Dog Wandering For Days With Embeded Wire Cutting Through Her Belly

Dog abuse in Greece is probably hardwired into our genes – I don’t know how I can explain it any other way.  Embedded wires in necks, tails and even bellies of dogs and cats is so often, that my usual reaction when seeing on of these posts is: “oh, there’s another one”

Crimes Against Animals In Western Greece – A Letter To The Mayor

Crimes against animals in Greece are so frequent, that if I had to post about what happens here every day, I would just be spamming. But there is one particular area here in Greece, where horror stories keep popping up, and it is just too much.

Shot And Left Paralyzed, This Stray Puppy Found Her Dream Home

Shot when she was only a few weeks old, in a village somewhere in central Greece, Nicky was left paralyzed. The bullet remained stuck in her spine, and it cannot be removed, so Nicky will be carrying the evidence of the worst of humanity in her tiny little body for the rest of her life.

15 Gorgeous Puppies Rescued From The Streets

15  meaning “I met these 15 and can post about them – there are hundreds like them abandoned every day” I’m not sure we understand what rescuing this kind of beauty  right from the street actually means. These 15 were not just found on the street. They were born, considered trash, and abandoned in garbage bins, on the side of the road or in the middle of nowhere, so that they’d starve and die.

Stray Dog Violated By Having Football Team’s Name Spray Painted On Her
