When Eri was rescued from the streets of Greece, she suffered form mange, ehrlichia and leishmania. She received treatment and responded very well. For two years now, she has been a happy, healthy dog.
Greece is a country of 11 million inhabitants, and only one city, Athens, the capital. Thessaloniki, the second biggest “city” is trying its best to resemble A city, but it isn’t really. Athens is home to about 6 million people – more than half of the entire country’s population. Athens is where you find jobs, hospitals, art and facilities, and the rest of the country is where you find nothing really.
Rural Greece 2018. This is not an isolated incident, this is how everyday people solve the problem of stray, unwanted dogs. They become the judge, the jury and the executioner overnight, spreading poisoned food and death for the innocent.
Bee’s life is like a fairytale. A fairytale that started in Greece and ended in Paris. It never really ended though. The fairytale continues, in Paris, London and all around Europe, where Bee travels with her mum.
“Ugly” is not really a word that can describe any puppy. Regardless of their appearance, puppies are the cutest little things in the world, right? Meh… It’s complicated.
Animals in Greece this week started as a crazy idea, and now I am addicted. With more and more stories piling up every week, the situation is so ridiculous that irony and sarcasm seem the only way to deal with all that.
As unbelievable as it may seem, this is the same cat. Well, kitten actually. Ruby, as SCARS, the charity that rescued her named her, was found on the streets of Athens, Greece in that condition.
Abandoned in the middle of nowhere, with dozens of ticks sucking the life out of them, malnourished and desperate, those puppies are two of the luckiest ones.
I’ve tried and tried to get Daya adopted. The reason she is still at the shelter is probably that she is too average looking- to most people anyway. She is not too big not too small not to hairy not too white not too black…
I came across this story yesterday and since then I haven’t really been able to sleep – a dog was chained in a field and the shot in the head by its owner. As gruesome as it may sound, t’s not something rare or anything – stories like these are an everyday thing. But the thing about this particular story, is that it happened in the village where I spent my summer vacation last summer.
