|PAWS clinic at Magazia|
Founded in 2005, the society (now a Registered Charity) carries out the usual range of animal welfare activities on the island including neutering and spaying of cats and dogs as well as a year round feeding programme for the feral cats. Volunteers on the island are joined each year by visiting vets to carry out a range of medical treatments on the islands animals.
When I was there in June 2014, I saw a number of the cat feeding stations around the island including the pictured one at Loggos, which was being well used by a nu
mber of cats. Sadly, according to their recent newsletter, this was lost in the storms of December 2014 but is being replaced in 2015. Whilst on a walk through the village of Magazia I came across the PAWS clinic. Doing my research back home it turned out this was a recent development which was opened in September 2013 and has greatly helped the society with their work.

To find out more about the work of PAWS (or to make a welcome donation) you can visit their website at www.pawspaxos.com . Rather unusually they do not seem to have a Facebook page at this stage, but I'll edit in a link later should this change.
If you are visiting Paxos do look out for the feeding stations round the island and consider helping them with their work. Regards, David.
