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.
A BIG thank you to the Kamelia Ferry Lines on Paxos who have very kindly offered 5% of every ticket purchased to be donated to PAWS during the 2021 season as well as offering free transport to the PAWS teams.
