We recently had the pleasure to meet an incredible woman in Greece who is doing amazing work. She cares for a large pack of animals who never stood a chance at a good life if she hadn’t stepped in. Today, these dogs and cats are getting the life and love they so deserve.
In a few weeks we’ll share her story in the Tripawds News blog , but until then please take a few minutes to watch her sweet video. It will break your heart at first (no gory pictures, I promise), but then…WOW.

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
