MESSI is an 11 year old sweet gentleman who was surrendered along with his son TSIMBA to the Nicosia Dog Shelter by his owner- due to financial reasons, the owner could not keep either of the dogs any longer. 


They were both living in a field in the cold and heat with almost no human contact. The shelter is looking for a loving and quiet home for him, he does not deserve to live the rest of his life in the shelter without knowing the warmth of a proper home. If he is not able to be adopted, your donation will help pay towards his medical bills.


If you'd like to contribute more than €10 for my support, please increase the item quantity at checkout once you've clicked "Vistually adopt (PAYPAL)". Thank you!


If you would like to physically adopt Messi and give him a real home, pls contact the Nicosia Dog Shelter directly. 


    You will get:

    - a digital badge of me you can share on your social media

    -  a digital certificate of my virtual adoption by you, valid for a month

    - perhaps a chance to visit me at the Dog shelter and take me for a walk!


    Please note PAYPAL payments are processed by Navajo Media Ltd (our competition mentor company).


    If you dont have a PAYPAL account and still want to adopt a dog, please email us at and we can discuss an alternative method of payment.
