Alice was rescued by Save a Greek Stray over a year ago. As most hunting dogs that we rescue in Greece, she was abandoned because she got sick.
This is a woman that had me in awe the first time I visited her, about a year and a half ago, when I was asked to photograph some of her dogs for adoption. I have been wanting to make a video on her for so long, and finally I get to show some of her work – actually presenting what she really does would make a two hour documentary.
Everything I say and everything I write about Mentee will never be enough. He broke my heart the first time I saw him, as he was sitting there, just rescued from the streets, with his beautiful huge eyes looking around, not knowing what to do, and how to behave. Not knowing how to be happy, how to be a puppy.
I have known Thalia for year, she is a family friend and has been rescuing dogs for more than 20 years. She never considered herself a rescuer and never demanded any help from anyone. All she does, she does it on her own. The fact that I am able to help her rehome some of her rescues makes me very happy, and I am grateful that she can trust me to do it.
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.
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…
There are more than a million stray dogs in Greece. Most of them are young dogs, abandoned as puppies, that barely last a year on the streets.
Mangy, starving and born on the streets, those five are some of the thousands of puppies born on the streets of Greece every single day. Puppies without future, without tomorrow, born in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Sick, starving, scared to death and abandoned in a square in the center of Glyfada, one of the most expensive and upper class neighborhoods of Glyfada, the two puppies were rescued by SPAZ, the local charity.
