AWA has estblished 3 Cat Cafes on a university campus which has a small population of about 12 cats.
Cat cafes are feeding stations where dry and wet food and water is provided for the resident cats after they have been sterilised.
A cat cafe can only be set up in areas such as shopping mall and hotel grounds. It also needs a group of volunteers to maintain it.
It is essential to establish a Trap Neuter Return programme. This means that each cat is sterilised and returned to the same site.
Two companies do free sterilisation for street cats ( under contract to Al Ain municipality):
