KAZ Shelter For Stray Animals
The KAZ (Shelter Stray Animals) is a non-profit association founded in 1988. The shelter's activities rely on the love and voluntary actions of its members, donations, and sponsorships. KAZ offers care and treatment to stray animals at its privately-owned facilities in Markopoulo, Attica. The shelter operates exclusively as a transit center for the animals and not as a place for their permanent residence.

All the cats, kittens, dogs and puppies are vaccinated and are given with health papers, while adult animals are also neutered. The society does not provide a place for fostering animals, nor is an animal shelter. Rescued animals are taken care of in houses and yards of volunteers until they get well and then they return to their initial neighborhoods unless they are adopted.
Adoptions are finalized with an “Adoption Deed” signed between a liable member of the society and the prospective guardian according to the Greek Law. The fees for each animal’s vaccination, deworming and michrochip tagging are €30 and are lifted only in the case where the animal has passed through the Municipality’s strays management program, otherwise is paid in full by the prospective guardian.

Greek Animal Rescue is a UK based registered charity, which aims to help the abused, neglected, stray and injured animals of Greece.
Stray Action and Pet Therapy Hellas is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2005. Their goals are to inform children, the future citizens of Greece, both in theory and in practice – about the right behavior towards dogs and sensitize them with regard to the crucial problem of stray dogs. They offer social/community welfare services to mentally or physically disabled people of all ages by bringing them in physical contact with cross-bred, former stray but now adopted and trained dogs of our volunteers. Their goal is to also help resolve, or at least alleviate, the “problem” of the ever increasing stray dogs by promoting and supporting with enough benefits the adoption of dogs without a home.
