PETS IN ITALY IS PROUD TO SUPPORT the non profit animal rescue association Lo Scudo di Pan (Pan’s Shield). If you can spare anything at all then please donate by Paypal. They have huge problems raising enough money to keep going. (Scroll down to end.)
A PENNY TO DEFEND THE WEAKEST
Lo Scudo di Pan is a non-profit association established in 2006 to defend animals in need. For us, every animal rescued from the streets or from mistreatment is a great victory and spurs us on to continue our quest, whatever the difficulties. We receive no grants or aid from public funds; to feed and look after the animals in our care we rely on the dedication of volunteer members and the generosity of the people who support our cause.
ONE BIG FAMILY
Every day, Lo Scudo di Pan comes across emergencies of all types: animals run over and injured on the road, shot by careless hunters, abandoned with serious illnesses and in a dreadful state, mistreated and kept chained up, entire litters abandoned with no sustinence by uncaring owners… Often we can save them and manage to get them adopted by a loving family. Sometimes they die, despite all we can do. Sometimes they survive but are so traumatised that they cannot be adopted and so have to stay with us. Lo Scudo di Pan is one big family, in which the animals are known and cared for as individuals. All our guests have tales to tell of abandonment or mistreatment, many of them have serious health problems and are in need of constant care.
CATS: There are many cats in our care, both adults and kittens in need of good homes; we have also rescued animals suffering from FIV/FELV (feline AIDS) which are kept in a separate compound.
DOGS: Lo Scudo di Pan provides a refuge for many dogs, some of which are paralysed in their hind quarters but are still able to get around thanks to “dog wheelchairs" specially made for them. In fact, our mascot is a happy little terrier, Flippo Lippo, with his own “wheels".
A PENNY FOR THE REFUGE
For years we have welcomed animals in the direst need with open arms but now the small refuge in our own home, in which we care for more than 90 animals, has become inadequate due to lack of space and we are unable to accept any more … However, we have a dream: to move to a site well away from the built-up area, where we can take in a greater number of animals in a space better suited to them, where we can install a clinic to carry out veterinary procedures, a kitchen to prepare food, a laundry room… in fact, everything necessary to ensure the best in hygiene and functionality, a place where our many friends can live a happy and secure life. Help us to realise our dream of a new refuge for Lo Scudo di Pan and to promote this appeal to others. Talk to all your friends and acquaintances, promote this quest to meet the need for a suitable place to save and restore dignity to a large number of animals, whose fate can be drastically improved thanks to your help. Just as the ocean is made up of many drops of water, so even a small donation can help to establish the refuge. With deepest gratitude from Lo Scudo di Pan.
If you would like to make a donation we would be deeply grateful.
