To feed; rescue; treat; sterilize and get adopted; the strays of Greece.

Main image

The situation for stray dogs (and cats) in Greece is appalling. It's estimated there are 1 million dumped pets. Kind locals do what they can but they need help. We established Greek Dog Rescue at the beginning of 2017. So far, we've sent 62 dogs out of Greece to loving homes; got 25 adopted within Greece and set up two feeding, treatment and sterilization programmes. Plus we act as a resource to tourists wanting to save a dog or cat.

We need your help to continue this work. All money gets spent directly on the care of the animals. Volunteers do all the work. Thank you

Use of funds

Food; treatments; vets; transport to new homes; fosters and sterilizations.

As we approach Christmas 2019, and our 3rd anniversary, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for helping us rehome 62 rescues to wonderful families outside of Greece. AND to rehome many locally. AND to continue our feed, treat, rescue programme. We have 12 dogs ready for their forever homes. With your continued support, we can keep helping them. God Bless

    Keep up the good work! These dogs need to be saved, options like enabling the locals to feed the dogs seems like a very cost effective way of helping the most dogs out, your other option if rejoining he dogs to locals is also very good. Are you buying bulk lots of cheap dog food and sending it over to Greece? Good luck and thanks for helping these dogs.
