Helping Abandoned Animals in Corfu
CARE is a Charity started 11 years ago when eight puppies were found close to death in a dustbin. All were nursed back to health and subsequently, literally thousands of animals have been re-homed either in Greece, Germany, Austria or the UK.
CARE presently has a small shelter near Sidari, situated in the north of the Island. With limited space and facilities, this means we sadly cannot take in all the reported strays but CARE has a mobile unit and along with groups of volunteers, CARE has set up feeding stations and the sterilization of these animals wherever possible.
The CARE sanctuary offers temporary lodging for these animals whilst new homes are sourced. The animals are also checked by the vet, and as far as possible any medical requirements are administered.
CARE presently operates a very successful castrating and neutering programme to diminish the hundreds of unwanted puppies on the Island. They also have a CARE van which helps to collect the strays which are then taken to the vet for a full check up. Once checked, they place a CARE collar and tag which indicates they have been successfully dealt with.
