This is a space dedicated to Charities and Charity Events for humans and animals. I want to give to associations and groups the chance to have more visibility for the causes they promote.
Charities will rotate every 2 or 3 months and they can be contacted directly following the links to their websites/pages.
Animal Rescue Kos (ARK) is a non profit making legally registered charity since 16 June 2010, trying to help the animal population, through sterilization, education and alleviating the day to day suffering of the animals on Kos, Greece. We have a non euthanasia policy and believe every dog deserves a chance of a happy life. We do not approve or condone any religion or political party but work with anyone in order to help the animals. No committee member gets paid for the work they do with the organization.Where we are now –To date we have sterilised 280 dogs and 48 cats. We have re-homed around 20 of these cats and 214 dogs either on Kos or abroad. At present we have 52 dogs in our care (February 2013). The majority are on the land that we have a lease on until December 2013. We have two full time carers on the land, Rita and Colin who take care of all the dogs and cats needs.
All of our dogs are sterilised or castrated, fully vaccinated, blood tested, treated for parasites and micro-chipped. We realise the importance of sterilising animals that will also travel abroad so we are not exporting a Greek problem to other countries.
We are also trying to help local people financially to sterilise their animals in certain situations and when funds allow. Reed more on our website: www.animalrescuekos.com
We have, in the last year, purchased a 11,000 sqm piece of land in a remote area on which to build a place for the animals of Kos. Read more on www.animalrescuekos.com.
To date we receive no grants from the Greek Government, or any other organisations.
We need help to continue our very important work sterilising cats and dogs on the island, which we do all through the year. If you would like to sponsor a dog or cat sterilisation more details are on our website www.animalrescuekos.com
We have three methods of paying in money. An account with the Alpha bank, for which we had to supply all of our details, for the banks solicitor as we are a charity. A vote had to be taken at committee level so that two people could operate this account.
We also use Paypal,which is transferred directly into the above account. Our Paypal email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
