Serafina Avramidou has a dream to become the very first owner of Greece’s first ever dog friendly coffee shop. She plans on naming it Doggylicious! but before her dream comes true she needs the help of the community.
Avramidou has worked as a marketing professional for many years but has always felt she could do other fulfilling things with her life. With the help of her therapy dog Claire, they both volunteer for SAPTHellas, an organization that teaches children about the correct behavior towards dogs (stray or owned) and informs them of the crucial problem Greece has with stray dogs. SAPTHellas also offers community welfare services to people with disabilities.
Avramidou has started a campaign to raise funds for the coffee shop. Her plan is to create an environment where dogs will be welcomed at all times and where animal lovers can meet to exchange ideas and gain knowledge from resources (books, magazines, etc) Avramidou will make available to her customers.
Doggylicious! will host monthly events with veterinarians, dog trainers and dog professionals to educate the public on various pet related subjects. Avramidou plans to welcome local rescue groups at the shop and allow them to use the space to inform local residents about the work these organizations do. Adoption fairs will also be hosted at the coffee shop helping rescued animals find their forever homes.
