Adopting an onsite cat from Skiathos Cat Welfare Association
We currently have about 200 cats in our care. Skiathos Cat Welfare is just a small team of people trying to do a big job. We are URGENTLY seeking kind and loving homes for these special cats. Our website has many pictures of the cats seeking new homes. Some of you may be planning a holiday to Skiathos why not come and meet our cats and offer them a home of their own?
All adopters will be required to complete an adoption agreement and will be subject to a home visit. UK Airlines will not fly animals directly from Skiathos. Other European airlines will fly animals directly from Skiathos, to The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, etc. For UK adoptions maybe you can drive to Amsterdam to collect your cat or we can try to find volunteers to pick up the cats from Amsterdam and bring the cats to the UK.
All cats are spayed / neutered (except for the cats younger than 5 months) tested for feline AIDS and feline leukemia, provided with a passport, vaccinated, micro-chipped and treated for fleas and worms. Airline approved travel boxes will be provided. In the HOPE to get more cats staying in our care adopted to LOVING HOMES the charity will subsidies the ADOPTION FEES, MEANING ADOPTION to The Netherlands will be €220. For other countries the cost will vary due flight or future transport. For UK adoptions an extra cost to get a cat to the UK will be approximately € 200 per cat based on 3 cats together if a volunteer can be found.
Flight escorts are a great way to help a Skiathos Welfare Cat to get a cat to their new home. Being a flight escort involves no extra cost to yourself, so if you are planning a holiday to Skiathos and are allowed to take pets on the return flight please get in contact with our adoption team who can explain how easy the process is.
Have you befriended a cat whilst on holiday and wish to take it home?
We are a very small charity and it is impossible for us to try and find cats when we are contacted after tourists return home. The best advice we can offer you is that whilst you are in Skiathos is to take the cat to the vets to start the pet passport process. There is a minimum wait of 21 days from the vaccination to the travel date which maybe after you have returned home. Sadly Skiathos Cat Welfare is not a shelter we have nowhere to keep the cat safe from roaming, is there someone near to where the cat is based that you could approach for them to care for the cat on your behalf until travel date? How do you get the cat to your home? Perhaps you can return to Skiathos to collect the cat which if traveling to a European destination may be the easiest option. If that is not possible you may then as we do advertise for a flight escort, we are happy to place an advert on Facebook pages to help you out. We can advise you on suitable travel cages that the airlines require. As a charity we are subsidizing our adoption costs to encourage offers of new homes to our onsite cats, your costs will vary. We are here to advise you on what to do.
Adoption of a Skiathos Cat Welfare Cat is easier than you think and you will see from our photographs there are many loving cats that you could offer a new life to, a loving home of their own is their biggest wish.
