Adopt a kitten
Our Adoption Program
Where do the kittens come from?
Every year Street Cats Rescue is contacted by locals and tourists alike, who have found an abandoned kitten or have been feeding a mother cat with their litter of kittens, and for various reasons can no longer look after them. Each story is different and often heart breaking, with 5 day old kittens rescued from rubbish bins.
Consequently we continuously have plenty of adorable kittens and cats in need of good homes with lots of love.

Street Cats – Adoptions
Vaccinations and Neutering
All our kittens and cats are neutered, have two Trivalente vaccinations against the most common diseases [Feline panleukopenia (FPV or FPLV), Feline viral rhinotracheitis (FHV, aka herpes virus), Feline calicivirus (FCV)], as well as the obligatory rabies vaccinations. Furthermore they are tested for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV).
We cooperate with AgroConil, a veterinary clinic in El Colorado, who offer us a discounted rate for all medical treatments and care.
Costs of Preparing a Kitten for Adoption
Getting a kitten ready for adoption costs about 130€ for a male and 150€ for a female cat. This amount only covers the vaccinations and neutering and does not include food, litter and additional medical bills.
To cover some of our expenses, we ask for a contribution for each adopted kitten or cat.
For local adoptions this contribution is 50€ – 100€ depending on financial ability. We can also offer payment in installments. For international adoptions the amount is 170€ which takes into account the additional transport costs.
Home Check & Contract
To make sure our kittens will have a good home we also do a home check before we agree to the adoptions. Furthermore we have a contract that we sign with the new owner to ensure they are aware how to appropriately care for a kitten.
