Chained Abandoned Dog Almost Hangs Itself While Trying To Break Free

Greece, April 30th, 2018. 21rst century (supposedly), and this is what a rescuer can come across. Why? Oh well, why not? This is the way we do things here. Because it’s convenient, because we don’t care and because impunity here can reach unprecedented levels.

Rescue Of A Sad Mangy Puppy Hiding In A Junkyard

“These are the situations we come across every day… What kind of life is this? A tiny baby, weighting less than ten kilos, slowly fading away, helpless. He could barely keep his eyes open, being touched was nothing but painful, not one hair left on his body, and a horrible odor following him for meters.

Cat Rescued After Being Shot With A Spear Gun

I came across this yesterday and I just had to share it. Animal abuse cases in Greece are an everyday thing, and today I had to choose among a female stray that was set on fire, a puppy thrown down a 10 meter deep well and a number of stray dogs rescued on the brink of death.
