eKathimerini — The City of Athens has placed water dispensers at 35 key locations around the capital to ensure that its stray dogs and cats can stay hydrated against the heat wave that is expected to slam the country as of Wednesday.

The water dispensers are on Syntagma, Mitropoleos, Monastiraki, Kaningos, Klafthmonos, Viktoria, Koumoundourou and Aghiou Nikolaou squares, as well as outside the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Herod Atticus Theater on Dionysiou Areopagitou Street, beside City Hall and in various parks around the city.

They have been placed in key locations by the municipal authority, which has asked that residents or visitors help keep them filled with fresh, clean water.
