Welcome to Hectors House Crete. Hectors House Crete a not for profit organisation. Our aim is to help stray dogs and cats from our area by providing them with a safe environment until they can be re-homed. Some of the cats will have a forever home here as they are feral and cannot be re-homed.
We started constructing Hectors House Crete in July 2010 and finally finished in April 2011. Hectors House Crete is situated on the edge of a pine forest just above the village of Vathi, near Agios Nikolaos, Crete.
Here we have special pens to house dogs individually, isolation pens , an exercise area and a large cat cage. Dotted around Hectors' House Crete there are small wooden houses which provide shelter for the cats during the winter months.
The purpose of this website is to make people aware of the plight of animals on Crete. To show you what we do and how we help these poor creatures. It's also a means to help raise much needed funds in various ways. Only so much money can be raised locally so we need to find other ways of raising the much needed cash required to feed, medicate and re-home the strays that come to Hectors House Crete.
Please take the time to look through the website and if you can help in anyway we and all at Hectors' House Crete would be very grateful.
Here at Hectors House Crete there are always dogs for adoption. Most of our dogs go to Holland through Mirtos Animal Project and other organisations but they can be prepared to travel anywhere as long as the costs are met by the adoptee.
Dogs for adoption are listed in the following categories:
Jack is one of 6 puppies abandoned at 1 day old by a bus stop. The family who found them have raised them from 1 day old onwards, all 6 survived. They managed to re-home some and have kept 2, but were unable to keep anymore as their neighbours threatened to kill them.....so they asked HHC if they could take two pups.
If you feel you could adopt Jack, please contact us.
Maybe you cannot adopt Jack, but would like to sponsor him until he is adopted.
Due to the financial situation in Greece there have been a record number of puppies and dogs abandoned this year.
At Hectors House Crete we try and re-home the dogs and some of the cats that we rescue, but sometimes due to health problems etc we cannot do this. As a result of this HHC will become their forever home. Obviously there is a cost involved in providing a forever home for these animals so for a small donation weekly, monthly or annually you can have your own 'virtual' pet.
Here he is Dennis (the Menace).......he surely lives up to his name.
