Found nears some trash cans they were covered fleas and incredibly dirty, starving too, they had fought hard to even still be alive.
They were found by Valia, a kind-hearted woman who had rescued dozens of stray cats and dogs. As she puts it, they had fought so hard to even be still alive, they deserved a chance at life.
Stray cats and dogs are an epidemic in Greece. So much so people have become desensitized to the issue. Usually, they are dumped by older everyday people. It could be your Grandparents or your kind next-door neighbor carrying on a tradition passed down from generation to generation.
This is what we are dealing with here. The people abandoning kittens and puppies in the trash are not monsters, says Valia..
Now there are more and more people just like Vali, trying to change this habit of a lifetime, educating people and try to change generational attitudes.
