This website represents the Dutch set-up foundation Stichting Kattenhulp Griekenland (This means 'Greek Cat Rescue' in Dutch). The foundation started in October 2010 to provide help to stray cats in Greece.
Many many cats all over Greece are in desperate need and are living a short and dangerous and very stressfull life.
A life that means living a continious battle to survive, wondering down the streets. Many are or become sick and/or wounded, constantly looking for food and shelter for themselves and their babies.
The results of cats who are not sterilised are well known: breeding uncontrollably. The consequences are animals that reproduce constantly, while there’s not enough food and care available for all of them. As a result many animals die, especially in winter, when it becomes cold and wet, when diseases like cat flu, starvation, cost many lives

One female cat and her kittens, can reproduce to 5000 cats in only four years!
Our foundation "Greece Cat Rescue" was set up to generate help for Samos’s stray cats.
We organise sterilisations and sterilisation campaigns, and set up other ways of help like food programs.
Since 2015 we have our own shelter, near the village of Pythagorio. Here we help as many as we can sick cats and kittens, wounded cats and kittens, orphan kittens, and any cats and kittens that are in need of help (and there are many!)
Since our start up, we have grown in strength each and every year, and with the help of donations and purchases, more local and overseas volunteers we are now helping more and more cats in Samos each and every day.
We have four main objectives:
* Sterilising of street cats, both male and female
* Wintertime feeding of street cats
* Helping street cats that need emergency help and medical care
* Arranging adoptions of suitable street cats, recovery cats and orphans to new homes
But there is much more to do - We need your help to help the cats of Samos.

Prayer of a stray cat
Please send me somebody who'll care,
I'm tired of running, I'm sick with despair.
My body is aching, it's so racked with pain,
And I pray as I run in the rain,
That someone will love me and give me a home,
A warm cozy bed to call my own.
My last owner neglected me and chased me away,
To rummage in garbage and live as a stray.
But now I'm tired, hungry and cold,
And I'm so afraid that I'll never grow old.
They've chased me with sticks and hit me with stones,
While I run in the streets just looking for bones.
I'm not really bad, please help if you can,
For I have become just a "victim of man!"
I'm wormy and I'm ridden with fleas,
And all I want is an owner to please.
If you find one for me, I'll try to be good,
I won't run away and I'll do as I should.
I don't think I'll make it too long on my own,
Cause I'm getting weak and I'm so all alone.
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry,
Cause I'm so afraid that I'm gonna die.
I've got so much love and devotion to give,
That I should be given a new chance to live.
So PLEASE, PLEASE answer my prayer,
And send me somebody who'll really care
