ADAN - Cat Shelter
September 2011. Rabat, Maroc.
|Name:||Association de Défense des Animaux et de la Nature|
|Aim:||"To provide care for stray cats in Rabat."|
Our visit to ADAN in Rabat was beautiful. We took a small taxi in the morning, together with our friends Rachid and Marcos, and found the shelter on the second floor of a building. Little cats laid purring on chairs as a friendly woman welcomed us. We interviewed her, or actually our Moroccan friend did in Arabic, and we were watching and listening to the sound of her voice.
She had explained the needs - mainly cat food and medication - and the difficulties the shelter faces. There were a few dozen cats living on the roof, some of them missed a leg or an eye, others were sick. But they were well taken care of here.

We hope that they will encounter volunteers and veterinarians who have the resources to help them structurally.
The concept of Charity Travel is very much alive, and we encourage everyone who has the chance to take that little detour - or plan that grand tour - and engage. We'll always do that.
