 The best part of rescuing dogs is of course when we get greetings from our former rescued dogs.
Vasili was found in a shelter very sick. Our Hospice brought him out and started working with him. He was a sweet heart…and he is an even bigger sweet heart now. A wonderful family in Northern Italy adopted him.
We couldn’t be more happy. And, we know he is the happiest boy!

That’s Amore!



They were locked up for 13 years. Thanks to AWL they got out and got a wonderful place at our Hospice. No cages only bedrooms and living-rooms, garden, warm dog beds, great food and love. Love from all our wonderful volunteers, that cares and makes a difference.

Sunny (white male) is dying. Even if we know that helping Senior dogs means a short time. Maybe short for us but long for them. Cher (brown female) was locked in the cage together with him for 13 long years. Can you imagine?

She knew long time before us that Sunny is “shutting” down, and she wont leave his side. She licks him, looks after him…calm and loving.

I said to my volunteer yesterday, that each dog (Senior) has (is) taught us a lot about different personalities. I love them, I adore them

That’s Amore!



                                                   SPONSOR THE BEAUTIFUL LAIKA.

Laika came to our Hospice in December brought by our veterinarian. Her family who is an older couple couldn’t take care of Laikas seizures and wanted her to be put to sleep. Our veterinarian hadn’t the heart to do so since overall she was a healthy and happy dog. Our veterinarian wanted to try to change the medicine. Laika came to our Hospice, polite and lovely and the other Seniors welcomed her right away. With her knew medicine she hasn’t had any seizure in soon to be one month. We are so happy, and Laika is the happiest one.
Please consider a monthly sponsorship of Laika for her medicine and food.
You can start your sponsorship today by contacting Ulla Linders at

We have PAYPAL here on blog, you can sign up for monthly donation. 

That’s Amore!




There are many people out there in the world that are helping us AWL to be able to work, rescuing animals. Without your help we cannot give them any help;  medicine or surgeries. Food to starving dogs, de worming and vaccinations to Puppies. Or, our Senior Dogs at the hospice.

When treated and healed we fine super wonderful homes for them. To you, you are the strongest link in our chain, Team Italy. That’s Amore!

After a great day in the shelter near Caserta, Martina, Olivia and I drove

home. As with every other day, we stopped by to feed The Mother of all the puppies by the church in Castle Volturno. 
We were very tired after a long day of working in the shelter, but decided we had to stop and feed them. And what a lucky decision! 

One of the puppies’ head was stuck in an empty foodcan, totally exhausted and dizzy. We got his head out and could make sure he wasn’t cut or wounded. 
We de-wormed them all; mother Bobby, puppies, and sister Chicca, and gave them plenty of food. The place was full of trash,and we tried to clean up a little. 

We found two puppies that had beenkilled, probably by other strays. But it made us concerned, we didn’t want any other puppies to be killed. We had to move them quickly! 
Also pushing us was that mother Bobby was old and tired, and needed to have a break. Another big factor, was that other area puppies had gotten out, were killed by the cars on the busy street next to them.

The next morning we picked the puppies up, seven cuties. 

We started to wonder if the puppies were from two litters.  We drove to the hospice and Lori Garcia was there and helped us to make one room into a “nursery room” for the seven bundles of joy.

Dr. Vittorio came over on an Italian holiday, and helped us with examination and vaccination of all the puppies, and even some of our other associates:Valerie’s rescue dog, and Chiarra’s boyfriend’s rescue dog. It sure was one hot, buzzy, busy day.

The next day we had a wonderful lady named Julia Johnson helping us to foster five of the puppies while two stayed for observation at the hospice: Tiny and Marlene. 

Tiny was the smallest and skinniest, he was very low and mellow, so he had to get extra puppy milk. Marlene was shy and we wanted him to grow and glow, and so they both did.

All puppies are now adopted and doing wonderfully.




Far away from Italy, we have a true Animal Rescue Friend. Craig Kleber who lives in Brentwood, LA–US Craig is helping Mr Edgar Poe to get the veterinarian and medicine treatment that he needs.
For us it is amazing and heartwarming to have such a wonderful rescue animal friend that cares about the animals wherever they are in the world. I know he is helping big time in LA, too.

Craig has followed our work for several years, and has always been there when we needed help -as we need all the time–

Edgar Poe –as you know if you from following our blog–is having heart-problems and some other “minor” health concerns as any old gentleman (dog) would get. But thanks to Craig’s recent generous donation of 2000 dollar, we now have a “Fred Astaire” tap-dancing, happy dog at the hospice.

 Thank you Dr Damiani for helping AWL’s Mascot Edgar Poe.

Volunteer Angy for being Edgar’s VIP driver.

Thank you all, so much!
