Welcome to the website of Friends of MELIOS – Animal Protection Society

Since 2010 the name “MELIOS” stands for the protection of neglected, sick, malnourished, injured and homeless animals. You are welcome to read more about my experiences at the MELIOS shelter here, e.g. who they are and what they do. Do not hesitate to contact me – Michael Hiemann – or the shelter directly for further information, support, tips or questions.

What is MELIOS?

In Greece, many people are not particularly close to their animals. They are abandoned, wander freely around the country and are usually in poor condition. 

The team at the MELIOS animal shelter is trying to change this, offering protection, medical care and trying to find new owners for these wonderful dogs.

What is needed most?

  • With donations they can pay for food, medication and vets.
  • Adoption from a distance for individual dogs.
  • Loving families for great dogs.
