    Together we concluded one more successful spay/neuter program! 

    Scroll below to see photos of the program, the full list of sponsors and the names of all the wonderful volunteers who helped. 

  •  The Spring Spay/Neuter program ran from 27-31 of March, 2022  and was followed immediately after by a week long education campaign. The campaign targeted elementary school and junior high school students from across the island of Karpathos. AWK is thankful for all the donations and sponsorships received, as without the support of the donors and businesses this program would not have been possible. The total cost covered via the donations AWK receives throughout the year was 3328.23 euros. This amount was used for the purchase of  all the necessary medications, anesthetics and medical consumables. The Greek Cat Welfare Society covered the medical/liability license for the UK vet and nurses, whereas individual/business donors (see below) covered other important costs of the program such as airfair etc. It is important to note, that without the generous services provided by restaurants and hotel sponsors (see below), the costs for Animal Welfare Karpathos would have been much higher. For this reason, we are thankful for everyone who joined forces to make this campaign a success.
