Cat Village has been in operation since 2004. To date, they have taken in approximately 1000 cats who have found their forever home at the Cat Village. The cats at this village are not available for adoption as they come from horrific and stressful situations and need special care.
Cat Village is a safe, happy and stress-free environment where the cats can roam free. They live on two hectares of natural vegetation, dotted with wooden Wendy houses for shelter. All cats are sterilised, well fed and have water available 24 hours a day, ensuring they are always well cared for.
Irma Teller is the special lady who devoted herself to the rescue of abused, abandoned and homeless cats. She and her husband, Herbert, have always had a desire to create a cat sanctuary where they could care and look after unwanted and neglected felines. Their dream became a reality when they found a property in Benoni and turned it into a haven for many cats.
