Greek Animal Rescue

HELPING ANIMALS IN ANDROS - GREECE  * I have lived in Greece since 1979 and all of that time I have helped animals whenever I could. This involved helping to neuter cats and dogs, adopting dogs, re homing dogs and feeding stray dogs and cats, both in Athens and on the island where I live which is Andros, in the Cyclades islands.Ten years ago I I bought a house on Andros in a remote mountain village. One of the reasons I chose this location was so that I could keep animals without annoying any neighbours and thus putting the animals at risk from being poisoned, a common practice in Greece. My house is located on the slopes of the largest mountain on Andros and my nearest neighbour in the winter is around 1 klm. away. In the summer there are a few houses in the area but still at a safe distance. Because I have a large amount of land, I decided to help and home as many abandoned animals as I could and this now includes 23 resident dogs, 25 resident cats and a donkey and a mule.  * Last winter we had a whole family of seven dogs dumped on us (thrown into the garden) which hugely increased the food bill !! and strained the already difficult conditions of controlling and taking care of the dogs, and created a greater need for help or donations.The centre is now funded by renting two properties through airbnb and is run by myself with the help of volunteers from a site called workaway.com. Volunteers come from all over the world and have been hugely helpful. If there is anyone out there who feels they would like to make a donation, this will help us to continue providing help for animals in need. We try to give our best to each animal in the rescue center not only offering them food but also love. In Greece finding homes for dogs is extremely difficult because there are already thousands of stray animals. Also the financial crisis in Greece has made it even more difficult to find homes. If you have any questions about adopting a dog please let us know... there are some dogs who would make wonderful family members. Any donation however small will be extremely welcome and much appreciated.

Ένας από τους λόγους που επέλεξα τη συγκεκριμένη τοποθεσία ήταν ώστε να μπορώ να έχω ζώα χωρίς να ενοχλούνται οι περίοικοι από την παρουσία τους, κάτι που θα ήταν επικίνδυνο για τα ίδια τα ζώα, καθώς η δηλητηρίαση ζώων είναι συχνό φαινόμενο Ελλάδα. Το σπίτι μου βρίσκεται στις πλαγιές του μεγαλύτερου βουνού της Άνδρου και ο πιο κοντινός μου γείτονας τους  χειμερινούς μήνες βρίσκεται σε απόσταση 1 χιλιομέτρου. Το καλοκαίρι κατοικούνται κάποια κοντινότερα σπίτια, αλλά και πάλι βρίσκονται σε ασφαλή απόσταση.Έχοντας στην κατοχή μου μία μεγάλη έκταση γης, αποφάσισα να δώσω σπίτι και φροντίδα σε όσα περισσότερα εγκαταλελειμμένα ζώα μπορούσα, φιλοξενώντας σε μόνιμη βάση ως τώρα: 20 σκύλους, 25 γάτες, ένα άλογο, ένα γαϊδούρι και ένα μουλάρι. * την Κυριακή 7 Ιανουαρίου, ένας άνδρας από ένα γειτονικό χωριό (περίπου 12 χλμ μακριά), φόρτωσε μία ολόκληρη οικογένεια σκύλων στο αυτοκίνητό του, έναν αρσενικό σκύλο, ένα θυληκό σκύλο και τα 7 κουτάβια τους, οδήγησε ως το σπίτι μου και τα πέταξε όλα στο δρόμο με προφανή πρόθεση να τα «εγκαταλείψει» πάνω μου. Στη βιασύνη του για να μην τον δουν, πάτησε και σκότωσε  με το αυτοκίνητο το ένα κουτάβι.  Από την πτώση, ένα δεύτερο κουτάβι σκοτώθηκε, ένα τρίτο έ

Help Xanax beat the Wobbler !

Help Xanax beat the Wobbler !

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!Let me introduce myself : I'm Xanax, yeah... like the drug . Today my life is at risk, but anyone reading this could help me. Let me tell you my story : ( Don't bother my human with my name : he doesn't even know himself why I got this one. Cause we met when I was 9 months old and already named Xanax. ) Well guys, even if I look good on the picture, today I'm pretty bad. Two days ago I've been diagnosed a wobbler syndrom. The first symptoms appeared about 3 months ago, but the vet did not came to the conclusion because I'm young (2.5 years old only!) and despite a slight pain in the back and a rear leg a bit weak, I was still pretty good. The thing is because of that wobbler syndrome (not diagnosed at that time), I suffered a cruciate ligament tear 3 weeks ago. I love to do sport with my human : fetching , running, fetching , walking on the beach, fetching , catching seaguls (at least I try to... ) fetching  and even doing stand up paddle   ! As I'm young, my biped said : let's repair that and rock and roll ! He's been eating letuce and apples for the past two weeks, but he's still good. Surgery went well ! I've a 15 cm long zipper on my rear leg, but now all the dogs at the park pay me respect. That's the good part.  The bad one is that even if I'm able to use my four legs, they're actually not responding well any more. Any rough terrain put me down, and I'm barely able to urinate without falling over.  Came back to the vet on friday morning, 13th of july and went through a full neurological test. It's quite obvious that it's the damn wobbler syndrome. Compression on the spinal cord in the neck.  Surgery now gets very good results but it's quite expensive. The vet said around 5 or 6000 € ( $ 6 - 7 000), but my biped said he can't stop eating, plus it's a matter of time...The sooner the better, before the nerves get definitely damaged. Else I could be unable to walk within the next days or week... Any help would be welcome. Anything would be handfull, at least to pay for the MRI, (around 500€ - $600) to kow exactly where my spinal cord is injured or for some treatment to ease the next weeks in case I'll have to leave this world...   Cheers ! And keep throwing the ball

He has been in foster care and is now suffering from a HIP BONE FRACTURE and HERNIA due to a dog attack. He is undergoing 2 seperate surgeries - one to repair the damage inside, and the other to amputate his tail. ($260EUR to cover his vet fees and continuing treatment)  * Many of you already know of sweet Iggy, the husky pup who was found at a local pet shop covered in THOUSANDS OF TICKS, and only 4 weeks old. He is still fighting through very bad ANEMIA, which has thankfully improved immensely. He has been receiving a multitude of vitamins, recovery food and medications to help save his young life. ($105EUR to cover his remaining costs and continuing care) * This rainy season, dozens of street dogs are suffering from MANGE, and the usual, ticks. Bravecto is one of those medications that does wonders for these poor Thai Street dogs. It prevents mange and ticks for up to 6 months, just one tablet! This preventative medication is lifesaving against blood parasites. ($16EUR per tablet x 10 = $160) * Latest foster girl, Ginger is crossing her paws that she can fly overseas to a loving home. She was rescued off the streets just recently, and has been like a therapy dog for new fosters! She brings the timid dogs out of their shell. It's time for her adoption story to unfold!!  ($260EUR can make this happen!)We are so grateful for our team of supporters who have been donating consistently throughout this busy year of rescue. These cats & dogs need YOU guys as much as they need us. Together we can create beautiful change!!Thank you for your selfless support
