The Animal Care Association of The Gambia (ACA) is a Banjul
registered animal charity working in Gambia to help mostly
stray dogs and cats. It was started in 2009 by a group of
people who were concerned about the plight of feral cats and

ACA is a membership based organisation with members in the
UK, Europe and The Gambia.

out and marked on their skin for future identification. From
here it is released back to the environment where the animal
