It’s been a busy autumn of TNR in Syros with We Live Together and Syros Cats! A large number of cats have found shelter in a messy, scarce area near the marina in Lazareta. They are lucky to be visited frequently by their guardian angel, Aliki, but they were clearly in need of neutering to stop […]
Our work on Syros island continues in collaboration with We Live Together clinic. The team decided to head to a village which hasn’t been visited for a long time – Azolimnos. This is the closest village to Hermoupolis, where the team have been trapping, neutering and releasing since the winter in preparation for breeding season. […]

We’re proud to be working on Syros for a third consecutive year, committing to sterilise 40 cats every single month – a number that is already making a real impact in the remote, mountainous village of Livohori in Syros.

Despite 2020 being one of the most challenging years we’ve faced as a charity, we were still able to reach well over 1000 animals across Greece for veterinary care, sterilisation or treatment, including 817 cats, 205 dogs and 129 equidae (horses, donkeys and mules)…
