We are still struggling to save that no kill shelter. Now in order to be able to do it a new association has been founded. This association has the main existing reason in saving the shelter and keeping the animals there fed and in health. Therefor we still need economic help, so every one willing to send a small amount is more than welcome. In this no-kill shelter also old unfortunatly now unwanted pets are kept in worth-living conditions including loving care. The money was spent for the animals and free TNR, new boxes and so on and now they have to many debts.
The web site does not exist anymore, we are trying to build up a new one with the other volunteers, but you can see the pics in this site as I put them in from time to time Please help!
This is the account of the association-everything has to be recorded and told in the assembly, so the sent money cannot be used for other purposes than the shelter. If you send money, please do refer to the ABAC/VBHF in an enclosed note, just to make sure the information is crossposted-or simply tell it here in the thread I'm opening today (blue pin)

Hi, all you animal lovers. This is pretty simple.. The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily to meet their quota of getting free food donated every day to abused and neglected animals. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on the purple box "fund food for animals" for free. This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising.

Here's the web site!

Thanks to all new members for joining - and to the old ones for staying ;-)

please use this group to post alerts and discuss .

I was absent for a long while - but I'm coming back slowly - thanks to all who kept that group alive while I was away struggling for our furry and feathered friends in "real life"

With a gentle shake of paw

Blog: URGENT! Plese help Marilena - the woman of  

Dear members,

Marilena,  the woman who cared for the dogs of "SOSCoky", urgently needs our help. The community of Santa Maria di Castellabate sent her a penalty and Marilena now badly needs money to employ a lawyer - money that Marilena of course can not get together.

Please read and crosspost the following plead - in the name of justice!

I thank you all from my heart!

SOSCoky emergency update

Dear animal lovers,

it would seem that despite all our, and your, best efforts to help the poor dogs of Santa Maria di Castellabate and to offer our moral and practical help to Marilena and the shelter, things are going wrong:

After out visit to the Mayor of Castellabate, when we assumed that finally appropriate action would be taken to house the dogs in humane, healthy conditions, the forces of law and order and the local dignitaries did indeed take fright, but instead of arranging for the completion of the new local refuge, they brought all their weight to bear on Marilena. She has been made the scapegoat for all their lack of care and failure to take any action to help these poor creatures, rather than giving her the respect she deserves for devoting nearly twenty years of unpaid work to what anyone else would have given up long ago as a lost cause.

Three weeks ago she received a legal notice from his Worship the Mayor, informing her that the police would be coming to seize the dogs and ship them off to various dogs’ homes all over Campania. At our last visit at the beginning of November things nevertheless seemed to come to a good end. A vet of the A.S.L managed the affairs and the dogs will come to good shelters. So far so good for the animals.

But things run different for Marilena: The community conveniently planted an article in the local press agonising over the conditions at this ‘illegal/unauthorised’ place, which of course they hadn’t bothered to do anything about for over 6 years, and Marilena was held up as a monster and the cause of the animals’ distress.

To add insult to injury they have even had the nerve to inform her that she will be held liable for every last brass farthing that they, of course, decide this ‘errand of mercy’ has cost them. Marilena needs our help NOW. Time is very short to launch an appeal against this monstrous miscarriage of justice, but as we all know, lawyers don’t come cheap. Virtually every penny Marilena manages to earn goes on the dogs and there are just no funds to pay for legal action. So we are appealing to all of you, who really do care, to make a difference.

We need 2,500 Euro as a down payment for the lawyer to take on the appeal. Just 10 euro from only 250 of you would make it possible to call a halt to this appalling victimisation. The bank account details of the association are given below.

Please send your donations with the purpose "Marilena" to:

{ else }   Message: Don't give that guy any dog!!!! Please x-post!  

Recently we recieved a call from a man claiming to be a dog trainer.
His name was Will Duncan. He said that he rehabilitated dogs and trained
them for various companies including for the handicapped. He also said
he was from USA Dog Training and he personally trained Cesar Millan.
He will tell various stories, but basically wants to get free dogs. He
claims to have federal and state licenses. He recently stole dogs from
a Jefferson County shelter. He is from Topeka and claims that he just
moved there from California .

If fact, he is a big scammer. Nothing he says is true. He told us he
wants aggressive dogs to rehab and med. to large sized high drive dogs.
We got a call from the Kansas Animal Health Department to warn us about

They were trying to warn everyone before he called, but he had already
called us.

