Municipal Veterinary Clinic Lefkada: sterilisations weekend 5-7 June 2015

Despite extremely difficult conditions, at noon of Sunday 7 June 2015, was completed, the better organized by the Guild, can three-day sterilisations.

By the morning of Friday, 5 June, until noon of Sunday 7 June, sterilized 27 dogs and 52 cats. All were marked electronically and entered into the archive of the municipality of Lefkada. In dogs conducted blood tests. Vaccinations were held on Sunday 7 June.

The dogs remained in the area of rehabilitation centers, until Saturday June 13th, so returned in their natural environment. We had the pleasure, during the week that stayed with us, some of them seem fortunate and adoptable.

The dogs were chosen strictly on the basis of the criteria laid down in the recent meeting of the five-Member Committee of the municipality of Lefkada (Committee for the monitoring of the programme management of stray animals in the municipality of Lefkada).

More specifically, in the municipal Veterinary Clinic served:

  1. A) stray animals of the municipality of Lefkada. Stray, in accordance with the legislation. considered the pet which is either not domiciled or located outside the residence of its owner and not under direct supervision.

(B)) The owned animals, whose owner belongs to the vulnerable groups of the population. In this case, the holder must obtain a special permit from the municipality of Lefkada and provide the necessary documents.

  1. C) adopted local uncommitted, up to sterilisation. After LAWS’ proposal, it was decided by the five-member Commission to establish incentives so easily someone adopts stray, without thinking of the exorbitant expenses first. Promised and private veterinarians that will help and they, in turn, on specific cases.

We must point out that the program would not have taken place without the reassurance of LAWS to the vet, for financial compensation. After the recent political developments and the great difficulty which meets the municipality of Lefkada in financial obligations in this matter, we are not allowed to let unpaid vets who worked tirelessly over a twelve-hour each day, in difficult circumstances and Moreover, they were bringing the drug costs and other expenses of the surgery. With the help of donations from citizens, who understood perfectly the situation, prior information, we were able to do already, half of veterinary expenses of the meeting.
