An afternoon at the Takis Shelter, Ierapetra Crete. Follow us on Facebook.


Takis Shelter is a nonprofit organization and relies solely on your donations. We receive no help from the authorities.

Every donation, in any amount, is greatly appreciated by all the animals!

Below are just some examples of how your gift helps:

  • dog and cat food

  • heartworm, flea, and tick prevention

  • microchips

  • puppy shots

  • annual vaccinations for adult animals

  • spay/neuter fee

  • bedding and dog houses

  • animal carriers

If you wish to make in-kind donations, we are always in need of the following items:

  • dog food, dry or canned

  • cat food, dry or canned

  • blankets

  • towels

  • dog bedding

  • dog pee pads for sick and injured animals

  • IATA-compliant animal carriers
