Normally we do not accept puppies at the hospice. We are not a shelter, we are a sanctuary for senior dogs. It can be very stressful for older dogs to have puppies playing and yapping all day long.
But, these three were being found on the NAVY Base and were going to be caught and handed to the shelters. And we know how these shelters operates.

Two, we have found home to, but the brown black, she is still waiting for your warm arms.



After a great day in the shelter near Caserta, Martina, Olivia and I drove

home. As with every other day, we stopped by to feed The Mother of all the puppies by the church in Castle Volturno. 
We were very tired after a long day of working in the shelter, but decided we had to stop and feed them. And what a lucky decision! 

One of the puppies’ head was stuck in an empty foodcan, totally exhausted and dizzy. We got his head out and could make sure he wasn’t cut or wounded. 
We de-wormed them all; mother Bobby, puppies, and sister Chicca, and gave them plenty of food. The place was full of trash,and we tried to clean up a little. 

We found two puppies that had beenkilled, probably by other strays. But it made us concerned, we didn’t want any other puppies to be killed. We had to move them quickly! 
Also pushing us was that mother Bobby was old and tired, and needed to have a break. Another big factor, was that other area puppies had gotten out, were killed by the cars on the busy street next to them.

The next morning we picked the puppies up, seven cuties. 

We started to wonder if the puppies were from two litters.  We drove to the hospice and Lori Garcia was there and helped us to make one room into a “nursery room” for the seven bundles of joy.

Dr. Vittorio came over on an Italian holiday, and helped us with examination and vaccination of all the puppies, and even some of our other associates:Valerie’s rescue dog, and Chiarra’s boyfriend’s rescue dog. It sure was one hot, buzzy, busy day.

The next day we had a wonderful lady named Julia Johnson helping us to foster five of the puppies while two stayed for observation at the hospice: Tiny and Marlene. 

Tiny was the smallest and skinniest, he was very low and mellow, so he had to get extra puppy milk. Marlene was shy and we wanted him to grow and glow, and so they both did.

All puppies are now adopted and doing wonderfully.




Two wonderful volunteers, Ivan and Fede found mother with her two puppies. They are searching for good loving homes. AWL made sure they are de wormed and healthy, and vaccinated.
If you want to adopt please contact us

That’s Amore help.



This is momma Dog! She is “very” pregnant and will have any days now. She is a stray no where to go, no arms to be folded into. Instead she is on the streets, ice cold and everyone is kicking her away.

AWL got her a wood dog house for now, some blankets and food. She is in a “kind off” safe place outside in a parking place. Its not on the busy streets.
She is so loving and warm, and only want to please you. AWL would be so enormous happy if you could lend us your yard, or garage until the puppies are 8 weeks and we can adopt them away. We will pay for medical treatment, food, blankets and stay in touch with you every day to know how our babies are doing. Please don’t let them freeze to death. That’s Cold Amore.



Here’s Trevor…..

We still have mom and dad Great Dane that we rescued 2 months ago with 8 puppies. We have 4 puppies remaining, Cindy & Morgana (F), and Trevor & Stewart (M). A Great Dane rescue organization in Italy is going to help us to adopt away the puppies (born 30 July) to great families. Momma and Daddy will hopefully go to Spain together, (we need sponsors for that trip). A great home is awaiting them there.

Hilly Billy’s from the country side….Me and Stewart!


Cindy surprise! Out for a stroll…

Our sweet Morgana…..

And momma dog, Lady, who we drove to Lega Pro to have sterilized. Thank you to Pio for helping me lift 60 kg of dog into my SUV.



Having puppies is not easy but kind of fun. AWL got a phone call about 6 puppies 4 weeks old pushed down into a bucket and pushed into an American Park. 2 got adopted by the Italian guards, one by an American girl, and me, I am “fostering” 3 of them at the hospice.

I am more of an “oldy lover,” puppies are not really my thing. But my opinion doesn’t help them, and they needed help. They are now 7-8 weeks old and sweeter than sweet roaming around peeing and pooping everywhere, and then they slide in it. Eating like small little pigs, but gosh it is so sweet to see them sleep so safe together, on top of each other.

The hospice is a place they can be safe, and grow up until someone adopts them.

It was time for their vaccinations and off to Dr. Damiani we went. They really were good, taking their shots like little troopers. They are 2 girls and 1 boy.

But little Gracie had to stay for a biopsy. She has some skin defects that we don’t know what it is. On her back paw was a huge blister that hurt her, and still no fur on her back tail. It looks like a rat tail. I went out in the car and got a stuffed animal for her so she has a roommate at the clinic.

I hope Gracie you will soon be back at the hospice, sleeping in your dog bed that Aunt Tracey sent to you all the way from America.

That’s Amore!



Adorable puppies, rescued by Martina and Pio. AWL visited them and they are so sweet.

Found down by the railroad near the dog catchers shelters and brought to veterinarian

They were so full of parasites that it took hours to remove them. Now, clean and shiny and up for a nice warm forever home.
