We get many requests to take in healthy, unwanted pets & strays for various reasons; when people leave the island, kittens/cats picked up off the roads which are otherwise well and managing to survive.
Today this little tabby & white kitten arrived from Kefalas brought in by the colony carer, we think he/she is about 6 weeks of age too traumatized to handle the sex remains a mystery for now. The mother was neutered last weekend this was her last surviving kitten, thankfully no more kittens will be born to an infected mother.… read more . . .
Please watch your cat colonies and cats in this area, we have an animal abuser using a blunt object beating cats to death with blows to the head.
Last night two adults and a kitten from a much loved colony were beaten to death last night, the rest of the bin cats are clearly distressed and afraid. Another was missing and has just been taken to the vet, having been beaten lower down on its body (20/10/16) seen by vet and found to have been in a catfight, not beaten).… read more . . .
We have the following stunning cats/kittens to re home most are vaccinated/micro chipped some have passports if not already neutered we can assist with neutering. Please contact us if you can assist these affectionate loving abandoned cats.
Another family visiting the island distressed to find this little one tossed onto the pavement to die by a bin. 10-14 days old eyes only just open we think it’s a boy, dehydrated/starving they did well to keep him alive until they got to us. 3 hourly bottle feeds, bathed & cuddled up to Mrs Tiger he is doing well screaming in chorus with Mowgli in the pen below! Early days yet but if anyone wants to offer him a home in a months’ time please contact us any donations towards little ones care gratefully accepted.… read more . . .
We have an appeal for our little group of misfits that came into us over the weekend.
Two sets of tourists left the island traumatised spending the weekend either fishing ginger kittens one by one out of boiling wheelie bins, stuffed into cardboard boxes left to die in Kalyves or tabby kittens left ignored by the roadside dying of dehydration sitting on their dead mother in Almyrida. The kind tourists that picked them up spent an agonising 2 days dodging hotel staff whilst trying to find someone to help.… read more . . .
This affectionate girl was seen by one of our volunteers outside a mini market in Kokkino Chorio, she was begging for food but mutilated from acid/toilet cleaner being thrown deliberately into her face.
Allegedly the sub human who did this was irritated that his own cat’s food was being eaten by this starving girl. This happened approximately a week ago (@Good Friday) & she was left in agony from the toxic substance burning her eye/sinuses/paws causing irreparable damage & infection.
Our dedicated & tireless vets have removed her eye & started treatment for the infection. … read more . . .
26th March 2016: a few days ago Teddy was reviewed by George and due to his stress ulcer and his vastly improved condition it was decided that he was ready to return to the olive groves of Tsivaris, his jaw brace was removed. He had quite a crowd to see him off and didnt hang around looking for his next meal!
On Friday 26th February this poor boy was found unconscious, bleeding from his ears/mouth by the roadside on the Kefalas/Vamos road.… read more . . .
The Federation (Pan-Hellenic Animal Welfare and Environmental Federation), in its effort to enforce the animal loving idea to the new children, in cooperation with the Municipality of Apokoronas has already started at the schools of the Municipality the presentation of the educational program “Living together with the Animals Around Me”, that Ms Melita Lazaratou created.
Almost all teachers responded to the invitation of the Municipality and our Federation and the young pupils surprised us pleasantly with their knowledge and questions concerning animals.… read more . . .
