When this poor starved dog was found, her ribs and bones stuck out harshly, with her skeleton vividly outlined. Indeed, she was possibly not far from death. Yet one man wasn’t ready to give up on her. Slowly gaining her trust, he was determined to change this animal’s life for the better.
The Greek financial crisis, some say, has created the sad reality of these dumped dogs. Ever more people are giving up their dogs to avoid the cost of caring for them. But one man is saving their lives and giving the poor pooches a second chance at being happy and healthy.
Namely, Theoklitos Poestakis is the man single-handedly saving hundreds of animals. The former dentist, known in his local community as “Takis,” set up a non-profit organization to help these stray and abandoned animals.
