Dear Animal Friends,
We have many who follow our various blogs and websites.  I know you all care deeply for the animals that we help.  I sense that many of you would love to adopt or foster one or more of these animals, but cannot.
Now, there is an opportunity where you can sponsor a specific dog.  Your sponsorship will ensure that “your” dog has what he or she needs going forward, the money you provide will ONLY go to the dog(s) you sponsor.  This is a simple and effective way to help a dog who has touched your heart.
You specify which dog(s) you want to sponsor.
You set the amount you can provide each month (per dog).
Upon the initiation of your sponsorship, you will get a certificate attesting to your kindness, animal friendliness and sponsorship of the dog(s) by name(s).
Each month, you will recieve a picture (digital) and an update about “your” dog(s).
You can even send care packages to your specific dog, with treats or things you believe your sponsoree needs or would like.  Of course, whatever you send will only go to the dog(s) you designate.

Write to volunteer ULLA LINDERS and tell her which dog and the amount you would like to sponsor. She will answer you back with all the information, right away

That’s Amore! 

14 years old, more or less, Franka was left in a horrible shelter many years ago, then went to another shelter with 300 dogs in a fenced-in area. They were up to 4-5 dogs in every cage, day in and day out. Ten years in two different cages.
AWL was delivering food to the shelter in May 2013, and the organization knew of one of our volunteer’s love for English Setters. She pointed at Franka, who was laying down not looking around, not being up barking like all the other dogs. She was sick, internal damage to her inner organs and leichmania. She was also blind on one eye, and her kidneys are weak after working so hard. She also suffers with high blood pressure.
She goes on special food (2KD Wet food). We brought her with us to the hospice.
Many dogs are invisible, she had been that way for a long time. One person changed her life, backed up by the whole team. A sponsor helped with getting her back to health.
Thank you Michelle Delgado-Gunter Texas USA


Thank you Ulrika Johansson, Sweden 


She is approximately 13-14 years old.

Thank you Pia WallinSweden

She is a Senior Girl that has been at the hospice since we opened three years ago. Before that, she was living together with several street dogs and a bag lady, roaming around on tight leashes. One day Stella got lose and ran away and our loyal volunteer Angy rescued her. Stella has tried to live with two different families but was always longing to be back at the Hospice. She loves her work: to greet volunteers, visitors and four legged clients. She is sterilized and will always stay at the Hospice, our “Lucky Charm” Mascot.

This is LOVE, who came to Hospice Casa dell”Amore in July. She was someone’s pet for about 10 human years. For 10 long years, she loved them unconditionally and was so very loyal. Then one day, her family drove me to a horrible place, with a lot of strangers, diseases and the constant noise of hundreds of other dogs. They left without saying anything, the last thing she saw were their backs. She was 3 years in a horrible shelter until we saw her posting. She had problems with her back legs but now with her dog bed she is doing fine. Unfortunately, Love got a bad itch, an allergic reaction towards food due to inner stress. She has bad dermatitis.
We guess she is 13-14 years old.



Mamma Rosie is a Senior dog 8-10 years old; she is so calm and wonderful and well behaved. We are looking for a forever home for her. She and her two daughters need leichmania tests, blood tests, de-worming and Frontline … and loads of chewy bones.
Thank you Camilla Lagerman, Sweden.


Sat together with Cher for 13 years in the same cage, without going outside. Hee knew only cold and wet concrete, and the constant noise of hundreds of other miserable dogs.

SWEET LOVELY LADY is new to our Hospice. She is wagging her tail like a propeller. She was born in a horrible shelter with 400 dogs in cages, cold concrete floors. Never got to go outside, no green grass.

For five years!!!

She got a heart problem and also ascites(the big belly) that makes it difficult for her to go. She got terrible wounds on her backleg after laying on cold/damp hard floor.
Thanks to your support she know is in our Hospice, warm lovely dog bed and plenty of people that love her. She is adorable.
Due to all her medicines she got really bad diarrhea.
Please become a sponsor for Lady, she need so many medicine (the list will be sent to us) she need special food due to her illness and she is wonderful she knows how to go on puppy pads. But we need plenty.
Lady and we need your help She deserves to feel special.

PS. Thank you  Mitra Talarman Rome Italy for your lovely donation/sponsor for Lady.
PS Malin and Juan in Sweden thank you for your sponsor this month.



Our Bella from earlier blogs is still not putting on weight. She is still a walking skeleton, and it worries us since she is getting fed three times a day by her foster mother.

We took her this morning to Dr Damiani to have her spayed, but she was still underweight — the doctor and we agreed that we have to figure out why and get her in better shape before doing the surgery.

Dr Damiani examined Bella and she laid totally still the whole time. She was fantastic. Her foster mother had to dry her mouth since Bella drooled so much from being stressed.

Dr Damiani is a great veterinarian. He gives us a lot of time and educates us at the same time. Every time we learn something new and our work feels very rewarded from him. Can you imagine that today he thanked us for doing so much for the Neapolitan strays?

My heart felt warm and we get inspiration to keep going. On top of everything he is keeping his costs low for our Foundation and NFOA. –I know since we have been working with other veterinarians here.–

With Bella he did a rectal examination and found out she is eating a lot of gravel!!! A blood test was being sent away– for many internal answers we hope for. We really want to know what is wrong with our girl Bella.

She is only 3 years old, blind in her left eye and has been abused by people before. She is so worthy a good and calm life, and a nutritional correct life.

Before leaving, Dr Damiani came out with a carton of dog food for us, as a gift. What an Amore veterinarian, AWL is so grateful for the person he is!

And Bella was so scared that she turned out to be so brave on the examine table, it was amazing to see her. Bella, we are doing everything so you can feel better and get healthy!



Remember this story on my blog (click before further reading)

Two weeks ago I got a very nice e mail from a warm family that had a sweet dog hanging outside their Parco gate. Could I help? I drove over to the other side of the “town” and to my wonderful surprise, it was the starving scared German Shepard that me and Olivia had tried to feed.
This wonderful family is giving her plenty of food, I de-wormed her, and the family gave me Frontline to put on Bella.
They don’t know if they will be able to keep her but the are willing to do everything for her, to get her back in shape with AWL support.

Bella, is around 8 months old, shy but friendly and would be lovely playmate and friend for older kids, and of course a stable home.
Next week AWL is bringing her for sterilization and shots.
Last Wednesday I went and put a collar on her, thank you Charity for the donation. Bella is now in a fenced in area in their yard. What a lovely Amore Family!
