Many animals wouldn’t have the chance to survive without the precious support of volunteers that every single day are on site to rescue those injured and abandoned.

On the French island of Corse, the situation of stray cats is very critical. Their number continues to increase exponentially as consequence of the many litters abandoned. This is due to the lack of sterilization activities, that are not carried out by local institutions and also by the same owners. OIPA volunteers put all their efforts and money to guarantee those cats a better quality of life and the only help they get comes from donations of animal lovers.

Thanks to your donations, OIPA Corse had the chance to sterilize some of the roaming cats they feed and care and rush to the vet for saving Penelope’s life.

Penelope was found suffering with a deep wound on the neck probably caused by a dog’s bite. The neck was swollen and the injury infected, but with an emergency surgery and a post-surgery treatment, this beauty is now slowly recovering.

In addition, volunteers recently rescued two kittens of few days that were abandoned inside a carton box. The female was unfortunately unable to pass the night while her little brother, just 220 gr when he was rescued, started to drink from the baby bottle being able to survive and reaching after few weeks more than 700 gr. Pulce (Flea) is now able to eat all alone. He’s very active, he likes playing and being petted and the best news is that he has been recently adopted!

All this wouldn’t be possible without your help! The life of many animals is saved thanks to the good-heartedness of animal lovers.

You can continue to support the activities of OIPA Corse and save the life of many other cats.



Thanks to the project “Save a Stray”, OIPA provided additional support to its delegation in Corse. Three female stray cats have been sterilized and one male neutered. Other stray cats in need received antibiotics, topical medications, urinary infection treatments, eye drops, blood and FIV/FELV tests. More than 130 kg of good quality dry food for sterilized cats was also purchased.
