Ian is a blind dog that was thrown into the streets of Thessaloniki, Greece. He's now been rescued and needs extensive medical. We have a perfect home for him. Please, help him get better and go HOME!

I am trying to make a donation & it keeps telling me this: Your donation total must be a dollar amount greater than 0 and less than 10000. You can make multiple donations if you care to contribute more to this fundraiser. Please avoid using decimals or commas. I entered my donation as 10.00 & push continue, but it does nothing for me to continue! Help anyone!

I see you managed, good on you! It is somewhat unfortunate that they found a home so far away, these extra costs of $300 for transfer to the Netherlands could have been spared if there'd been others willing to take him in.
I would suggest our friend Dimitris, being from Thessaloniki ;)

noted, but read the comment left on the donation site which left me perplexed. Will certainly stop many people from donating.....

There is a comment on the fundraiser that the ones who foster Ian and created the fundraser refuse to give information t also mplies that Ian may be dead. Well, I contacted the fundraiser organiser, here is her reply:

Sophia, I am an honest person who wants nothing more than for this poor dog to get home/get better. He was in Thess/niki on the street for 2 years blind and now all of a sudden he has been rescued and people are worried? The worry should have occurred when he was stray. I have put up the latest pictures on the "You care". I don't want to respond to Meni or her group...they have no right to see Ian in person. He has an owner and strays belong to no one. We have given K. Meni photos and videos, but accuses of photo-shopping. It is real! I take certain things serious in life and stray animals and animals/humans with special needs is one of them. Otherwise, I would not be in the career I do and help when I can here in my country and Greece. Thank you very much for your support and concern. People like K. Meni will keep on talking and accusing no matter what. I wish Greek rescuers/animal lovers stuck together, not apart. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns. She also sent me a viideo of Ian taken on 28/12/2013 which was uploaded on facebook.For those of you who are on facebook too here s the lnk:
