The Good News: Coffee Shop in Greece Opens for Dogs at Night [PHOTO]
Once customers leave, they open their doors to local stray dogs so they can use the sofas and "sleep without being cold."
A photo on social media has been making the rounds, and it's authenticity has been confirmed. Yes, there is a coffee shop in Greece that opens its doors at night for stray dogs.
It's called Hot Spot. It's in Mytilene, Lesbos. Management has decided to allow stray dogs to sleep there at night, so they don't have to sleep out in the cold. Greece has an unusually large amount of stray dogs, but they are cared for by the community. Collared, fed, etc.
"Here in Greece our homes are not large enough for all of us to house animals," an Athens resident told LifeWithDogs.tv. "That's why we look after the street dogs. We feed them, pet them, and play with them. They are like our own pets, but they belong to everyone instead."
