My dogs who are in the shelter, they have a good life...but a home is a home. Every dog needs a home.
— Takis

Some rescues have been ill-treated and their lives are just beginning. They all need the security of loving homes where they can rebuild their lives and find happiness.

All adoptions are completed in person at Takis Shelter.

We do NOT ship dogs. Please do not ask. It is against Greek law to ship unaccompanied dogs to another country.

It is very important that you meet your prospective new family member in person, and that you choose each other. This is the first step in ensuring that you will have a long and happy life together!

There are NO adoption fees. We ask only that you pay for the pet passport and an IATA-compliant animal carrier.

If you would like to adopt a dog or cat, please contact Takis directly by sending him a message through the shelter’s Facebook page:

We have over 350 beautiful dogs and cats waiting for their forever home. Could it be yours?
