Dear Friends,

We recently had a visit to the sanctuary by local photographer Yulian Sotolongo Vazquez who took some amazing pictures of our beloved residents.

Currently there are around 180 cats who call the sanctuary home, each of them has their own unique, quirky personality and these photos do an amazing job at catpturing their beautiful souls.

We are currently working on building a new area at the sanctuary to house a group of 15 cats whom desperatly needed to be relocated and in the next update we will share pictures of the completed project.

Thanks to all of you for you continued love and support.

Hello Friends,

Just a little update from Apao… 

We have continued to make small improvements around the sanctuary over the past few months, building and repairing porches, covered play areas and common areas.

A new indoor sink has been installed for washing food and water bowls which will be greatly appreciated by the volunteers during the colder months.

Preparation work has already begun to rebuild the fence surrounding the Leukemia area, so more updates are to come about that very soon.

And finally, we are slowly replacing the perimeter fence around the entire sanctuary.

In the meantime, please enjoy these photos taken recently of our beloved residents.

Hello Friends,

Just a quick update on some the improvements that have been made at the sanctuary over the past few months.

Starting with a new front porch for our lovely blind cats, they just love sitting out and basking in the warm sun.

We’ve also expanded the roof on the main house in order to give a larger covered outdoor area to protect the kitties from the rain and hot summer sun.

And finally, our storage area has been expanded to give us more room for cat food, blankets, building supplies, etc.

I’ve included some pictures of our handy work, hope you enjoy!

Hello Friends,

With winter just around the corner we have been working on getting the newly built cat houses equipped with wood burning pellet stoves to keep the kitties warm and cozy. Even though the temperature here in Spain rarely dips below freezing it does get quite chilly at night and very humid so heating definitely improves the quality of life of our furry friends. And when day turns to night, they know it’s time to get a good spot by the fire to cozy up for the evening and nothing warms our hearts more to see them happy and content.

FelV Area
FelV Area

Hello Friends,

When we moved the cat shelter to its current location just over 4 years ago, the very first house we built was for our cats with FelV. For those of you who don’ t know, FelV stands for feline leukemia, it’s a virus that weakens the cat’s immune system which can lead to various diseases and eventually death. It’s contagious from cat to cat so it’s important that all cats are tested upon arrive at the shelter and those who are positive must be kept separate.

During the move we had a very limited amount of time to build some shelters and move 150+ cats so the original house we built was actually made out of scraps of wood. Over time it has deteriorated, and its foundations were beginning to rot so the time has come to rebuild it.

The old house has already been demolished, new materials have been purchased and building starts next week! The new house will be approximately 350 square feet (32 square meters) with windows for natural light, a wood pellet stove for heat, a loft area, a covered porch and will be fully furnished with lots of shelves and soft comfy beds for our furry friends.

We are really proud and excited about this project. Cats with FelV are not widely accepted at other facilities so they really don’t get much of a chance and we are one of the only shelters in the area with a dedicated space for them. On average cats will live for 2 to 3 years once diagnosed and we aim to make that time as comfortable as possible for them.

The house you see in these pictures is the old one and I will be sure to update you all the pictures of the new house as soon as we’ve completed it. I’ve also included some pictures of our lovely FelV residents. Enjoy!
