Review for Harmony Fund Inc, Holden, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The very special thing about this particular animal rescue organisation,is the way they help individuals like myself,Lamia, in remote places,where help is needed urgently for the mistreated animals that I and a couple of other volunteers take care of.I live on a remote island in Greece and had it not been for the Harmony Fund supporting my work,and that of others such as myself,many animals would still be in deplorable conditions.I want to express my gratitude on behalf of all the neglected creatures of the island of Amorgos in Greece, to this non profit ,and particularly to Laura Simpson,Jenny and Jim Desmond for their moral support,veterinary advice and sincere care from a distance which has kept me going at times when I had almost collapsed from emotional,and financial pressure. By helping to provide financial aid for spaying,neutering and vet meds as well as by contributing to the feeding programs of stray cats,chained dogs,starving ducks and geese, donkeys and mules, they make it possible for me to "make a difference"and reduce the misery of even the'worst"cases of animals that are abused.The Harmony Fund carries out admirable work,reaching remote parts of the world where their back up is really "rescuing"animals in desperate need of care.Thank you all out there for your support!!!

Review for Animal Zone International Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Living on a remote island in the Agean sea in Greece where conditions for stray dogs and abused dogs,horses and mules are deplorable,and after 15 years of selflessly helping these animals to survive in these cruel conditions where the attitude towards these helpless creatures are reminiscent of the middle ages,I feel very grateful towards the support of AZI which has helped us(few volunteers)to make significant changes to the existing situation.Thanks to their generous support,we are in the lucky position to have regular sterilising projects,the availability of a vet to provide medical care(though somewhat limited due to the lack of some equipment),and now a rented space so that we,now a locally established animal welfare society,can house and nurse cats and dogs post op or whilst receiving treatment.AZI has also made it possible for us to save a horse and some mules and has provided a proper stable and exercise area where they can be sheltered.Above all,the existence of such facilities has helped open up the local narrow mentality somewhat,though we are still a long way from reaching our goal of changing these attitudes.A great number of abused,neglected chained dogs and several stray cats have had the possibility of being adopted through a foreign organisation which insists on a series if tests to be carried out before dogs can travel and on the sterilising of the dogs first.All this would not be possible without the financial support of AZI.The costs involved are too great for individual volunteers and we could not manage without the funds we receive from AZI.I personally greatly appreciate their understanding and compassion and their total dedication to our cause.
