For months the news has been reporting the heartbreaking story of migrants arriving in Europe from the Middle East and Africa, fleeing atrocities for an opportunity for something, anything, better. For those who arrive safely across the Meditteranean – 2,000 or more drowned in transit this year – the welcome is not always warm. Countries across Europe are struggling to assimilate the newcomers in what The Guardian calls the “world’s biggest refugee crisis since the second world war.” None more than the country of Greece, already strained by staggering debt and loss.
Have you ever wondered where a homeless job searcher would keep their pet while looking for work? Showing up for an interview with a dog on a leash or a birdcage in hand probably doesn’t make a good first-impression. And for those who live in their car, leaving a pet inside is a major no no during warm weather. On an even more serious note, can you imagine leaving your beloved family dog with an abusive spouse so you could flee to safety?
