Taking two cats home from the central shelter felt exciting and reassuring at the same time. The ever intensifying feeling however that I can offer a loving home only to two cats came unexpected and was upsetting; there are so many animals waiting for their guardians in shelters. Seeking a shelter with like-minded people was simply the logical step to take.
Today, I work at Samtpfoten on opening our doors also to those who speak little or no German. I manage our correspondence in English, translate the website and give a tour to those interested in volunteering with our cats. I also contribute to the elaboration of concepts essential for our shelter.
At Samtpfoten, cats’ health, a species-appropriate diet and the personality of each cat receive equal attention. We do not only rehome cats, we are also happy to share all the knowledge and experience we’ve gathered over the years.
