Introducing GAWF

At Dog Welfare Network, we support and promote animal rescue organisations and charities across Europe, with the emphasis being on helping stray and street dogs.

There are a number of organisations that are joint ventures between the UK and various countries around Europe, which are working to reduce the number of stray dogs and to improve the lives of the many street dogs.

One such organisation is The Greek Animal Welfare Fund (GAWF), operating in Greece as Animal Action Greece. GAWF is a charity based in both London and Athens that strives to improve the welfare of all animals in Greece.

Founded in 1959, GAWF works with street animals, working animals, pet animals – any animals that need help. As well as practical and often life-saving veterinary work, GAWF campaign and lobby the Greek Parliament, support smaller animal welfare groups in Greece, run education programmes and offer training in animal care.

Their work includes:
Helping street cats and dogs.
Running a neutering programme.
Working with and supporting animal welfare groups throughout Greece.
Providing financial assistance in the form of grants to local animal welfare organisations and individuals.
Raising awareness of the importance of animal welfare, particularly to the younger generation.
