Elderly Cat Abandoned At 17 Is Given A Home To Spend Her Final Years





Elderly cats, like elderly dogs (and people) need all the love and support they can get. Sometimes, apart from various health issues, ageing can increase their anxiety and tendency to react aggressively. It can also change their social relationships with their owner and other pets in the house. Cinnamon is one very old cat. In fact, she is 17 years old and was thrown out of her home a few months ago. Imagine having to deal with ageing, health deterioration and a new environment. Continue reading Elderly Cat Abandoned At 17 Is Given A Home To Spend Her Final Years

Hunting Dog Used For Breeding Now Is Loved More Than She Could Imagine

Hunting dogs suffer more than any other dogs in Greece. Spending their entire lives chained or locked up, they are rarely treated as pets, are abandoned once they get old, sick or even lost during hunting. Continue reading Hunting Dog Used For Breeding Now Is Loved More Than She Could Imagine

Robocat – Tiny Rescue Kitten Is The Funniest Baby Ever

Robocat is what we call him, because in rescue, the best thing you can do is stay positive and always look on the bright (and funny) side of things. Otherwise you risk ending up in a psyche word. What we see every day is just too much to handle. And when people ask how do we deal with it, the answer is not always easy to hear. We deal with it laughing. At least I do. I laugh a lot. Continue reading Robocat – Tiny Rescue Kitten Is The Funniest Baby Ever

Starved And Sick Pit Bull Rescued Too Late





Spirit’s rescue

Starved, sick -very sick actually, partially blind and abandoned, Spirit was rescued literally at the last minute. He was spotted by a woman near one of Athens’ richest areas, Glyfada, who posted two photos of him on Facebook, begging for help. According to her, the dog’s owner’s kept him tied 24/7, until they left for their summer vacation, and decided to let him loose. Their future plans were to put him to sleep, once they got back, so that “he wouldn’t suffer”. Continue reading Starved And Sick Pit Bull Rescued Too Late

Rescuers Discover Something Amazing About This Rescue Dog

Rescuers have seen almost everything in Greece, so nothing can surprise us anymore. There was something off about Oscar since day one, but then again, there was nothing wrong with him either. He was rescued from the streets of Greece by Save a Greek Stray in April 2016. Only one year old, he had to survive among a pack of stray dogs that would constantly bully and terrorize him. He arrived at the shelter very sick – leishmaniasis, mange, ehrichia, you name it. Continue reading Rescuers Discover Something Amazing About This Rescue Dog

Rescue Cat With Severe Injuries Becomes A Spoilt Prince

Frog’s story is as devastating and as sad as can be. Just another rescue cat found wandering around an urban area in southern Greece, dragging his hind leg, with a broken spine and severely malnourished.

Stray Puppy Recovered From Mange Still Has A Long Way To Go





Some rescue stories get their happy end once the dogs are healed and recovered, and some others have a long way to go before they reach a happy end. Before – after can be awe-inspiring and amazing, but sometimes, behind the incredible photos and the “I can’t believe it’s the same dog photos” there’s a lot more than just the rescue dog’s appearance that needed time and effort improve. Continue reading Stray Puppy Recovered From Mange Still Has A Long Way To Go

Rescue Boxer Saves Mother Cat and Her Kittens

I don’t know where to begin. I met with the “family” for a couple of hours. Elizabeth would take the photos, I’d make the video and basically we would help the kittens find a home – I had even come up with a title for the video already: “Rescue Boxer …bla bla..” But there’s so much more to it than just another “aww” cuteness overload story that I’m not even sure I can give you a clear image of what all that actually means. These six represent so much, basically almost everything we rescuers in Greece fight for, and will keep fighting, until we are no longer needed.
