URGENT! Our shelter is in crisis. The increase in dogs and cats has skyrocketed expenses. Public aid only covers 11% of the annual costs, and private donations are not enough. Our facilities are collapsing, and the animals are stressed. We owe over 10,000 euros to veterinarians, and the bills keep increasing. In May alone, we received 37 dogs. PLEASE, HELP US (donate, become a member, volunteer, or foster)

Atenea was one of several cats who was found in a breeding house in Alcañiz, where she was used to produce kittens to be sold. The conditions in which she and many other cats were found in were appalling. They were in small cages where they could barely move and they were covered in faeces and urine. On arrival at the shelter, Atenea was heavily pregnant and had 4 kittens at the shelter whom have all now been rehomed.

Because of Atenea’s extrememly horrible start in life, she is fearful of humans. Used solely for breeding, she has never experienced love and affection. You can put food down in front of her and gently touch her, but she is extremely nervous and distrustful. She does get on well with the other cats in the area and cuddles up with them every night to sleep.

Atenea needs someone who can give her space and time, someone patient who will slowly gain her trust, and provide her with a warm, loving and safe home. She really deserves to find someone who proves her there are still good people out there who she can trust.
