The GASAH birthday challenge

GASAH is an officially registered charity both on the Greek island of Kos and in Switzerland. Whilst our main fundraising events and administration work are carried out in Switzerland, most of our hands-on charity work is carried out on the Greek island of Kos, where our animal shelter, Stepping Stone, is situated. Our work on Kos includes animal rescue, castration projects and maintenance work on our sanctuary. We work hard to alleviate the suffering of dogs, cats and cows. Apart from sterilisation, we endeavour to educate dog owners; furthermore, we exert pressure on the authorities to get animal protection laws implemented.


Most of our helpers from Switzerland and abroad work on a voluntary basis.


All our committee members work without payment. Some do this animal welfare work practically full time. As well as this we have members who work with facebook and our homepage, plus translators and event organisers.

Your donations go straight to reducing animal suffering. Our work is led by competent people qualified in their area of responsibility, people who give up their time and personal finances to help, people who regard helping these victims of man's cruelty or ignorance as a privilege.
