You will experience the life of cats in an indoor rescue center, you will hear their stories, how are cats treated in Brașov and what is Catkeen aiming to do for them. You may play with the cats or just caress them, while drinking a coffee or tea, or you may even take them for a walk. If you fall in love with any and feel like adopting her or him, we provide adoption contract and transportation abroad. Visiting a center like this may be overwhelming if you never experienced this before. Be sure however that it will be an unique experience. Moreover, your visit and the fee you pay are of great help for the well being of cats in Brasov and will help control the number of feral cats on the streets.
I am Silvana, volunteer of Catkeen cat rescue center. I am one of the few volunteers who give their time to ease the life of some lovely but unfortunate souls dressed up in a fluffy coat. It all started with a lonely kitten on the street two years ago ... one of hundreds from the streets of the city. That kind to immediately fall in love with. Impossible to leave behind. Never had cats at home before, but now life seems empty without them around me.
Catkeen's mission is to rescue abandoned and sick cats from the streets of Brasov, offer veterinary care and foster until they are adopted by loving families. In parallel, Catkeen finances a private neutering campaign to reduce the number of abandoned kittens and feral cats in the city. Now Catkeen looks after 160 cats in its own rescue center, in various other private fosters or on the streets.
Sweets, chocolate and salty snacks
We will be at Catkeen Rescue Center situated on a side street in the Civic Center of Brasov, not far from the old city center. The Rescue Center is hosting up to 35 cats at once, kittens and adult cats.
Cats have claws - sometimes they use them in playful mode but you, your shoes or your clothes may get scratched.
