Animal Freedoms

As an organisation, we support the five animal freedoms that have been developed and are now widely recognised world-wide.

Both our resident cats and our street cats in Kini have access to fresh water at all times

We believe that all the animals in our care should have:

  • Freedom from Hunger and Thirst
    By ready access to fresh water and diet to maintain health and vigour.
  • Freedom from Discomfort
    By providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.
  • Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease
    By prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.
  • Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour
    By providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind.
  • Freedom from Fear and Distress
    By ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
Syros cats are able to roam freely to explore
Unless they need to be caged for medical treatment, our adult cats, like Pumpkin here, are free to roam and explore

We support local businesses and charities who share our goals and would encourage you to do the same, including:

  • Two Cicadas on the Armerikia Trees, Waterfront Taverna, Kini
  • Captain’s Rooms, Boutique and pet-friendly hotel, Kini, Syros
  • Nikolas Taverna in Xroussa, Syros. Traditional Greek food with spectacular views
