SPDC Saving Pound Dogs – Cyprus
Saving Pound Dogs - Cyprus [SPDC] is a group of volunteers trying to save dogs that have ended up in various local dog pounds. By working in co-operation with the local pounds, we try to identify the owners of lost dogs through various channels.
If unsuccessful, we try to find new homes for our furry friends, either in Cyprus or abroad.
SPDC has a sanctuary near Nicosia and also use foster homes to take care of the abandoned, abused and neglected dogs in our care. All our work is undertaken by volunteers and we rely totally on donations.
As well as the Nicosia Sanctuary SPDC have responsibility for the dogs in a municipality pound in Limassol.
What we do is to: - engage in improving the life of a dog whilst in the pound - work with the local vets to make sure that the pound dogs are treated, if sick - strive to keep the dogs healthy at all times - search for foster homes or, even better, forever homes - organize fundraisers etc. in order to try to raise funds and support in the local community. - all dogs adopted through SPDC come with Rescue Back Up for life.
All actions done by the affiliated dog pounds are under the umbrella of SPDC.
