Who we are:
We are a registered charity (Charity number 3468) run by a small volunteer network of dog lovers who have worked for several years with our partner organisations. These include dog shelters in Cyprus, mainly in the Limassol, Paphos and Larnaca areas, and Zypernpfoten in Germany.
Our association exists to support our partners both financially and with practical help, and to promote the re-homing of dogs within Europe and Cyprus.
How do we achieve this?
We liaise with the shelters we support to identify the dogs most suitable to advertise on our website, to help find them a suitable, permanent new home – we will only offer dogs for adoption that we are confident are healthy and have good characters.
We ensure we have all the information that is available about their past history and health
We work with the shelters to provide training and socialisation for the dogs prior to re-homing so that they are ready to move on
We try to find foster homes for dogs, with priority given to the short term fostering of those dogs already selected for adoption. This gives them time to find out what being in a proper home is like, helps to further socialise the dog and also gives the opportunity for the foster carer to further assess the dog for health and behaviour.
During this time any additional training or health needs will be met
We assist the shelters where we can with food, vets bills and other expenses but this is always dependent on our own budget constraints – we operate solely with donations
We have now commenced our Education Programmes. We feel this is vitally important for the future progress of animal welfare in Cyprus - for more information please look at the Training and Education section of our website where you will see all the exciting new developments and initiatives we have
Fundraising – we are always looking for new ideas to raise the money needed to carry on with our work. All fund raising events will be published on our website and on our Facebook page
Our Mission Statement
Our association exists to support our partners both financially and with practical help, and to promote the re-homing of dogs within Europe and Cyprus. We also aim to improve the welfare of animals on the island via our Education and Training programmes and initiatives.
