This Woman Cares For 70 Rescued Dogs On Her Own

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.

Meet The Woman Who Devotes Her Life To Rescuing Stray Dogs

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.

Simple Ways To Make A Dog Rescuer Lose A Good Night’s Sleep

If you are a dog rescuer living in a country like Greece, you can never really get a good night’s sleep, because you know for a fact that right this moment, when you rescues are safe and sound in the shelter or a foster home, there are about a million others out there, dying helpless, being poisoned and giving birth on the streets to puppies bound to be ran over by a truck once they are old enough to start walking but that old to know the dangers.

Why I Did Not Keep The Dog That “Loved Me”

Why didn’t you keep him? He loved you … I get this question almost every time I post a video about a rescue or foster dog (ah! especially a foster dog) that was adopted. Today, I even woke up to find a comment in Christie’s video saying “she trusted you and you let her down!” WTF???

24 Hours In A Dog Rescuer’s Life

24 hours, provided that we don’t sleep. If we sleep, we are left with about 16 hours. 16 hours, provided that we don’t have a job. If we have a job, we are left with 8 hours. 8 hours, provided that we don’t have a personal life. If we have a personal life (a husband, kids, a boyfriend, a hobby, our own pets to take care of), we are left with as many hours as we decide to dedicate to rescue.

Woman Rescuer Makes Her Home a Shelter For The Unwanted

 

All of us were introduced to the animal welfare world in different ways. I, for example, had no idea about what was really going on. One day I found an abandoned dog right outside my house, took him home and the rest came pretty easy. I never had to worry about what my first step would be, what I should do or how I should handle it. I posted his photo on the facebook page of the charity in my area, and the next day he was vaccinated and scheduled to be checked out and then neutered.
