Marin Friends of Ferals
(MFF) will be traveling to Mykonos, Greece, at the end of May to begin a TNR program (Trap-Neuter-Return) to help end the suffering of hundreds of animals, including feral and domestic cats abandoned on the island.
We're fortunate In Marin County to have the resources to spay/neuter our community cats and provide for their ongoing care. But in Mykonos it's a different story. WHY NOW?
Greece's economic crisis is worsening, impacting everyone, including animals. Because family incomes have been cut, fewer resources mean many residents can no longer care for their pets. As a result, animals are being abandoned to fend for themselves.
MFF plans to bring a local veterinarian and 2 volunteers to help conduct a mass week-long spay/neuter program. A vet on the island offered use of his clinic and our contacts living there will help collect the animals (both dogs and cats) for sterilization.WE ARE TAKING THE FIRST STEP TOWARD A BETTER, HUMANE LIFE FOR THE ANIMALS OF MYKONOS.
MFF will provide ongoing support for spay/neuter costs and continued supplies of urgently needed pet food for residents feeding forgotten felines and abandoned dogs dependent on them for survival. WE BELIEVE ALL CREATURES DESERVE A LIFE FREE FROM SUFFERING.
Granted, the situation for animals in Mykonos is daunting and we're only a small nonprofit. But that shouldn't (and won't) prevent us from trying to make a positive impact on the lives of these animals that desperately need help.
We've raised over half the amount we need for this lifesaving mission but now we could use your help in our remaining weeks of fundraising.
As the saying goes, "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." MFF is ready to begin that journey in Mykonos. Will you help us take that first step?
