Our team in Germany has directly originated from volunteers who came to Samos on holiday and saw the desperate needs of the street cats in Samos at first hand, and through contact with the local charity (Greek Cat Rescue), volunteers and rescue work.
It was clear from these personal experiences that much work was needed in Germany with friends, family and with the wider public to help and highlight the work happening in Samos day to day with cat loving people, even if they have never been to Greece.
To make this dream a reality, our charity in Germany “Samos Katzenhilfe e.V.” was formed in 2014 to fundraise officially and further promote and grow the support for the Samos cats.
In the meantime, we have many german resident volunteers who support us actively with their particular expertise, technical skills or artistic talents. They help, a. o. providing individual products and selling on markets, fundraising, collecting donations, organising sterilisation projects in Samos, or actively supporting the shelter on site. Our volunteers are not always necessarily required to actually help on the grounds in Samos, there are many ways to help and support the Samos cats even from Germany.
We are always looking for more active volunteers, help and support from German residents, so please feel free to contact us today and we are sure we can find a way you can help. We look forward to hearing from you today!
You can also join our team and become a “Sponsoring Member” by supporting Samos Katzenhilfe e.V. with regular donations and contributions of your own choice. Without these much needed financial contributions, the work of Cat Rescue Samos would not be possible
