Hello dear readers. I will try to keep this short and clear. I have been taking care of stray animals in my city for many years, food, shelter and medical care if needed. I live in Greece and as you know the economic situation here for the past decade or so is really bad, people have a ton of problem so caring for animals is the least of their concerns. Greek cities don’t have organized animal shelters and those that do the conditions are terrible, the whole system is depending on personal donations and those are pretty scarce for the last years. I lost my job about 4 years ago and really struggling I live in a small apartment with my parents and a rescue cat named Lazarus and always fighting with my family cause we can barely make ends meet and I spend money buying cats and dogs foods, almost everyone I know is telling to just give up and stop caring about them and just look after myself, but I can’t do that, I don’t want to do that. Don’t get me wrong I am looking after myself and I am trying really hard to find a job and get back on my feet but as I wrote earlier the economic crisis plus me living in a small town makes it really tough to find something. For as long as I am searching for a job I want to continue helping animals in need as much as possible. My dream is to raise enough money to start my own animal shelter and help animals all over the country, I know this is a big dream especially for a country like Greece where bureaucracy is brutal. I asked around and talked to vets and city officials from my city and there are no plans from the city council to do anything about stray animals even though the law says that they have to, they don’t care. My first priority is to keep being able to help and feed as many animals as I can and if god willing and with your help we can raise enough money for the shelter project to be realized then that would be a dream come true. I know it is a big commitment and I am going to need a lot of support but with enough resources I know I can make it happen. So to every animal lover out there whatever you can spare is greatly appreciated. With just a little bit of love you change an animals life forever. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
