Pets / Animals

Postby annecollings » Mon Mar 20, 2006 10:47 am

I am interested in all things to do with animals and would like to see a separate section for anything regarding animals rather than having to trawl through other "stuff".

What do you think?

Cheers, Anne

Did you know there are currently 35 dogs in need of rehoming in BFAWS, Dhekalia at the mo?? That's just there. What about Paphos and Nicosia?? It's a shame. They told me they are looking for dog walkers if you're interested. Everyday between 9-11am. Just turn up and take a doggie for some much needed walking and attention :)

As for your query, I think if they catered for all interests there would be 101 sections. Can't please everyone I guess.

twinkle, I'd be interested in doing something like that on a weekend. Any chance of more info on this please?

I crave to have a dog, but I know it wouldn't be fair on it (I live on a 3rd floor appartment on my own, and am out of the building for 12 hours minimum every day during the week). This would be the next best thing I guess. Either here or PM me if possible please.

Dogs

Postby annecollings » Tue Mar 21, 2006 9:30 am

Hi twinkle

Thanks for your reply but unfortunately I am busy with my work (I am a dog groomer!). Would love to be able to help all the poor doggies on this island but unfortunately it is not possible for me just now. A couple of years ago I was involved with a dog shelter in Limassol (back then about 100 dogs) and it all but consumed me, destroyed me and l cannot go through that again. Believe me I still see their faces and when I was trying to help I couldn't sleep at night!

Cheers, Anne

BFAWS in Dhekalia is run by the British Bases. They have kennel facilities for boarding but they also take in strays and the like. :( They are desperate for dog walkers. Just turn up any day. Their tel number is 24 744457 The walks can be made between 9 and 11am. They have 35 dogs, full to capacity so the they can't walk them all and some dogs don't get a good walk for a few days. They range in size too from the small pups and cyprus poodles to the large german shepherds and labs. All looking for some love and attention and someone to spend some time with.

It wouldn't be fair to have a dog in a flat if you are out all day. In the UK I had 2 dogs in my house that I used to leave alone for 12 hours. I would get home to pee in the kitchen, chewed up shoes, remote controls and tapes and the worst time 2 lots of ripped up fitted carpet. Alternative arrangements were made to keep them in the garden. However, one used to bolt over the fence and the other...through it. The neighbours weren't to pleased :)

Thank you for your suggestion Anne.

To open a new section a substantial demand for a topic is required. In the near future I might open non front page sections for smaller categories. Maybe your request will be satisfied in that way.

Would you be able to post and provide relevant content for such a category?

Thanks

First off, many apologies to Anne for hijacking this thread. What twinkle metioned, I never knew existed in Cyprus, so it is something I would like to do.

Many thanks Twinkle for the info. I will give them a call at some point during the week to make more enquiries/get more info, and hopefully, I'll be able to turn up on most weekends.

Animal Welfare

Postby unique_earthling » Mon Apr 03, 2006 8:00 am

For anyone who loves dogs and other animals and lives in the paphos area, or is going to visit on holiday, there is a shelter called paphiakos Cyprus Cats Protection and animal welfare. This charity desperately needs help, in Cyprus there is no government funding for these charities and they all rely on your donations and help. Our shelter has dogs, cats horses, donkeys, goats, rabbits, infact at some time most you can think off even the occassional hedgehog and bird of prey. the rugged park like shelter is very large and would make a lovely day out for all the family. If your interested in visiting please ring 00 357 26 935 018 for more information and directions to shelter. All are welcome.

9 Months

Hi Anne,

Don't know if you remember me but I bought my GSD to you for a clip sometime earlier in the year - don't know if you are still monitoring this forum as it hasn't been posted to for nine months I see - which is about the same time it has taken me to produce the BFAWS Pride: 2007 Calendar I spoke to you about at the time Anne.

If anyone has their 'ears on' and is interested in BFAWS (and although we are not supposed to promote other sites here - it is for a good cause), you may like to visit the new BFAWS website.

Could anyone with any experience of Happy Valley kennels in Limassol, please give me some feedback negative or positive. Just found out about it and would love to know how people rate it.
