Two years ago the mayor withdrew all funds and support from the shelter, which is illegal because they get funds from the government. The girls there are doing what they can, with their own expenses, but there are too many dogs in the shelter (140), too many strays outside of it and some other difficult cases, like Nancy. After the girls took over 2 years ago they spent thousands of Euros to improve it (their own money), they constructed houses, roofs and many other things. The residents of the shelter are dogs that were left there as puppies (now they are older, but the girls couldn't send them away), or very sick dogs that they nursed and have been healed (some of them amputated), but they are reasonably well! They are in such a bad financial state, that The Rescuers are literally going to Restaurants & Begging for Leftover Food for the Dogs In addition, keep in mind that Trikala is a small town and a small society, so they need our help!
This is where the previous mayor of Trikala dumped all the dogs after he closed the shelter before, the girls went and fetched all the dogs from there and started up a new shelter with no support from the local authorities or people from Trikala. (Click on image to enlarge)
