Teamwork!!!! A great result for Animal Rescue Kefalonia

It just goes to show what can be achieved when animal lovers come together! A lovely lady called Sue Thompson contacted us to see if we could help an animal rescue in Kefalonia who is desperately struggling due to COVID.  ARK (Animal Rescue Kefalonia) are finding it impossible to raise enough money to feed their rescues, an awful heartbreaking situation.  A UK charity Holly Hedge had generously offered a full transit van bursting with food, medicine, toys and beds, the problem was how to get it to Kefalonia.  Sue asked if we could help and Nic got to contacting all the airlines.  Unfortunately, we had no luck and was seriously thinking it was going to be impossible.  The last company to try was TUI and they didn't hesitate, they said yes straight away and they are AMAZING! 

Pauline at Holly Hedge and her wonderful volunteers have flown into action to get everything packed up and transported from Bristol to Birmingham ready to fly on the 29th August, just two days away! 

A massive thank you to everyone involved to make this happen! 

The TUI  Team you are incredible THANK YOU, Lilla Merrick, Liz Edwards, Nial Mclean, Lara Busch

About the Charity

When Chrisa Ntinou was 15, she saw a man throwing newborn puppies into a bin. Shocked, she rescued them, found their mum and raised them herself. Once the puppies were old enough, she re-homed them, but she kept coming across animals in need and so Chrisa's Stray Rescue was born. Now 25, Chrisa has 150 dogs at her shelter in Trikala, Greece, as well as cats and kittens.

Chrisa works hard, along with her supportive partner, to re-home the dogs after they have been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. She does everything from feeding, to medical care, to home checks herself.

Earlier this year Trikala was hit by a flood, which almost destroyed Chrisa's shelter. She has used donations to buy temporary dog houses to keep the animals safe, but with winter approaching this is no longer enough. Your donations will help buy the materials she needs to reconstruct her shelter and ensure her rescue animals have somewhere warm and dry to sleep this winter, as well as food, bedding, toys and vet bills.
