I am a Sri Lankan woman who is working in Israel as a care giver. What I want to ask is if there is a way to give my cats for adoption. I cannot see them suffering.
Before they were living with me, I had an apartment and I was taking care of them. They were so lovely and I was keeping them clean every week. I gave them shower. They slept on my bed or I arranged a place for them to sleep but unfortunately I lost the apartment with everything I had bought: lot of books, clothes, gifts for my family, 7 boxes of things to send to Sri Lanka.
The landlord, because of the electricity bill, he did not give me anything. He gave the apartment to someone else and they stole my things. Now I am living somewhere.
I was very sad and depressed but still my cats are roaming around the house they think that is their house. One day I saw the man who is living in that house took a stone to hit my cats and some times they throw out water at them. You know how I feel.
I feel so sad. Actually, I found something that human does not have faith fullness every day. I go there. I call them when they come. I give food and water. I feel happy instead of spreading hatred. It is so nice to love animals and to help them to survive but I need them to have a safe place and a good house and not on the street. If somebody can help me out I would be so glad.
Hi, I don’t know your name. You wrote a comment and I have made it this article because I think it is important. I have visited Israel. I saw lots of feral and stray cats there. There are more community cats (stray and feral cats) than normal, probably, because the weather is warm.
Israelis, in general, are OK with cats. I say that because declawing cats is banned in Israel. However, some people dislike cats. It seems you have been treated badly and so have your cats. This is upsetting to someone like me.
I will guess that rehoming your cats will be very, very difficult. Not many people are like you. You care. Most people do not care about cats as you do.
The page you made the comment on had a good number of suggestions. You should try and contact them. In addition, I have used Google maps to search for “animal shelters, Israel”. Google came up with three. Dogs seem to be more important. However, I would contact them anyway. You can and see if they can help or if someone they know can help.
I would expect there to be some private cat shelters and sanctuaries in Israel. They may be able to help but there may be a feral and stray cat problem which means they have no facilities to help at the moment.
I have found what I believe is a veterinary surgery. This is the link. Please click on it:
They may be able to direct you to a cat or animal shelter. Try and start in this way and see where it leads to. The way to do it is to start somewhere, then keep following the help you get until you arrive at what you want and your cats’ need.
Finally, please click on this link to see the results of a search on PoC of animal rescue organisations in Israel
Good luck. If you have time, please leave a comment.
