Their Work

Founded in 2021, MCatS is a no-kill shelter and the first nonprofit organization in Kosovo, a nation inundated with strays and relinquished cats. Working with a network of volunteers, advocates, foster caregivers, and local veterinarians, MCatS rescues hundreds of cats every year. They also serve as a resource to the community by providing information on pet ownership, including spay/neuter, positive behavior training, nutrition, and veterinary care. MCatS is committed to promoting compassion towards strays through education and advocacy efforts.

After hearing of the incredible work MCatS’s is doing, SPCA International wanted to lend them a helping hand so that they could rescue and adopt out more cats in need.
