Kitten Rescue Curacao Foundation

ANBI StatusThe Kitten Rescue Curacao Foundation provides a safe haven for motherless kittens, nursing cats, injured cats and cats with special needs. Kitten Rescue Curacao was founded by Miriam Bleeker in 2014 and became an official registered foundation in 2019. The Kitten Rescue Curacao Foundation does have a ANBI Status (Dutch Only).

Tevens betekent dit ANBI keurmerk dat wij als stichting voldoen aan strenge kwaliteitseisen. Zo weet je zeker dat Stichting Kitten Rescue Curacao bijdraagt aan een betere wereld voor de dieren, zorgvuldig omgaat met elke euro en (financiële) verantwoording aflegt.

ANBI Status (Dutch Only)

The population of cats on Curacao, an island in the Caribbean, is out of hand. Too many stray cats because people don’t spay and neuter and therefore (motherless) kittens are found almost every day. In boxes, plastic bags just left to die on a horrible way. Motherless kittens without any chance of survival if there’s no help for these little ones. This situation lead to the start of the Kitten Rescue Curacao Foundation. We started to help out newborns and kittens that just starting eating by themselves. The last few years the foundation also started helping out not only kittens but also nursing cats, injured cats and cats with special needs. We do offer them a safe place to stay and heal or to raise their babies in a completely safe environment.

On a daily basis we have over 75 cats in the shelter. We deliver healthy food, medical care and we start looking for a furrever home. The cost of the shelter are very high so please help us and donate. Adopt a kitten or cat, adopt virtual or become a supporter.. Thank you so much!

Because sterilization is the only way to prevent all this animal suffering, the foundation opened its own operating room in 2020 and started a TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) programme in collaboration with Dutch veterinarians and a team of volunteers. Every year, about 1000 stray cats and cats of owners with a small grant are sterilized in 8 projects. Thanks to our partners and donors, we can continue to organize these sterilization campaigns.

Piet Hellemans and Miriam Bleeker, founder of Kitten Rescue Curacao will show you what the foundation is all about. (Dutch Only)
