Review for Trikala Shelter Dogs (Greece), Trikala, , Greece

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a UK admin for Trikala since Febuary 2012 and have been amazed by what these ladies do on a daily basis and felt a need to help them even further. I knew that just going by myself was going to make a difference but if more people could go then we could achieve so much more. So I started to plan for a group to travel over to Trikala. Finally after months of planning 3 volunteers from the UK and 2 volunteers from the USA arrived in Trikala with one aim to help to the maxmium possible. During our short time at the shelter we was able to build roofs for some of the shelters, take trees and over grown plants down, unblock the drainage canal, clean up, gromming of dogs and to give the dogs some extra special attention. Each of us who have attended all agree that what these ladies do it remarkable. They have dedicated their lives to this and never complain or ask for anything. They desperately need help to make this possible.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Trikala

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help get them constant funding for the shelter and paid salaries for the ladies who currently work for free so they do not have to worry anymore.
