Animal Care Malta is an officially registered non-profit voluntary organisation and a licensed cat sanctuary, dedicated to the welfare of the many stray cats in Santa Marija Estate, Mellieha, a town in the north of Malta.
We are feeding and taking care of about 280 cats daily.
Our priority is to take care of the cats in our (private) sanctuary and the cats in the colonies we’re feeding.
There are 99 cats living in our sanctuary and we’re feeding approximately 180-200 cats in colonies/feeding places.
All the cats in our sanctuary have a story: most of them were found abandoned when they were tiny kittens; a lot of them were bottle fed, some of them from the day they were born.
Others were saved from dangerous places and/or they were sick or handicapped.
We always try to find good homes for them but we take homing very seriously and it's very difficult to find homes where they will be safe (no possibility to escape) and will be loved forever so almost all of them are staying here forever, where they are safe and loved....
Once they got used to our environment, we don't re-home them as we only want to see them happy and we don't want to expose them to another trauma.
This means that we're full up right now and we won't take in any more cats to safeguard the well being of the cats who are living here.
Our residents (and our colony cats) rely on your support so please donate!
