New in the adopt a cat program.
SUPPORT A SPAY.
This to help stop the brith of pups that are not wanted.
Dog owners on the island mostly have more than 2 dogs
and most of them can not afford to have them sterilized
so every year they'll end up with pups they don't want.
These pups are dumped somewhere or killed directly after birth.
To stop this from happening we can use your help.
€40,- will help to get 1 dog spayed
Next week (1-12-2013) we'll cellibrate 1 year Adopt a cat.
We'll give you an update of what has been done.
Thank you for helping us.
Now (half of Nov.) we see a lot of cats that are used to people
and used to live inside houses
that are trying to find food and shelter elsewhere.
Please help us help them, Thank you
This month (Nov.) started out with broken and paralised legs..
Up untill now we did a healthcheck, teath check,
sterilisation and vaccination for about 150 cats.
these cats are all being taken care of on kythira
or have found a new home abroad.
Thank you all for your help
Last week (beginning of September) we neutered 10 cats
from Pitsinades. 1 of them found a new home in Athens.
This week we'll neuter 11 cats from Pelagia and
4 cats from Frilianika.
we also neutered a dog from Xora and are looking for
new homes for 8 dogs. 4 dogs off 3 months old,
1 dog off 6 months and 3 off a year old.
110 cats are now sterilised and vaccinated,
we found new homes for a lot of them.
There are requests from a few villages
on the island to sterilise and vaccinate the cats.
Up untill now we sterilised about
60 cats all around the island. Kapsali /
A. Pelagia / A. Patrikia / Potamos / Mitata
if you see a cat with a slightly cut left ear,
you know this cat is sterilised and vaccinated
The cats in A. Partikia have been sterilized.
There are still some kittens we'll do them
These cats also need support.
We counted the cats in Agia Pelagia (60)
and gonna start with the sterilisation
