I know that there isn’t really much to this video, it’s just another mangy, sick dog taking her therapeutic bath.
But there is something about Alice and the way she responds to the volunteers handling, bathing and caring for her, that makes the whole thing kind of poetic (at least for me). This particular day the shelter’s younger volunteer was there, and she helped us bathe and care for Alice and another dog in similar condition. She is only ten years old, and instead of spending her Sunday somewhere else, she spent it at the shelter, and she had such a great time that she didn’t want to leave.
Alice was found on the streets of Greece, emaciated, mangy and very sick. She was going to be put to sleep, so her rescuer asked Save a Greek Stray to take her in, and they did. She is too weak to endure the treatment for mange, so until she feels better, we are giving her baths that help her feel better.
You can follow Alice’s progress on the Save a Greek Stray Facebook page. Once she recovers, she will be looking for a forever home. You can donate to the shelter via PayPal: firstname.lastname@example.org

Rescue in Greece is like a Scottish shower. After a good day, when an adoption puts a smile on your face and warms your soul, a dog like Jack appears out of nowhere, and brings a cold shiver down your spine.
On January 12, 2015, we got a late call about a dog tied to a tree somewhere in the mountain of Immitos, in Athens, Greece. I was volunteering at ZEIL back then, so another volunteer and I took the car and followed the directions, looking for him. It was 3:00 am and freezing cold, and we driving in the middle of nowhere for about an hour when we spotted him. Continue reading Hunter Dumps His Senior Dog And Makes Him The Best Present Ever→
