Catland Javea - 6 Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions about Catland

The construction of Catland is well underway. Provided we raise the funds needed, the shelter will be opening soon. We’ve made a list of six frequently asked questions to bring you up to speed. Should you have another question about Catland, please do not hesitate to contact us. We would love to hear from you!

  • When will the shelter be open to receive cats?

    The construction to date is at 70% completion. Once the architects give their rubber stamp, it will require volunteers to make the shelter into a beautiful warm environment for the cats. We will continue the build while we raise funds for completion. A realistic timing is the first quarter of 2023, provided we secure the funds needed.

  • Is Catland being funded by the local government?

    The answer is NO. Catland is an independent non-profit organisation that relies on the generosity of the public by way of sponsors, donations, and fundraising events. Without public funding, we will not be able to open and operate.

  • What is the maximum number of cats in the shelter?

    This will depend on the zoological license however we estimate between 100 to 120 cats at full capacity.

  • What types of cats will be suitable for the shelter?

    It would be cruel to place a feral cat in a shelter. Not all cats wish to have human contact. Catland will accept street/abandoned cats that are suitable for rehoming. We will look for loving families within Spain and via our trusted partners abroad.

    Feral cats that are in danger will be released into the area surrounding the shelter. Of course only after having been medically checked and quarantined. They will live in freedom but with shelter, food, and veterinary attention when required.

  • Who will care for the cats?

    The shelter will be solely run by dedicated volunteers. We require passionate team members to care for our cats. If you would like to be part of our team, we will be happy to take your details today. The work will be hard but rewarding.

  • How can I help

    There are many ways to help our cats. Catland can only exist with help of the local community. We need shelter staff, cat cuddlers, foster families, and donors to name a few examples. Please visit the following pages on our site for more information about how you can help:
