Freya from Holland is a new great volunteer at our Hospice. She washed all the Great Danes, later on with help from another fantastic volunteer Sarah (GB) Friday afternoon while we are cleaning we share a bottle of vine. Funny how easier it is to clean!

My Dicky, rescued from the streets put in a shelter on a wet cold concrete with a lot of disease. I drove quickly and pick him up. He is the sweetest thing, always happy. Even when he gets shots at the clinic, is his tail going like a drumstick.

Our two (out of three) mini German Shepards keeps us busy cleaning while they keep themselves busy playing and fighting.

Four Great Dane puppies now got loving homes. We are so happy for them. Today a beautiful family came and fell in love with a female they named Dolce.

One of our oldies Tiger 15y old are now feeling at home at the hospice and sleeps comfortable on the sofa.

Michelle adopted a female Mini German Shepard that are living in a house now together with a cat. We wish you all luck.

Leo 15y that never went inside houses. Well this morning he did. My heart is full of joy. My beloved Leo.

Maybe he didn’t like me that much, but I gave him a bath since his fur is so full of parasites. Amazing, before no one could touch him and here, I gave him bath and he stood still.

We also once in a while get wonderful energetic children to volunteer. We learn a lot from them, and hopefully they can be our hope for the future about kindness to animals.

Male and female Mini German Shepards adopted by a wonderful warm generous family from Holland. They named them “Bonnie and Clyde”
Our days are full off Amore, and we hope or clients enjoys their five star Hospice Thats’ Amore.



You have been able to follow us on the blog, the “Mission Jen” with the Great Danes that were at a riding school. A lot of people, children got scared of these gentle giants, and maybe not the best environment for the puppies to grow up in. Jen from Hotel Agora introduced us and she and her husband are the adult dogs’ sponsors.

We picked them up and of course they got stressed about what was going on. They have never during their 3 years left the place. It was heart breaking — their concern for their puppies combined with their anxiety over where they were going, leaving the only home they’d ever known!

Big Puppy Yawn!
We got them to LegaProAnimale, a big family of two adults and 8 puppies (4 weeks old). Once at LPA, they were de-wormed and Advantix applied right away. Dr. Lorenzo was a sport helping us.

During the next 3 days, they will go through a lot of health tests, and the adult male will be castrated (female will be when she is done nursing). This will be her break after many litters in a “Puppy Mill”.

Her eyes seemed to be bothering her, so a double check on that too….we want our clients to feel better, that’s what our donaters want as well.

Jennifer and Christian Hotel Agora, thank you for saving these lives. That’s Amore



Yesterday’s visit to the horse stable where the Great Danes are.

One of the 15 days old puppies. Hard to imagine such a small creature would grow to be one of the largest in the dog-world.

Can’t you just sense the nobility?

This is no way to start a healthy, long life!

Working on rescue plan called “Jen Mission” We will make it!



What a heartbreaking visit today at a stable with two “beautiful” Great Danes, female and male with 15 days old puppies! They all appear to be pure-bred in this breed.

Jenn from Hotel Agora introduced me to “the people that feed” them, and she wants to sponsor this “rescue project.” AWL will have them spayed and neutered but they also need a nice place to be able to relax in for the rest of their lifes. A garden with dog house would be just perfect! They are so sweet together.

Tomorrow I will go and medicate the female.

They are both approximately 4 years-old, and the female appears to have been a “puppy-mill mama” — lots of litters in her few years.

The puppies are also up for adoptions. Please help them!

Remember the blog about the two dogs that were owned by an American and a person “helped” her adopt them away. Well they ended up in “rough” shelter/kennel, not the loving home the owner was lead to believe they went to.

AWL found the owner and brought them together. Lilly she kept, but Frankie she didn’t want to keep (small home and too much work for her with 2 dogs).

Well, Frankie is being fostered by Tammy (pictured) and her 5 dogs. She tells me he is a wonderful dog. Happy and loves to play; he adjusts great and very quickly to the pack, family home. He is 2 years old.

“Big Boy” was in a pack of four dogs at an Agip gas station. He needs a home quickly since his three other pack friends all got new homes…..please, it is heartbreaking that one has to be “abandoned” — left behind not understanding why! Please help a paw-fect friend
