Animals Without Limits

American Swedish non profit organisation

Dear members,
AWL, NALA, and TNR are combining our resources to help 4 dogs that are currently abandoned in a boarding kennel here in Naples. Bella, Lilly, Vivian, and Miss Mamie/Rosie.
I must first ask that everyone please refrain from making negative comments. We all feel the same way; we want to stomp our feet, yell at the top of our lungs, scream bad words and place blame…NONE of this will resolve the situation and help the dogs.

Here’s a summary of the story that began in May of this year:

The owner did not make plans for the dogs. A plea was made and an animal lover stepped in. However, things were not as they seemed. The owner PCS’d from Naples, the animal lover spent their own time and money on vet fees, kennel fees, paperwork, etc. The paperwork was not able to be completed because of August holidays in Italy. The shipping was going to total $10,000. The owner did not and does not have the money. The animal lover, although willing to help financially, was not and is not able to spend that large sum of money for an irresponsible owner. I wrote to the owner’s prior Naples command and there is nothing that the command can/will do.

Fast forward to today:

FORTUNATELY, the kennel owner still has the dogs. The kennel fees have been accumulating since 17Aug. The cost of the kennel is €20 a day for the 4 dogs. I will meet with the kennel owner this coming week to see if this is a package price or is it €5 per day per dog.

As of 07Sep, the total owed to the kennel is €420. In order to help these dogs, the kennel fees need to be raised, foster homes and/or permanent homes need to be found. The amount needed for the kennel increases by €20 each day.

All of the dogs are female, spayed, and micro-chipped. The microchips will be able to be changed to the new owners. I do not know much about each dog’s age and temperaments as I have not yet met the dogs. When I meet with the kennel owner, I will meet the dogs for the first time and take current photos. The only photo I have available is the one posted and I do not know how old it is.

AWL has room at their Hospice for Miss Mamie/Rosie but the kennel must be paid before we can take her.

Any and all help is needed and appreciated. Donations/foster home/adoption

Donations can be made via Paypal on AWL’s website or here on the blog at – please comment “Four girls” so the funds will be earmarked for these specific dogs.

Thank you
Mia-AWL, Angela- NALA, & Trina-TNR



Momma Rosie went in for a health check and being de-wormed too. She was a super trooper in the car Nicolle told me.

Momma Rosie is young 2-3 years old. Lovely and sleeps with the cats in front of the fire place. She is up for adoption, to a forever loving home who never will give her up. She have had a home before and got kicked out on the street.

My lovely 15 year old Kiki Joy got her bandage changed and stitches removed. What a lady.

Frank was doing great after the surgery, they amputated his leg and he could return to his healing retreat at the Hospice Casa dell’Amore. Thank you Dr Longo!

He is such a wonderful guy. And as soon he is healed he is going to a home, a lovely girl Chiara have adopted him, she is a former vet.ass. Couldn’t be better. Stay strong Frank.

A food is the best medicine. That’s Amore!

AWL have for a long time wanted a veterinarian to come and do house visit at the Hospice. Many times it is difficult to move oldies all at the same time, and young ones for vaccination and removing stitches. Martina’s veterinarian Dr Vittorio came and was wonderful to all the animals with his calm and gentle way. AWL is so thankful for him taking the time and giving it to all the Casa dell’Amore’s clients. That’s Amore

Thank you Martina for arranging this. And thank you Nicolle for fostering Momma dog Rosie.
