'' steps '' tourist shop

Hi all, please dont go to this shop unless you want to witness animal cruelty! today a stray puppy was rescued after being beaten with a crow bar by the shop owner, the people who rescued her have called her mayer, she is being cared for by an animal rescue. This cruelty is disgusting, and tourists should be made aware of it!

Heard many tales of dogs & cats being beaten, last year I found three tiny kittens in Kalamaki that were abandoned in the middle of nowhere. Luckily, staff at my hotel knew who to contact to keep them safe & find them homes. I will avoid this shop like the plague when I return as I now have a dog from Kalamaki in the UK!

Hi fourfoot,

well done for saving the kittens, theres lots of this cruelty, puppies,kittens being dumped in fields,bins, and the strays that survive all of this get poisened! hit by cars or beaten to death by shop owners, restuarant owners! i think people should be made aware of this cruelty! alot of tourists are animal lovers.

regards jakki

Her name is Maya..we named her like that cause we found her today first of may!!on our way back with my sister we found her out of a tourist shop in lagana and the owner was hitting her with a crowbar!!!!we had a big fight with him and ofcourse we took her in our house...i wonder how can they do that to a such small dog.it's very bad for our island that it is supported from tourism to have incidents like this.

If you read your post again you are saying this shop owner rescued the kittens? When in fact he beat a dog with a crowbar!!!!!!!!!
