Dogs in Greece

In many parts of Greece, dogs and cats run free. The state, however, identifies, spays/neuters, provides necessary shots and collars (the dogs) and the animals are allowed to run free, fed by tourists, merchants and residents. Many areas have independent adoption programs.

  1. And too many cats as well! I was in Athens & Santorini recently, and was very surprised by the strength of their feline population 😉
