STERILA was founded on November 2016 by a local hotel owner and crying tourist to raise awareness and help end the suffering of cats on the island. As of 2023, we have sterilized over 4,000 cats and assisted around 600 adoptions but this is just the beginning of a long battle with the overpopulation of suffering stray cats!
