Cats at Andros e.V. is a non-profit association that does not receive any public subsidies, but covers its expenses exclusively by donations, membership fees, and the protective charge for placements.
Donations are an important part of our funding. We use these both for the animal welfare work on site on Andros and for the care of the animals at our foster homes in Germany.
Expenses arise, for example, for the first medical care on Andros (neutering, tests, parasite treatment, if necessary medical emergency measures), the travel preparations for the animals coming to Germany (transponder chip, vaccinations, pet passport, flight costs) as well as for the accommodation at the foster homes until placement (feed – possibly special feed, litter, convenience goods).
Important for a sufficient and above all continuous supply on Andros are the feed pallets sent several times a year. And last but not least, the other medically necessary treatments of animals brought to Germany are a very large additional expense item, as it is precisely these cats that can no longer stay on Andros for health reasons
We can not perform all this without your help! Therefore, we ask you to help the “Andros Cats” with a donation.
The way you can donate
To donate is easy made for you. Either you transfer the amount you intend to our association´s bank account or via PayPal. We use the amount donated by you according to the statutes for our animal welfare work.
Donating 1 € when paying with PayPal / Starting a fundraiser
