The Foundation is funding emergency veterinary assistance, care and rehabilitation for injured or sick homeless animals, as well as the sterilization programme for the city’s colony of cats during the period from 2012-2015.

Every month “The Animals’ Friend” finds new homes for approximately 15-20 dogs and 50-60 cats. The Foundation supports the sterilization programme for colonies of cats in various places around Latvia, but primarily in Riga, using the “catch-sterilize-release” method, which has proven to be effective – not only has cats’ quality of life improved, but also that of people with the outcome that, instead of being a problem, street cats have become a normal part of the urban environment.
