Hi, this page is on behalf of Frankie. Here is her story;

"I left New Zealand to help animals that are not as fortunate and protected as they are here at home.

After two months in Greece volunteering at an animal shelter I am now in Croatia.

Here I discovered the small island of Vis. Currently this beautiful island has no veterinarian but many animals in need of veterinary care.

There are few individuals here who privately fund the cost of veterinary care for the street cats of Vis. However, there is no registered charity, shelter or any official animal welfare organisation on the island.

Currently on foot in the port of Vis searching for cats in need I have located a sick Queen with 3, four month old kittens with cat flu and one with an injured leg, a 3 month old kitten with a severely damaged eye and a old Tom cat with a nasty neck wound. As well as a long list of cats requiring desexing and several queens with kittens needing socialising. And this is all in one day!

Obtaining veterinary care for these cats requires a two hour ferry trip to the Mainland Split.

My first trip was on Friday. Two female cats were speyed - one which had a severely inflamed uterus and is now recovering on a course of antibiotics. Unfortunately the snuffly kittens and the cat with the neck wound could not be caught. The kitten with the damaged eye requires specialist attention and is scheduled to be seen next week.

Female desexing - 250 Croatian Kuna ($59 NZD)

Male- 200 Croatian Kuna ($47 NZD)
