Rescued & Rehomed Strays 1

Whether it be groups or individual GreekSTRAYS, all have their own stories to tell and one day they will be written.

As a rescuer and an active animal lover, it is a task that is never ending!!!  Financially and emotionally, it is extremely draining. Over the years many Greek strays have been rescued and rehomed, but it just doesn't seem to be getting any easier.  Cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, young, old, new born, sick, disabled, dying, dumped, yet miraculously most have survived and gone on to better lives in new homes with new loving families in various European countries, but this in itself is proving more and more difficult to achieve.  The local colony strays are in addition to the 'rescues' and naturally food is the biggest expenditure, with so many mouths to feed, especially during the winter period when they are cold, wet and hungry.  We hope and pray that this year will be easier.
