My name is Danica Mirkovic, I’m the president of Felinologic Association Felix and the owner of Cat Shelter Felix (it’s more of a sanctuary) in Serbia. Felinologic Association Felix is an association of cat lovers, founded by my associates and me in Novi Sad, Serbia, a few years ago. It is registered as a nonprofit organization in Serbian Business Registers Agency, ID number: 08841187, Tax Identification Number: 103793133. We were taking care of stray cats, trying to make their life on the street easier, but our protégés were endangered all the time. I have always thought that building of a shelter would mean safety for those (and other) cats so it finally took place in 2010. My shelter is registered as a shelter of Felinologic Association Felix in Ministry of Agriculture, Trade, Forestry and Water Management, Department of Veterinary Medicine.
Cat Shelter Felix is located in a small village in Vojvodina, Serbia. I have more than 90 cats in my shelter right now, all of them ex – strays. They are all neutered and spayed, vaccinated and checked by the vet on the regular basis and although some of them are very old or chronically ill it seems that they enjoy their life here.
In spite of the fact that my shelter is rather crowded, I can never turn my back on a cat in desperate situation, therefore they keep arriving every now and then. As the number of cats grows bigger, my expenses rise and it becomes harder and harder to defray them all, but the sight of happy kitties that are playing and running and resting completely relaxed, probably for the first time in their lives, makes all the efforts worthwhile.
My shelter depends on donations entirely and every kind of help is needed, welcome and greatly appreciated
