Kattenvoeding inzamelactie bij Tom&Co Kessel-Lo 27 en 28 mei

Vrijdag en zaterdag 27 en 28 mei zamelen we weer kattenvoeding in bij de Tom&Co Kessel-Lo.

Deze inzamelingen zijn broodnodig voor de 200 zwerfkatjes die we dagelijks voederen in opdracht van de Stad Leuven. Als u soms denkt, ik wil hen wel helpen maar hoe dan? Ik heb geen tijd voor vrijwilligerswerk… Wel, zo geeft u ons een gigantische duw in de rug. We zijn er vrijdag en zaterdag een volledige dag. En onze vrijwilligers hebben er keiveel zin in!!!!!!!!

About Zwerfkat in Le(u)ven

Zwerfkat in Le(u)ven was founded in 2014. Since then we have rescued more than 2000 cats from street life in Leuven. Through your contributions you support 100% of the hard work of our volunteers.

Make a difference! The purchase of vaccines, baby formula for our kittens, sterilization of our mummy cats, veterinary costs for the cure of sick animals. You name it. It costs a lot of money and we need your support more than ever.

Our Operation

Trap Neuter Return

Stray cats are caught, returned sterile to the trap location and provided with food and shelter. We have a no-kill policy.

Looking for a new home

No shelter, but socialization by foster families in order to find the ideal furrever home.

Helping animals in need

Injured or sick cats, kittens that are no longer nursed and/or are about to walk are immediately helped.
