an update

Many ask for updates on the court case we await Chania court’s decision on our perjury claims against Xenakis/Mousourakis. Meanwhile the criminal case is proceeding through the court system we are so lucky to have your support and such a fantastic lawyer (Maria Papadaki).

Despite the strain of vexatious litigation our rescue cats give us the will to carry on:



Now in the UK safe from abuse after months of vet care/nursing/foster care were thrilled to say he is idolized & adored by his adopter. Thanks to all of you who helped us rescue this darling boy.



This week released back to his furry friends/colony after spinal trauma/tail amputation he had months of rehabilitation/nursing care almost fully recovered now running around watched over by Bev & Lorna.



On the streets sick suffering from advanced kidney disease, took a joint effort between us, Natasa (Apicorno) who took Fluffy to our vet, the lovely Alexandria who with our financial help has taken her home for end-of-life care.

We need sponsors for Fluff’s vet bills & food.



Dying on the street dehydration/infection pus pouring from his nose scooped up by Heather tame & familiar with litter trays he must have been abandoned. Parasites treated, vet check under sedation bloods for everything including FIV/FeLV. A young boy 18 months of age super affectionate we were all devastated but not surprised when his tested FIV positive. We had the dilemma he can’t go back on the streets to die an awful death; he needs treatment the sinus infection is clearing with antibiotics. With love and good care, he should live a normal life indoors.

Please can anyone in Europe/UK give this poor boy a loving home?



She has crept into the house…. Recovered from the trauma of back leg amputation, left with arthritis pain she now has good pain relief, lost weight is running around again. Peggy still needs a loving home we don’t have the time to give her what she needs lots of cuddles, attention she loves humans can anyone give her a home?

Elmo kitten


Hand reared after found collapsed by tourists on the roadside his umbilical cord still attached with Gary & Sarah foster parents having great fun with Colin his adopted brother! Sadly, Colin has a home to go to but Elmo does not surely someone can adopt this utterly gorgeous boy he adores cuddles toddling around exploring about 5-6 weeks of age.

Finally Trevor the sweet water turtle…yes we did say turtle!


Crushed twice by a car now our honorary cat as he must have 9 lives! Under instruction from vets/turtle rescue he had emergency superglue & dressing tape sutures to his wounds mostly we glued ourselves! He needs 6 weeks care for the shell to knit together then we will release back into the wild in a stream far from cars.

Please ADOPT, DONATE, most of all FOSTER or VOLUNTEER we cannot do this without you all!

A New Year Begins

greek translation follows & printable version in pdf format

The Greek world of animal rescue has been turned on its head by the new law passed last year, Animal Welfare law 4830/2021.

It is a disaster in our opinion, facilitating a witch hunt by the Greek Vet Association aided by self-serving people profiting from stray animal municipality contracts.
