Yesterday marked a remarkable display of solidarity and compassion in Lefkara, Cyprus, as the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) and local residents collaborated to rescue two stranded dogs, each incident unfolding in its own tale of heroism.
In the quaint village of Lefkara, ERU responders sprang into action upon receiving reports of a distressed dog in need of assistance. With a sense of urgency and determination, the team navigated through the rugged terrain to reach the canine in distress.

Simultaneously, in a nearby area, another canine found itself in peril, prompting the swift response of both ERU and local volunteers. With unwavering dedication and expertise, the rescue teams orchestrated a synchronized effort to reach the stranded dog and bring it to safety.
Δύο διασώσεις ζώων (σκύλων) σήμερα από ΕΜΑΚ, στα Λεύκαρα και Πυροσβ Σταθμό Αμμοχώστου, από λαγούμι στην περιοχή Αγίας Θέκλας. Και στις δύο περιπτώσεις τα μέλη μας προσέγγισαν τα σκυλιά με ειδική διασωστική εξάρτυση, τα διέσωσαν και τα παρέδωσαν στους ιδιοκτήτες τους.
