This is a fundraiser for a very difficult colony in Agios Athanasios, Limassol. The name of this place was Hell Colony for a decade now, until this year. The cats deserve a better name, but those dropped off here are often doomed. Whether by the hand of man or by disease that arrived with an sick, abandoned animal...
This work is overwhelming and it often seems there is no end in sight for abandonings at this colony. The 2-3 people who help here cannot afford to take care of all the cats plus 30 new ones every month without help... This is nearly half the number that Tala Cats receives without any of the structure or support - just to illustrate the picture.
We need your help!
Hi guys, here we are this month asking for your support again. We could not have done this without you, since this colony is like a shelter at a cemetery, and people in Cyprus treat it as such. But we are not a shelter, we are just individuals fighting on our own.This last week only, 7 kittens and 5 adult cats were abandoned there. A kitten was ready to die, and she is now at the vet fighting for her life. We have now 20 kittens at foster homes, and last night 3 more were abandoned there. Unfortunately, i have no time to post all of this on facebook because i have a full time job and all i do later is to take care of them. I have already mentioned in previous posts that i personally cut off most of my personal expenses to take care of them. The rest of the vollunteers coming there are already supporting other colonies in Limassol, therefore not able to help financially. So, i am asking for your help to continue doing this. Most of them are much healthier now, but with all the new cats coming in, it is impossible to keep a balance. Thank you for being a ray of light to the suffering life of the fluffies.
Your support makes a difference!
Your help will cover food and medical care for these cats.
Spot-ons (the fleas and ticks pass diseases), deworming pastes, medicines, medical care for cats with the flu. We need 500 in reserve for emergency veterinary care - last month our total fundraised was 310 - this covered only food. All vet and medical care was covered by the very few volunteers and everyone is completely spent. Nutrition is important - without proper food the cats cannot fight diseases that are brought here again and again, but medical care for the currently sick ones is also important as they pass it to the rest of the colony!
While you make this a little bit easier, we work towards cleaning out this colony and working with the powers that be to change this situation. We are pushing the municipality to offer at least some dry food and sterilizations. It will take some more time but we are hoping it will happen soon.
We can also accept food, medicines, spot-ons, deflea liquids (sebacyl).
Thank you all for any amount donated.
We are also looking for more help - 10 to 20 people. If you are in Agios Athanasios area, or would be willing to come feed or be involved, please get in touch here: https://www.facebook.com/demetra.demetriou or 99228874 or http://www.facebook.com/mashayakovenko.
