A rescue centre abroad

 

This year I received a very generous christmas gift, tickets for a holiday to provide me with a (needed) break from our centres problems. It was designed to take me as far away as possible from the heartache and responsibilities of cat rescue, so i would have no choice but to rest.

However, I just couldn't resist paying a visit to a shelter for cats & dogs, when i heard of one.

These companion animals were truly lucky.
Gorgeous kittens were looking up at me from their pen with sleepy eyes, they were so happy to be safe.
Unfortunately there is not enough space & some of the puppies have to stay in small spaces for a time.
You can see my delight in having seen Garfield so happy in his pen, being looked after by caring volunteers.
These cats and dogs are truly the lucky ones. I could not believe that this set up would exist in that part of the world when there are so many feral animals and when I struggle so much in Italy to get people to help the abandoned pets.

 

The animals are all vaccinated, neutered & treated for worms and fleas.
Dogs are lucky enough to find homes occassionally but cats not so much.
Please go onto their website and help them if you can.
They do a marvelous job & I was so happy to find them.

Not enough space in the shelter so these emergency pens have been set up for the many animals coming in on a daily basis.
