About Old Cat
Old Cat is a shelter for abandoned, old and injured cats. It is placed 7 km. from the city of Popovača, in a protected Park of Nature: « Moslavačka Gora», in the village of Voloder in Croatia.
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.
2008. A 4 acres estate, woods and vineyards mostly, in the Protected Park of Nature on the slopes of Moslavačka Gora, near village of Voloder has been given at disposal to the «Old Cat», a Croatian nonprofit organizatio
The cats were moved from the expensive and narrow hotel to their new home in a beautifull surroundings of woods and vineyards. At last they have enough space for running, playing and sunbathing.
Thanks to a donation from Mrs. Zlata Kilchenmann and several Croatian companies: Samoborka, Ciglana Mraclin, Bramac, Schiedel, Knauf Insulation, KIO, Igm Šljunčara which donated building materials, the house in the middle of the shelter has been built.
Today «Old Cat» is a home for ever for 120 cats.
