Spay & Neuter Project Curacao
The stray cat problem on Curaçao is big. It’s huge! Perhaps invisible to many, but the suffering is enormous. The overpopulation in residential areas and in resorts causes sick cats, malnourished kittens, cats hit by cars and the dumping of these animals.
Since cats are able to survive without people and because they often hide in the bushes or come out of their hiding place around dusk, most people do not experience this as a problem.
But the reality is different; we can tell this, among other things, because of the number of cats and kittens that are delivered at or found by shelters.
Miriam Bleeker from Kitten Rescue Curacao “I receive requests for help from people and resorts on a daily basis. It varies from an explosive increase of cats on location to kittens who are dumped or their mothers are lost due to an accident or illness. It is poignant and yet not many people know about it”.
Only by means of many spay and neuter projects this distressing situation can be tackled. This October Wings for Animals is organizing a spay and neuter project on Curacao like last year. Together with our ambassador and veterinarian Piet Hellemans and veterinarian Jolanda van den Broek, we leave for Curacao on October 11th. The airline tickets are for our personal account, but we need money for the number of operations. Spaying/neutering a cat costs about € 20,-. Please help us so that we can help as many cats as possible.
