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.
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 help with the purchase of drugs and supplies, we still have a substantial outlay – in 2016 the bill was over 15,000 euros.
PAWS is also committed to helping with the winter feeding of cats. This commitment is currently set at 3000 euros per year and will remain the same for 2017/18.
In 2017 PAWS has 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.
A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE
