Monty has a problem…

After a while Jackie, who fosters Monty, noticed that he walked strange with his back leg. The vet checked him, but couldn't find anything. So we assumed that he had been playing a little rough and waited to see if it would pass.

But it didn't and since Monty was supposed to fly to Germany on the 27th of May we decided that we couldn't send him to his new family like this and had him X-rayed in Kavala first, to be sure nothing serious was wrong.

And we are glad we did! Monty has an old fracture at his back leg that needs to be operated. The appointment is made with Stathis in Kavala for next Wednesday and after the operation he will stay in the clinic for a few days.

The costs will be € 500, apart from travelling up and down with the ferry to Kavala. Another financial downfall for ACT, but it has to be done otherwise Monty will have big problems later when he grows.

So once again we appeal to you for help. If you can spare some money please donate on our bank account (http://act-thassos.blogspot.gr/p/about-us.html) or through PayPal (act.thassos@gmail.com).

Monty says: Thanks!

Animal Care Thassos and Ebay

As you all know, we are very dependent on your donations. Without your help, ACT Animal Care Thassos would not be possible. But we also do everything to raise money for the animals on Thassos.
Meanwhile, we have a wonderful team at Thassos, which produces products. We sell these beautiful things on the flea markets, on our summer bazaars and Christmas parties.

Now we recently set up an Ebay account so that we can sell our handmade products abroad. We started with cushion covers that Jackie manufactures to offer them on Ebay.
Look at these beautiful cushions printed with animal motifs, you will be delighted. We are very proud and happy to have such creative people as Jackie with us.

We invite you to visit our Ebay site and we would appreciate if you could share this site with other people.
