Fixing a hole in the roof @ CatSanctuary Goa

CatSanctuary Goa is a privately run shelter and rescue for cats in North Goa. It provides a shelter for at-risk feral or abandoned cats - currently housing 50 permanent inmates - and carries out vaccination and spaying programs for feral cat colonies in areas like Aldonha, Mapusa and their surroundings. the Sanctuary is headquartered in a beautiful 80-year old bungalow with extensive grounds. However, the structure comes with its own maintenance needs. Mainly, the Mangalore tile roof, which has several leaks and weak spots needs to be completely inspected and overhauled before the monsoons.

A thorough fix of the roof will keep the cats of the Sanctuary and their human caretakers home and dry for at least another 4 years. We've attached some inside and outside photos highlighting tiles, beams and gutters that need attention. 


While we cannot currently offer you an 80G exemption for your donations, we will be posting updates with photos of all the repairs and receipts for all the payments made.

There's a bonus: our fundraiser is being supported by Bangalore-based musician and writer Jayaprakash Satyamurthy who will write an original poem based on a keyword of your choice for every donor who contributes the equivalent of Rs. 1000 or above!

The monsoons are on their way, so please visit our FB page, read about our work, check out our cats' pics and make a donation!

The roof is now structurally sound and the workers are installing glass and air vents for an airy, sunny space for the cats.
We still need to pay Rs 75,000 for all this. That means we need a final push to raise another Rs. 35,000. Please consider upping your donation or sharing this with friends and family, and thanks again!!!

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your support. Repairs on the roof are nearly done, and we're hoping to stretch a bit and redo our aging wiring if more funds come in. We're also gathering receipts for our next update, so you can see where your donations were used.
