Mission Statement

Mission "We are a young, results-oriented Greek NGO of high integrity. Thanks to our project experience and passionate commitment, we ensure that donations and volunteer work support animals in need as effectively as possible." Who we are and where we operate: Thomas Rescues was founded in November 2021 as a Greek animal welfare organisation. We are a small team, inspired by the founder Thomas, who has dedicated his life in helping stray animals. Our goal is to treat the animals as our family and provide them the care they deserve. That is why we care for older and sick animals too as well as for yound and disabled and we do no promote unnecessary medical interventions if the quality of life of the animal is not compromised as this is a no kill shelter.

Description

Thomas, himself a Greek from Nea Kallikratia, could no longer bear the sight of such suffering animals 20 years ago and decided to actively help and not just talk about the misery. Out of his own pocket he paid for food, castration and medical treatment for the street dogs and cats. Soon there were over 150 animals that Thomas took care of every day. In 2018, he finally found a suitable place for himself and his charges. The shelter covers about 4000 square metres and offers safe care to about 100 dogs and 10 cats. While the dogs live in 4 to 5 large groups in large areas with plenty of space, the cats have made themselves comfortable in a few rooms in the house. Of course, Thomas has not forgotten the street dogs and cats; twice a day he goes out to feed about 60 street cats and 30 dogs. Thomas takes care of all the animals on his own, sometimes he gets help from volunteers. On the side, he educates people in his area about animal welfare and cooperates with the relevant authorities on animal welfare issues. However, Thomas does not receive any help from the state, in the meantime his own resources are almost exhausted and he urgently needs our help.
