Dog Wandering With Broken Jaw For 15 Days While Nobody Helped Her

Dog abuse, neglect, abandonment – you name it- in Greece, is like the Doctor Jekyll of our “hospitable, kind, proud and warm” Mediterranean self. The kind shepherd you ask for directions is the same person who can potentially hang, shoot or drown his hunting dog for not doing its job and the nice lady who serves you homemade Geek dishes is the same lady who poisons her next door neighbor’s cats.

Stray Dog Hit By Car Was Dragging His Shattered Legs For Weeks

Stray dogs are living in an ongoing game of Russian roulette. Every day they spin the revolver’s cylinder and pull the trigger. If they are lucky, they get a non-loaded chamber and they make it one more day. But since there is always a bullet in the cylinder, every day they spin it, is one day closer to getting the loaded chamber and being hit by a car, poisoned, abused or hit by illness.

Sad, lonely and fearful, Arnie was spotted by E., a SCARS volunteer in a gas station on the highway, about 65 kilometers from Athens, Greece.

Travelling 2000 Kilometers To Take A Special Dog Home

Travelling across Europe to take a rescue dog to its forever home was a first for me, and actually, it had never crossed my mind that I would have to do it, until a home was found for Christie in Austria. Since the first moment Margaret emailed me, after seeing her Youtube video, I kept thinking that – if everything worked out – Christie would need help adjusting. Margaret realized that, and I can never thank her enough for  organizing everything and paying for our trip. Continue reading Travelling 2000 Kilometers To Take A Special Dog Home

Pavlov’s Dogs And How To Help Our Best Friends Learn

Our dogs learn something from us every minute of the day.

Pet Dogs’ Attempted Murder By Poisoned Food Thrown In Their Home

Pet dogs are no safe in Greece either. You see, it’s not just the strays that are on death row, being poisoned every single day.

Transformation Of A Wild, Sick Dog That Had Never Met People Before

Transformation from being a sick, emaciated, ugly creature to a beautiful, healthy animal is easy. Medication and good food do that. But turning a wild, unsocialized animal to a pet dog, takes patience, persistence, determination and above all, it takes for one person to decide the unthinkable and say: “I’ll take it home” Continue reading Transformation Of A Wild, Sick Dog That Had Never Met People Before
