Sick Puppies Found Abandoned In A Box (Again)

Sick, mangy, starving and left in a cardboard box for a sucker to find, foster, treat and rehome – this is getting ridiculously familiar. Pet abandonment here is like a tradition. Actually no, it’s not a tradition – in tradition you know you have other options, but you just choose to follow it.

Eri was rescued from the streets of Greece in 2016 by Save a Greek Stray.

Mangy Setter Gets Her First Therapeutic Bath At The Shelter

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: info@saveagreekstray.com
