Working student Zanda Indriksone started helping homeless and abandoned cats about two years ago. Although not in high school or university she did not study about animals in depth, she got knowledge about cats, their nature and health from her own experience. During all this time she helped more than 350 cats.

"For example , I am going down the street - when I see a cat, I just can not pass away," says Zanda, and it could happen any day. "The first thing I do is take the cat to the vet so the vet could check cat's health and determine cats age," explains Zanda the first steps after she finds small animals. Thankfully she is not alone in this process, because volunteers also started to help and provide temporary homes for cats.

How long a cat stays in temporary home depends on each cat's condition. "If cats condition is good and the cat is healthy, there can be a chance to find a home within half an hour. This mainly happens in the summer. Longest time cat spent in temporary home was about a month, but this when cat required special treatment." comments Zanda.

Currently Zanda also became a member of the non-profit cat protection organization - Cat Care Community who are building wooden houses for homeless cats in Riga and other Latvian cities.
