Flora

Flora is a female mule in her late thirties that came to the shelter a couple of years ago in a terrible state… As she could not serve her owner anymore up and down the treadmill of the old port of Fira, Flora was left neglected, malnourished and unwanted. When she arrived at the shelter it was clear that this animal had not had a decent day’s food for a long time. We could literally count her bones. Her one eye was already destroyed from cataract and infection but her character remained calm and loving… “stoic” is the most representative word to describe these animals, serving tiredly their owners till they draw their last breath…
