Animal Welfare Under Attack

Postby The Cats Pyjamas Rescue » Mon Nov 20, 2017 7:48 pm

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.
Our clinic is one of the few still working on the island now threatened with closure due to those whose only concern is their fragile ego and own personal gain, giving no thought to the consequences of their appalling behaviour and puerile accusations.Image
Imagine going back to the days neutering only if you could afford to fund it yourself, the legion of starving, sick, abused, dead and dying animals we had in Apokoronas left to fend for themselves. We exist solely due to our volunteers good will and hard work, the professionalism and compassion of our vets, the tireless work of our mayor and his colleagues supporting animal welfare.
External forces nationwide want to prevent volunteer vets from working in Greece this has been happening for some time. It has now been brought out into the open by our Chania colleagues those with influence are trying to find a way forward and open constructive dialogue the goal is to reinstate the neutering of strays and cease the persecution of foreign vets.
You have a voice use it

The stance taken by the authorities in Xania is almost impossible to understand :roll:

Totally impossible to understand! Apart from the welfare of the animals which is of utmost importance, who wants to go on holiday and see lots of sick, injured dying animals in the streets? This put me off Tarifa in Spain many years ago. Couldn't believe there were so many skinny sick animals, dogs and cats just falling over and dying. Just awful! So terrible for the animals and bad for tourism and the reputation of the island! Just madness!
