Under the beautiful stars, lies a safe haven for stray dogs and cats.
We are a small non-profit shelter in Greece, and a Dutch based foundation.
Our shelter is located in Trifilia (Western Peleponesse) and our main goal is to decrease the amount of strays dogs and cats. We also rescue the street dogs and cats that are in need and give them a safe haven to live.
Unfortunately the streets are not safe, because generally in Greece the people treat the animals different and dogs and cats get dumped when they are of no use (*sick, pregnant, pups, etc) or get poisoned when they are just roaming the streets. Litters and sick dogs get found every day. This is a very big problem in Greece, which is not sufficiently dealt with by the Government and local small shelters, like ours, try to make it a better life for the ones in need.
We do this mainly by rescuing those in need, taking them to the vet, treating them and if possible release them to the place where they were found. When dogs are not fit enough to be returned, they can live on the safe haven and we put them up for adoption. We also Trap Neuter Release (TNR) to keep populations in check.
