What is SoCCS?
SoCCS is an animal charity dedicated to working with communities and businesses to help manage the numerous stray cat colonies in and around the Sotogrande area.
We also seek to assist local authorities when there is a need, or when requested to do so.
SoCCS focuses on two tasks:
- Trap, neuter and release of feral cats to keep cat populations at an acceptable healthy number
- Feeding cats in established zones to make sure that feral cat colonies are healthy and, consequently, an effective natural force to control rats and mice, thus helping minimise the use of poisons that are both cruel to animals and detrimental to the environment
SoCCS does not operate a shelter and is therefore unable to accept cats for rehoming.
Fundraising and Finances
SoCCS is a registered non-profit charity run by a small group of unpaid volunteers who work tirelessly to improve the lives of feral cats.
At this time SoCCS receives no support from any local authorities and relies completely on the funds we raise through memberships and donations to carry out our work in the community. We are immensely grateful for any support we receive!
SoCCS operates with financial transparency and we publish our financial accounts quarterly on this website. Furthermore, SoCCS has retained the services of a certified accountant to review our accounts and to file annual reports with the appropriate authorities.

Please note, while we would love to help with all aspects of cat care, SoCCS does not run a refuge and cannot generally assist with injured cats or with rehoming cats. We simply do not have the necessary facilities nor staff to help in this regard. There are several other animal charities in the area that specialize in this kind of work that can help in cases like these. Please click here for more information.
