What We Do
Neutering Local Cat Populations
(TNR) trap, neuter & return cat to place of origin . This helps in controlling local populations.
Donate time for the following
- To trap local cats (a simple & safe process.) We will teach you how to catch feral & stray cats, provide traps & 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 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.
- Raise money by holding table tops, coffee mornings, quiz nights 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 locals understand what our aims are for neutering 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, they do tend to leave very early in the mornings for trapping, this could disturb the family or person offering rooms however we will provide money for a light breakfast.
