Christmas At Home For “The Dog Than No One Would Adopt”

Christmas makes excellent stories and it’s just the perfect atmosphere for “aww” photos of dogs posing near the tree – apart from “puppy surprises” and kids opening a present to find a puppy inside, I HATE THOSE! Continue reading Christmas At Home For “The Dog Than No One Would Adopt”

Mange Dog Feeding Off Corpses To Survive – Shadow’s Rescue

Mange is terrible – well not at the beginning. It looks terrible when at this stage, and it’s not just the “turn to stone” effect and the loss of hair. It’s the fact that you know how this animal kept being overlooked, while it got sicker and sicker, until it reached a point where it resembled a dead body more than a living being.

Paralyzed Dogs And Cats – how To Care For One

Paralyzed dogs (and cats) might end up in that state due to many reasons, but in Greece, 99% of them were left paralyzed due to a human.

Continue reading Rescue Of A Giant Who Didn’t Know He Was Asking For Help

Ridiculousness – Being A Responsible Dog Owner In Greece

Ridiculousness of the Greek reality when it comes to animal welfare doesn’t only include having pet dogs being chained for life, living in balconies or rooftops (I am not joking) and irresponsible breeding, with litters of puppies abandoned every day. It also extends to responsible dog owners being harassed every day for being responsible. Continue reading Ridiculousness – Being A Responsible Dog Owner In Greece

Sunday Morning For A Dog Rescuer – Mission: Puppies

Sunday is supposed to be something like “sleep until you’re hungry, then eat until you’re sleepy”, right? Well, not if you are a dog rescuer, a volunteer, or involved in animal welfare in any way. If you are any of the above, Sunday is when you are busier than ever. Continue reading Sunday Morning For A Dog Rescuer – Mission: Puppies

Rescue Dog With Amazing Recovery Waiting 3 Years For A Home

Rescue begins the minute you first spot the animal and ends with a forever home. Oliver’s story started almost three years ago, but it still hasn’t ended. After surviving for a long time as a living dead, he was rescued back in 2014, and is still looking for a home. Continue reading Rescue Dog With Amazing Recovery Waiting 3 Years For A Home

Visiting A Rescue Friend – What A Forever Home Can Do

Visiting a rescue dog in his/her forever home is awesome. Rescue is just a part of their story and adoption is what makes it complete. No matter how much we rescuers try to help them reach their potential, we can never do what a forever home does. Continue reading Visiting A Rescue Friend – What A Forever Home Can Do

Greek DA Defies The Animal Welfare Law Simply Because She Feels Like It

Greek animal welfare is like…what Rubik’s cube is to most people: it’s obvious that it can be done, and once you are almost there, a piece (of shit) comes along and spoils the whole structure, obliging you to take the whole thing apart again.
