I was very lucky to have the opportunity to volunteer for PAWS on Paxos and had the most amazing experience. We worked very closely with PAWS volunteers on the island who in the morning would catch cats for us and bring them to the clinic where we would do the surgery. The whole process from capture to release was so smooth and stress free for both us and the cats. There were a couple of cats sadly hit by cars brought to us and it was nice that people knew PAWS was there to help. We also reunited a lost dog with its owner.
It’s hard to find anybody on the island who doesn’t love cats and the hard work from PAWS was clear to see. The majority of the cats seen were in excellent condition due to being well monitored, fed and cared for all year round by such wonderful and passionate people.
I cannot praise the PAWS team enough. My whole trip was very well organised and the work and effort put in by members both on the island and off was incredible. I’ve had the most wonderful time and I’m so happy I have found my little cat paradise. I’m already counting down the hours until I can visit again!