We believe he is using these dogs for pit-bait. We believe he is
selling these "high-drive" or "aggressive" dogs that he gets from shelters to
pit fighters who use them to "train" there dogs to fight and kill. He
lives in a trailer in Topeka with his brother. Last time it was checked,
he had 14 dogs that he keeps in tiny pens in and around his trailer.
Please do not release any of your dogs to him.  If he does call,
please call Judy Bishop at 785-633-7002 with any information you obtain
about him.

They are trying to make a criminal case up but he just keeps staying
one step in front of the law.
The personal information I have obtained about him is:
Name: Will Duncan
Address: 1123 NE Jefferson, Trailer #4, Topeka , KS (actual address)
Cell Phone: 785-231-7245
Toll Free Number: 877-949-9DOG
Fake Company Name: USA Dog Training
Thanks and Good Luck,
Please forward to other shelters and animal people!

Demnächst Importverbot für Katzen- und Hundefell in Österreich

Am 16.2.2006 hat der österreichische Ministerrat einen Antrag für ein Importverbot von Katzen- und Hundefellen beschlossen. Dieser liegt jetzt zur Umsetzung im Ministerium bei Frau Bundesministerin Rauch-Kallat auf. Der Beschluss ist ein bedeutender Schritt.

Für ein Importverbot sind jetzt alle Hindernisse beseitigt. Damit Frau Bundesministerin Rauch-Kallat das entsprechende Gesetz erlässt, hält VIER PFOTEN den Druck weiter aufrecht.
Ban on the import of cat and dog fur in Austria expected

On the 16th of February 2006 the Austrian Council of Ministers issued a proposal on a ban of import of cat and dog fur and is now expecting the implementation by Minister Mrs. Rauch-Kallat. This decision is an important step within the field of animal protection.

Now time has come for the implementation of an import ban in Austria. FOUR PAWS will maintain the pressure to make sure that the responsible minister takes action.

Gewinnerin des Hauptpreises ist Frau Raphaela Stock aus Leoben, sie gewinnt ein Wochenende auf einem österreichischen Bio-Bauernhof. Die weiteren Gewinner erhalten Warengutscheine von der Firma "JA! Natürlich" und tierleidfreie Kosmetikprodukte.
Creative contest

The winner of the first prize is Ms. Raphaela Stock from Leoben. She wins a weekend at an Austrian organic farm. The other winners receive vouchers for goods of the Austrian company "Ja! Natürlich" and cosmetics produced without animal testing.
Die Organisation Human Society International (HSI) gibt bekannt, dass Katzen- und Hundefelle auch in der EU produziert werden.

Anfang 2006 erreichte uns die Nachricht, dass auch Katzen- und Hundefelle in der EU produziert werden sollen. HSI Nachforschungen deuten darauf hin, dass Felle (von Katzen und Hunden) möglicherweise auch aus Tschechien kommen könnten.

VIER PFOTEN Niederlande startet Unterschriftenaktion

VIER PFOTEN Niederlande startete am 23. Februar 2006 mit einer landesweiten Unterschriftenaktion für einen Importstopp von Katzen- und Hundefellen in die Niederlande. Viele Unterschriftenlisten wurden bereits ausgeschickt und das Feedback der Bevölkerung ist sehr gut.
 Czech Republic:
The organisation Human Society International (HIS) states that cat and dog fur is also produced in the EU.

At the beginning of 2006 we received the news that cat and dog fur shall be also produced in Europe. A HSI investigation indicates that fur (from cats and dogs) may also be manufactured in the Czech Republic.

Ciao Daniela, ieri finamlente sono riuscita a vedere Otto, il boxer di Petosino.  E' molto bello, di taglia media, e' superagitato, peggio di Penny, mi sembra sia tenuto bene, e' pulito, muscoloso e con il pelo molto bello, avrebbe bisogno di essere un po' educato perche' non ascolta assolutamente i suoi padroni.
Non  mi hanno detto di volerlo sopprimere ma di volerlo dare via perche' andando a vivere in un appartamento non hanno spazio x tenerlo. Mi hanno detto che al momento lo tengono chiuso in un recinto dove ha  la cuccia (pero' non me l'hanno fatto vedere) e non mi hanno parlato di  catena.....
Mi hanno detto che lo daranno solo a persone che gli garantiranno di trattarlo bene.
E' tatuato.  Ho fatto un paio di foto, gli occhi sono sparati perche' era buio.
