We recently heard great news about two of our past passengers from Greece. Both were rescue dogs, cared for at the Filozoikos Shelter in Athens, and rehomed in the UK through their support group, Friends of Animals — Nea Filadelfia group.

Gentle giant Zeus travelled with us in late 2012 and was adopted by Madelaine in Lincolnshire. He settled in brilliantly and charmed all her friends and family, too. Zeus has shown himself to be very good with cats, prompting Madelaine to consider adopting a kitten.

If Zeus is half as good with cats as Erasmia is, it could all work out wonderfully well. This lovely girl travelled with us in late 2011, and is clearly leading just as a happy a life as Zeus with her UK family.
