The Story

With your help, we now moved to our new place.  Thank you so much.  But of course, it is not a reason to "rest on our laurels" as we have about 130 dogs under our care.  That is why we have decided not to close this fundraising page and we hope that you will keep supporting us.  Please keep in touch for regular updates and to see how you can help us with our new projects.

WE ARE EVICTED !
 If we do not finalise our new shelter by Christmas, the authorities will take our dogs from us and they may end on the streets !
For some 18 years, nearly on a daily basis, we have been trying to repair the consequences of some people's negligence, ignorance and/or cruelty.  For some 18 years, we have been dealing with stray animals (Gocek and surrounding villages).  During all these years, we rescued over 2.000 dogs – they were all neutered and vaccinated.  Over these years, we re-homed more than 2.000 dogs, to very well-chosen forever families only.  We always have between 120 and 150 dogs in our care – too timid to be re-homed, very old, handicapped or just waiting to be adopted.  We did it all by ourselves, with your help only, as the authorities never helped us!

But we are being evicted!   And the authorities still do not help!

If we do not find a solution, our dogs may be on the streets by Christmas!  Can you imagine 100 + dogs surviving on the streets of Gocek?  Gocek, a touristic place!  Gocek, where some locals do not hesitate to poison or shoot stray animals!  Gocek where a high speed dual carriage kills many dogs and cats every year!       WE CANNOT! 

We found a new land and started to build a new refuge but we may not find enough funds to finish the project in time for Xmas.

Will you please help us ?  Will you please help our doggies ?  Will you please adopt a shelter for Xmas ?

You have all been wonderful and because of you, we manage to move all our dogs to the new shelter in last February.  Re-homing was very slow this year and we have nearly 170 dogs who need a bed for the winter.  We created a new fund raising page and we hope that you will help us again this year.  Please be generous...  The new fund raising page address is https://www.youcaring.com/gocekfriendsofanimalsassociationbedsforthedogs-680268

We cannot download photos anymore on this system (quota is over) so to see regular updates on the shelter and some photos please follow us on Facebook - our name is Gocek Friends of Environment and Animals Association.
We are slowly finishing the shelter - the quarantine area is nearly finished and we have to build a depo but priority must be given to some sun awning - it is already very hot and some units are not protected and some doggies are suffering from the heat.  We need more than 300 Euros for the material only...  Will you help ?  Contact us on helpgocekstrays@gmail.com or via FB if you want more details.  Thanks
