Good news from the Filozoikos Shelter in Athens — the first stage of Danae’s eye surgery went very well and she’s proving to be an excellent house guest at her foster home. And Cherry, the puppy who had surgery for a broken leg, is also making great strides.

Volunteer Alexandros ran the classic marathon in Athens to raise money for Danae’s operation. Martha from the shelter tells us:

“Alexandros’ effort was inspiring, Danae’s problem was touching, so by the time Alexandros was finishing the marathon, the amount needed for Danae’s surgery was gathered. Just after the marathon we informed those who made a donation for Danae’s surgery that the amount was gathered and that their donations will be used to pay the cost of Cherry’s surgery. Cherry is already recovering and she thanks you all.

Danae is recovering and relaxing in Ntora’s home who is temporarily fostering her. She is waiting (not very eagerly as we can imagine!!!) for the second part of her surgery next week. She would like to thank you all for your donations that made it possible for her to have the surgery immediately!”

Ntora reports that Danae “has good house manners, is affectionate, gets along with other dogs and cats, is calm in the car and on the leash. What more could anyone want?”

Once Danae is fully recovered from her surgery, she’ll be looking for her forever home. If you can help, please contact kyka@otenet.gr
