GAR Dogs available for adoption

There are hundreds of thousands of stray animals in Greece and they all deserve a loving home. Unfortunately we can bring over only a small number due to the expenses involved. Below are photos and details of dogs who are currently ready for rehoming.

If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please complete our pre adoption questionnaire form which is available to download in
MS WORD and PDF formats. Once we have received your completed form we will contact you to discuss your application in detail.

All GAR dogs are microchipped, vaccinated and sterilised and 'prepared' for entering the UK according to DEFRA requirements. In addition, they are blood-tested for tick-borne and other diseases. These tests are not required under the PETS travel scheme, but we feel they are important to ensure that adopted dogs are healthy.

As we are only able to home check in the South-East, potential adopters must live in the following areas: East and West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Essex, parts of Kent and Hertfordshire. We will of course consider adopting to homes outside of the South-East provided we a have a volunteer in your area who is able to carry out a home check.

LUCY
Lucy was found with her mother and brother close to a highway in Thessaloniki. They had obviously been abandoned moments ago. Lucy weighs approximately 12kg and is around 2 years old. She has been staying at a pet hotel run by a local man who assisted the Argos Animal Welfare society by allowing some strays to stay there at a reduced fee. Sadly the owner of the hotel recently passed away and now we are looking to find a permanent home for her. Given that she has been living at the hotel for 2 years she has never been inside a house and is therefore not house trained. She will need time to adjust to living in a home and will require patience and reassurance. While Lucy is a shy girl, once you get to know her she is extremely playful and energetic.
Lucy is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
If you are interested in adopting Lucy, please contact:

Given that he has been living at the hotel for 2 years he has never been inside a house and is therefore not house trained.

ARIS
Aris is about 3-4 years old and weighs almost 30kg. He had been living as a stray in Thessaloniki since 2011 but was removed from the streets by Argos Animal Welfare Society when locals threatened to poison the strays. He has been staying at a pet hotel run by a local man who assisted the society by allowing some strays to stay there at a reduced fee. Sadly the owner of the hotel recently passed away and now we are looking to find a permanent home for Aris. Aris is quite a calm dog and has been living at the hotel for almost a year. Having lived on streets for a number of years he is struggling to adjust to life indoors and is not house trained. He has not been tested with cats but being a stray for so long it is likely that he will not be good with them. He walks well on the lead.
Aris is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

She was in a pitiful state but after receiving veterinary care and much needed love and attention she has shown herself to be a very sweet, affectionate cat. The only thing you see in her eyes is gratitude and the need for a family who will love her. Her only company is a little tom cat which was saved the same day (after being removed from the inside of a car engine!!!). You can view video footage of Clio HERE.

GOLIATH
Goliath belonged to a man who rescued him from an abusive owner. His rescuer adored Goliath and took him everywhere, but the man sadly died in a car accident. As a reult Goliath was left forgotten in his owner's garden for almost 3 weeks without food, before neighbours contacted a shelter in Megara. He's estimated to be around 4-5 years old. Despite such tragedy Goliath can only be described as a big affectionate teddy bear. He walks well on the lead, is well behaved in the car and is very good with kids. He is also good with other dogs, provided they are friendly to him. Goliath loves attention and having his belly rubbed. Who can give this big 'bear' a second chance?
