It happens that love for animals and mercy leads to such vital decisions that completely change lives.
So it happened with this indifferent man.
When the wave of the financial crisis swept through the world, it did not bypass the fabulous island of Crete.
Many residents simply released their pets, in the hope that they would be able to find food for themselves.
And as a result, packs of stray dogs began to replenish throughout the island.
When Theoklitos Proestakis, by chance, ended up on the outskirts of the city and saw all this with his own eyes, he was affected by the sight of abandoned animals and decided to do something.
He and his friends began to feed the poor dogs, but because of the large number of them it was dangerous for them to stay in the city.
So they organized, built and fenced off a shelter for them in an olive grove with an area of 33 kilometers and called it “Takis Shelter”.
Here the animals are calm and safe.
For the sake of his impulse of the soul, which became his business, the man left a successful career as a dentist.
But so far only his friends help him in this noble cause.
