Neutering/Sterilisation of stray animals For 3 days at the end of January, (27,28 & 29), Sitia Animal Rescue, working with vets from Förderverein Arche Noah Kreta, ran a sterilisation programme which, focused on cats, was extremely successful. Volunteers (Greek, English and, on the third day, German) managed to catch 113 cats which were neutered by the vet from Arche Noah. 15 dogs were also neutered, and may now be rehomed. These sessions are hugely important, both in keeping the numbers of strays down, and ensuring that stray animals are healthy – they are given a health check while they are anaesthetised. During 2019 nearly 500 cats & dogs were neutered. This is a great achievement for all concerned!
