Τhe only fire that should burn is the one in our hearts, no other. All donors will be officially announced the following days.
We would like to update all about our latest news :)
the colonies are under control, no cats or dogs on vet anymore, we did everything that was possible to find good homes for the cats and dogs that where victims of fire and yet co-operated and show an adoptable character, and now for the first time they will have their first Christmas in a warm and lovely home. I would like to thank anyone of you who opened his door and his hug for those animals. Now we have to face the winner, the colonies are under control through the huge effort of adespotologio.gr for neutering/spaying in colaboration with Felina Greece, now we are facing the most basic problem every cat colony suffers ... the food. We Kindly ask you for cat dry food, of medium and economic quality we are feeding at the moment "smile" cat food from the economy series https://www.zooplus.com/shop/cats/dry_cat_food/smilla, Kindly ask you to send dry food , or donate here for cat dry room, the winter is impossible without resources of food. Thank you all once again ;) and many wishes for Happy Holidays
We thought we were forgotten, and today a lovely mail from chiphandel.de poped up. They donating to our cause 80 microchips. This means a lot to us since we have an adoption program for most of our rescues.
We are very happy to announce that Tica donate to our cause the amount of 1664 euros =2000 Dollars.
Thanks to the Tica Judge Kurt Vlach who proposed and endorse our cause to Tica council, and all people who voted positive for this donation we are able to fully pay the breathing supporting system for the animals with breathing problems.
Again is really important for us every penny. Our Campaign expires soon and we have to deal with a winter at a very lonely isolated and burnt area with few resources and many animals.
A month and a week after the wildfires , most of cats and wild animals recovered, we made a small network with locals and helped us find some of the families of the cats, and for feral cats they helped us recolate them to safety. Also very important is the feeding system we made to those areas, more than 400 kg of cat food and 200 kg of mixed dog food over the past month supplied from you through your donations to the volunteers that were feeding.
Also we are planning ahead for the winter. Since Mati area is mainly a summer destination with few people living there on winter days, we made a big order of pet food. For those days. It was surprisingly enough that local pet food companies didn't support our cause. But if the campaign reach the goal, we could deal with winter supplies too.
We still have 14 cats and one dog in the clinic, today we returned 27.
We are very proud to announce that we didn't lose any of them , even the serious , all cats and dogs are alive and healing happily.
The big challenge we had face is the respiratory problems. For example we see at 10.00 am a cat feeding her self at the feeding station , she is not burnt or injured and she looks a normal feral cat that survived the wildfire. At 11:14 few meters below we find the same cat struggling to breath and laid down on the street. We collected her and she passed two days in oxygen and two weeks of antibiotics.
So the vets said we should collect every cat take them to clinics for check up and that is how we end with so many cats under our protection.
We have ten days to close the fundraising page,we are very far from our goal,we should stop the missions 9 days ago but we had promosories from some funds from abroad. We operated last weekend with a promissory to the vets that we are co operating, I'm very happy we could finally catch this poor soul, she was to scares and we couldn't approach him all these days. We can not say yet why this cat is like that,was from the fire?was from a dog fight? Cancern? We took him and we were able to took 9 more injured cats. Let's hope for the best please don't forget us, every day we found more serious injuries,scared animals us very difficult to find them and take them to safety.
On Saturday NartArt photography donated her services and photo shoot for free, 4paw victims of wildfire. Puppies were happy, they were moving their tail happily, cats where scared and dramatic. Our heart broke. It was very very hard to see survivors posing. And it takes courage to photo them.
I would like to personally thank Anastasia the photographer for this kind gesture. He work was amazing, her contact with the rescued animals also so tender and careful. I really hope this action will help all the animals to find a forever home. In case you are interested to adopt a rescued puppy or kitten please contact me at [email protected]
Thank you all very much for believing in our cause.
We are doing our best not let those 4 leg souls down.
Traditionally August is the month of our vacation,but we needed here to help and support so we stayed, 26 rescued cats until now,two successful adoptions this week made us all so emotional and gave us courage to go on. An other operation at Nea Makri and Mati area,to dewarm the mysterious colony of kittens,and to collect 11 more injured cats. We whish we could have a bigger transportation to carry more animals. On the weekend we are planning a professional photoshoot for the rescued. Stay with us for news and updates. Please forward this fundraising page to anyone who can help,without your help we can not afford the next rescuing operation. Thank you all.
