£1,940raised of £2,000 target by 58 supporters

Weʼre raising £2,000 to support Tala Monastery Cat Park, Cyprus and help with the huge vet bills, especially after having so many kittens left outside the gates.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

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

Story

The cat park is managed by Dawn and Mark Foote, who set it up in 2011 after moving the resident cats from the nearby Agios Neofytos Monastery, and now has over 800 residents! It is run entirely by volunteers, who receive no government funding at all. They rely on donations and sponsorship of the cats to keep going and their annual running costs are in excess of €50,000! This includes costs for food, medication, vet bills, a programme of spaying and neutering and maintenance costs at the cat park. Every penny/cent of all donations goes to the cats and their welfare, with none of the staff taking any money at all.

Funds are already very low and additional cats and kittens are being dumped regularly, usually without a donation. Dawn and Mark are struggling to keep their heads above water and now have additional stress with more kittens and cats being left on an almost daily basis. Please, if you are able to, donate to this very worthy cause.

If you would like to know more about the cat park then visit their website at www.talamonasterycats.com . If you are in Cyprus then please do visit the cat park, which is open daily between 1000-1400, where the staff and cats would love to see you (especially if you bring treats for them!). They are always looking for volunteers too, so if you would like to help out I am sure that they would appreciate your help, even if it is only for an hour or two.
