Monthly news January

22 January – 28 January 2024

Few things make us happier than successful adoptions where the most deserving strays get their loving forever homes. This week it was travel time for Nala, Sally and Noah. See their happiness in the photos and videos below. We also managed to sterilise and neuter quite a few dogs this week. 

A lovely little stray setter in Zugdidi was also sterilised this week. She was abandoned by her owner who decided to go abroad and leave her behind. People can be so cruel.. 

Noah and Sally left Georgia for Germany and their new forever home (in Noah’s case) and a lovely foster home (in Sally’s case). Talk about life changing events for two abandoned strays of which Noah suffers from extreme separation anxiety. Sally will now stay with setter helper Meghan until she finds her own forever home.

There is no end to the neutering and sterilisation missions in Georgia! Six strays were neutered in Tbilisi with the help from Mayhew. Mariam were catching strays together with volunteers Nini and Maka.

It has been a difficult January for Mariam and the strays of Georgia. Several severely injured and ill strays have been found and are in dire need to care, foster and, a few months down the line, a loving home. We are in deeper need of donations than ever before to be able to pay for the treatments. Are you able to help? Please send a donation or contact us via zerotsraysgeorgia@gmail.com or via social media to find out more about our work and current situation. The vet bills are mounting up at record speed and our personal salaries are just not enough to pay for all the treatments..

Mariam shares: Rescue from Zugdidi! Very skinny and weak. I brought him to Tbilisi, stays with me now. Needed proper analyses and examination in the clinic which is not available in Zugdidi. He is diagnosed with Anaplasmosis and Babesia, analyses are not good. Treatments started already by Vetex vets.



This is Peanut who was hit by car in Zugdidi and now brought to Tbilisi as his walking condition didn’t get better. He is badly injured and the vets verdict is that they can only do surgery on one of his two leg injuries.

The new year has meant a full on operation of saving the most vulnerable strays from the streets – but also some amazing adoption highlights!




We rescued this Irish setter from Kutaisi highway. He is old and skinny. Under treatments now to gain weight. We hope someone will consider adopting him and give a deserved end of life in warmth and love.
