Cats’ Welfare League Tenerife 

page 12 cats

There are a lot of great reasons to adopt a cat, rather than a kitten. Adopting a cat from Cats Welfare not only supports our work and gives an abandoned cat a home, it will be neutered, given its vaccinations and will also come with a microchip and health book.

Apart from all the obvious benefits, do you know there are many health benefits to having a cat?

The simple act of stroking a cat for a few minutes has been shown to release “feel good” endorphins in the brain that are excellent for heart health, for instance.

Living with a cat from birth actually lowers the risk for developing allergies and strengthens the immune system; this protective benefit increases in homes with both cats and dog.

Having a life to care for gives purpose to the day and something to look forward to and having a non-judgemental companion can be a relief for the anxiety prone and disabled.

Research also suggests that the purring vibration we all love is actually beneficial to our bodies as well as for the cat’s. The frequency of a cat’s purr is the same frequency that encourages bone and tendon healing in rehabilitative therapy.

Cats are the most popular pets in the world. They’re soft, adorable, affectionate, easy-going companions that are capable of bringing great joy (and health!) into your home.

So what are you waiting for? Log onto our website and look at the cats and kittens currently waiting for homes www.cats-welfare-tenerife/pets. It’s updated daily so always has the latest availability and all cats go on a weeks trial to make sure they are your “Purfect” companion before you commit. If you would like to know more ring or Whatsapp Theresa on 680475500 (9.00 – 18.00 7 days a week).

Can you spare 1 euro a month?

For just 1euro a month you can join our group of “Teamers”. Sign up to this group and just 1euro a month will be donated from your designated account at the beginning of each month. We are hoping that this small amount will attract more people who may not be in a position to donate more but still want to help our cause. It’s simple to do, secure and only takes a couple of minutes. Please join, it will give us a regular income and mean that we can plan more effectively the work we can commit too each month. http://teaming.net/catswelfa-retenerife

Do you have something to donate?

We always require old towels and blankets as bedding for the cats and kittens. We also need pet carriers, pet beds, scratch posts etc (all in good condition please). Plus donations of good condition/quality clothes for our charity shop.

If you have anything for donation including as new furniture and household effects ring Mark on 636590557 and he will arrange collection from you. Our shop is on San Blas in Golf del Sur (Behind Hiperdino). It is open 7 days a week 10.00 until 18.00 but Saturdays is 11.00 until 16.00. Pop in for a browse and help us raise much needed funds to continue our work.
