PAWS DONATIONS AND COLLECTION BOXES
When on Paxos, you can donate at the PAWS clinic in Magazia or in the numerous collection boxes in shops and restaurants around the island.
In the UK you can donate through bank transfer, Payal button or if you shop online, by using Easyfundraising - please click here or go to the 'Contact us' page for details.
Each year PAWS raises money in the UK by applying to
various animal organisations for grants. On Paxos, money is raised by fund
raising events and donations from tourists either into our collection boxes or
directly into the PAWS bank account.
The money collected from both sources is primarily for veterinary services at the PAWS clinic in Magazia. We pay the expenses of vet teams or give individual vet doctors an allowance. Although we are given financial help from various sponsors with the purchase of drugs and supplies, our yearly bill is quite substantial so extra fund raising is important.
PAWS is also committed to helping with the winter feeding of cats. This commitment is currently around 3000 euros per year.
In 2017 PAWS arranged for volunteers on Paxos to empty the collection boxes that are distributed around the island in offices, shops and restaurants.
PAWS greatly appreciates all the donations that are made and all the money is put towards improving animal welfare on Paxos.
