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 with Reece's vet bills

Help with Reece's vet bills

As a lot of you know, my poor Reecey got very ill over the past 2 weeks and finally after 3 vets visits, and hours of us feeding him with a syringe we were advised he needed to go to a pet hospital to be treated urgently as he wasn't eating, lost over 1kg and the blood tests showed abnormalities and inflammation in his liver, pancreas and more.  Now I am asking for your help. ​I rescued Reece 13 years ago from a shelter in Toronto, Canada when he was 2 years old. He was a difficult cat to begin with; aggressive, afraid and at first he peed on everything. It got to a point that I didn't know how I could cope with his destructive behaviour but then I realized that he reminded me of myself as a 16 year old girl; homeless, angry, afraid and self sabotaging. I knew I couldn't abandon this little creature who needed me and just wanted to be safe and loved. And so it began that when he would get angry or bite or act like an asshole I would take him in my arms and rock him, asking him why he was so mad and he begin to answer back.....:) Eventually with time and some bite marks and scratches my furious ginger boy softened and then relaxed and then even became chilled. He was my rock during a break down in 2008, bouts of depression over the years and the reason to get up very day and to not take my own life. This little bugger has saved my life more times than I can remember.He is like my child, he is my best friend and ultimately I feel like we saved each other. Sadly as a musician I don't make a lot of money and have spent all I have left I have on the bills and other bits Reece has needed to try and get him well. Some of you have already donated via paypal and bought some of my music at https://www.emalinedelapaix.bandcamp.com so thank you so much for that, every bit helps....but I still need a little more to cover the costs for his 3-4 night stay in the pet hospital where he is receiving 24 hour care as well as tests, feeding and infusions. Right now we don't know the final cost of the medical treatment for Reece but the minimum amount will be €1200 in total. If you can spare something to help cover the vet bills I would be forever grateful. I don't have family to rely on for this kind of help so am relying on the kindness of friends, animal lovers and people who appreciate my music and want to help Reece. In return you will have my gratitude as well as Reece's I am sure....but I also want to do something special for everyone who has supported Reece and I. I will be starting a small recording project over the winter; an EP CD called 'music for cats and sensitive humans'. It will be a little different from what I have done before...more ambient, more instrumental and dreamy without lyrics. I have decided to dedicate this CD to all the people who donate to Reece's vet bills and I will get Reece to join in as well offering some purring and sounds to help with the atmosphere. Everyone who has donated will get a copy of the CD with their name dedication. As of writing this we have heard that Reece is doing well and eating a little on his own. He still has a few nights in hospital as well as tests so I am keeping my fingers crossed that things keep going well. If you prefer to donate via paypal, bank transfer or want to buy some of my music or pre book me for a house concert please contact me privately via or http://www.facebook.com/iamemalinedelapaix for the details/links. Once again, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU so much for your help. x Emaline & Reecey

Guizmo Osthéosarcome, Malamute de l'Alaska

Guizmo Osthéosarcome, Malamute de l'Alaska

Bonjour, Notre Guizmo de la Coleen d'Urok, Malamute de l'Alaska, est atteint par un osthéosarcome, un cancer des os très agressif et très douloureux, qui évolue généralement très rapidement avec une issue fatale. Cet osthéosarcome s'est déclaré sur la patte arrière droite. Après une batterie d'examens dont un scanner (600 €), il se trouve qu'il n'y a pas de métastases dans les autres membres et dans les autres organes.  Nous avions le choix entre :* faire simplement des soins palliatifs pour gèrer la douleur, avec une médiane d'espérance de vie à 2 mois (le moins cher)* l'amputer du membre atteint et ne rien faire d'autre; l'os n'étant plus là, la douleur disparait, après les douleurs liées à l'amputation. Médiane d'espérance de vie : 4 mois (frais 500€)* L'amputer et faire une chimiothérapie : plus de douleur (à part celle temporaire liée à l'amputation) et une médiane d'espérance de vie de 18 mois. Prix : très cher Après de longues réfléxions et discutions avec plusieurs vétérinaires, et vu que Guizmo est relativement jeune (7 ans) et qu'il n'a pas de métastase dans les autes organes, nous avons décidé de prendre la troisième solution : amputation et chimio. Guizmo a donc été amputé le 1 aôut 2018 et a eu sa première chimio le 20 aôut 2018. Il y aura encore 3 chimios supplémentaires.  Cette cagnotte a été mise en place pour nous aider à participer au frais, et nous aider à prolonger le plus possible la vie du beau Guizmo qui a toujours eu un grand succès dans les expositions, de part sa beauté, son image de puissance, mais aussi sa gentillesse. Guizmo a toujours été disponible pour une caresse ou une photo, à nous de le lui rendre. Avec juste un clic, vous pouvez nous aider à soigner Guizmo :* chacun donne ce qu'il veut* tous les paiements sont 100% sécurisés* Pourquoi Leetchi.com ? c'est facile et transparentMerci  HelloOur Guizmo de la Coleen d'Urok is affected by osteosarcoma, a very aggressive and very painful bone cancer, which usually progresses very rapidly with a fatal outcome. This osteosarcoma occurred on the right rear leg. After a battery of exams including a scanner (600 €), there is no metastasis in the other limbs and other organs. We had the choice between:* simply do palliative care to manage pain, with a median life expectancy at 2 months (the cheapest)* amputate the affected limb and do nothing else; the bone is no longer there, the pain disappears, after the pains related to the amputation. Median life expectancy: 4 months (500 € fee)* amputate and chemotherapy: no more pain (except temporary pain du to amputation) and a median life expectancy of 18 months. Price: very expensiveAfter long reflections and discussions with several veterinarians, and since Guizmo is relatively young (7 years old) and he has no metastasis in the other organs, we decided to take the third solution: amputation and chemo. Guizmo was amputated on August 1, 2018 and had his first chemo on August 20, 2018. There will be another 3 chemios. This pot money has been set up to help us participate in the expenses, and help us to prolong as much as possible the life of the beautiful Guizmo who has always had great success in the dog shows, because of its beauty, its image of power, but also his kindness. Guizmo has always been available for a caress or a photo, it's up to us to give it back to him. With just 1-click you can help us look after Guizmo :* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secure* Why Leetchi.com? It's easy & transparent!Thank you!
