Amazing, tough, dedicated and inspiring, these eight women just…deserve to be here. Today it’s Women’s Day, so this post is about these eight women that I know, admire and respect.  Some of them have gone viral through my videos, and some haven’t.

Paralyzed Dogs And Cats – how To Care For One

Paralyzed dogs (and cats) might end up in that state due to many reasons, but in Greece, 99% of them were left paralyzed due to a human.

Blind Rescue Kittens Find Their Dream Homes

Blind rescue kittens are like mangy starving dogs in Greece – you can never rescue too many, you can never rescue them all. Respiratory and eye infections are so common in stray cats, that every time we rescue a healthy seeing kitten we almost can’t believe it. Virgil, Blinkin and Destiny were rescued in late May 2016 by SCARS and were fostered together by a volunteer. All three with severe eye infections that had cost them their vision – but not much else.

Animal Lovers Run A Marathon To Raise Awareness

It was the first time I joined the Penny Marathon this year, but it definitely won’t be the last. I didn’t run, but next time I will. I didn’t have my Penny Marathon T-shirt on, but next time I will. I won’t be wasting your time trying to describe what the experience is like and what running for the animals feels like– the video covers all five hours of our journey, from the first meeting point to the finish line. I will just try to answer briefly any questions you might have. Continue reading Animal Lovers Run A Marathon To Raise Awareness
