Sue Discovers a Fantastic Charity in Zante
Our receptionist Sue Little visited the Greek island of Zante this year for her holidays. Although it is her favourite island she is well aware of the stray dog and cat problem. On her last day whilst waiting for a taxi to the airport, a large black L came into the hotel grounds. It had severe injuries to its neck and one of its ears was badly injured, it was in obvious pain and was trying to get into the shade.
Because Sue was leaving, it gave her no time to try and seek veterinary help for the dog. When she returned to England she googled ‘Zante pet rescue’ in the hope that there was such a charity. She found ‘Healing Paws’ and emailed them about the Labrador. Within 24hrs they replied and after visiting Alkes beach where the dog was last seen, they took him to the vets where his injuries were treated. He is now in a foster home and the charity are hoping to re-home him.
The lady who runs the charity Sue Smith is self funded and relies on donations, the charity is now registered and with Jacqui permission, our Sue is hoping to raise funds for this worthy charity.
Sue and her partner are going back to Zante in September and will be meeting up with Sue Smith and hopefully the Labrador as well!
If you would like to donate, please follow the link to the Healing Paws website where you find details of the charities PayPal account or you can drop into any of our branches where you will find donation boxes at the reception desks.
