The trouble is, on Corfu, visiting vets need prior permission by the vetinary association. They worry that it will not only be strays that are treated and that they will lose their income because of these visits. Foreign vet visits do sometimes occur, but the arrangements require a lot of tact and diplomacy, not to mention the bureauocracy (sorry I always spell that wrong) involved and consequently the whole thing can be a bit of a minefield.
What I would really like is to have the AAWF generate enough money that it could afford to pay a Greek vet for a day or two a month to perform operations/vaccinations/microchipping services etc for strays and the pets of those who simply cannot afford this kind of thing themselves. We can but dream!
In the meantime we do what we can and are greatful for all the support, financial or otherwise, that we have received.
