*UPDATE: Very happy to report that the situation was resolved and all the animals are safe and back in the UK!*

I have been contacted by Sarah in Abruzzo who for personal reasons has to return to the UK by 20 January. She is looking to rehome 4 rescue dogs and 2 rescue cats.  The dogs have been living as part of the family for several years, the cats came as kittens and are a year old.

All of them (cats and dogs)  are castrated, vaccinated, chipped and have European passports. (NOTE: For some reason these photos are showing upside down on ipads and iphones but fine on desktop. I have tried to fix it but can’t so am publishing them anyway, don’t let it put you off!)



PONCHO: 7 year-old mixed breed, found abandoned in freezing weather starving having been cut down from a wire.





Marley needs a home


MARLEY: 5 year-old mixed breed dog found starving. He does not like black dogs and will bite them.





chinhuahua Burtie


BURTIE: 4 year-old Chihuahua, dumped at Sarah’s feet by feral mother who then ran off. Born with only three working legs. Big character. Probably best homed alone as he doesn’t like other dogs but is fine with cats.






SHAKESPEARE: 3 year-old Golden Retriever thrown from a vehicle in the middle of nowhere, had broken ribs and was starving. He had terrible trust issues leading Sarah to believe he was abused. He is now a loyal and loving dog but is not good with children.








PUSHKIN and BUDDHA, one year-old brother and sister cats hand reared from 10 days old when their mother died. Friendly, affectionate, good with dogs, need to be homed together if possible.

Home Urgently Needed for Little Cat

I got this email from Anna in Greece, She can bring Dusty to Italy in October.

Dusty "Dusty is only 5 months old and I found him walking by the Avenue on 11/7/2011. He was in a bad condition and we did not know if he was going to make it as he was sick and almost blind from both eyes.. Now, he is FINE, healthy, full of energy and love for humans. Unfortunately, he lives in a cell at the Vet for the past 2 months, and we are really hoping for a good adoption by nice people.. He is in Greece now but he can travel everywhere if he finds his forever family- he will be sterilized and with micro-chip). Please call me if you are interested 0030 6948 723 021, Anna.."

Can anyone out there help?
