My name is Voula Tzanou and i am 51 year old.I am volunteering for stay animals (dogs and cats) for approximentelly 10 years and i am always in the searching of help.These days I am trying to make an organasation with my friends so that I can receive more help. The first dog that i saved was a mother of 8 puppies which was the first stimulating action for my volunteering .After that , i took care alone of every animal in need that was in my road.I would take care of it,took it to the doctor for vaccines or any surgeries ,sterilazation ,i would fostercare it and try to give it for adoption. After so many years of countless emergencies and stories of stray animals , some of them ending happy and some of them ending with tears of despair , i am trying to find economic help so that i would help more and more animals.
Today i take care of approximentelly 130 stray dogs at the forrest of Seih Sou were the illnesses ,puppies,car accidents and abadontments are endless .Also i am feeding 100 cats in the city of Sikies and Ano poli were also the illnesses and kittens are also countless.My home is converted to a shelter as i am always fostercaring sick animals ,blind animals , paralised , or animals after surguries or puppies and kittens and generally animals that are in emergency or danger.Today i am at the situtation that i foster 30 dogs and 30 cats in my house .
At this point that i am today i need help for feeding all these animals dogs and cats so i need catfood and dogfood.I also need help with the medicines ,the doctors ,the surgeries , (especially the orthopeadic ones which is the more expensive) because i owe much money to vet clinics such as the clinic of Agathagelidis in Thessaloniki and the clinic of Dimitris Mantzios in Thessaloniki.
The reason why i need help is because i am unemployed the last 3 years (i believe you know the situation in Greece).Also even when i had a job the needs of these stay animals are very big and i could not manage the situation , with my low salary .
I will try to explain how many money all these animals need every month.
• Feeding: Every month I have need standard for these
Ø Stray dogs of Seih Sou : 1200kg dry dogfood each month
Ø Stray dogs that i take care home : 400kg dry dogfood each month
Ø Stray cats at my home and outside : 140kg dry catfood each month
About the doctors and the medicines I do not know what emergency will occur every month .Also the abandonments are every day. The last 6 months someone abandoned 25 puppies all of them sick and in need of doctors and hospitalization. For the medicines I will pay for sure 200 euros every month .For the doctors ,hospitalizations and surgeries i have to pay every month more than 500 euros .
If I had any kind of financial help I would not owe money for the foods and the doctors ,because this is a problem when I owe a big amount of money they will not serve me further until I pay . So if I had help I will be able to feed them as much they need and took them to the doctors every time they need . I would not have any dilemmas of what emergency is most in danger . I was a lot of times in the situation that I had to choose the most endarged situation and close my eyes for the others because I could not manage.
