EXTREMELY URGENT APPEAL: 6 ANIMALS TO REHOME BY JAN 20, 2016

*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!)

Mini Pinscher Puppies – URGENT

I've just had this appeal through for two 35 day old mini pinscher puppies in Livorno, Tuscany. They have a rare neurological disease known as hypomyelination or Shaky Puppy syndrome and their prognosis is, according to vets, impossible to predict. They could improve, get worse or even die. They shake all the time except when they are sleeping.

They need an urgent home or foster home by the end of the month or they are going to be put to sleep. They can be rehomed separately if necessary and can be transported to another part of Italy as long as they are fit enough to travel.

Please contact gabriellapaggi@gmail.com if you can help.
