Gea 6 months old is adopted.

–Now we are collecting money to have her sterilized before we are handing her over to her new home. It is a safety we do for our “clients”. Please help us with the donations, earmark it GEA

Spayed, vaccinated, and microchip.
We want that kind of safety to our four-legged friends to do our best to protect them into their future. Very few but some, don’t do it since back in their mind they know they will not keep the dog. Why then bather with costs?
We have heard many scary stories. Families leaving, and throwing their four legged members out that they have had for a couple of years. Its a shame!

Gea is also on try with her new Master, to see if they are a great match. We are a very overprotective organization, with documents, contracts, and home visits/calls. AWL sees this as any relationship between two living creatures, spending time and love together under the same roof.

Wouldn’t you like to feel protected?

That’s Amore!



 This is rescue Jack (Jake) that we wrote about earlier. He got neutered, rabies vaccinated and microchip yesterday. And today he got home to his foster rescue family. Now that’s Amore.

Thanks Dr Damiani Clinic and thank you all sponsors that helps our projects.



Mario, our gas station dog, is a happy stray. You read on earlier blog entries that we picked him up for castration and would later on release him. His guardian angel, the coffee lady at the station’s cafe, doesn’t want him to be adopted away. He is her friend and he also guards her. The gas station people love him, he greets everyone and he escorts the car to the exit.

At LegaProAnimale it turned out that he had a microchip, and according to Italian law you are not allowed to do anything to a dog with a microchip until you find the owner. Of course it was the holiday season, Internet was down and finally the name was found, but no phone number.

We just hated to put him in a kennel box, Mario who was so used to his freedom and work at the gas station. He was a happy stray.

The address was a closed industrial area! For ten days LegaProAnimale and us tried to find someone to get permission from, yet nothing. We couldn’t reach the owner. Dr Friz was frustrated and so were we, and Mario.

To make matters worse, LegaProAnimale was closing for the month of January, it’s their vacation month, so keeping him there would be made more difficult. I just felt like we had to release him, his soul would die in that kennel. I asked Tracey for her opinion and she felt the same. I asked Jackie to visit him during the days.

Jackie wrote,

“What a warm and wonderful greeting I received from Mario today! It was worth the drive out in the yucky rain.
The first thing I did was give him some wet food. You can’t tell by the photo, but he was wagging his tail as he ate! “

Tracey and I went out to pick him up, and we met Dr Friz who was very kind and carried Mario out since he refused to walk with a leash on. We took off to the gas station and when we got closer to “his” fields, Mario started to whine in the back seat.

We have never seen such a happy stray! He jumped out from the SUV and ran around the place like crazy, the gas station people came, the coffee bar owner came out together with the coffee lady and greeted us with big hugs and thank yous.

Mario was home, and you could tell it. I loved Tracey’s warm comment, that she was happy to have seen/explored that there indeed are happy strays.

This was a warm Amore day!

Our little rescue puppy that Foster-mom Brandy is taking care of very well. Coco has a problem with her stools: loose. In the last blog entry about Coco, you could read that Jackie took her to the vet and got Coco vaccinated, changed diet etc. This morning I got an email from Brandy saying that the stools were loose and now she could see some blood. She wondered if it could be worms? I saw when Coco got de wormed and I also thought that she had been de wormed a second time. I said I couldn’t believe that but please get to the ER quick. Wonderful Brandy did! ER said it was worms and didn’t charge! They needed a stool sample tomorrow.

Brandy, wonderful foster-mom–and the ER vet at Villa Felice–thank you two fantastic people.

I got an e mail from a woman named Laura who told me that the store sold out a lot of dog things for 50 cent. At the same moment my husband was at the store so I called him and told him the great news. He bought several bags of shampoo, brushes, etc (this is only from one bag)

Thank you so much for that e mail–you helped AWL save a lot of money!

You remember Mario that lived around the gas station and loved his coffee bar woman that he always escorted home after her shift. This gas station is out in the middle of no-where, and next to the highway. Jackie and I went there and picked Mario up and took him to LegaProAnimale for castration. The coffee lady didn’t want him to get adopted away since she loved him so dearly, and he loved his gas station. We all love Mario, such a friendly and sweet boy.

At the vet clinic we get to know he has a microchip! I found out what dog catcher area he was registered in and Isabelle called. There is an owner who has sent in a missing dog paper!

The interesting part is that there was no phone number, only an address. Of course this is happening in the holiday season when the clinic is being closed a couple of days….poor Mario is in limb, in a kennel waiting. Tomorrow hopefully we can find out who is his owner and do they want him back??
