Teen more than meets 2015 dog rescue target

EVE Moore is one person who did what she set out to do in 2015, and it was all for the good of stray dogs from Cyprus.

Last year, Moore, a 19-year-old student from Mirfield in West Yorkshire vowed to home 100 dogs from shelters in Cyprus by the end of 2015. Operating mainly from the UK, she set up an Instagram account and uploaded pictures of the dogs to attract potential owners.

As well, she used fundraising to cover some of the costs to get the strays ready for transport, since this involves the expensive process of deworming, vaccinating and microchipping the animals.

By October 4, when the Sunday Mail first reported on her progress, she had found new homes for 72 of the dogs. She said she had now more than reached her target for the year with 102 former strays in the hands of their new owners.

Does Moore have more plans for 2016? “I will not set another target, but I will do something else for the good of Cyprus dogs,” she said.
