Hi folks. I am new to this message board, having moved down to AC earlier in the year and adjusting to such a new way of life after the big city.
We brought our cats with us when we moved and they are adapting well to island life, but there are so many animals here that need your help. I have been talking a lot with Bron, our local vet, about the Saga Society (they have a web page with more info on their work with all the stray animals) and she is in real need of things both large and small, that maybe you could find some space for in your luggage. Or if you are shipping stuff down perhaps your container isnít quite full!!
If you are friendly with your local vet then basically any surgical instruments or medical supplies they might be willing to donate would be welcome. Also collars and leashes, which would only take up a small space in the suitcase. Or old towels/blankets which I know would take more room, but think of the space you will have for taking home all your goodies!!
For those of you moving here then a cat crush cage would be a big help with all the unhandleable ferals! or perhaps you have a filing cabinet that you canít imagine a use for in such a laid back environment and were going to leave behind And for those escaping corporate life, maybe your company is about to upgrade their photocopier and would like to donate the old one to a good cause.
The Saga Society and Bron are doing some great work in neutering and rehoming so many of the animals, but they would really appreciate your help. And if you are able to bring stuff down for her, the office is in town directly behind Ramonís village.
