These photos were taken at Skiathos Dog Shelter in July 2008, I only had a very short time to take a number of photos to use as postcards for the shelter, I found trying to take photos of dogs that are really pleased to see you and always on the move very difficult, everytime I managed to get one of the dogs into focus it would move before I could take the photo, it wasn't long before I had  noses pressed against the lens or somewhere that the sun wasn't shining !


The shelter has been operational since 1995, it has been a real struggle to keep it going but, thanks to the visitors who are on the island 5 months of the year and their generous donations, it carries on the good work.  Since 2002 they have homed over 480 dogs !
