Cyprus is overrun with unwanted and stray dogs. Shelters are full, and the nightmare of finding the financial support and the volunteers necessary to care for, and rehome these dogs, is a harsh reality that is played out day in day out, year after year.
In Cyprus, many beautiful, healthy dogs are destroyed every day…it’s a heart-breaking situation. Dogs are dumped at the pound, or in the middle of fields with no hope of shelter.
We have rescued dogs who have been tied to trees and abandoned, thrown from cars on the motorway, puppies dumped in bins in plastic bags, hunting dogs abandoned if they can’t hunt, or are thrown out at the end of the hunting season…the list is endless and the dogs just keep coming.
At any given time there are 120-160 dogs under our care. We receive limited help from the government and municipalities. The legal framework on animal welfare in Cyprus is not robust and change is slow. In the meantime, lives need to be saved.
To save lives and relieve the suffering of dogs in need of care and attention by the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of stray and unwanted dogs in Cyprus.
Thanks to the generosity of our adopters and supporters, over 3000 dogs have been rescued and rehomed since 2010 and they are now in loving homes across the UK, mainland Europe, Cyprus and beyond.
