Helping Island Cats
October 2017

$2390

Contact us about our payment plan option

We will travel to the beautiful Greek island of Skiathos to work with the Skiathos Cat Welfare Association at the island's only shelter and resource for stray cats. We welcome both veterinarians who would like to contribute in a TNR program and general volunteers. Our general volunteers will assist vets in the spay/neuter program in trapping, prep and recovery.

Our contacts all speak English so there is no need to be concerned about a language barrier. No special skills or knowledge are required for the assistance projects. Anyone who has a desire to help is welcome. If you do have special skills in any of these areas, we can find additional ways of incorporating those into the project.

Following our work at the sanctuary, you can relax on the beautiful beaches or enjoy many of the island's adventures, with opportunities in trekking, sea kayaking/canoeing, culture and history and a day trip to the stunning Lalaria Beach and Skiathos Kastro, both only accessible by boat.

We stay in a beautiful family owned bed and breakfast just steps from the beach and a short walk to town, with its own taverna and spectacular views of the ocean.

You will also have the opportunity to take one of the beautiful feline residents back with you to your country of residence. We can provide all of the necessary documentation and assistance.

A portion of proceeds from the trip will also be earmarked for the projects. We also welcome donations below. We've been able to donate veterinary supplies with past donations and continue to work toward providing additional veterinary supplies and other desperately needed items.

Reserve your spot on this trip by registering now. Limit of 8 participants, so register early. Slots are filled on a first come first served basis. A $500 deposit is required for registration.
