This cafe is letting stray dogs shelter from the cold at night

A kind gesture.

A CAFE IS Greece is going viral for letting stray dogs shelter from the cold this winter.

The Hott Spott Cafe on Greek island Lesvos closes at 3am each morning, and opens its doors to dogs to keep warm.

This photo of the dogs resting has been shared hundreds of times since it was shared earlier in the month.

A waiter at the cafe told the Independent that there are ‘many dogs’ stray in the city.

When the bar closes each night, the dogs come and sleep here. We don’t have a problem. From July, every night there is a dog on the couch.

He also says that customers have no problem, and it’s become a bit of ‘a thing’ now.

Since the photo went viral, the owners have been getting a steady flow of thanks online.

Because of great owner who loves animals, when i come there i will visit you for sure!


Well done Hott Spott <3
