Doris - ARK Animal Rescue Kefalonia in first place
« on: Friday, 23 September, 2016 @ 07:23:19 »

One of our kind supporters has entered a photo competition with a beautiful photograph of Savanna, which is 1 of  approximately 350 dogs we have at ARK, and it closes on 30th September. They have put ARK forward for the prize of 5,000€ and at the moment it is in first place but have another seven days to go.
This winter is going to be one of  the hardest yet trying to raise enough money to feed all the wonderful animals (apx  350 dogs & 40 cats) at Doris - ARK Animal Rescue Kefalonia. Please help us and vote - they will send an email to you for confirmation, which for your vote to count you’ll need to confirm with an email.
Thank you and we'd love to meet you at ARK one day.

Well, may last less than a month.
If we win, it will also pay off the wonderful wholesalers who bring food even when they know they won't get paid for a while and medical costs.
Thank you to everyone for voting.

Some great photos submitted, one for ARK still in the 'lead' and voting closes tomorrow (hint, if you haven't voted yet). ARK can also be supported via the Big Walk Kefalonia, or via the ARK website

Thank you everyone for voting for Savanna's photo, now we're just waiting for the results. Looks like we've done it but need to wait for the official confirmation
ARK is having a busy time at the moment, not only with the animals but also with things going on to raise funds and the Big Walk Kefalonia is the next one.
The Vice President of Doris-ARK Animal Rescue Kefalonia, Joyce Broekman, who also happens to work tirelessly seven days a week at ARK (8am - around 10pm), is some how finding some energy to take part in the Big Walk!! Her page for fundraising is https://www.ammado.com/community/179263
Many thanks again from Doris-ARK Animal Rescue Kefalonia and our family of animals at the ARK shelter.

There were so many really good photos entered, great to hear the Marian Eeltink / ARK photo won!  :bun1:

Thanks to Panasonic for the opportunity, there's already 3 entries for ARK in the latest Panasonic Eneloop competition:

(for anyone into photography: Eneloops are seriously good rechargeable batteries).

Wish it could last the winter, but it'll go some way. We have a lot of medical expenses at the moment with kittens and a few badly injured dogs, so it's  never ending trying to raise funds.
It is wonderful and unexpected and has given us a real lift - we are so lucky to have so many wonderfully kind and generous supporters.
