Val, who is English, and her husband Mino moved to Puglia from the Algarve in Portugal in February 2005. They first started rescuing and caring for stray and abandoned dogs and cats when they were living in Portugal. After five days on the road in two vehicles with 8 dogs and 2 cats they arrived in Puglia where they have continued to help the dogs and cats whenever necessary. Mino has now added caring for a flock of doves at their home, feeding them every morning and evening.
