SARA Owned Cats Sterilization Campaign

SARA, the Association for the Protection of Animals and Plants in Lanzarote, is performing a sterilization campaign with a difference. Although SARA has been performing sterilization campaigns since its inception to feral cats (unowned), this time the campaign its aimed at "owned cats."

Have your friends told you that you can get medical treatment at the health centre in the town where you live just by showing your UK-issued European Health Insurance Card?

That if you were thinking of going back to the UK, you’d have to wait at least 6 months to access NHS health care?

Well things might not be quite as they seem - the statements above are all false.  Don’t listen to misleading rumours, come and hear from the experts. The British Consulate is holding a series of open events throughout the Canary Islands, to offer advice on  read more »
