DOGO was initially set up by a group of students from the Junior & Senior School in 2020 as part of the Cyprus Junior Achievement Entrepreneurial competition. Their idea was to develop the first online dog adoption platform in Cyprus. Due to the success of DOGO during the competition the student team agreed to hand over the website to the NDS and it's volunteers in order to continue this good work.
"Our aim is a world where dogs who cannot be adopted from a shelter continue to receive the care and love they need. To achieve this, the dog shelters who work so hard to do this, need support. We hope that our platform can help to support the Nicosia Dog Shelter to continue doing the amazing work they do, through your donations. In return, you can know that your contribution is helping both the dogs and the dog shelter receive your support. Plus, you get to feel like you are making an ongoing difference to the life of a dog."

As we carry on this amazing project, we - as NDS - aim to raise funds in order to cover the high medical bills of the dogs that are most in need, suffering from chronic or serious diseases.
