Limassol company donates €1,000 to local dog shelter, urges others to follow suit

Limassol-based company FX BACK OFFICE donated on Tuesday €1,000 to Sirius Dog Sanctuary, a move it hopes will inspire other local companies to follow suit to help the animal welfare society weather the Covid-19 crisis.

In an emotional plea to the business world to help, the company’s announcement spoke of the hardships faced by animal shelter volunteers in their effort to keep animals safe and healthy amid the current adverse climate.

“There are people who dedicate their lives – selflessly, and more often than not for free – who wake up at the crack of dawn to feed, walk, and maintain premises for the welfare of animals – animals which our society has left behind.

“There are volunteers who often donate chunks of their salaries and spend their evenings and weekends helping shelters to run- volunteers who – amidst this crisis, are unable to support the shelters as they are abiding by the provisions set out to stop the spread of Covid-19.

“We call on all partners, competitors, and companies we serve to contribute to this cause and donate what you can – where you can, so our animal welfare society and the volunteers throughout Cyprus can sleep a little easier tonight,” the company concluded.
