‘Doris’ was founded on October 2011, by a team of animal loving people that live in Argostoli with the collaboration and help of the municipality of Kefalonia who provided the land for the shelter.
It was quickly embraced by all animal loving people in the island. Particularly valuable is the contribution of the British community of the island.
Doris’ aim is to rescue, provide care and shelter, rehabilitate and re-home Kefalonia’s stray animal population.
It tries to provide the strays with all the medical care they need and promotes a neutering program that will help birth control and public health.
Moreover, ‘Doris’ tries to achieve the social and physical rehabilitation of the animals promoting animal adoption by individuals/families.
In addition, it tries to raise public awareness and organize groups of volunteers and programs for the animal care and welfare.
