of Ibiza experience great difficulty surviving, but still the cat population in Ibiza grows tremendously every year. There is no help for them from the government.
Many cats die a slow and painful death from starvation, disease or poisoning.
Kittens are born simply to die. Sadly, there are very few people who care about their piteous and desperate existence.

Luckily, Care4Cats have a dedicated team of people who care.
Twice a year, voluntary trapping teams visit from the UK. In each visit they trap around 400 stray cats. The cats are taken to one of 4 collaborating veterinary clinics. They are given a health check, any necessary medical care and of course the very important neutering!
When each cat is neutered, the vet makes a small cut to one ear, to prevent the cat from being trapped again.
After spending a night in the clinic to recover, the cat is returned to the place it came from.
There is now a small team of volunteers who live in Ibiza, working year round to help the island’s strays and encouraging residents to neuter their pets.

On Ibiza there are many beautiful tame cats needing homes.
If you care for cats, there are many beautiful tame cats needing homes; would you like to adopt one of them?
There is now a 45€ Adoption Fee. Each cat homed by Care4Cats will be vaccinated and neutered.
It is much cheaper than the usual price! This ensures a healthy cat as there are so many viruses killing kittens right now plus of course, no unwanted kittens.

Animal shelters and cat shelters are overcrowded in Ibiza, and usually the poor animals are put to sleep after 3 days. Local governments are still not taking any action against the cat surplus in Ibiza, such as:
- Regular sterilization operations at a reduced rate!
- There is NO medical care for homeless, or sick animals.

* There is the possibility that the Spanish Government
on short term carries through an amendment,
which allows the police
to fine everyone who feeds feral cats !!

To date, over 15,000 cats have been trapped, neutered and returned by Care4Cats, massively reducing the number of unwanted cats on the island. Preventing the suffering and deaths of hundreds of thousands of kittens.
Statistics show that from one un-neutered female cat can result in 20,000 kittens in 4 years.
Although the vets they collaborate with work at a reduced rate, each trapping visit costs around 10,000€.
Care4Cats
is now raising funds to open their own clinic. The Eivissa Animal Centre.

Care4Cats is entirely dependant on donations !!

Ibiza volunteers Care4Cats

To have an idea of what Ibiza volunteers for Care4Cats are actually doing:

C4C volunteers in Ibiza are constantly confronted with all kinds of questions and problems that need immediate action.

The Ibiza volunteers, strongly believe that the feral cat population is an important part of the eco system in Ibiza and their TNR program is fighting hard to stop catch and kill methods or poison to control the population with a much more humane trap, neuter and return policy. Where feral cat numbers are not stabilized by neutering, the population reaches problem levels with spraying and cat faeces posing not only a nuisance, but also hygiene and health risks to humans. Calls for population reduction or wholesale extermination invariably result.

In many cases, people are willing to accept a smaller colony of healthy, neutered cats where they would not accept a large colony of starving, diseased or injured ferals and dying kittens. Neutering allows these cats a reasonable quality of life and permits them to coexist with humans without posing health risks. Not neutering all too often condemns the entire colony... healthy individuals as well as injured, malnourished and diseased cats to death.

The volunteers of Care4Cats only trap, neuter and return cats that they have been requested to do, while each person who calls signs forms, that these cats are not owned. They do not go randomly traipsing around the campo scooping up cats to sterilize.
Ever growing campo cat colonies suffer from disease, poisoning and lack of resources, nevertheless the ongoing C4C TNR program (so far neutered 15,000 cats), resulted in  fewer kittens being born and those that are will have a much better chance of survival.
While there is no evidence of cats being treated differently by their colony after sterilization... we make every effort to trap the entire colony at one time. This is not always possible but the intact cats will be the minority. To insure that they have fully recovered, after being sterilized, the cats are kept at the vets overnight for observation, before being released the next day, at the same spot they were trapped.

Care4Cats has some volunteers from the UK, who pay their own way and use their own holidays to come over and help us trap and transport cats to the local vets for sterilization and all other medical procedures without families or jobs to distract them, while they are inexhaustibly 'on the job'.
The TNR (trap, neuter & return) program goes on year round with local volunteers but C4C takes advantage of having these extra hands on deck, willing to put in 12 to 16 hour days, to trap and transport cats.
- Are you willing and able to help us trap on a regular basis? We need you, contact us !
 

C4C adoption & rehoming
C4C is frequently called out to deal with cats and kittens that have to be removed immediately.... because a person leaves the island, someone of age who can no longer care for the cats, or someone who was denounced. For lack of rehoming possibilities in Ibiza and to prevent the cats from being euthanized, C4C desperately tries to have these cats adopted abroad.
- We ask worldwide cat lovers to support us!

C4C foster homes
The C4C foster moms get these tiny babies, sometimes just a few hours old and pour themselves into keeping them alive, not always successfully. They feed every 2 to 3 hours around the clock, burp them clean their little bums, change their bedding before tucking them back into bed.
For 8 weeks they are their life.
- Could you do that and would you like to sign up as a fosterer? We need you, contact us !

If you have questions, contact us at tel: +34 616 729 808 - C4C volunteers will be happy to sit down and have a coffee and answer any questions you might have.
