This is a monthly fundraiser for a very difficult colony in Agios Athanasios, at a cemetery in Limassol. The name of this place was Hell Colony for a decade now, until last 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 a 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 these cats plus new ones every month without help... We have lost count of how many cats there are there, because other than the 60-70 that show up to eat daily, there are cats that are afraid, and only show up to eat at night.
We need your help!
Hi guys, these are difficult times for everyone with the war going on, humane and economic, i am honestly really concerned, but all i can do is focus on helping these poor abandoned furry souls, who have no blame of being born and then left to suffer at this cemetery. So, I want to say a huge thank you to those who support us, and continue to do so every month. We surely 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. Good news is that Summer is here and the hunger goes down, but on the other hand the volume of kittens being abandoned is huge, i have already 13 kittens that need special kitten food, because they were ripped apart suddenly from their mothers. Kittens can't survive there so i try to find foster homes or even take few my self. Us the vollunteers pay mostly the medical bills and the fundraiser is used mostly for food, spot ons, deworming pills, antibiotics and if we have extra for TNR(currently around 10-15 kitties left to TNR) and spraying for fleas which costs us 100 EUR per month.The medical bills are high because young kittens are mostly abandoned there and they usually need to spend a week at the vet because they get sick very fast there. That is why, we urgently need to buy vaccines! Please, donate if you can and share this to continue taking care of them. Sincerely,
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 200 in reserve for emergency veterinary care - 300 covers dry food, 200 wet food, and 200 we save for vet bills, because there is always some surprise for me, with a cat that needs hospitalization so that is the minimum amount fovet bills each month. 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! And of course there is always TNR wating to be done
We have tried to reason with the municipality to give us some food or neuterings but they refused. In 2 years the mayor will change so we hope something good will happen when he leaves. For now, we are on our own.
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.
worms is our worst fear during summer, so deworming pills are always a must
Summer is here, the area will be full of fleas so spot ons are most important than ever
As soon as kittens are abandoned there they must be vaccinated to avoid catching diseases
12 cans are enough to feed 1 time a week
around 5-6 males left to neuter
Around 8 females are left to TNR
