Abandonment – A Dog’s Rescue In Reverse





Abandonment is one of the cruelest things that can happen to a dog. Imagine living a life of comfort, in your home, with the people you know, love and respect and suddenly, one day take a trip with them, exit the car while you’re on a mountain you have never been before, turn around and realize that the car, you family and all you ever knew are gone.

Spirit’s rescue

Starved, sick -very sick actually, partially blind and abandoned, Spirit was rescued literally at the last minute.

Kitten Abandoned On The Street – Someone Do Something

“Someone do something” – I thought it would be more than obvious from the title that it is an awareness video. I had the script ready for quite some time and we were just looking for the right kitten and the right opportunity to come along – it had to be a calm kitten that we could place in a box somewhere and be sure that he would not run off or do anything to hurt itself.

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.
