Description: GREAT organizes a project that aims to give a better life to stray cats by working together with a local social entrepreneur pet shop in Semarang City called Star Paws. The movement started with a street feeding activity to provide stray cats with proper food and clean water. When a cat is found sick and in need of medication, there will be on-site treatment. Further examination with a vet is also provided when needed. In order to control the population of the stray cat, we raise funds to neuter the stray cat. Star Paws has a mini shelter with 20 cats that were rescued from the streets. There is also a campaign to stop animal abuse through social media, gatherings, talk shows, and local actions. They do this knowing that some people torture animals aimlessly.
Type of Work: This project focuses on two main activities. Raising awareness of local people against animal abuse, spreading the message to start doing good things for stray animals around us. Supporting the cat lover community by helping them to maintain the shelter, street feeding, and fundraising.
