The Rehoming Centre (RC) is built into the bastion walls and it is situated at St Francis Ravelin Street, Floriana. We take in animals who have been mistreated, abandoned or are found as strays, many in a dreadful state. As a pofessionally staffed centre, we specialise in homing more difficult animals and older ones rather than puppies and klittens. The Re-Homing Centre is open to the public for those looking to adopt an animal, we operate a matching system to reduce the stress to the animals from constant streams of unfamiliar people.
We fully comply with Maltese law concerning animal welfare in sanctuaries, meeting all the licensing criteria (including the numbers of animals allowed to be housed together).
We further exceed this by voluntarily choosing to work to the much higher standards of the Association Of Dogs’ and Cats’ Homes in the UK. This is because we believe that animal welfare is truly served by caring for animals correctly and in line with their needs rather than accumulating large numbers of animals. We also work to the principles of the Million Cat Challenge (run by Maddie’s Fund, UC Davis, University of Florida and the American SPCA) and the Cat Friendly Homing principles of International Cat Care.
Though working to high standards, we are limited by our surroundings – the Re-Homing Centre facilities are now outdated and in need of repairs. We are currently working to develop a new shelter and rehoming centre, and a small cat homing hub, on two sites away from Floriana. More information will follow in 2018.
For further details call in at the MSPCA Re-Homing Centre at St Francis Ravelin, Floriana or ring 21230468.
We’re open from 10am to 12 noon and 1pm to 5pm Wednesday to Sunday, closed on Monday & Tuesday and public holidays. We recommend adopters call us first to book an appointment time so you can get priority if we are busy!.
The MSPCA is totally reliant on the kind donations of the public as the MSPCA do not receive any Government funding.
