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.
