We Are
La Casetta Dei Gatti

In Rome there is a park where you can see lots of colourful spots in the grass: they are the cats of La Casetta! La Casetta Dei Gatti means “The Little Cat House”. We are a shelter  for many injured and abandoned cats. We are a proper Sanctuary inside the city, where cats can be happy and roam free!

What We Do

Food and Care

Every day we look after our cats with care and love; twice a day we feed them and clean their litters and sanctuary ground. The sick and injured cats receive their treatments every day as recommended by our vets.


Spaying and neutering is the most effective answer to decrease the alarming number of strays present in Rome. All the cats that arrive a The Casetta are always spayed or neutered. We also support several stray awareness campaigns throughout the year.

Cat Colonies

The Casetta Dei Gatti looks after several cat colonies in Rome. Our volunteers prepare and take food to the colonies twice a day, morning and evening. We also make sure that the cats are spayed and neutered and that they receive veterinary treatments when needed.


Every year the Casetta Dei Gatti supports and promotes educational events and initiatives to inform the public on a range of issues concerning our feline friends. We also promoted one-day workshops in primary schools, which have been a huge success!


One of our main goal as a no-profit is to find a loving home for the cats of The Casetta. We are proud to say that every year we manage to get more than a hundred cats adopted, both kittens and adult cats!

Extraordinary Therapies

At the Casetta we never leave anyone behind. Many cats are in need of extra-ordinary therapies: although these therapies are often very expensive, we always rely on the best specialists in Rome to help our cats  (eye vets, neurologists, etc)

Our sanctuary relies on your generosity. It is thanks to people like you that we can carry on our work and give a second chance to many stray or injured cats.
