Created on September 9, 2016, The Wolf Cats is a non-profit association under the 1901 law which undertakes to collect stray cats on the agglomeration of Grand-Dax. The aim is to avoid overpopulation of cats and animal abuse, in particular through sterilization.
Its priority mission is to sterilize free cats who cannot bear to live with humans and who are subsequently reintegrated into their place of life by feeding and caring for them if necessary.
Having no refuge, she has several host families Mainly domiciled in the municipalities of Dax, Peyrehorade and Banos. Thus, 120 to 150 cats are adopted per year on average: however, note a peak in May / June up to 30 cats / month at the start of the kittens’ period.

Do you want to become a Host Family for a cat?
Become Host Family (FA) within the association. Your mission is to take care of a chat supported by the association in order to propose it later for adoption. You will give him the best care until your little protégé finally finds a loving family. It can be an adult cat, a kitten or a sick or injured animal to be treated and put back on its feet. Your presence is then essential during this time.
The associative team stays in contact with you and checks the good socialization of your occupant, especially if he has to live with other pets.
