STRAY STREET PROJECT (SSP)

0
In Campania Region the high number of strays exist.
Many of them are happy on the streets. There are people feeding them, and keeping an eye on them. AWL have had what we call “street project” since 2009. We know the group of strays that exist in our area. AWL volunteer checks on them, makes sure they are healthy, flea treatment, de worming, spay and neuter. If you want to sponsor your stray please send an earmarked donation “stray project” We will keep you updated with journal and pictures.
“Luigi got several ticks and we had to flea treat him. It looks that he’s living in Lago Patria between the animal shop, the supermarket and the pizzeria. Other than the ticks he looks well fed and happy. He is such a sweet heart!” (Pio and Martina)

 AWL have since 2009 looked after the strays that are healthy in our area. Many street dogs are happy on the streets. You do them a big favor by letting them be on the streets. They have their freedom, they love to “work” guard their area’s, they get plenty of food. But it is when they get sick or hurt when they big problem comes in. Our team Martina and Pio and Mia have emergency kit in our cars. We de worm, flea treat them, and look over their bodies. A treat is always appriciated when we are done.

He lives inside the post office area, and sometimes you can see him walking around in Lago Patria.

He’s small (around 6-7 kg) and I named him Titino.
He got a sore up on his leg and we had put an antibiotic ointment that was inside the emergency kit.
Then we put advantix since he had tick and at least he got a treat 
Here in the pictures you can see him chewing his treat and in the other pics you can see his sore.
If you want to support our project please earmark the donation with “SSP” -Stray Street Project

Today AWL got help from two wonderful girls. Olivia 4 year-old and Jackie (always very young and blossom) At the shelter they cleaned out for the puppies and put in new clean blankets. Then they de-wormed all the puppies so they will be stronger and healthier. Amore girls, thank you!

Journey to Cat Island

0
Animals Without Limits did something a little different (for us) today. We journeyed to the nearby island of Procida, to treat some of the harbor cats in residence there.

Dr. Inga, recently returned from sabbatical, and I took some Frontline(tm) and de-worming medicine to treat as many cats as time (and the cats) allowed. Dr Inga had been there before and knew that these cats were well fed and satisfied with the people giving them respect. But she also knew they had a need for treatment.

We took the 45 minute boat ride (ferry) over from Pozzouli. A beautiful day, the sea air and gently rolling waves… pure magic! We managed to treat 6 cats. One had lost his eye and it was running around with a big open wound. Dr. Inga and I tried to catch him but had to give up since he was hiding under a boat and fishing material. Dr.Inga will be returning to the island again soon, and will seek out this cat to try again to catch and treat him.

Dr. Inga knew some of the local people and introduced Animals Without Limits, and our mission to them. Raw fish from one of the harbor restaurants was handed to us to make our mission easier (sushi for the cats!).

Maybe 6 cats treated doesn’t seem like much, but to those 6 cats, it sure means a lot.
