The pups were left at the junction ring road/riverbed, where there used to be some garbage bins. Reportedly they had been there for at least a day. Within 2 hours after being notified yesterday afternoon, B organized a transport. One of them was still there and is now safely at Barbara’s.

Abandonned kittens near the road

Wednesday, June 6th, 2007

W.&B. S. are from Switzerland and they own a holidays house on Paros. They discovered 3 small kittens abandoned near the road; one of them was already dead, hit by a car. They rescued the remaining 2 and took them home. However they will be leaving at the end of next week and they are worried that the cats will not make it by themselves.

Puppies abandonned in the parking

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

Yossif is the manager of holidays rentals in the area of Livadia. Some of his guests were surprised to find 4 puppies in the nearby parking. A parking is of course not a proper home for puppies and their chances of survival can’t be a lot. The guests asked if there was nothing that could be done to save the puppies. Yossif called the Police who suggested to call PAWS.
Barbara was there a few hours later to pick the puppies.

Yossif, the rentals’ manager, and his guests are not worried anymore – Paros appears as an organized and civilized society! The puppies have many chances for a carefree life. Only Barbara feels a bit more the burden and worries about being able to continue for much longer!

Abandoned newborn kittens

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

Case:
Maria, a young woman from Naoussa, rescued yesterday evening 2 abandoned newborn kittens. We informed her that newborn kittens need to be bottle-fed every 2 hours.

Since no human resources can be available for that, it was decided that euthanasia was the right thing to do.

Puppy found on the road

Case:
M.U. who is a PAWS’ member and lives on the east-coast found a puppy on the road between Marpissa and Agios Yiorgos. She has reasons to believe that he was left on the side of the road by a passing car. She took the puppy home but cannot keep it because it is not being accepted by her dog.

Answer (by Nicolas):
I told M.U. that I needed to check the situation with Barbara before promising to take him in.

Currently:
the puppy was taken in by Barbara the same day, where it found many other puppies for company. He is the brown one in the middle.
