The work of VOCAL 

 

  • VOCAL has dozens of feeding areas for cats in and around the villages of Elounda and Agios Nikolaos.
  • They are replenished EVERY DAY, winter and summer, rain or shine.
  • We use over 30kg of cat food EVERY WEEK.
  • VOCAL provides treatments to protect against parasites,we monitor for sickness and injury and identify those in need of neutering.
  • VOCAL runs a neutering programme throughout the year.Between October 2006 and May 2008 VOCAL has sterilized almost 600 cats.  This number continues to grow as our work is ongoing.
  • VOCAL rescues and cares for orphaned kittens and sick or injured cats in volunteers' homes.
  • VOCAL finds homes for kittens or older cats that cannot cope with a free living life.  Some are rehomed on Crete, but many go to new homes in Germany, Switzerland or Holland.
  • VOCAL provides advice and support for all aspects of cat ownership, on care and treatment of owned cats, or for people who are supporting free living cats in their neighbourhood.
  • VOCAL campaigns for greater understanding and tolerance of cats in the community.
  • VOCAL supports local hotels and encourages them to work with us in providing feeding areas for cats and notices for holiday makers.
