Why do we need to Home Dogs? Dogs increase the quality of life by giving focus to the day. The daily walking routine can have tremendous health benefits. Health studies have shown that owning a dog can lower a person’s blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease. Dogs are non-judgmental and offer unconditional love as well as being entertaining and offer the opportunity to increase social interaction. Dog owners frequently talk about little else. So why are there so many dogs needing homes? There are many dog shelters in Cyprus, all bursting at the seams. There are the ones run by charities such as PAWS, P.A.R.C., and Paphiakos, and in addition there are the municipal shelters and of course a variety of private facilities. All of the shelters attempt to provide for unwanted, abandoned, lost and unloved dogs. They arrive at these shelters in depressingly large numbers and in a variety of conditions ranging from barely alive to fit and healthy. There are also a large number of puppies of all types which are dumped in cardboard boxes. The reasons why dogs end up at shelters fall into these main categories: Simple abandonment – very often of hunting dogs at the end of the hunting season in March; perhaps the dog has not proved to be a good hunter or is simply too inconvenient to keep until next season.

Our boy Kimy is still looking for a sponsor!
Kimy was born about 2004. He came to the shelter with his girlfriend Tofy in August 2009. Until then, his life was perfect and he was happy in his home. With Tofy he had a good friend and he had a good family with lots of love.
Tragically, Kimy, Tofy and their owner went for a walk along the cliffs on a terrible day in the summer of 2009. The owner fell down the cliff and died from it. After this incident everything happened very quickly. Kimy´s mum and the daughter were grief stricken, as they suffered a big loss, but their health did not allow them to continue to care for Kimy and Tofy, and so Kimy had to move, with Tofy, to the shelter.
At first it was very difficult for them because they had previously had such a good and beautiful life. Unfortunately, due to his health problems, Kimy has not had a chance to find a new home. Now his girlfriend, Tofy, has also died and Kimy is all alone and he suffers.
We are looking for a sponsor for Kimy who will support him from the distance and helps us a little with vet costs.
Would you like to be his sponsor? Click *here* to find out how can you help.
