It is very common for tourist who visit Greece to come across a large number of stray cats that live in streets and by the bins, usually in poor health and not neutered. Those animals are often the result of animal abandoning that is unfortunately still very common in Greece.In the small island of Paxos a small group of volunteers captures and neuters stray cats with the aid of Paxos Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). However, the number of cats that need to be neutered is very large and your support will help us make an even bigger difference by spaying and neutering about 15 cats around Gaios, the capital of Paxos.
Along with neutering stray cats, we want to ensure that we are also addressing the root of the problem, which is lack of education. Therefore, we have designed an informative brochure that we need to print and distribute in every business and household of Paxos island. We hope that this will help us tackle certain misconceptions about neutering, give useful tips about helping strays and of course educate the public on the laws that protect animal rights in Greece.
The printing of the brochure will cost us 200 euros and the rest 400 will go towards vet bills for neutering and treating the animals that your contribution will enable us to help!
We will be happy to take you with us through the process of capturing, treating and releasing the cats with pictures and videos!
