A huge thank you to everyone involved in the neutering sessions! So many gave their time & hard work to make this work. Special thanks go to Bev & Sarah, Melanie & Sue, Kathie & her cook team for the amazing food, Tassos for all his hard work at the clinic. Goes without saying we could not do any of this without Arche Noah & the support of the Dimos.
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.
The Municipality of Apokoronas obeys faithfully the legislative ordinances of stray animals’ well-being and protection, as piece of our culture’s evidence. After my assumption of duties regarding the handling of stray animals, in partnership with the Mayor Mr. Har. Koukianakis, we set in motion the below actions:
Animal Welfare in Apokoronas is under attack from internal and external forces if you care for the health and well-being of our strays you need to help by signing the petitions, forwarding it to everyone you can and supporting our neutering programme against those who would malign our work.
