Wintertime quiet? No not really!

Never a dull moment in animal care.

In the first months 3 new dogs came in: Quinny, Salomon and Tosca.
They all need their first vet check, worm and flea treatment, vaccinations and castration.
Meanwhile Tosca is castrated, Quinny has an appointment on Thursday and Salomon will be done next week. Earlier we had Olga, Nora, Jeanie and Kostaki castrated. That needed a bit more organisation because the nights were still very cold, so we had to find them a foster for a couple of days.
Seven castrations is about € 700 so we were glad that we received a generous donation for food and medical care from the Dutch organisation Wereldasielen last year to cover the costs.



Some repairs were made at the HalfWayHouse and at the same time new stone dog houses with a ridge at the front were made in the old part of the enclosure. What’s the use of straw to keep them warm if it is all over the place. This way it will stay inside where it belongs.



Jutta from Germany contacted us to ask if we could use medical stuff like bandages. Well, yes of course! She has already sent a few parcels, also with beautiful handmade items to sell on the bazar.



In February we had our first pub quiz in restaurant Oneiro Zoïs in Dasilio Prinos. We had great fun and collected more than € 300.



In January Petra flew Bobby to his new family in Germany. In the winter it is hard to find flight escorts, we found a cheap ticket, so we brought him ourselves. Another happy dog and a happy family.



Also Lord and Nora found a new family and they will travel soon.

We need your help

We try not to beg for money but raise as much money as we can ourselves with events, plus the donations you kindly give us.
BUT NOW WE DESPERATELY NEED YOUR HELP!

Recently 3 dogs were just dumped again in our HalfWayHouse. This means even more expenses (3x castration, 3x vaccinations, 3x worm and flea treatment, not to mention food), where we are already struggling with money.

This year we received almost 50% less donations than the year before and spent much more on food because we had more mouths to feed. Also we were facing more than € 1000 extra costs for expanding the enclosure, although the municipality promised to provide us the materials, which never happened.

For the first time in our history it looks like we will not have enough money to feed the dogs during the winter. Therefor we ask you to help us.

1351 persons have liked our Facebook page. If everyone would donate only € 1 it would pay for 4 months food!
PLEASE HELP US WITH A (SMALL) DONATION!

Of course you can also order some of the beautiful cards Jackie makes, you support us and get something in return.
