Dr Inna's feral
program was set up in the Summer of 2009. It was set up
initially to neuter as many feral cats as possible to stop
the increasing number of stray cats and to assist with
keeping the feral cat population healthy. As the program
developed we realized we needed to assist with injured
homeless animals whether dogs or cats that were found in
need of emergency medical. We cannot provide boarding for
homeless dogs and cats but we always will provide medical
treatment wherever required.
We continue to
support other cat rescues in the area who have feeding
programs and we offer food at cost price to all rescues
involved in feeding programs for cats. Also we offer a cage
at the clinic for anyone with kittens for re-homing and the
use of this cage can be organized with our receptionist..
This has proved very successful when trying to find good
homes for feral kittens.
To date we have neutered 256 females and 250 males.
In addition to this
we have provided emergency treatment to many cats and we
have treated and re-homed many dogs.
donation is required from the person bringing the feral cats
for neutering the cost is currently
€ 30.00 for a female cat
€ 20.00 for a male cat
In addition to the neutering the cat is given a vaccination, parasite treatment, pain relief and antibiotic injection. Please note we always cut the ear to notify other rescues to prevent further capture and an unnecessary operation.
medical treatment for dogs and cats will be charged on a
case by case basis. We will always ask for a donation where
are always in need of bric-a-brac/clothing etc to sell at
the local market and books for our book swap please bring
all of your surplus items to the clinic and our fund raising
staff will collect to sell.
the right of this picture is Max. He was found as a puppy at
the Akamas in a very bad condition. His hind leg was broken,
he was covered in fleas and ticks, his eyes were full of
mucous and infected and he was very under nourished. The
family who found him brought him to the clinic for emergency
treatment and Dr Inna examined and prescribed the necessary
care and medicines. The family were here on holiday and was
worried what would happen to the puppy if they did not take
care of him and after a discussion with Dr Inna the family
decided when he was well enough to travel and the necessary
vaccinations had been given they would take him to England.
Julie boarded the dog for a month after the family returned
to the UK and on Wednesday 24th April with the help of Dr
Inna's feral program Max went home. This is him in his new
