Paxos Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) specific objectives are to increase veterinary care on Paxos, continue to support winter feeding of the island's cats and to pursue our education programme.
PAWS was founded by Lindsay Geddes and Linda Parker in 2005 and since then has succeeded in making a substantial difference to animal welfare on Paxos.
Since Linda retired in 2011, PAWS is currently run by its Director Lindsay Geddes from her home in Sussex, England. Click here for more details about who we are.

DOG and CAT NEUTERING VOUCHER SCHEME continues for 2022
PAWS will donate vouchers towards cat and dog neutering at either the Paxos vet clinic or the Fontana vet clinic where a further discount is available.
PLEASE, PLEASE take advantage of this scheme to prevent unwanted dogs, puppies and kittens being abandoned.
We are delighted that once again in 2021 Greek Animal Rescue has donated £3000 towards dog neutering and Greek Cat Welfare Society has donated £2000 towards cat neutering.
