Vassilia works tirelessly for the sake of providing a better life for her dogs and after many well used years, during which hundreds of dogs have passed through towards a better life, our team have witnessed first-hand, the state of disrepair Vassilia’s shelter now finds itself in. Her house is also regularly taken over by puppies, as the shelter site isn’t sterile enough to ensure they’re not at risk of catching anything before being vaccinated.
The shelter, much of which has been built, maintained, and expanded by hand desperately needs to be upgraded, so that the dogs in its care have a safe and sterile place to call home, where they can run and play to their heart’s content.
Thanks to funds raised from an exclusive art show in 2019, selling pieces by Lesvos resident and friend of both Vassilia and the Foundation, Matthew Usmar Lauder, we began our fundraising journey to help re-build the shelter. Further sponsorship has also now been acquired and we are looking forward to being able to report on exciting developments in the coming months!
It’s thanks to this kindness and generosity that many more vulnerable strays dogs in need will soon have a future-proof place to call home.
If a regular donation towards a specific project is set up and we subsequently cease to provide support in the future, any recurring donations will be allocated to the areas of our other work requiring the most support.
