Our next sterilization project will take place in the beginning of November (9, 10 and 11) and the only way to manage it is your generous help. Any amount of money from animal – loving people out there is most welcome.
ABOUT US and our GOAL
We are a group of volunteers based on the Greek island of Amorgos in the Cyclades region of Greece.
Our activities include:
Health care for stray cats:
In Amorgos there is no permanent veterinarian. Until there is a veterinarian on our island, we must either send them by ferry to the nearby island of Naxos, or we must arrange a visit from the vet, if need be. We then take care of them ourselves and release them back to their neighborhood once they are healthy again or we do our best to find our cats a home. Sometimes we succeed instantly, other times it takes a while. Whatever the case, we make sure our cats are happy.
Every summer we invite our veterinarian and with him we roam the island and make sure we vaccinate as many stray cats as possible.
Every year we visit the schools of Amorgos and through presentations and interactive games we try to inform our pupils of diverse subjects, such as just treatment of animals, animal abuse and adoption programs.
Twice a year we organize sterilization projects for the stray cats of Amorgos. We get help either from local or international volunteers while at the same time we try to find proper funding in order to pay everything necessary, as this is our biggest and most important project. Even more so when one thinks of the numerous cats that live on the island and whose welfare depends solely on us and the few people who help us.
there are still people who are against neutering cats (even though
they do nothing to help feed them or provide health care for them),
we have adopted the global animal welfare community's recognition of
neutering as the only approved method of controlling the stray
population. Moreover, when we have to watch animals getting run over
by cars or searching for food in the garbage bins, when we must
resuscitate them when they have been poisoned or burry them when it
has been too late, we realize that we still have a long way to go.
If we do want to continue with our work and organize two sterilization projects per year, we must seek more ways of funding. The cost of four projects (covering about 250 cats) is 4000 euro, and therefore we are creating a new campaign to raise this sum. Our next project takes place in the beginning of November and any amount of money from animal – loving people out there is most welcome.
