We are an non-profit organisation (NPO 249 – 201) comprised of a group of dedicated individuals with a common goal. Not only do we all love the Africa Wild cat, we love all cats. We welcome help from anyone who is willing to roll their sleeves up and wants to get involved. Our core team is made up of four directors and numerous others who work day in, day out working toward our common goals.
The main threat to the African wild cat is cross-breeding with domestic cats and because of this pure African wild cats are scarce. Feral domestic cats also compete with wild cats for prey and habitat and can also transmit infectious diseases to them such as FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus).
By using humane food-baited traps we catch, sterilize, vaccinate, treat and release feral cats. In doing this, we hope to reduce the damaging effect the feral cats have on the local African wild cat populations as well as to limit cruelty towards feral cats within the community. In addition to the TNR project we maintain 28 feeding stations scattered across Hoedspruit. Feral kittens are fostered and adopted out to loving families.
