Every year it receives thousands of wild wounded animals such as eagles, owls, vultures, swans, foxes, hedgehogs, deer, weasels, even coati and monkeys. For more than 20 years it is run by volunteers, who every single day are struggling to cope with the caring and rehabilitation of these animals that are constantly harmed by humans. Throughout all these years the hospital received no help whatsoever from the government, not even the local authorities, despite cries for financial help to provide for medical equipment, and other basic needs.

Instead of help, the government sent the Veterinary Department of the Ministry of Agriculture to inspect the facilities and order its closure due to its poor conditions. Because of this order, instead of receiving help, the shelter is no longer allowed to accept wild animals and the facility completely closed by January 29th. With this action, wild animals from that region in Greece will be completely left to die without any help from ANYONE.

The Greek government is infamous for its neglect, and indeed, contempt for animals. Greece has a long history of animal abuse, such as constant poisoning of stray animals, and abandonment of pets. Now, probably fed up with the constant cry for help, the government decides to solve the problem once and for all, by shutting down one of Northern Greece's 'gems', a valuable shelter for the beautiful Greek wildlife.

We therefore ask from the government not only to find a proper location for the shelter but also, finally, provide us with the financial assistance and the medical equipment, the lack of which was the reason for the shelter to shut down.
