Travelling with Dogs

The photos show departure from Paros, the ferry, arrival in Germany, train ride to final destination and arrival in Hamburg.

Fidelia was examined by a Vet in Germany in the  afternoon and will see a specialist on Wednesday. She needs to be operated on her front leg. More news on her as soon as we get them. Barbara travelled back to Paros with Lumbago almost gone, which is good news…..

Bravo to PAWS member G.M. and her husband!

PAWS member ‘Eibi’ and her husband saved 2 little kittens that would not have survived the winter and took them along to Germany today. They also agreed to transport 4 little puppies, who are already being expected by Vivalahund, one of our partner organisations in Germany. Tina&Turner, the paperbag-puppies and Logo&Kruemel are the lucky ones!

3 Dogs and 3 Cats left the island for Santorini and then Germany today. We wish them a safe trip and a very happy life with their new families.

Yet another night on the ferry

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007


For the umpteenth time, Barbara spent a night on the ferry taking dogs to Santorini, from where they flew to Germany with escorts. These trips last 24 hours and are everything but leisurely… 6 dogs were able to leave this time, e.g. the “Watermelon-Puppies”, the shy puppy from the garage and Mirca from Ambelas.

9 dogs and 2 Parasporos kittens left today for their new homes in Germany and Switzerland. Biggie is flying with some of them, others have found Flugpaten. In the meantime, Barbara and her mother will be taking care of the remainig dogs. It would be very nice if we could find some volunteers to help with the transports.
