A woman from St Austell, who studies at Falmouth Marine School is thrilled to be recognised as a UK charity.
Maggie Hayes-Adams, 21, has become the chairwoman of Praxies Promise Animal Rescue that homes abandoned dogs from Crete in Greece to the UK.
The move comes after Maggie spent a self-funded week at Gouvès Animal Shelter in addition to her mandatory work experience whilst studying Marine Science at Falmouth Marine School.
“I find abandoned dogs new loving homes in the UK once I have completed the mandatory checks,” she explained.
“I then fly out to Greece and transport them back to their new owners.”
Maggie has completed three trips since she finished her initial work experience and has raised over £700 for the charity. She is now asking for public’s support to raise finances, find loving homes and get involved with the charity.
“Many of these dogs have been abandoned and abused in their lives and the shelter spends thousands on medical care, food and shelter,” she said.
“I want to encourage people to get involved with the charity, either by helping with checks, donations or adoptions.”
Praxies Promise Animal Rescue charity will be twinned with the Greek registered charity.
