When I first moved to Malta, I helped out at Animal Guardians Malta, a cat shelter. In 2016, they let their first stray cat into their sanctuary.
AGM was started and is run by a Maltese cat lover, Karman. as well as some extraordinarily committed and amazing supporters who help run what is now blooming around Malta.
The help of volunteers and the kindness and generosity of our supporters to maintain this cute little cat village has indeed opened many people’s eyes!
They are a regulated charity NGO. VO/1063.
Their mission is to
- To rescue, rehabilitate and rehome stray cats in forever homes.
- To raise funds and sponsorship to feed and care for their cats
- To encourage and host animal-assisted therapy
- To work closely with government ministers to pursue a policy of neutering within Malta
- To invite and educate schoolchildren in animal care and the benefits of neutering.
- To work with local and international animal NGOs
With now over 125 cats they have really made this something so emotionally inspiring!
Based in the grounds of St Vincent de Paul ,welcome older people, accompanied by family or nurse, to spend time among the cats, chatting and hugging them. The cats benefit from this love and attention, too!
They also run further and more programs for children with special needs – whether it’s autism, learning difficulties or bullying victims aree also invited to join us at the cat sanctuary and enjoy our fluffy, friendly cats.
There are over 300,000 stray cats in Malta; managing and reducing this number is vital. Educating the population is hugely important.
Inviting schoolchildren to the sanctuary and showing them what we do and why we do it is a crucial way of ensuring the next generation is aware of the issues and teaches them softer values e.g. caring for animals.
