POPULAR attractions at the recent Nutley Village Fete were excited dogs from Greek Animal Rescue. They were accompanied by charity workers Helen Hobday, Sarah Bagshawe and Cris Newport.
Sarah said: “Animals in Greece have very few friends. Poisoning of stray and owned dogs and cats is widespread throughout Greece and it claims countless lives every year. The only solution to reducing the number of strays on the streets is to tackle the problem at its source by sterilising owned dogs and cats. However many Greek people still regard neutering as a negative intervention in the animals’ lives although they don’t think twice about abandoning unwanted litters.”
The charity aims to help as many animals as it can by supporting shelters which take care of between 50-150 dogs, some cats and the odd donkey or horse. Finding good homes for some of them - including in the UK - is also important so space can be made for other needy cases. People at the fete flocked to pet these friendly dogs who cannot believe they have been so lucky as to fall on their paws.
