JUSTICE FOR IONAS

      Sophia Paraschou

      alexandroupolis, Greece

Ionas, a puppy only months old, was severely abused on the island of Samothraki, Greece on 18th February 2013. After he was beaten with a cleaver on the head, he was tied up with a rope and a sack full of stones was attached on him. He was then thrown to sea to drown. He struggled to remain on the surface, and luckily for him he was spotted by a fisherman and rescued. After spending some days on the island he was transferred by another fisherman to our town and was received by the local animal welfare union, Kivotos Alexandroupolis.Ionas was immediately taken to the vet where he received and is still receiving veterinary care. Unfortunately he lost one eye and the other is not certain to be saved. The Animal welfare Union Kivotos Alexandroupolis offers an award of 1000 Euros to any who could give specific information on the perpetrator's identity and whereabouts. Please, I implore you, sign the petition and ask the Mayor of Samothraki to do anything in his power for the dog's abuser to be found and be brought to justice. Send emails of protest as well in this email: dim@samothraki.gr

      I saw Ionas today. He started walking about and around trying to identify the place, where the furniture is, where there is open space.... He responds well considering what he has been through. Please send positive energy towards him guys, pray for our little friend to get used to his new life as quickly as possible, thank you

      Ionas is responding well to the medication and his wounds are healing. He is naturally still terrified, psycologically he needs more time to recover. Lucky in his misfortune, his story touched many and we were contacted by people who wish to adopt him when he fully recovers.
