SIRIUS Dog Sanctuary, which caters to the needs of stray, abandoned and abused dogs, is in urgent need of sponsors to be able to meet towering expenses that annually exceed €100,000, it said.
The sanctuary, which is a registered charity in Cyprus (reg. nr. 318), is currently hosting around 150 dogs. It does not receive government funding and relies on sponsors to stay afloat. Costs include vet bills, utility bills, wages, feed, sundries and possible urgent situations.
Members of the public may sponsor a specific project such as raising the funds needed to purchase tick/flea collars for every dog in the shelter, or money for yearly vaccinations.
They can also sponsor a specific dog or kennel with as little as €5 per month or choose to sponsor a whole kennel of four to five dogs with a group of friends or co-workers.
Friendship Sponsors, is another way of supporting the sanctuary, by making a contribution which will be used where it is mostly required.
At the moment, the sanctuary is trying to raise funds to cover the flight and vaccination costs of three of their dogs, Bingo, Mavro, and Bobby, who are flying on July 1, to their adopted homes in the UK.
