What is crowdfunding?

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Many people are aware of the huge challenge Greece faces with its ever increasing numbers of stray and abandoned cats. The streets of Kalamata are no different. Every year more and more kittens are born and the majority don’t make it beyond a few weeks while the mothers get weaker and sick. These cats urgently need our help to prevent the endless circle of hardship and suffering.

A female cat can have 1-8 kittens per litter and 2-3 litters per year. During her productive life, this cat could have more than 100 kittens! Neutering is the most effective way to reduce the numbers of stray cats.

By raising money to sterilise as many of the cats as possible we can help to prevent the death of so many sick kittens and help the female cats to have safer and healthier lives.

If you can help in any way possible it would be very much appreciated. Any donation, however small, will go a long way to making the lives of these Greek cats more bearable.

    Street cat 19 - The gorgeous Mini. She is the last cat that we are able to neuter until we can raise more funds as the council programme is providing help to other areas in the town. Mini is small but a strong girl who knows her own mind! She was released back to the colony this week and is doing very well. We still need funds to support these lovely cats to maintain a healthy life with worm medication, antibiotics etc so any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you everyone for your support. Without it none of this could have happened.

    Street cat 18 - the very beautiful Sky! So happy to have been able to neuter and vaccinate this pretty girl. She's very shy and sensitive. She will have a much better life now. Thank you all for your continued support.

    Girlie - Street cat number 17. We have been struggling to raise more funds to help neuter the many street cats here in Kalamata so I'm very pleased to say that the local town council have introduced a programme to help. There are many demands on the council's finances however they have helped me with this cat and 4 others for which I am really grateful. I have had to pay for the aftercare medicine myself but it is still wonderful to have had some financial help and support. Thank you again to all who have helped this to happen.

    Me and my husband have just got back from Kalamata and absolutely fell in love with a kitten we found outside our hotel (horizon blu). It breaks my heart to see them fending for themselves. Good luck
