Skiathos zwerfkatten Kittens

Skiathos katten kittens vrijwilliger!

4 juni ga ik een week als vrijwilliger aan de slag bij Skiathos Cat Welfare Association! Ik ga daar een week lang mijn steentje bijdragen aan alle 200 katten en de vele kittens die Sharon Hewing in haar eigen huis opvangt, ook het dagelijks voeren van de katten die in kolonies leven op het eiland zal een onderdeel van de dag worden. Mijn vliegticket en mijn verblijf heb ik zelf gekostigd en dat is mijn bijdrage die ik doe, maar ik zou ook heel graag nog wat geld ophalen omdat deze organisatie geheel afhankelijk is van gifts en donaties...  dus alle donaties, hoe klein ze ook zijn, zijn van harte welkom.......

Skiathos Cat Welfare is not a cat shelter or indeed a sanctuary the charity is based at the home of Sharon Hewing where there is currently 150+ plus free roaming cats, cats with disabilities for instance blindness who could not survive on the streets. Our greatest wish is to relocate the charity and its cats to a suitable area in Skiathos, with is safe and secure.

In the meantime neutering is our NO 1 priority. Around the Island various volunteers feed in excess of 300 cats, that’s a huge amount of food which takes up the majority of our regular donations. These strays are also treated for any medical needs We actively seek donations towards neutering and in 2014 the highly respected Brigit Bardot Foundation granted us a donation to neuter 200 cats over the summer period. Neutering has to be a continual large scale process if we are to stabilise the stray cat population. In 2015 with the help of volunteer vets and help from the resident vets Skiathos Cat Welfare achieved the fantastic figure of  7000 cats neutered since 2005, just think how many unwanted kittens have been prevented from being born into a life of hardship.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT. URGENT APPEAL! 150+ cats, including kittens and blind cats are losing their home. SAVE US FROM THE STREETS
Skiathos Cat Welfare Association is facing a huge crisis and we urgently need financial help!
The charity is facing an urgent CRISIS. ALL TOO SOON these CATS will have NOWHERE to go. We HAVE to RELOCATE them from their current location 
There are around 150+ cats and 30 or more kittens that need shelter, warmth and security. There are also blind cats to consider, who have always had the security of being indoors,Therefore, we have to find a solution to secure the future of the charity and the cats of Skiathos. Not only for now, but for years and hopefully generations to come.
In order to do this, we are looking for funds to secure the future of the charity. Not only for the cats already in our care but also for the Skiathos cats in need that have yet to cross our path.

Unfortunately, renting a property in Skiathos has proven not to be an option with the amount of cats and the legal regulations that are required. This will only leave us with three options: getting land donated, purchasing land or purchasing land with suitable buildings (that conform to Greek law so that it can get the official recognition as a shelter)
However, HUGE funds are needed to secure the future of the charity.
We currently have 3 options


1. Land donated
We have formally asked the municipality to actively seek land that can either be donated or offered at a nominal rent. We would then need to make this land safe with adequate fencing, provide sheltered areas for the cats, separate area for kittens and blind cats water tank, storage, manual labour to install and more. Costings estimated on this is circa €40,000

2. Purchase land
If every avenue has been exhausted to obtain donated land, then a major investment would be needed to purchase land on behalf of the charity. We would again need to make sure this land is safe with adequate fencing, provide sheltered areas for the cats, separate area for kittens and blind cats water tank, storage, manual labour to install and more. Costings estimated on this is circa €140,000

3. Purchase land with building already in situ
This option would need a major investment but would be the best long term solution for the safety and security of the charity and the cats of Skiathos for generations to come. This could provide a quarantine area, kitten nursery, accommodation for volunteers, vet room, laundry room, larger living area for the cats. Legal work and so on This could be anywhere from €200,000 plus

For anyone that has not heard about the fantastic work of the Skiathos Cat Welfare Association, here is a brief summary:
Skiathos Cat welfare has helped the needy cats of Skiathos since 2005, becoming a Greek registered charity in 2011 (registration number 2177/2011)
During this time, the charity has neutered over 7,000 cats, provided food 365 days a year to over 300 cats around the island, plus the 150+ in the charity's care. We also provide medical care to the street cats of Skiathos. All this is paid from donations from tourists visiting the Island, monthly donations from supporters, our online gift sales and auctions and food donations from our online food store. This generosity allows us to function on a month to month basis. We do not receive any Government funding! From October 2016 to October 2017 the charity neutered 646 cats with the kind help of volunteer vets, vet nurse, local and international volunteers and kind donations.
Sharon Hewing has given her time 365 days a year and provided a safe place for the cats and kittens in her own home! As a charity we urgently need to secure a future and provide a place for the cats and kittens. Not just as a short term solution but one that is sustainable for many years to come. Due to changes at the current location the cats now have very little protection against bad weather, making cats and kittens already vulnerable even more so, and they will soon have no place at all.
