Children Tie A Wire Around Dog’s Neck And Drag Him Till He Loses His Voice

Children are supposed to be the future, and the key word in the previous sentence, is “supposed”. You see, children are the best imitators, and they have no other choice but to imitate the adults they are surrounded by.

Greek Stray Dog Adopted In Paris Won’t Stop “Bragging” About It

Greek strays range from very unlucky to unbelievably lucky. Being born in the streets or ending up there one day can easily result in being poisoned, ran over, abused or piled up in a public shelter and die of hunger and neglect.

Rescue Of A Scared Dog Abandoned On A Highway – In Black And White

Rescue is (or should be) such a genuine act – and feeling. It actually makes you feel like a rock star – no plans, no schedule, no conformity of any kind.

Rescuing An Orphaned Baby Bird – Guess Who Couldn’t Care Less

Rescuing was always about private initiative I guess. Some of us have a soft spot for cats, dogs, baby birds, turtles..whatever.

Burnt Alive, Poisoned And Tortured – Take Action For Zante Stray Dogs

Burnt, poisoned, tortured, decimated… Can you really grasp the meaning of those words? Language is an amazing thing, able to capture meanings, feelings and events too complicated, and yet, the actual “essence” of some events seems to be bubbling over the word itself.

Animals In Greece This Week (again)

I had been wanting to do this for so long. This is the second one of these videos and making them is probably a way for me to “get it out of my system”. What happens here in Greece every single day can never be covered by my daily blogs or a rescue video I upload per week.
