Story

THIS CHARITY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME, WE CAME UPON THE CHARITY BY CHANCE 7 YEAR AGO WHILE HOLIDAYING IN SKIATHOS.MY HUSBAND AND I FELL IN LOVE WITH A LITTLE KITTEN IN OUR HOTEL

AS THE WEEK WENT ON WE REALISED WE COULD NOT LEAVE THIS KITTEN TO FEND FOR ITSELF RISKING INJURY OR STARVATION AS IT WAS END OF SEASON AND THE HOTEL WAS CLOSING FOR THE WINTER. WE ASKED AROUND AND DISCOVERED SHARON, THE INSPIRATION BEHIND SCWA, WE RETURNED TO THE UK AND LEFT OUR KITTEN (THEO) IN SHARONS CARE FOR 8 MONTHS UNTIL WE RETURNED TO TAKE HIM HOME,

WHEN WE RETURNED WE SAW FIRST HAND THE COMMITMENT, HARD WORK AND ENDLESS HOURS SHARON AND HER VOLUNTEERS PUT IN, AND MOST OF ALL THE LOVE AND CARE THEY GIVE. THE CHARITY ALSO FEEDS, NEUTERS ,AND PROVIDES MEDICATION FOR THE STRAY CATS ON THE ISLAND ALL YEAR ROUND.

RIGHT NOW THE CHARITY IS IN CRISIS, THE PROPETY WHERE THE CHARITY AND THE CATS ARE BASED IS UP FOR SALE, LEAVING THE 150+ CATS, SOME BLIND SOME INJURED, KITTENS SO TINY THEY NEED ROUND THE CLOCK BOTTLE FEEDING FACING A LIFE ON THE STREETS,

TIME IS RUNNING OUT. THIS IS AN URGENT APPEAL, PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY, AS ANY DONATION LARGE OR SMALL WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THEY NEED YOUR HELP TO FIND AND PURCHASE NEW ACCOMMODATION TO HOUSE AND CARE FOR ALL THESE CATS AND SECURE THE FUTURE OF THE CHARITY. TO DATE THE CHARITY HAS NEUTERED OVER 6000 CATS FUNDED BY DONATIONS AND THEY FEED AND CARE FOR STRAYS 365 DAYS A YEAR, VISIT THE WEBSITE FOR MORE INFORMATION. https://www.skiathos-cats.org/
