Dog of the month: Nora

Please help us to find a loving home for our dogs. All you have to do is SHARE this post, so they are widely spread.

Female - castrated – born 11/2015 - 12 kg - 45 cm

Nora was dumped by someone in our HalfWayHouse in November 2018, probably unfit for hunting…
Nora is a very friendly girl. She is a medium sized hunting dog. Very shy at first, but when she knows you she comes for cuddles. She loves to play and go out for a walk. At first she pulls a bit on the lead, but she is a clever girl and learns fast.
Cars are like big monsters to her, so she will need some gentle guiding to get used to traffic.

Nora needs a family that understands that she needs time and let her explore things in her own pace (so no small children).
She is fine with other dogs, cats and driving in the car.

Happy New Year

The ACT-team wishes you a fantastic 2020 with above all health, happiness and love.

We thank you very much for your support the last year and we hope we can count on you again this year.

Our wish for 2020 is to find all of our dogs a loving home. Yes, that is not easy but some of them are already too long with us and with your help we can do it.

In the next days we will start our “Dog of the month” action. One dog will be pinned at the top of our Facebook page with description and pictures, as well as here on our website. All we ask of you is to share that post again and again, every month. Hopefully in this way it will be seen by the right family. Because that family is already out there, they just haven’t seen the dog yet 😉

Christmas Bazaar 15-12-2019

After all the rain and storm on Saturday the weather on Sunday was lovely. A perfect day for our Christmas Bazaar.
The fact that the Women's Club To Palataki moved their event from Saturday to Sunday only made it better. Together we formed a nice attraction for all visitors.

And we raised a wonderful € 551,00 for the animals!

We thank Taverna Stelios for using his place, Hakuna Matata for lending us his grill, Jackie for making beautiful handmade products, Jürgen for donating and selling the glühwein, Gitti for making and selling waffles, Arno for grilling the sausages and Petra for organising it all.

And of course we thank all the other stand holders and the people who visited us.

We hope to see you next year again!

7 new puppies

A young man was jogging up the mountain in Potamia, when he saw a ripped open plastic bag with 7 very young puppies. Since he was on foot he couldn't take them with him. As soon as he could he called us and asked for help.

It was already getting dark, so we contacted Philip who lives in the area and asked if he could go with the young man to the place where he saw them and keep the puppies overnight. And so he did.
They were very lucky because the same night it started to rain and there was snowfall in the mountains. No way they would have survived that.
The next day Philip brought them to Kalivia where Tanja took them over.
They are 4 boys and 3 girls, approximately 10 days old.

Bottle feeding 7 puppies is quite a job, so if anyone on the island is willing to foster 2 or more of them, that would be a great help.
Also any donation, big or small, will be very helpful, thinking of 7x flea and worm treatment, vaccinations, microchip, etc.

Heavy rain

At 21st and 22nd November and again at 25th Thassos had to deal with very heavy rain. Large parts of the island were flooded and a lot damaged. We don't want to think how many animals got killed in the massive mud streams...

For Sophia, who takes care of the dogs in the HalfWayHouse, it was almost impossible to reach the shelter to feed them. But she didn't give up and got there and to her relieve she saw that they were fine. For a week the dirt road up there could not be used by car, so she had to walk every day.

But today the road was fixed so life for her, and the sheperds who have to take care of their animals, will be much easier now.
