Last Saturday, AWL volunteers delivered 68 pieces of Pet food to the shelter of Caserta .
Thank you AWL volunteers, Anthony Graybill and Sheila Coulter for helping deliver the food to the many hungry stomachs.
AWL is trying to help as many shelters as possible, but we have certain requirements:
#1 is that we are allowed to adopt dogs from the shelter to wonderful families (some shelters restrict adoptions!). There are some shelters that are scared about where the dog will end up, even if they know our fantastic work to find great families. We always post pictures and updates on Facebook and send private messages to the volunteers, but some shelter operators get so attached to “their” dogs, they block adoptions to wonderful forever homes.
#2 We also demand pictures of the donation be sent to us as a “receipt” and proof that the shelter got the donations. I can’t overstate the importance of this. The people and organizations that donate food want and deserve to see the results of their donation, and feel confident in their donation going where it is needed and promised.
#3 it is a simple, common courtesy to thank those that help — at least that’s what our mom taught us.
Right now we work with three (3) shelters that are glad to meet these simple requirements. We are always looking for more to help.
Albanien and another organisation from North Portugal have contacted us.
