A new cats’ sanctuary in Bormla was inaugurated this morning by parliamentary secretary for Agriculture, Fisheries and Animal Rights, Roderick Galdes.

The sanctuary is being managed by Carers of Stray and Abandoned Felines (CSAF).At present, the sanctuary homes 250 abandoned or sick cats.

Mr Galdes said that on his appointment as parliamentary secretary he was approached by representatives of CSAF who spoke to him about the need to relocate. After the land was provided, works valued at €20,000 were carried out.

The Parliamentary secretary said that over the past months, the condition of a number of cats at the sanctuary has improved, thanks to the dedication of volunteers.


Mr Galdes called on the public to help out the sanctuary in any way they can. Meanwhile, the commissioner for animals will be launching an educational campaign in schools around Malta, to raise awareness about taking care of domestic animals. A number of educational books will be distributed for free.
