Mia Mattsson Mercer is being honored by Harliga Hunds Magazine “The Dog Friend of the Year” for her fantastic commitment (work in Italy)

From Mia; Thank you so much Lotta Sjölin Fredriksson for posting and lovely words on my private wall. It was a nice “welcome” home. I want to share my honor with so many, and I am afraid to start mentioning names and probably with my fog brain forget to write someones name. First I want to thank Magazine Harliga Hundar for  putting such a big spotlight on a big problem. THANK YOU for daring being such a flexible interesting Magazine. That’s Amore. 

To  journalist Katarina Arnstad who also have a great mind and heart, who listens and understand how important the whole picture is even how bad it is (or strange) You really help making a difference for animals in need. Your pen becomes magic and the message can come out in the light. THANK YOU! 

My animals friends and supporters in Sweden, Germany, Italy, USA without you we cannot exist. Thank you for believing in me and my passion and our volunteers. To every animal rescuer, single person or organization the honor should go to you too. I know how hard you work and how hard it is. Keep the passion flowing, and let the tears give you strength. That’s Amore. 

Thank you everyone, Grazie, Tack Mia

PS THE Magazine is out in the Swedish stores.


Surely you remember Oscar who was being fed by Lynn (UK) who contacted AWL for help because she noticed Oscar was an older gentleman and his eyes looked grey. Mia took him to an eye specialist who is from Napoli, but working at a clinic in Roma. Different examinations were made and to see if there was an infection behind the cornea, a yet more advanced examination had to be made.

Oscar couldn’t be put out on the street again. As an older gentleman we wouldn’t know when or if he would become blind. Trina became his foster mother and she has made beautiful adoption fliers . We wanted to do the eye examination that could tell us more about his sight — and future.

I talked with and made an appointment with Dr Alexandria and Trina brought him there. She is the one taking these lovely pictures, like the one above of Oscar kissing Dr Alexandria.

Ahhhh, lovely drugs kicking in!

Top team Dr Alexandria and Dr Longo always provide excellent treatment. AWL thanks them for helping the strays — giving them a second chance. Trina, you are amazing, working hard to help Oscar to find “the home” and I know you paid for his vaccination and microchip, and driving him to the vet clinic. Lynn for sponsoring with 1/3 for the eye examinations and AWL paid 2/3.

You are wonderful helping the strays and for understanding that with team work we can do magic!
