Many many cats on the Streets of Puerto Rico need 'Trap Neuter & Release' Services | Help Us Sterilize More Street Cats

$465.00 raised of $535.00

One man has made it his mission to help the street cats of Puerto Rico, specifically in his neighborhood of Puntas Rincon. The photos you see are actual cats he is helping.

You may not have seen it happening in front of your eyes but he is working tirelessly to help the stray cats.  Not only with minimal necessary Vet services but with shelter, food and love.  The social cats he is always trying to find homes for - reach him though 

His efforts do not stop at just feeding these animals, he goes the extra mile bringing the cats in for vaccines and most importantly sterilization. Because of excellent Vets in Puerto Rico, offering discounted services to street animals, our cats for one cat are as low as $90.

Defensa will continue to support this man and his valiant efforts to combat the overpopulation of cats in his neighborhood - no donation is too small - TNR can be the answer!

  • TNR (Trap Neuter Release) work is happening again! 

    Can you tell how many cats are in this huddle? We can't. 

    But this group of adorable Puntas cats are ready to be caught, sterilized then released back to their colony.  

    It’s very important work and will keep the number of stray animals down which is becoming increasingly difficult since Hurricane Maria.  

    Please continue to support our TNR efforts

  • UPDATE on  NOCHE, one of the 'Puntas Street Cats TNR Project' that had and injury to his eye.

    It is with great sadness that his rescuer and our Vets made the painful decision to end NOCHE's suffering.

    His injury was just too severe.

    In Edwardo's words ;

    "A few days ago I noticed he had an eye punctured and had rips across the side of his face near his eye. From the puncture in his eye I could see the fluid slowly draining from his eye. I was so saddened, when I realized that saving this cat was not likely. I knew recovery from treatment
    would require a collar and eye drops but his wild behavior would not allow for that.
    I rushed him to the Aguada Medical Clinic hoping I might be wrong in my analysis but the veterinarian said the same. The cat's wild nature would not allow for follow up treatment if
    surgery were performed. My voiced cracked when I said, then put him down. As painful as that sentence was to say, I kept in mind that leaving him in that condition was not an alternative. At least I was able to end his suffering."

    THANK YOU Edwardo for showing these cats kindness and love even if it were for just a brief moment.   

    Your donations make it possible for us to help rescuers and fund these TNR Projects.  Any amount makes a difference.
