cant find any info on when this is starting. have 2 female kittens & 2 adults need neutering asap. also male kitten & his dad if not too expensive.
and is this likely to be cheaper than buying the vouchers

whenever this starts assume have to contact your local vet and ask if they are in the scheme.

where is your complex. is a few places sell neutering vouchers. think about 20 euro for a female & bit less for boys. great reduction to normal fees, i was told by vet 70 for a boy as full price.

if you are near paralimni area there is helping hands charity shop who usually sells the vouchers.

75,000 euros, a very small start to a very big problem and just not good enough! Especially when I read that Paphos Municipality are spending 130,000 euros this year to buy new Christmas lights. Be interesting to know how much the other large Municipalities are spending on their trees/street lights this year. Rest assured, it will be much more than 75,000 euros.

Perhaps they could think about spending a bit less on the Christmas decorations and a bit more on what really matters.

Where does it say that? Think the 2 paralimni vets are doing it. Then wonder how many vets there is here in Cyprus. Maybe those not taking part donít trust how long it will take for them to get paid or that they
will

I think over 12 months we trapped and arranged for around 15 cats to be neutered through the voucher scheme, The local Caligula near to the Famagusta Hospital managed to eliminate 12 of them in one go.

75 vets taking part will receive 1000 euros each,if they charge 10.00 per cat, then only 100 cats per vet are neutered ,hardly enough to deal with the problem,which is estimated at 1.5million cats.

I heard Ä20 Euro a cat so then only 50 can be done. doesnít say if just females but probably will be.
Will prevent a lot of kittens but nowhere near enough.

If it's true as some veterinarians claim, that a male cat can be neutered in under 2 minutes although spaying a female can take fifteen to twenty minutes then surely the money split between the 75 or so participating vets here is not unreasonable if they also want to contribute to the country's social responsibility? We always think of neutering the females but maybe on the basis of that information the way to go is to neuter more males.

Here is more information from The Argos Animal Sanctuary Facebook page;

The government sterilisation programme is now in force islandwide and people who feed large numbers of cats are urged to contact their district veterinary services who will advise them who to contact to obtain vouchers and also a list of the veterinarians who are part of this program;

Each district is divided into sections and voucher blocks have been issued to each member of the district animal welfare committee (under the veterinary services) to distribute the vouchers.
Tel. Nos. of the District Veterinary stations:
Larnaca 24821275 ask for Pavlos
Famagusta 24-824555 ask for Andreas
Nicosia 22-805201
Limassol 25-819512
Paphos 26-821261

There is a time limit up to the 11th December all vouchers have to be submitted to the government for payment
