HELP NEEDED URGENTLY!! June 05, 2006 3:31 PM

 

HELP NEEDED URGENTLY!!

A no-kill shelter in Italy that also takes in old pets (which horrible people don’t want to or, sometimes, can’t keep anymore), risks imminent closure!!  The animals are kept in really good living conditions with lots of TLC,   The people running the shelter took it over years ago even though it was already indebted.  They work a lot with the local farmers who still have the old mentality of not wanting to spend to neuter – so for years they have done this AT THEIR OWN EXPENSE.

Last month the president of the shelter, an elderly and sickly man (but with a heart of gold) paid the employees with his own money, but now THE BANKS ARE CLOSING IN – and want their money – there may also be something political behind this. 

We all live in this global village now so, I , unashamedly ask everyone that this message may reach to help us.  No matter how little you can donate – IT IS GOING TO HELP!  Please help these wonderful people to continue to look after or furry companions. Here below is the link for their official site where you can visit and see for yourselves what it looks like and below that you will find the bank data for bank to bank transfers.

I FORGOT TO SAY THAT...... June 05, 2006 3:55 PM

On a few occasions I have sent money to the US in response to an appeal on care2 and what I did was to just pop the euros into an old Christmas card with a note, seal it and send it ............ and it always got there quite safely.  Since I am not talking about huge sums of money, I wasn't too anxious about it and I also didn't have to bother with bank transfers etc.etc.  I am sure the shelter address is on their home page but if not I will ask Karin to get it for us.  Please remember that many small donations could add up to something important for these poor darlings!! Thanks all for any present and future support!!  [ send green star]

Thanks so much, Jessie!

I put the datas on my personal page and wanted to put them on the opening of this one as well-but somehow I did not think of opening a thread- I'm a a bit absentminded sometimes-Thanks a lot for thinking of this!

And thanks to everybody for everything you can do!

Please know that there are also very old dogs and cats kept with love-pets that nobody wanted and no shelter would keep alive according to their age-but pets that loved their owners dearly and have been sent to the shelter when old (humans are so grateful, right?). But at least they are allowed to be alive and in Naturns/Naturno they are petted dearly and kept well-but if the shelter closes, what future will be there for example a 16-year old german shephard?

Barbara sent a check from Colorado and I still have it awaiting the final appointment with the journalist of a local newspaper as I want to make a case out of this: money coming from the States as well to save the shelter.

Afterwards I'll put it in their bank account-but I'd like the foto of the check put in the local news in order to promote help from people.

So everything might help: money, articles, letters of solidarity-all you can do might help-and thanks for everything in advance!

Jessie rocks!

Hugs

Karin

another shelter also needs help April 03, 2007 6:27 AM

Ciao a tutti amici animalisti,

questo è un appello urgente per una raccolta di generi alimentari ed altro per i 280 cani abbandonati e ospitati presso il Rifugio del Cane Abbandonato della Favorita di Palermo.

Il rifugio è in una situazione economica gravissima a causa dei pochissimi e irrisori fondi che il Comune di Palermo ha stanziato per i cani che ospitiamo.

SIAMO AL COLLLASSO e abbiamo bisogno del Vostro aiuto per riuscire a mantenere uno standard di vita dignitosa ai cani che ospitiamo. Noi volontari facciamo quanto più ci è possibile, li amiamo, li accudiamo 365 giorni all’anno, ma senza soldi e aiuto da parte vostra, il nostro impegno è vano.

Per questo, sabato 7 aprile dalle ore 10 alle ore 18.30 in piazza Unità d’Italia a Palermo, abbiamo organizzato un banchetto dove potrete venire a donare:

·         Croccantini (sia per adulti sia per cuccioli)

·         Scatolette (sia per adulti sia per cuccioli)

·         Medicine (c’è un bisogno urgentissimo di Glucantime per curare i cani con leishmania)

·         Siringhe

·         Antiparassitari

·         Detersivi e disinfettanti

                                                                                                         

Vi preghiamo di partecipare numerosi a questa raccolta: ogni piccolo dono corrisponderà ad un grande atto d’amore.

Al banchetto di raccolta saranno esposte anche le magliette dell’Associazione e altri gadget: il ricavato andrà interamente devoluto all’acquisto di croccantini. Fate girare il più possibile questa mail a tutti i vostri contatti.

Grazie a tutti, buona Pasqua e Bau.

 

I cani e i volontari del Rifugio del Cane Abbandonato della Favorita

Viale Diana, 3 – Palermo

Aperto al pubblico dal lunedì al venerdì dalle 15v alle 18, il sabato e la domenica dalle 10 alle 14.
