Story

I've in creased the target as donations are still coming in!

Further funds raised will go towards building shelters in the different dog areas, to protect from rock falls and the harsh winter weather, basic infrastructure, like auto-refill drinking troughs, cargo nets for shade, fencing etc etc etc.. the list is endless!!

The Santorini Animal Welfare Association – SAWA is a non-governmental, non-profit making organization, founded in 1993 by active and devoted animal lovers.

Forced by the State to relinquish the land that the old shelter was on, which had plenty of trees, and therefore shade, the shelter has been forced to relocate to an old pumice mine, totally barren.

Dog houses have been sourced and cost about £200 each, this seems expensive, but they need to be super-sturdy to withstand the high winds and harsh winter weather experienced at the shelter's high altitiude and exposed location.

The houses will provide the dogs with much needed shelter in an otherwise challenging environment.

    90%!! of 2K!! So close to the goal! 'Children in Need' night.. if you've donated to this then you've done a great thing, but please match your donation to SAWA.. there's no 'Animals in Need'.. I wish! Pic is taken from The Greek Cat Welfare Society, nothing to do with SAWA, but I've just signed up for £10 a month.. £10.. a month.. it's nothing really is it?? But would make such a difference to the lives of some poor, completely neglected animals..

    Hi folks - someone pointed out to me that I should have some kind of receipt for the money raised for SAWA, I guess there are some unscrupulous people out there that set up fictitious fundraising pages, so here it is (love the stamp!), and a bit more to be transferred too, as I'm covering all fees myself to make sure SAWA benefits from ALL the money you've kindly given.. The animals at SAWA thank you from the bottom of their grateful hearts!

    Just back from Santorini, and visiting SAWA again. What an experience! 100 dogs having 'free time' outside the enclosures, all desperate for attention and cuddles! Christina is hugely grateful for the donations, which have helped towards getting the dog enclosures finished, and they now have plenty of robust dog houses, essential for the winter. Still loads to do though - accommodation for volunteers, canopies to protect against rock-falls etc etc - so please keep helping to raise awareness..

    Hope this helps in a small way. My lasting memory of Greece will always be of the stray, hungry cats and dogs. Thank you for helping them.
