Project Greek Authorities

A good interrelation with the Greek authorities, including the police, is of the utmost importance fort he success of our mission. Since the very start of our Foundation those contacts have been and are taken care of and carefully maintained.

Mr. Panagiotis Samaras, Head of Police Lesbos,

A major support for us hereby is Dr. Iosif Botetzagias (Associate Professor of Environmental Politics & Policy), working at the University of Mytilini, the capital of Lesbos. Because of his Greek citizenship ánd because he is an important partner in existing animal welfare organizations (a.o. chairman of Kivotos), he is able to open many doors for us.

Even before the foundation of Canilos, Christel de Haas established contacts with the Greek authorities. At that time she handed over a petition to the State Secretary of Agriculture, requesting to improve and strengthen the law.

The European law supports the battle against the phenomenon “barrel dog”, which makes it possible in obstinate cases to judicially prosecute previously fined owners. By now and then setting an example in using this severe method, owners will be more inclined to choose for biding by the rules.

We are very grateful for every type of support!
