Municipal Kennel Cat Sponsorship Scheme

The Municipal Kennel of Funchal is proud to announce that their cat sponsorship scheme is now live and the first cats have now been sponsored.

Most of the cats that fall under the sponsorship scheme are ill with FIV and very difficult to rehome due to their illness.  By sponsoring a cat that may never find a loving home outside the shelter, you are giving that cat a second chance.  The monies raised go towards its upkeep, food and the creation of an environment where the cat can thrive in the company of so many others like him/her, as well as provide financial assistance towards any veterinary bills.

Another way you can help is by volunteering at the shelter as both the cats and dogs under its care benefit from social interaction with humans, whether it is petting or grooming not only will you be making a difference to their daily routine, social contact will make a massive difference to the way they perceive humans.  And through this, they may be rehabilitated and rehomed – which is the ultimate goal for most of the animals that come into the shelter.

If you think you could help, either by spending time with the animals or by sponsoring a cat, please contact Anja on Tel/Whatsapp 00351 964987625.

One small act of kindness can make a massive difference to an animal in need.
