The benefits of adopting a cat from a rescue centre, rather than a breeder

For more details, please fill in the form

Following on from Dr Kreiner’s video on the benefits of adopting a cat from a rescue centre, rather than a breeder (below), we would like to introduce you to some of the cats that we have rescued and that are currently avaiable for adoption from The House of Veterinary Doctors in Maccabim, Israel.

Cat 1 – Persion cat abandoned 2 months ago outside surgery along with sibling. Sibling was already adopted, but this beauty is still looking for a new loving home.


Cat 2 – Black and ginger female tortoiseshell. Very social. She can be temperamental with other cats. She had a broken leg when brought in but all is healed now, and she is totally healthy.


Cat 3 – Grey Tabby, 1 month old. Been brought in to be rehomed. Extremely friendly.


Cat 4 – White cat with brown hair. Nickname is Twister, because of twisted back leg. Not capable of being with other animals unfortunately.


Cat 5 – 8 weeks old kitten. Brought in 4 weeks ago from the streets of Jerusalem. Timid, but friendly.


Cat 6 – Ginger was brought in from another shelter with a broken leg. He is very talkative. He has been with us a few months, and would love a busy happy playful home.


Cat 7 – Jessi is a very friendly grey tabby


Cat 8 – Boris would love a friendly fun loving home with people who want to shower him with lots of love. He has been with us for several months.


Cat 9 – Abandoned at 4 weeks. Found on the street. A bit timid. Good with other cats.

As you can see, here are just a few of the cats we have in our rescue centre, but these cats come in an array of shapes, sizes and colours, as well as ages, to fit the desires of all potential adopters.

These cats have all been immunized, dewormed and assessed for behavioral issues by the skilled staff at the shelter. They’ve also been trained to use the litterbox in most cases, so you do not need to worry about an awkward and potentially smelly transition to living at your house.

Adopting an animal is a huge commitment, and not all cats are the same. Therefore, if you come in with your family or whomever will be living with the new cat, our staff at The House of Veterinary Doctors can get to know you, introduce you to some prospective matches, and assist you with the matchmaking process for a perfect companion. We are motivated to make sure our rescued cats find their forever homes. We can also provide you with information about the adjustment period if you’ve never had a cat before.

The amount of reward you personally will gain from adopting a cat is immense.  Companion animals offer a number of mental health benefits. Having a pet of any species around can make people feel happier and more balanced, and the routine of caring for and interacting with a pet like a cat can improve mood and reduce the sense of isolation. Cats are especially great companion animals for people who don’t have the energy or ability to care for a dog, but still want someone around the house to keep them company.

Cats are incredibly diverse, personality-wise. They can be shy and outgoing, playful or more reserved, fascinated by sinks or horrified by water. If you haven’t had the pleasure of having a cat in your life yet, a shelter cat might totally change the way you view these delightful animals.

As you can see from the selection of cats above, they are varying ages, sizes, colours and characters.  If you are intereted in adopting a cat, we would love to introduce our cats to you..

If you need some more convincing as to why rescue cats are the perfect pet.  Watch this video.

If you would be interested in adopting any of these fine felines, please get in touch with us at 08 973 7900.

We wish you luck in your new lives as a rescue cat owner.

A very big thank you to Ahava and all the team for bringing our beloved fur family from Australia to Israel (2 cats and 2 dogs). It was a complex job given the mixed breeds of our rescue pups and the effects of covid on the options available in the pet transport industry. Ahava was so professional and patient and went beyond the call of duty to assist us. Her communication was prompt and informative. Her knowledge and professionalism were exceptional. We will definitely use them should we need to return to Oz. Thank you, Ahava!!!

The service on Terminal4Pets is highly recommended. I brought my dog from the UAE to Israel without any problems thanks to Ahava's help throughout the whole process and paperwork.

Excellent service! Amazing 24/7 support from Ahava! The most complicated flight for two cats to New Zealand couldn't be possible without her assistance. Highly recommended team!

Amazing service from Ahava and the team. Moving a dog from Israel to the UK is particularly complicated (and my situation involved various delays and pauses) but they were happy to wait for as long as needed until we were ready to move. They got everything in order, they were always responsive (including at 11pm when I landed in Paris and had a question) and had great communication with my vet also. Highly recommend for the most stress free possible experience !

Thanks you Terminal4Pets I will recommend you to everyone I know who fly with a pet! you guys are awesome!

My experience with Terminal4Pets was unbelievably easy and efficient. I lived in Israel for a few years and had experienced many different approaches to business and customer service - mostly less that standard. T4P were amazingly responsive and treated my dog so very well. They worked with the kennel that he was staying at and got him to the US without ANY issues. When the airline gave them a challenge, T4P quickly approached me with reasonable options that helped me stay in control of my dog's itinerary and get him here quickly. I highly recommend them!
