Stray animal feeding permit

Hi everyone we hope your all healthy & keeping sane!

We have been asked by the Dimos to provide the details of all volunteers who go out and feed the stray cats on a regular basis. One permit covers you for all trips so it will be less paperwork for all of us in the long run.

If you wish to be included or regularly receive donated food from us please supply the following information:
Name, date of birth, passport number, your address, location of feeding sites, days of the week, a time you feed them (once a day only within a three hour period).

They will email you the permit to print out and keep. Until your permits arrive carry on using the Extraordinary Movement Permit. The new permit is restricting feeding to once a day only within a three hour period. Mr Stavros Stavroulakis (Deputy Mayor, Apokoronas) is completing the permits as best he can, we will all have to change our practices till this is over.

We have started handing out donated food but have now run out, we are in the process of ordering more but obviously this may take time. As soon as the delivery arrives we will let you know.



We have an appeal for this little five month old female ‘Bambi’ who was taken in suffering from cat flu by a dedicated cat lover from Kalyves. After further xrays & blood tests Bambi was found not to have been run over but to have nasty infections of both ears probably from ear mites left untreated (feline otitis) causing her head tilt and balance problems (vestibular disease).

With antibiotics Bambi’s condition is improving, her balance/head tilt is getting better, she will need to continue the antibiotics for some time & may be left with some minor disability (clumsy/lack of balance) but it will not affect her quality of life. She runs, jumps, plays and is very affectionate, she craves human company and loves other cats, she is being neutered this week and will be vaccinated and micro chipped.

Please contact us if you can give her a home or help in any way.

Pet travel to UK

Nothing will change for your pet before the end of the transition period on 31 December, but what happens afterwards depends on what is negotiated in the next 11 months. At present, dogs, cats and ferrets can travel freely across the EU on an EU pet passport, under the EU pet travel scheme.

Arche Noah Kreta Chania

Between 10 and 11 January a two days neutering session of 26 stray animals of the Municipality of Chania was successfully completed by the vet Melanie Stehle member of the association Arche Noah Kreta e.V. : 19 female and 2 male stray cats and 5 female stray dogs from various areas of Chania, where it is a fact that the problem is intense because of the continuous abandonment and uncontrolled breeding, in particular from the areas of Agia, Perivolia, Pasakaki, Nerokourou, Chrisopigi, Akrotiri, Kounoupidiana and from the center of the city.
