Cats room in our shelter is 13,4 m2 big. After Rīga veterinary inspectorate visit, it was stated, that according to law, we are allowed to give shelter only for 3 cats here!!!
At the moment we have 10. Moreover, 3 cats are at the isolation room, 2 live in our office, 4 babies with cat-mother are in the baby room, and 3 more are on the quarantine, in the separate crate.
According to this “wonderful” law, we must have at least 5 m2 for each cat!!! This is insane!
Unfortunately, no expalnations or details of this law are available, because the minister, who signed it, had already died. But inspectors understand it literally. Although they admit: “the law is imperfect, but we have to accept it, and you too. If you build a big open-air cage for cats to walk, it will be fine.”
Oh, well… Law is law. And I myself, as a veterinarian, agree, that cats need to walk outside.
So we start a fundraising company, to make the open-air cage and to improve the cat room. We have to be fast, because it’s necessary to finish before Winter. Otherwise there’s a risk of big penalties. Soon we’ll publish the list of materials needed, hoping someone can help us with material purchase.
We can’t afford this all without you. Only together we can help these helpless creatures around us.
