At ASCA, we have dozens of loving, beautiful dogs waiting to be adopted. They are either rescued from situations of abuse or neglect, or they were born on the streets and living as strays.
We foster rescued dogs and cats in our homes and on private lands. We provide personal 24/7 care as we prepare them for their forever homes. Our rescued pets are healthy, housebroken, friendly with other animals and they just adore children!
We focus our efforts on animals in need in the district of Achaia, Greece, in the cities of Patras, Aighion and Chalandritsa.
ASCA also participates in rescues across Greece when the animals need special handling and rehabilitation.
In cooperation with well-respected organizations abroad, we find safe, qualified homes throughout Europe and the United States. Our goal is to educate people about crucial issues that affect animal welfare, especially the importance of spaying and neutering, to decrease pet over-population, which is the root problem of so much suffering.
The future for our rescues is grim here in Greece. Appropriate adoptive families are hard to find. Many Greeks are ill-informed and reluctant to change their views on animal care. Add to that, Greece's continuing financial crisis and many families are forced to make the hard choice of providing for their children or their pets. Even some of our most dedicated volunteers and supporters can no longer afford to give their time to foster our animals or make even the smallest financial contributions.
This is why we need your help. With your support, we can continue our vital work - alleviating the suffering of innocent dogs and cats and providing these deserving animals with a future free from pain and suffering.
