Dear members,

Marilena Squillaro, 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:
