Protecting The Strays of Cyprus
IT’S A DOG’S LIFE!
.…is something that you say which means that life is hard and unpleasant. That certainly applies to some in Cyprus. Most of us have been involved with, or know about, the situation regarding stray and abandoned dogs. We hear almost daily of dogs needing rescuing, fostering and saving, but it is, contrary to public opinion, not all doom and gloom. There are many Cypriots and ex-pats from around the world who are doing tremendous work to help the situation.
Lao Tzu said, many centuries ago, ‘The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.’ There are several such steps being taken. One is being taken by Stray Haven Dog Rescue in Giolou. Nieske De Jonge, a caring and hardworking Dutch woman, started with just a few stray dogs but this has exploded in the last few years to around 140.
Nieske De Jonge has sent 100’s of dogs to their ‘forever homes’ around Europe in just 5 years. Thanks to her efforts, and a small and dedicated team of volunteers, all dogs have been vaccinated, with priority given to the puppies. We are proud to say all dogs at Strayhaven have been spayed or neutered.

Having travelled to see Stray Haven and donated food etc to their cause these people do excellent work and make sure that these dogs are cared for to their absolute best . All dogs are well cared for and are healthy and these people work night and day to make sure that these animals are well looked after these animals are not chained up with cramped conditions or living in squalid conditions they are in good health not chained up or In filth.
I can’t thank Nieske enough for taking in Oreo, who I found at my front gate in a horrendous state. She needed the vet badly, and deserves to go to a loving home, something that She’s obviously lacked in the past. I don’t know of anywhere else on this island that would have given her the chance of life….
Also, a huge thank you for finding the white husky a forever home, pulling sleds! What a heart warming success story! Well done you! X
In a quiet area of Gioulou Stray Haven is run by Nieske dejonge and a dedicated group of volunteers who rely solely on the generosity of others to help as many of the abandoned dogs on Cyprus as they can accommodate. They want to find forever homes for those they care for and can send them to other countries. They receive no help from the government so please donate generously
