Vetisco Helps Support Northern Cyprus Stray Cat Problem

19 February 2016

NORTH CYPRUS - Leading veterinary implants, instruments and equipment company Vetisco has donated two spay kits, one for dogs and one for cats, to Kyrenia Animal Rescue (KAR). Based in the mountains outside the city of Kyrenia in the Turkish occupied area of Cypus, KAR is run by a team of British ex-patriate volunteers.

The charity runs a sanctuary for more than 400 cats and dogs and is extensively involved in neuter and return projects. It also runs education programmes for local people. It is entirely dependent on donations to fund its work.

Vetisco supplies a comprehensive range of UK-manufactured, latest specification, premium quality titanium or stainless steel implants, instruments and other equipment, much of which is designed specifically for animal surgery.

It donated two spay kits to KAR after hearing about its work from Karen Hepplestone, Senior Health & Safety Advisor at CVS, who is a long term supporter of the charity.

Commenting, Andrew Robinson, Operations Manager at Vetisco, said: "Northern Cyprus has a significant problem with stray cats, making neuter and return programmes essential to try to reduce overall numbers and improve the welfare of these animals. KAR's education work is also very important as they work with Government and other organisations to try to change attitudes towards the care and welfare of animals in the community. We wish them great success and are delighted to offer them these spay kits which we hope they will find useful."

Margaret Ray, Chairman and Founder of KAR, added: "We are so very grateful to Vetisco for recognising the work that we do for the street dogs and cats and for this wonderful donation to help our neutering campaign. A big thank you from all the dogs and cats in our care!"
