Does this mean that foreign veterinarians will be obsolete and the stray problem too?

Greek Veterinary Society Boycott’s Animal Healthcare

Over the coming days, a number of volunteer vets from abroad are coming to the island of Lesvos, Greece, for neutering/spaying FOR FREE hundreds of stray animals, AS THEY DID LAST YEAR (see the video & pictures above). The Greek Veterinary Society and its local branch of Lesvos are reacting: they claim that the proper procedures have not been followed thus they threat to press charges against all those involved if the programme goes ahead. These threats are both illegal and immoral. If the Greek vets are really interested in the well-being of the stray animals, then they should HELP in the free neutering/spaying programme rather than BOYCOTT it on procedural grounds! Join us in asking the Greek Veterinary Society and it local branch of Lesvos, Greece, to change its stance and to: Stop threatening the local animal welfare groups and the foreign volunteer vets who will neuter/spay FOR FREE the stray animals of Lesvos.

    Παρά το διαφαινόμενο αδιέξοδο στη Λέσβο, η εκστρατεία μας φαίνεται να έχει επιπτώσεις γενικότερα για την Ελλάδα. Χτες (18/7) ο Πανελλήνιος Κτηνιατρικός Σύλλογος ανακοίνωσε ότι προχωρά στη δημιουργία ενός δικτύου εθελοντών κτηνιάτρων για τη στείρωση αδέσποτων ζώων. Τα πράγματα αλλάζουν- και αυτό οφείλεται στη δική σας βοήθεια και συμπαράσταση. Συνεχίστε να υπογράφετε και να προωθείτε την έκκλησή μας.
    Σας ευχαριστώDear friends,
    Despite the apparent deadlock on Lesvos, our campaign seems to have impacts for the whole of Greece. Yesterday (July 18) the Greek Veterinary Association announced that it is establishing a network of Greek volunteer vets for neutering/spaying stray animals. Things are changing-and this is due also to your help and support. Please keep signing and forwarding our call.
