Are you looking for an animal companion to take over your life? We might have someone to suit you.
Although Animal Advocacy is not a rescuing organisation, we inevitably have a number of animals in our care as a result of our work. We have no rescue centre. Instead we have a team of volunteers who generously donate food, time and accommodation to the animals they foster. Veterinary bills are another story.
Our adoption fees, €50 a feline, include a variety of services – age-appropriate vaccinations, FIV/FeLV tests, spaying/neutering and deworming to name a few – the total value of which can exceed €350.
If you find our fees offputting please consider the fact that the weekly cost of caring for a feline animal companion can be €18 – if you can’t afford our fees, do consider whether you can afford a companion.

Within days, three more kittens turned […] Continue reading
