Remember a month ago the sad picture of a very sick Fiore. Here he is, doing so much better its amazing. Now they could cut of all his horrible fur.
And more love, and bathing…it was a bittersweet moment. It is always heartbreaking to put them back in their cages. But with love and stimulation they have a better luck to find a home.
We brought the dog food that had been donated earlier in the week with us.
And yes, the twins Shelly and Gabby were working really hard and beautiful. They carried, bathed, and walked the shelter dogs, and the whole time with a great attitude. Thank you so much Shelly and Gabby, have a safe trip back to the States.
And our trooper volunteer Olivia, who took out the mother and gave her a break and a bath. Of course some Amore afterwards to.
Olivia so wanted to take out Tiger and have him washed. For 30 minutes she was standing by his cages yelling….we gave up and Leah helped her. Thanks Leah for treats and the hard work, it is always a pleasure having you with us in the team.
Aha, Yolanda well that was a hard working woman. She even washed the cages. Yolanda, you rock! Thank you so much for giving these dogs a very good day.
And we carried and carried, and we also had some medicine with us…not much but it will help some. (Leah had all the colourful leaches around her neck)
More puppy love!
And thank you Elaine (Public Affairs) for coming out making a story about our work and hopefully inform people about the situations.
Towels Lynn and Tammy.
And Anna who stopped by before going to work with a big bag of dog food. Thank you for helping making a difference and for your love. That’s Amore!
Puppies make us smile and bond together. Everyone loved Star Stripe! He is up for adoption!
Even Olivia wanted to bring him home….she already have 17 dogs….so mom said NO!!!
Leah walked Phillipo who is waiting after two years in this shelter to come home to his new owner Ulla in Stockholm ,Sweden.
Thank you all for giving your time and love to these who ended up locked in against their will.
AWL love you guys.

But a little drink now and then doesn’t hurt. Jackie out great volunteer made sure that everything is clean blankets and their little house.
It is not a glamorous job, picking poop after 85 dogs….Brandy did a great job!
Pio an Italian volunteer is at the shelter every Saturday, early morning until late afternoon. Him and Martina (another IT great volunteer) are fantastic.
It was a lot of Amore in the rain. Thank you AWL volunteers; Jackie, Lindy, Eric, Todd, Mark, Brandy, Mia, Kristin.
Late afternoon drove AWL out the fridge, and it was a horrible weather. It rained cats and dogs–bad joke–the weather broke the sunscreen down.
Rossella was so touched for the gift from you all –see yesterdays blog–and I also want to thank you all who forwarded the e mails about “shelter in need”.
Thank you all, soon we will post videos from the happy refrigerator moment

This is where AWL had their Cleaning Mission 3. This time we focused on the dogs, and most of them loved it. It was a wet Amore day. And, the volunteers did all the work brilliant.
