Local rehousing centers house lot of cats in my area. I support these by (re-)socializing (re) cats with severe behavioral problems. I specialize in in cats that show excessive fear or aggression, but I also support the team by recognizing health problems, and optimize living arrangements for elderly cats, and other cats with special needs.
Moreover, I provide aftercare for our clients they take in new cats or dogs into their homes.
In addition, I lead the ‘Reading for Cats’ initiative for children from 7 to 12 years old in Dierentehuis Kennemerland in Zandvoort. This national Dierenbescherming initiative pairs children together with cats. Research has shown that asking children to read out to cats has lasting positive effects not only on the children’s learning to read with confidence, but project also helps to increase adoption opportunities for our cats.
For adoption of cats in the Haarlem / Bloemendaal / Velsen area, I recommend these re-housing centers:
