first_imgA local resident has set off with boots and backpack on a 210 kilometre coast-to-coast trek to raise funds for animal welfare.Graham Shackleton is currently making his way along the south coast to raise money for improvements at the Limassol Municipal pound.He left Cape Greco at 6.30 on Friday morning and hopes to be at Paphos Harbour by sunset on Saturday evening.Talking about his motivation for the challenge, the 43-year-old told the Cyprus Mail: “I’ve been helping rescue stray dogs in Cyprus for ten years, and we want to make the shelter in Limassol a little bit better.”Shackelton has been drumming up support online, where well-wishers have been spurring him on. His group, Rescue and Re-home Cyprus says there are currently 170,000 dogs living in shelters and on the streets.“We process adoption forms, conduct home checks and if all is passed we arrange vet preparation and flights to the relevant adoptive families all over Europe.”Although the trek has been planned over many months, Shackelton says he has not been in the gym. “I’ve not done enough training, but I like to keep fit, so we will see how it goes.“It’s more the distance than anything, with approximately 210 kilometers of walking, which will take us along some back roads and coastal roads.”Beyond fundraising, during the walk Shackelton will also be handing out leaflets about re-homing dogs.If you would like to help you can donate at PayPal – RnRCyprus@hotmail.comYou May LikeKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
