The largest animal shelter in the Var is looking for volunteers and donations

Opened in 1993, it is located on the heights of Ollioules 927 chemin de la Poussaraque, on a raised ground in terraces and shelters more than 170 abandoned cats, found in garbage cans, mistreated, injured. Currently, 30 little kittens are placed in foster families throughout the Toulon area for adoption and to date 320 have been adopted. Small new heated chalets, infirmary, large cages with concrete floors, new enclosures, everything is well thought out so that the little kitties are in a peaceful environment, while waiting for a home to love and protect them.

The association is made up of two employees and 15 volunteers. But these figures are not enough according to Jocelyne: “Despite the subsidies from TPM, the mayor of Ollioules, the region and the department, we lack donations, whether cash, food. Patricia, a volunteer, makes jams and sells them for 5 euros, during events for the benefit of the association. The 2022-2023 calendar at 10 euros is in pre-order on the site and will allow us to finance some veterinary expenses.” The President launches “A call for volunteers, for all DIY work, cleaning cages and chalets. All little hands are welcome!”
