Our last post on this GAR, Greek Animal Rescue blog, related to the fact that officials on the Greek Island of Crete had reneged on an agreement. Instead of following the neutering and spaying program promised it looked set to adopt a brutal approach. In line with Europeans countries such as the Ukraine and Romania, Crete was going to kill stray dogs.
Tourists have been staying away from the Greek Islands due to the current economic crisis. Policies such as the mass slaughter of animals will do nothing to persuade them to return.
We visited Crete many years ago loving the place and promising ourselves that we would return. We will not now nor in the future unless animal welfare on the island drastically changes.
TEK makes no apologies for the images shown in the slideshow attached to this article. Grim as they are they need to be viewed. Once you have done so please follow the links to more information and a petition. Your signature is needed.
You can also voice your concerns with Greek embassies in your country and ensure that officials know that people outside of Greece know what is going on. Also that they will not visit the country until the Greek's involved have a proper change of heart for the better. Thank-you
BEWARE!!!! The videos that follow are shocking!!!!!!
