Mission and Vision


Mission of the shelter is to provide « Home For Ever» for the cats that never   had a  home or were abandoned by their families.

Our vision is to create a friendly place of meeting  for people who share the attitude that  streets of cities and villages are not the place where abandoned pets should live, and that everyone could and should  contribute to this goal.
