Danae was one of a litter of seven puppies left at the Filozoikos Shelter in Athens Central Park, Greece. Now she and her siblings are 12 months old and all need good homes.

Danae needs something else, too — an operation on her eye that will cost around €700.

She has a dermoid cyst in her eye that looks like an extra set of eyelashes. The cost of this tricky ophthalmic surgery is beyond the budget of the shelter where around 145 dogs and 45 cats are cared for by volunteers.

If you can help with a donation towards Danae’s operation, the shelter’s bank account details are:

Bank Name: National Bank of Greece
Bank Address: Stadiou 38, Athens, Greece

You can also donate by PayPal via friendsofanimals_nf@yahoo.com

Kiki, Martha, Aimilia and everyone else at the shelter thank you in advance if you can help.

Alexandros (L) is running the Athens marathon this weekend to help raise money for the shelter and in particular for Danae's operation. You can see what a pretty dog Danae is, top right, and bottom right, her poor eye.

This note was found with Danae and her siblings when they were left at the shelter as puppies. It reads: we are seven orphans and our mum can't feed us, so we came to you who love dogs, and we will be well behaved little children.
