What if we all demonstrated a little more empathy towards the animals with whom we
share our planet? The woman responsible shared her thoughts with us, after a food donation we offered Vrouva shelter in Aegina, where several old, abandoned and abused farmed animals are
“Our barn is now full of excellent mulch, hay and straw, enough to feed our animals all year
round. We are now stress free and were able to obtain hay of excellent quality. This is
especially important, for our older residents who are unable to chew hay that is not tender!
Since we have secured our animal’s food for the year, we are able to use our funds to cover
vet bills, preventative examinations, reparation materials and much more. We are now very
optimistic about our shelter’s future.
Most importantly, when a carriage – horse owner approached us and offered to turn his
elderly horse in to us, instead of sending him to slaughter, we were finally able to accept.
It gave us great joy to have enough funds to take in an animal in need, after two years of
being unable to do so;”
