I found a stray dog. What should I do?
Based on the population of stray animals in Greece, it is not uncommon to find an animal on the streets. But that does not mean you can do anything to help an animal you have found.
First of all, it is very likely that this is an animal that its owners have lost and they are probably looking for it.
1. If he is wearing an ID with a phone number, approach him carefully so that he is not afraid and call his owner immediately.
2. If it does not have an ID, try taking it to the nearest veterinarian to scan it for a microchip. This check is free.
3. You can print posters with the photo of the animal and post them in the neighborhood, along with your details. In addition, you can post his photo along with some information on social media and share it on animal rescue pages to find the owner faster.
4. In case the owner is not found, you can promote the pet for adoption and ask for the assistance of your Municipality and the local animal welfare association in order to share the ad more widely.
