These sort of announcements really do belong in the S.O.S. forum. So I am moving it there now.

I signed this petition a while back. It truly is horrific the way the country "manages" stray animals.

Thank you Lotsocats & Jeanie for signing.

My Mi Jauw and Roosje are Greek Cats.
I visit Greece now for about 25 years and I must say that the situation with the animals is improving. You find more and more people keeping pets in their houses, as before most animals only lived out in the streets.
That does not mean that the situation is good, far from that, but I see the first signs in the good direction.
The biggest problem is the goverment who does not support shelters etc.,or tries to improve anything. Killing is their only solution.
I do not belong to an organisation or have a cattery or something, but we try privately to do what we can. We live in Holland and go to our house in Athens 4 times a year for about 1 month. We take care of about 20 stray's which we spayed and neutered on our own account. 3 years ago we celebrated our wedding aniversary with a big party. Instead of asking presents we asked for money which we all used for the Greek cats. My sister in law who lives close by takes care of them during our absence.Another cat freak.
What happens now with the Olympics is a very bad thing and has to be stopped.
Indeed I hope that a lot of newbies will sign also.

I saw the most horrific animal documentary the other night. The festival takes place every year in Spain. They bring this poor donkey in to the town square and everyone in the town crowds in on this donkey until they crush it to death. I couldn't even watch it all I was crying to badly. I left the room.

What about the bulfights?
There are so many examples it's terrible.
The mentality of the people has to change as long as that does not happen nothing will change.

Agreed, the brutality is everywhere, and sadly it just seems to keep spreading...

Els, I have to praise you for taking care of those strays. You are truly an unselfish and admirable animal lover. That's above and beyond the call of duty! Wonderful!

Thank you, but let's say I just love animals.
