The Souda Shelter Project

Postby TweetTweet » Thu Jul 16, 2020 8:19 pm

Below is a copy/paste from an appeal by Network for Animals.

(I've never heard of it, nor Network for Animals) but might anyone here know if this shelter is going to be closed?

"On the Greek island of Crete, the Souda Shelter Project in Chania cares for 100 abandoned and abused dogs, many whom serve as therapy dogs for traumatized soldiers. Outrageously, local authorities say they will CLOSE THE SHELTER… because they “don’t like where it is located!”

It boggles the mind that heartless bureaucrats could pull the plug on the dogs and humans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that the dogs comfort. Chania’s previous mayor supported the shelter, but there’s a new mayor and now the Veterinary Department of Chania says it is issuing legal papers to shut it down."

Thank you.

Odd? This appears to be Network for Animals official web site and it does not show any activity on Crete at all?

The authorities are waging a war on some of the shelters, mostly those for dogs, and Souda is one them, my friends shelter Bronx Familia is another.

They don't believe that people save and care for animals for the love of animals, with no profit, and they want to shut them down. The dogs will be killed or all roaming the streets.

It doesn't make sense and its a terrible attitude.

We are all desperately trying to adhere to the new 'rules' that they are imposing as letting the dogs down who have been saved from terrible abuse, and abandoned, who are all treated by the vets and rehabilitated, doesn't bear thinking about.

Is the Souda Shelter the one in, or near, 'Nerokouros'; that's the only one I know in the area, but I'm sure someone will enlighten me? Thanks.
