If you find a cat in an emergency situation, in the area of Dénia, La Xara or Jesús Pobre, you must follow the protocol established by the town hall, to assist the cat in need. Firstly, call the local police: (0034) 965 780 190. They have to notify the municipal animal collection service, managed by APAD (a 24/7 service). They assess the situation on a case by case basis and decide how to help.  Should they need our support, we at Aldea Felina step in and take on responsibility.

We are a private association, organised by volunteers and financially supported by donations. We do not receive payments from any town hall or company for our work.

We have no emergency collection service of our own and do not have a 24/7 helpline. We use our resources to care for our local cats and collaborate to be more effective.


Asociación Protectora de Gatos de Dénia

Welcome to Aldea Felina - The Cat Protection Association in Denia. We work in the local community giving advice to local residents about how to care for cats, especially those in distress. We also temporarily re-home abandoned cats and kittens and castrate as many cats as possible, in our aim to stop the suffering of cats without a home.

Lost and Found

Here you can find all the cats who are lost and looking for their owner, or who have been found and are trying to return to their owner. Please take a look, share this information and help us reunite these cats with their owners.

Are you thinking of adopting a cat?

Please visit us at Aldea Felina! We are sure you will find your perfect cat and by adopting from us you give another cat the chance of being rescued. We cannot accept any more cats until we release the pressure and make adoptions.

Pass on our name to all your friends and family -every cat life matters!


In our shelter, we have a weekly rota of volunteers, caring for and playing with our residents. Kitten season is upon us and we have vacant shifts that we urgently need to fill. Without your help, our kittens and cats do not get what they deserve - the best! If you have four hours a week to give to our cats, they will be very grateful.

Purfect For Shopaholics

Have you heard about our very successful second hand charity shop in Els Poblets? We have friendly teams, working together a few hours a day, to sell high quality clothes, shoes, books, jewellery, kitchenware and more - to raise funds for our cats. We have shifts free; if you would like to meet new friends, help cats and have fun, all at the same time, we look forward to hearing from you.

Think Twice!

When you see a new cat at your door or in your local area, ask yourself one question: "Is this cat castrated?"

Seeing a new cat around could mean problems ahead - problems that you can easily rectify. Uncastrated cats, both domestic and wild are causing many people great stress and upset. Act before it's too late or instead of one cat at your door, you could have six.

Who are we?

We are “Aldea Felina” (village of cats); an officially registered non-profit volunteer organisation, using our skills and love of felines to help abandoned cats in our community. We are privately financed by donations, selling items in our 2nd hand shop and bequeaths from Last Wills. We are proud of the work we have been involved in since opening our doors in 2001. Take a look around our website, read here for yourself about the different jobs we do and imagine how much time and organisation we invest in our association, to accomplish the many tasks required of us. If you have something to offer our cats, get in touch - more hands make light work!
