When we launched our website on 26th January 2008 we were overwhelmed by the response. Our visitors have given us increased confidence to continue with our efforts to take care of the stray and abandoned dogs and cats in our area of Puglia, and to one day achieve our dream of building an animal shelter….

Piccina

¬†Piccina woke up yesterday morning squeaking in pain. We had no idea what was wrong with her. A trip to the vet was in order. Piccina is becoming quite an old lady now. She has been with us since 2007,and was not a puppy when she arrived,so am guessing she is anything from 12 years…

Ellen

Ellen

Its with huge sadness I have to tell you that gorgeous Ellen has left us for Rainbow Bridge.She was hit by a car a few days ago and died instantly. As you might remember Ellen was adopted by my daughter and son in law ,two years ago,and went to live in Cornwall. She was so…

Precious Paddy

It’s with a very heavy heart I have to tell you Paddy went to the bridge this afternoon. Our poor boy had been diagnosed with kidney failure a few weeks ago. He had lost loads of weight weight in recent months, but we thought he had started to put some back on since being on…

Pallina / Wilfie /

One of our little cats,Pallina,went missing a couple of weeks ago..We waited for her to come home every night,but she didn’t. We had almost given up hope,when one night ,two weeks after disappearing,there she was,skinny as anything,and absolutley starving hungry… We think she had been shut in somewhere for that amount of time. She never…

Poor Charlie!

I was in my kitchen yesterday afternoon,Charlie and a few others were outside on the veranda, I heard what I thought was one of the dogs with their head in the food bag,I went out there and discovered it wasn’t that at all. It was Charlie,trying desperatley to stand up,the noise I heard was his…

Charlie

Oh what a month March has been for us! Seems to be one thing after another. Four ECG’s ,three operations for dental work, Paddy with injuries after his fight with Lupo and Nana,and now probably the worse of all,our poor old Charlie has been diagnosed with heart worm! For those of you that are not…

Tuppence - a Puglia Pooch

Three dogs to the vet yesterday,all for dental treatment..I was a nervous wreck,as all three are quite old.Sparky almost 15,Squirt 10,and Tuppence,who knows!! We only know we have had her 10 years and she was far from young when we rescued her. All three had to have heart checks last week to see they were…

Puppy Bill & Charlie

This morning we took Puppy Bill and Charlie to the vets. They both had similar symtoms,which they have had for some time. Both have been treated before,but it hadnt worked. They both have a dry harsh cough. When it first started we thought they had kennel cough,but it turned out not to be.This time the…

Sparky ‘s Emergency Vets Visit

This evening about 6 pm,Sparky was sat on the bed with a few others and Mino. They all want to be next to him,Skinny became very jealous and snarled at Sparky,who fell off the bed. He screamed in pain.We picked him up,he was in lots of pain. Its always a fear we have,that he would…
