Roulis was once somebody’s puppy, which had a serious accident. As he grew, the injury from the accident became more and more evident. We will never know if his owner ever took him to the vet. What we do know is that instead of taking care of, as he was obliged , this wonderful warm and loving dog, Roulis was abandoned by his owner. Roulis was tied to a tree outside of a park. He was thrown out like a faulty toy!
We found Roulis 15 days ago outside the park. From the first minute we saw him, it was obvious he had a problem with his leg and that he was in pain. At first we hoped he was a lost dog and that his owner would reach out and come in contact with us. Unfortunately, nothing of the kind happened. The veterinarian’s findings and x-rays showed that Roulis has a ruptured joint which contains a small bone, a cuneonavicular joint. This is very painful for him and makes it difficult for him to have a normal life. In order for him to be rid of the problem and excruciating pain for the rest of his life and of course walk properly again, he needs a specialized operation. The operation and medical expenses will amount to 800 euros. He is only 10 months old and has the right to a normal life, without any more pain .
We ask for your help with a donation so that Roulis may be cured of his problem. So that he may be able to have a normal life , run, walk, go to the park, play with other dogs and most of all, have the equal chance of being adopted to a warm and loving family that he deserves.
llioupolis Animal Welfare Union is a non-profit, animal rescue organization established in 1997.Our main activities include the catching, rescuing and caring for stray animals caught in the Municipality of Ilioupolis and its vicinity.
Every year, the Society cares for, feeds, vaccinates and neuters approximately 300 strays, mainly cats and dogs, while also promoting the adoption of strays through various media.
Due to its charitable character, the organisation relies heavily on donations by its members and members of the public.
To rescue and protect strays and to promote animal welfare.
A Home and a Family for Every Stray
Our definition of a stray animal is: an animal which is outside the territory of a residence and is not being accompanied by its owner or guardian.
We constantly work alongside the veterinarians in our area to ensure that all strays in the care of the Society are properly vaccinated, neutered and cared for. The Ilioupolis Animal Welfare Society also arranges for the treatment and surgeries of those animals that have suffered trauma due to traffic accidents. Unfortunately, such accidents occur frequently due to the heavy traffic in the Ilioupolis area.
We also cooperate, at our own cost, with private boarding kennels and catteries which provide shelter to strays with health problems that have been found unfit to live in the streets.
Are you far away from us? You can:
*Make a donation. Any donation small or big is extremely helpful to us and we are very grateful for any amount.
*Virtually adopt an animal. Some of the animals we care for cannot be adopted particularly due to health problems or disability, advanced age or because of their «special» personality. These animals are under our protection and live either in foster homes or in kennels. We need aid with their kennel expenses, their food, their medicines and their vet care.
*Become a member. Our annual membership is €30. You will receive your personal “membership certificate”
Any donation, no matter how big or small, always proves extremely helpful to us.
