Charity Donation for thirsty dogs!
The Story of the Skiathos Dog Shelter
Skiathos is a small, beautiful island (12kms. long and 6kms. wide) situated in the North Western Aegean. Like most countries in Southern Europe and the Balkans, Greece has a serious problem with stray dogs and cats. Skiathos, although tiny, has many abandoned dogs. They formed packs and people were afraid of them. Eventually some concerned residents got together and opened a shelter in Skiathos town – unfortunately it quickly became unmanageable.
Over the years contacts were made with international animal organisations and individuals who helped with veterinary care, building projects and food. Visitors discovered the shelter while exploring the island and began offering homes to the dogs and cats. They began a dog-walking programme and opened the shelter to the public which brought more people.
Support from Aspen
Aspen Vets likes to support worthy causes and help wherever possible. Aspen Vets has kindly donated 2 boxes of Rehydration Support, which is 30 sachets. Rehydration Support formula has been designed to replace lost fluids and electrolytes in dehydrated dogs and cats. Sodium and chloride contents are approximately equivalent and compensate for losses.
We hope this donation will be beneficial to the shelter and of course the dogs they work with. Keep up the good work Skiathos Dog Shelter.
