Little Nano

Little Nano was found on 16 of September. Litsa, our coordinator, heard a kitten crying while walking her dog. But because the kitten was located inside a garden, she left it and returned to next day to check on it. The kitten was still crying so she found the owner of the property and received permission to search the area. Little Nano was found under a plant crying nonstop, no mother around. She appeared to be only a couple weeks old. Back at the AZI center, little Nano received care and nourishment from a baby bottle at first and is she is starting to eat by herself. She is a happy and sweet kitten and she will be available for adoption in 1 month.

Welcoming Anna and Maria

 Anna

Anna

 Maria

Maria

We are pleased to welcome two retired donkeys to our shelter. Both come from Chora and are too old for work. Anna arrived Aug 5th and came from a poor farming family. She carried many loads up the mountains in her lifetime and deserves a happy life in retirement. Maria arrived on August 27th and is still adjusting to her new life at our stable. She worked hard has a young donkey but more recently was not working so she has a bit more energy for her age. We hope she will make friends with the others at the stable and enjoy her retirement.

Two Kittens Arrive from Koufonisi

Last week two 3-week old kittens arrived from the nearby island of Koufonisi. We gave them the names Mick and Esthel--both are girls. They were discovered by one of our most active volunteers, who was spending a few days in Koufonisi. The two kittens were crying nonstop but their mother was no where in sight. After waiting to see if their mother would return (there was no sign of her), the kittens were put on a boat to Amorgos where Litsa, our tireless coordinator, fed them milk by hand.

We suspect that something must have happened to the mother, and so the kittens were left all alone. We are looking for good homes for these two new additions and hope to find some when they are old enough to travel. To help care for these kittens and all the others like them, please consider making a donation to Animal Zone International. Thank you!
