NEWSLETTER 12 (Annual Report '13)
STRAY ANIMALS SUPPORT GROUP
Throughout 2013 SASG volunteers had a very busy year and worked hard to raise funds
for the organization. The bulk of the funds went towards the neutering of stray
animals and towards food for stray cat colonies that are looked after by members
and helpers of SASG. Shop sales, fundraising activities and donations gave us a
total income of 81,315 Euros for the year.
In 2013 we neutered 1,471 stray cats from several colonies from every corner of the island.
Funds raised from our charity shops, other fund raising activities,
as well as donations from well-wishers were spent as follows:-
€21295.00 Rent (shops, store, cat ward)
€25555.59 Neutering and medication of stray cats
€27221.06 Food for stray cat colonies, recovery cats and rescued cats
€ 1744.07 Litter for recovery cats and rescued cats
€ 570.00 Donations to other NGOs
€ 1574.87 Telephone//Water and Electricity bills
€ 672. 60 Transport expenses
€ 319.48 Others (advertising, stationery, etc)
€ 150.00 Accountant
Our heartfelt thanks go to our dedicated shop staff who give their time voluntarily
and work so hard in the Charity Shops to raise these much needed funds. We also
thank all the kind and generous people who donate good stuff to our shops thus
enabling us to help stray animals and hopefully give them a better life. We also
thank our kind sponsors who regularly send their much needed donations. And last
but not least we thank the vets who give us discounted prices for the neutering
of stray cats thus enabling us to do so much more.
During this year we organized a couple of fund raising lunches and a summer night
dinner which were very well attended. Some friends of SASG also organized another
summer night dinner which raised over 1,800 Euro plus a donation of 1,000 Euro
from a well-wisher who was unable to attend. We received a donation of 214 Euro
from an event (a summer concert) that was organized by Mrs. Muscat (wife of the PM).
Throughout the year some of us worked hard to keep cat colonies under control.
We spend hours catching and trapping cats and running them to the vets for neutering.
We also spend hours looking after them and giving them post operation care before
they are released back into their colonies. We thank all the volunteers who
dedicate so much time into looking after these colonies and daily going out to
look after and feed these colonies to ensure the stray cats and dogs received
their daily feed.
SASG has a number of rescued cats under their care, cats that for various reasons
cannot be put back outside. These cats would like to have sponsors who would adopt
them as their own, but will still be looked after by SASG. These cats are up for
sponsoring on our web site. It is only Euro 5 a month to sponsor one of these
cats. Please check out our cats and choose your own adoptee that you can visit

Some of our rescued cats that are looking for loving homing can be seen on our
homing page. If you can offer one of them
a home please contact Janine on 79575765. If you cannot adopt a cat, you might
like to help by sponsoring one until a good home is found. Or you could sponsor
one of our not-so-sociable cats. Check out our sponsoring page.
