Cats are our passion
Who we are
Asociación Gatos y Amigos (AGYA) was founded on May 16, 2013 in Estepona to protect street cats and promote their respect on the part of all. We develop the CES Protocol and offer food and veterinary care to feral cats.
what we do
We strive to protect abandoned and street cats from our municipality and encourage their respect and care by the population, starting with the neighbors who are in the area of influence of a cat colony. We believe that the existence of stable, controlled and protected street cat colonies and anonymous volunteers is beneficial to everyone.
Our main goals
Protect abandoned and stray cats by all possible legal means, encouraging respector care by the population and condemning violence and mistreatment against them.
Promote the existence of stable, controlled and protected street cat colonies by volunteers and partners of the Association, as well as enhance the adoption of their members.
To raise awareness of the need to sterilize domestic cats and to fight their abandonment on the streets.
Request collaboration from local entities when controlling the various colonies of cats within the municipality, rejecting such collaboration when it involves the extermination of cats.
Prepare a register of all stable cat colonies within the municipality.
Contact the veterinary clinics in the area to assist in the development of the purposes of the Association.
