Poros Animal Welfare Society was legally registered in 2002, charity number 671/2001. We help the stray animals of Poros Island and the small town of Galatas, on the Pelopponese mainland. Since 2003 we have had a designated room for our use, provided by the local Municipalityof Poros. In the early years we had Yiannis, a vet with a practice on the neighbouring island of Aegina, visiting just once a month. Yiannis still helps us, but now we also have another Yiannis, this time from Athens, who has set up a clinic in Poros called Medical Zoo that is open on Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings. Both vets kindly give reduced prices to PAWS.
