Information and Advice on Cats

ADANA and cats

Since the reforms to the ADANA shelter in 2009, we no longer have the facilities to house cats in need of adoption.

From 2009 through October 2013 we worked informally with Nanette Roberts who had a small cat sanctuary at her home in the Estepona campo and we put her cats awaiting adoption on our website. At the end of October 2013 Nanette moved back to South Africa and, sadly, had to close her sanctuary.

We recommend that you contact Gatos y Amigos, Estepona about adoption of cats. They can be reached by email on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/gatosyamigos/.

STRAY CATS

Urbanizations tend to host numerous feral cats. These strays live off local garbage or in some instances are fed by caring local residents.

Currently the municipal authorities lack a sterilisation programme. ADANA recommends the sterilisation of feral cats. ADANA policy is to return these sterilised cats to their original place.

Special cat traps are available for catching the feral cats so that they can be taken to the vet to be neutered. This is normally done by interested residents of the affected area. If you're interested in getting one or many feral cats sterilised in your neighbourhood please contact the kennels at 952-113-467 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
