A shelter in nature
With a presence of over 20 years in Paros and with the participation of volunteers, the PAROS ANIMAL WELFARE SOCIETY-PAWS, has managed to build and operate for 2 years now a model, ecological and highly aesthetic pet shelter in Marathi, fully licensed and with all hygiene and safety rules.
Today, the shelter accommodates around 70 animals with an annual cost of about 100,000 euros (food, medicine, expenses for veterinarians, cleaning, hygiene, maintenance, adoption, energy, etc.).
Great institutional and private sponsors contributed to the financing of the project.
As a non-profit Association, PAWS relies solely on private donors. Association volunteers feed around 400 stray cats daily. At the same time, about 200 stray animals a year are adopted in suitable housing, in Greece and abroad (in collaboration with the friend Organization “Paroshunde”), while more than 300 stray animals a year are neutered, vaccinated and treated.
