Zero Stray Pawject and the municipality of Aegina, the mayor Mr. Mourtzis and the Director of Public Health Mrs Hatzina have been working hand in hand since 2017 to start "The Pawject" in Aegina, an initiative to solve the stray dog problem in the island. ZSP is helping the municipality to build their municipal dog registry since early January while the fuller incentive and marketing program started in February 2018. ZSP funds a lottery for every responsible dog owner who microchips and registers their dog to have a chance to win 200 EUR every 2 weeks. Click here for more information. ZSP also DONATED 4 MICROCHIP READERS to the municipality of Aegina and the police in Aegina.
Thanks to the support of Welttierschutzgesellschaft e.V. (WTG), we are offering SUBSIDIZED MICROCHIPPING in Aegina, starting in January 2019 for families who cannot afford the cost of microchipping. To find out if you qualify for the subsidy, please contact Ms Sofia Hatzina at the municipality of Aegina on 2297 320054
This is part of the joint effort of Zero Stray Pawject and the Municipality of Aegina to microchip all dogs who live on the island. Microchipping and registering is required per law 4039/2012 and 4235/2014; violators can be fined EUR 300. So be a responsible owner: microchip your dog, avoid the risk of a fine! This subsidy program is in addition to the ongoing Lottery program, which started in February 2018, to reward responsible owners who microchip their dogs.
This initiative will help to create a culture of eponymous dogs. In Aegina we NO LONGER accept dogs with NO NAMES from residents or visitors who think they can abandon their dogs on the island of Aegina.
