Several years ago, a woman living in a large town in Serbia found a small kitten with his hind legs brutally cut off. With her care and treatment, this kitten grew up into a beautiful and happy tomcat, but unfortunately did not survive to see his 2nd birthday because sepsis set in. In his short life in this world, this woman loved him and his story became a painfully true tale of courage, hope and faith. He left his legacy to all cat lovers who have heard of him and he will never be forgotten because he is the reason, Cat Shelter Felix was born.
The shelter located outside of town, was founded in 2010 with the hopes of creating a sanctuary for the protection of stray felines on the streets. The goal of the all volunteer, non-profit organization is to help and improve the welfare of felines in the Vojvodina region of Northern Serbia.
Cat Shelter Felix has never been provided with any kind of support from the State in the form of Governmental funding to help or improve conditions for the animals at their facility. Unfortunately, due to the severity of the winter in 2011, the structure of their building experienced a lot of damage due to the prolonged snow build up, freezing ice and temperatures. The roof collapsed, and the animals were put at great risk. Despite financial hardships, this repair work needs to get done properly so that all the rescued cats at Cat Shelter Felix are safe and secure for the next winter.
Their efforts are ongoing and always a struggle, please consider supporting Cat Shelter Felix through our Shelter Grant Program today.
