The Dutch team is a group of people who originally came to Samos on holiday. We came in contact with the cats on the island and, subsequently, with Mike and Greek Cat Rescue. We started to use part of the holiday to lend a hand. Nowadays, this is almost a two or more times per year returning event for some of us.
But we also realised that fundamental support is necessary. The shelter cannot function in Samos alone, there is simply not enough money.
Working under the Dutch charity “Stichting Cat Rescue Samos” our team in Holland raises much needed funds/donations and supports activities working with local business, sponsors and transport companies. We work closely with other charities to obtain the much needed food and supplies for the Samos shelter. We are able to transport almost everything from food to cat beds to the shelter in Samos.
Furthermore, we try to get people’s attention on fairs and markets, by selling an annual calender with really beautiful cat pictures a.o. We are all very committed to the shelter and our organisation!
