Israel Cat Lovers Society Helping Homeless Cats

Here is an interesting article in the Jerusalem Post about the Israel Cat Lovers Society and the work they do. It's always interesting to see what activists around the world are doing on these issues.

The Israel Cat Lovers Society's front line of activity is the rescue of abandoned and street cats, and spaying and immunization. The Second Lebanon War and evacuation of northern settlements left a heartbreaking population of abandoned animals. "This was widely publicized but brought us in more stray cats rather than donations," Ringel wryly pointed out.

The society's aims include education and advocacy, arousing the awareness through schools and a hotline on feline care and the importance of spaying and immunization, particularly to prevent illegal and cruel methods of extermination such as poisoning. Youngsters are encouraged to help at information centers and be involved in running the shelter.
