Rehoming Cyprus Pointers
A non-profit rescue organisation that is run purely by volunteers so that every penny raised can go towards transforming the lives of these beautiful dogs.
Inspired by the online fundraising campaign, ‘Please Help Apollo’, Rehoming Cyprus Pointers was created in 2013 with the goal of helping other abandoned, neglected or abused Pointers. Apollo was found in a diabolical condition – deliberately blinded in both eyes and chained to a tree without food or water. His future looked grim, but thanks to the generous support of people like yourself, he made a remarkable recovery and is now finally able to enjoy a normal, loving environment in his new home in the UK.
An estimated 200,000 dogs are abandoned in Cyprus every year and with little to no help received from the government or local authorities, it is little wonder that the local animal shelters (who are reliant on volunteers and donations to survive) struggle with the sheer volume of dogs that come into their care. To make matters worse, many of these abandoned dogs won’t have been neutered, resulting in more unwanted stray puppies who grow into yet more unwanted dogs… and so, the vicious circle continues.
