DUTCH MILITARY COMMUNITY DONATION TO AWL

0
I have to tell you the whole story. My phone rang at 20.30 one evening and I had had a horrible day with a lot of hard work and difficult cases and difficult people to deal with. I looked at the phone and it said “Barbara German Shepherds” This was a Dutch family that had adopted 2 puppies from us several weeks ago. In my negative mind at that moment I thought, “gosh they don’t want the puppies anymore.”

The phone rang again, I took it and answered thinking “better to deal with it now than tomorrow”.

I heard this glad voice telling me how wonderful the puppies were, and how they enjoyed them.

Now I was clueless. ‘Can we, the Dutch Military Community, come by the hospice?. We have a check to you for 600 euros!” You see, each nation’s contingent earns money at the annual International Bazaar by selling food, drinks or other culturally-unique items, and then donate the proceeds it to a worthy cause. The Dutch contingent thought Animals Without Limits, and our hospice, was just such a worthy cause.

What a great ending of a rough day! I was floating on clouds. Thank you so much Dutch Military community for bringing such a wonderful early Christmas gift to the Hospice “Casa della Amore”

In honor of the donation, we had a little bit of bubbles, and the four legged oldies thought it was fun with so much attention and love.

I have always seen these kinds of big checks in magazines and on TV, and always thought it would be wonderful to hold one. And let me tell you, it was wonderful.

Showing our Memorial Wall of past clients that now play at the Rainbow bridge.

Thank you beautiful, warmhearted, JP, Barbara, Tiko del Rojj, Hans Stuij, Dita Bergwerff, Freya van Engelen. And of course the whole Dutch Military Community. Thanks for all the Amore.

(And the dog food that you also brought with you)

PICTURES FROM DOG WALK WASH SHELTER LAST SUNDAY

Look at this beauty, she loved it. By the way, this female is so calm and well behaved and she is up for adoption. The family doesn’t want her. If we didn’t have 17 dogs I would take her in a heart-beat. She is the most wonderful, well behaved kind dog I ever met.

Anna and Cindy did a good job washing dogs, some didn’t want to at first but afterwards they felt great.

This “little” one didn’t want to walk up to the bath tub.

The whole team helping out, and calm well behaved children join too.

Another bath…..

Megan and Stumpy, he was so in love with Megan it was heart-breaking watching. Since we knew that Megan and Tracey “only” were here for a couple of days volunteering. Stumpy from a past blog that ate his tail and AWL rescued him from bleeding to death. Look at him!
Also a wonderful spirit.

Brett and Nate were the great dog walkers. We were so amazed over how many dogs they got to walk, and after every walk they brushed the dog before putting him in. We were amazed.

This little one was found by Angela. He came walking on a very busy street in this condition, nearly being hit by trucks. We named him Fiore since we think he looks like a flower that with the right medicine and love, will soon bloom. We need help with donations to make that become reality.

Tracey and Megan flew in a couple of days from the States to help out. Stumpy was so in Amore heaven.

Here they come Anna and Cindy, super volunteers that had the day before collected money on Base and then bought dog food that they brought with them. That’s Amore
Thank you all again…you made such a difference …gave us smiles and the dogs hope. It was a very good day.
Mark, Brett, Nate, Cindy, Anna, Megan, Tracey, Angela with family, Olivia….fantastic Amore.

PLEASE HELP WITH FOOD DONATION

After a month of hard research where I have visited many horrible shelters, some with up to 500 dogs in them, we now have our next focus/project. It is a nightmare: many are old, many are sick and many are begging to get out. Several of these shelters, or portions of them at least, are housing animals on behalf of the government, but the agency won’t pay the money for food and medicine for the dogs. According to the operators, they (government agency) claim they don’t have any money. The dogs are suffering yet according to the law they are not allowed to be euthanized.

AWL really needs your help now! We have decided to help one shelter this summer. This one in particular will not have any food for their 400 dogs. They are in debt at the dog-food dealer, who won’t extend any more food on credit to them. Without your help, these dogs will starve!

Please arrange a food collection at your work, school or social group here in Campania. One person can send out this email and add his/her room and contact information. Let us know who is collecting and where, and we will arranged pick up from you next Friday, with delivery directly to the shelter You can also make a donation and we will buy the food.

I thank Admiral David and Ylva Mercer (not related to me) for their generous donation, and Vania Lamanna at Support Site who is undertaking a big food drive through her network of friends and associates.

Thank you for helping us helping those who don’t have a voice.

LOVELY AMORE DAY

Marie (UK) had told me about the puppies in Lago Patria and today I went with her to have a look at them and feed them. To my wonderful surprise their mother is the one I fed in Varcaturo for 2 years and then she disappeared. Happy to see she was doing well–and her puppies!

Then we drove to the NEX warehouse on Base to collect some dog food donations and cat food too. The cat food I gave to Lynn (UK) who is the Varcaturo cat lady. And the dog food we will drive to a new shelter this up coming Saturday.
(AWL Sweden left Italy on a bus to Sweden yesterday–what an adventure! Thank you for everything)

SATURDAY MISSION

0

Last Friday picked up another big food donation from NAVY BASE NEX. We are so grateful to you all involved.
Saturday we drove out to St Francesco Shelter with 500 dogs and some puppies to Olivia’s and Max big joy. They were so happy for all the bags of dog food, thank you so much.

Max and Olivia were not happy when asked to put the puppies down. And boy, did they run around petting and playing with all the dogs. I had a hard time keeping up. They loved it.


After wards we went to Lega Pro Animale to pick up Rose and Cody who had been spayed.

And Todd walked Athena and Bella while I was roaming around after Max and Olivia again…they roaming after all the cats and buffalo’s. What an amore day.
