The Cat Boat
The 'Poezenboot' is possibly the most famous animal shelter in the Netherlands. The boat was founded in 1968 by Henriëtte van Weelde, as her own house had become too small for the alley cats she already hosted. Since then the boat has been refurbished a few times and gradually developed into a genuine tourist attraction.
The Cat Boat doesn't get any municipal aid and is therefore completely dependant on private gifts. In case you'd like to support this unique cat shelter you can become a donor on from 10 Euro a year. Of course you can pay the boat a visit too: just for fun... or in case you're considering to adopt one of it's furry inhabitants.
