The Municipality of Apokoronas obeys faithfully the legislative ordinances of stray animals’ well-being and protection, as piece of our culture’s evidence. After my assumption of duties regarding the handling of stray animals, in partnership with the Mayor Mr. Har. Koukianakis, we set in motion the below actions:
- There will be an independent office for the handling of stray animals in the Town Hall’s building. Full-time employee will be working there. Communication telephone: 2825340321.
- From now on, we will be recording each stray animal around our villages in order to feed and take better care of them with the aid of Municipality’s employees and volunteers.
- We allot extra money so as the neutering, hygiene care and the alimentation will be increased. Also, we will help with the necessary buildings’ beautification and upgrade, so as the animals to be taken care of temporarily there and totally healed.
- We will fully protect stray animals so as unpleasant and embarrassing situations will not exist any more. Animals deserve our attention and we should correspond to this right of them.
Apokorona’s Municipality, even there are adversities, is doing its best to deal with the issue of stray animals immediately and effectively, providing human and economic resources, facilities and every useful means that can help with their management. In this difficult activity, we want you to stand by us and not to judge us. We ask from you to continue this road that we have already “opened” for the important issue of the stray animals’ handling.
Responsible for stray animals
A massive thank you to all of the 140 plus animal lovers who supported us by coming to our charity event last weekend!
We were overwhelmed to see so many enjoy themselves and party till the early hours of the morning.
The musicians contributed to the great atmosphere and donated some of their fees to the animals you have our thanks.
Christine Claussen’s donated jewellery has made six people very happy!
There were many donated raffle prizes, so kind of you all & the taverna staff of Seven Souls worked very hard under immense pressure.
We had many volunteers assisted with so many things, Linda & Phil, Heather & Graham were the main team who organised and arranged the night with us, without them we could not have done this.
You should all be proud we raised €2000 before expenses shared between CAP & CPR for our local strays.
Pippy (tri color) is another found blind in a builders yard all her siblings died one of our Greek volunteers removed her and asked us to take her.
We need your help to find a home for Pippy kitten she came in eyes stuck shut suffering hideous cat flu. Once the antibiotics worked and her eyes opened we realised she had eyes but they were not working.
Pippy is around 10 weeks of age she reacts to bright light but behaves like a totally blind kitten, she responds to voices/noise and although scared at times this is not stopping her playing and running around.
She is just lovely, she uses her litter tray, loves cuddles but is definitely wanting to play and has a strong will. Pippy needs to be an indoor cat she can be around other cats she is just not safe to be outside.
As usual she will be vaccinated, neutered and passport provided should she be adopted elsewhere.
Sadly Pippy died during an anaesthetic even after all she had been through in finding her forever home
The European commission president, the proud owner of a pooch called Plato, has taken a personal interest in the fate of the pet passport scheme, under which animals in good health can be exempted from going into quarantine as they travel around Europe.
With a no-deal scenario looking increasingly likely, Mina Andreeva, a commission spokeswoman, disclosed that advice to pet owners would be published in the coming months, after Juncker highlighted the urgency of the matter “several times”.
Plato, who was rescued from a Greek island by a German organisation, lives with Juncker in his home country of Luxembourg, where, the commission president has joked, Plato ignores commands because he has yet to master French.

This very affectionate cat (who in the past has had many kittens) visited her UK cat lovers every summer. Last year she was neutered in the Dimos program, however on their return this year they where distraught to see her covered in weeping infected burns, without intervention she would have died a very painful death from infection.
Distressingly for all concerned we guess she had been set alight with lighter fuel.
She was brought to us for emergency treatment and is being nursed back health.
July 2018: Her loving UK adopters have now taken her home, she is recovering with lots of love
