Help Strays in Crete
In the Apokoronas district of West Crete there is a big problem with stray cats and dogs. The council has bravely led on helping these strays but the lack of suitable premises and the increasing number of abandoned animals is affecting the current program and could possibly threaten completely future efforts.
The municipality was the first in Western Crete to develop a program to help strays, in partnership with charities and local vetinarians, for which we are grateful. But we also recognise that in the current difficult times the council have a great number of issues to deal with and we hope that a well supported petition will persuade them to keep this as one of areas they will continue to address.
If you visit Crete, and especially if you live here, we are asking for your support.
thank the Mayor and the council for their efforts to date. Now residents plus the many regular visitors to our municipality urge them
to take the necessary actions towards establishing suitable premises so that they can continue the
neutering program that has been so successful. This will help our stray cats
and dogs and make our district an even better place to live or holiday
