What We Do
Neutering Local Cat Populations
We can always use a extra hand in helping the cats of Rhodes, if you have a spare hour or two or even if you have a computer you may be able to help.
We need help for the following
- To trap cats in local areas (a simple & safe process.) We will teach you how to catch feral and stray cats, provide traps and cages, once you have acquired the skills of trapping you can apply to other charities throughout the world to assist them with TNR programs
- To transport cats to the vets for neutering, sickness or injuries . If we do not have the volunteer vet teams working on the TNR program, the neutering of strays and feral cats carry on throughout the cooler months, this is when local volunteers are required to trap cats and take them to a recommended vet.
- To raise money by holding table tops, coffee mornings, quiz nights, etc During the off season / winter months when there are no longer any tourists, fund raising is a priority as GCWS would not survive and continue with the TNR program without funds. The events have proven to be great fun and bring communities together, they also help the locals to understand what our aims are for neutering the feral cats.
- To accommodate an occasional overseas volunteer, off season for a week or so . Twice a year we have vet volunteer teams that come out to work on the TNR program, basically it would become extremely expensive if GCWS had to pay for hotel rooms, when this money could be better utilised in the neutering of cats. The volunteers will share, however they do tend to leave very early in the mornings for trapping, this could disturb the family or person offering rooms however GCWS will provide money for a light breakfast.
