Catwork is a small, private organisation with the aim of helping cats that others seem to shun.  Catwork was started from the premise that, 'being difficult to home' should never be a reason for ending a cat's life. Catwork is not able to take in all special needs cats but is able and willing to give help and advice. Many people have received advice from Catwork which has saved the life of their beloved cats. If you are being advised by your vet or any other organisation to put your HIV cat 'to sleep', please call Catwork - they can help you.
Tierhilfe Korfu, is an organisation based in Germany that helps to find homes for dogs.

apollo dive center - have you ever wondered what its like to breathe underwater ?
If you want to find out,  why not try 'Discover Scuba Diving' with apollo dive center. They have two dive bases in Corfu, Barbati and Nissaki and offer this program in a safe confined water area.
They also offer certification courses through the PADI dive system and have dives for the already qualified and more experienced divers too.
As an experienced and fully qualified diver myself, I do recommend 'having a go' as it is fun and gives an opportunity to visit another world that few people ever see.
