Help us taking care of cats at an animal-friendly homestay =)

The Exchange

Welcome to Lake Toba Cats Garden - the best place for animal lovers in Sumatra. We have around 20 cats here and they need everyday care: feeding, cleaning the area, some basic (and advanced!) medicine help. One of the goals is to build and improve the facilities for cats: feeding area, quarantine zone for new cats etc. The garden area is needed to be cleaned & arranged both for homestay guests (chillout zone) and cats (outdoor living place).
