Takis Proestakis, a former Greek businessman in the town of Ierapetra, Crete, gave up his comfortable life to devote himself to caring for abandoned dogs and cats. And now he has even added some stray goats to his menagerie.
The former owner of a popular nightclub in the town has created and maintains a shelter for stray animals, thanks to donations that have come in from across the world.
Speaking to the Greek Reporter, Proestakis told us about the life-changing experience he had six years ago when he took a stroll near the a garbage dump outside the town.
“I saw a dog with broken legs and the bone was out of the leg… I was horrified. I was going back every day to help it recover. One dog became two, and then three, until dozens gathered near the dump. Many were in desperate need of help,” Proestakis says.
Black and White today! O Black και ο White σήμερα!
