Skiathos Cat Welfare Association (SCWA), is a non profit organisation providing veterinary care, neutering and food to the stray cats of Skiathos. Skiathos Cat Welfare is not a cat sanctuary or shelter, we have been helping the cats on the island since 2005.

The main purpose of the organisation is to:

  • Foster a general awareness throughout the local community on the plight of stray cats
  • Engage the local, and international community on issues regarding stray cat welfare
  • Make partnerships with various organizations to further expand opportunities to improve the wellbeing of the local stray cat population.
  • Provide neutering programmes to supplement the muncipality neutering scheme. The charity neuters around 500 cats a year. We apply yearly to the Brigitte Bardot Foundation and have been well supported by the highly respected worldwide charity.
  • Raise funds and to invite and receive donations to facilitate the provision of food, medication, and veterinary care. This can be locally, via social media and individualsĀ raising donations.
  • Actively promote and encourage adoptions
