Story

In support of S.O.S this year both my S.O.S dogs and I, along with some wonderful runners and dogs from the Peterborough Paws Canicross team, will be running over 40 miles from Peterborough Cathedral to Ely Cathedral in one day. I only began running again when we rescued Milo (our first SOS dog) in 2016, since then we have taught him and our other rescue, Rogue, how to canicross. A big challenge lies ahead for all three of us but S.O.S is worth it!

Our story with S.O.S started in 2016. My partner and I wanted a dog and my only 'rule' was it had to be a rescue dog.

We tried most of the well known rescue charities and companies in the U.K but because we both worked full time we were turned down every time. We both had stable, well paid jobs and worked shift patterns so the future pup would always have someone around. Despite our plea they still said no.

Then we were introduced to S.O.S via Facebook.

SOS is a local non-profitable dog rescue focusing on the well-being and adoptions of unwanted stray dogs in the village of Oroklini, Cyprus. The law permits euthanasia after 15 days in the pound, from which they have saved way over 900 dogs in the past four years

S.O.S is a 100% volunteer-based rescue. The volunteers dedicate their invaluable time to caring and rehoming the dogs found in its care. Their work consists of improving the life of the pound dogs, focusing on veterinary care and neutering, training and spending countless hours on adoptions. A lot of the dogs found here are failed hunting dogs abandoned on the street or a litter of puppies not wanted and left out in the unforgiving weather. If it weren't for charities like this one countless of dogs would have suffered beyond imagination.

This charity work endlessly to ensure a perfect match between dog and family, with countless cat visits and testing the dogs temperament around other dogs and children.

A lot of people are against adopting as 'you don't know the temperament of the dog' but honestly- how many people can predict the temperament of their new puppy? Rescue dogs are found to be very loyal and know that you have saved them! There can be challenges along the way but there are challenges with puppies too. The rewarding feeling to know that you have saved a dogs life is incredible.

We now have two beautiful healthy dogs both from S.O.S and try our hardest to help support their difficult financial situation.

So please if you can spare some money the dogs of Orkolini will be very grateful for your generosity, whether its £1 or £10 it all helps to save these dogs from an unspeakable future.
