In Greece, there's a cafe that serves coffee by day and offers a warm shelter for stray dogs by night.

The pup-friendly place is called Hott Spott, located on the island of Lesbos, and it's helping to make the lives of the more than one million homeless dogs in the country (according to Greek charities) just a little better.

It all started this past July when, according to a waiter who works at the cafe, the business started inviting their nighttime dwellers inside around 3 a.m. — long after their final customers have left.

And no, it hasn't affected their business. In fact, the cafe has become even more popular thanks to their pup project.

Such random acts of generosity toward animals isn't uncommon in Greece, which has a large number of stray dogs. Despite being without a permanent home or family, these animals are often collared and cared for by the community — an alternative to putting them into crowded shelters.

    God bless every person caring for the homeless, the wounded, the lonely, the abused, the poor, the ones in need, no matter if human or animal. While living in Greece for 1 year I have experienced that many people care and do whatever they can to make the life of street animal easier. They provide food and even take them to doctors sometimes.
