One woman’s fight to save Israel’s Cats

Katzenworld

Hi everyone,

Today we have an important shout-out to make for one of our valued readers who also happens to be a huge animal advocate! Riva’s vision is to save the cats of Israel and has joined the charity Let The Animals Live for whom she works as the Director of the TNR and Cats’ matters.

Background

Israel is in a state of tremendous feline overpopulation, which means that there are many more cats that are being born than adopting homes and places for them to live.

Each and every day tens of thousands of cats are born in Israel, that only live short lives full of severe suffering from disease, hunger and abuse. This situation causes mortality and severe suffering for the cats and a burden (emotional, physical and financial) on those who love them.

  1. What a story! I am really happy to hear that something is happening, the idea is great and I hope that it will work. I didn’t know that the situation of cats is so terrible in Israel, ans I am sure that dogs there need help, too. When I lived there, there were everywhere dogs living outside trying to find food. It was so sad to see them wandering in groups, people just kicking them.

    1. I did not know about this until I read that blog, either. When we lived in Panama, there were many feral cats and dogs, so a spay/neuter clinic was begun. One day per month, everyone would take all the captured (and sometimes pets) to the clinic – a lot of people volunteered to help, and if they could not deal with the actual surgery, they could help scheduling on watching the animals as they came out from anesthesia. By the time we moved back to that States (5 years later) there was a noticeable decrease in ferals.
