ANGEL HELPERS

Our little rescue puppy that Foster-mom Brandy is taking care of very well. Coco has a problem with her stools: loose. In the last blog entry about Coco, you could read that Jackie took her to the vet and got Coco vaccinated, changed diet etc. This morning I got an email from Brandy saying that the stools were loose and now she could see some blood. She wondered if it could be worms? I saw when Coco got de wormed and I also thought that she had been de wormed a second time. I said I couldn't believe that but please get to the ER quick. Wonderful Brandy did! ER said it was worms and didn't charge! They needed a stool sample tomorrow.

Brandy, wonderful foster-mom--and the ER vet at Villa Felice--thank you two fantastic people.

I got an e mail from a woman named Laura who told me that the store sold out a lot of dog things for 50 cent. At the same moment my husband was at the store so I called him and told him the great news. He bought several bags of shampoo, brushes, etc (this is only from one bag)

Thank you so much for that e mail--you helped AWL save a lot of money!


You remember Mario that lived around the gas station and loved his coffee bar woman that he always escorted home after her shift. This gas station is out in the middle of no-where, and next to the highway. Jackie and I went there and picked Mario up and took him to LegaProAnimale for castration. The coffee lady didn't want him to get adopted away since she loved him so dearly, and he loved his gas station. We all love Mario, such a friendly and sweet boy.

At the vet clinic we get to know he has a microchip! I found out what dog catcher area he was registered in and Isabelle called. There is an owner who has sent in a missing dog paper!

The interesting part is that there was no phone number, only an address. Of course this is happening in the holiday season when the clinic is being closed a couple of days....poor Mario is in limb, in a kennel waiting. Tomorrow hopefully we can find out who is his owner and do they want him back??

COCOS FIRST CHRISTMAS

Miss Coco is not hanging in the tree!
Remember Coco that was found in a box 5 weeks old outside the shelter. One volunteer rescued her from cold nights on concrete floor and the little one had bad diarrhea. She is in a warm foster home together with a cat and one dog. Coco is doing great!
Yesterday she got her first vaccination.
Coco want to thank you for your donations so she can visit the vet and also get her vaccinations!
AWL Jackie and Brandy, thank you for your Angel hearts!

MARIO GOT AN OWNER OR NOT?

Mario is a wonderful stray that takes care off the gas station and coffee bar lady. He walks her home after her hours and then returns to "where ever" he sleeps.
He also looked after Benjamin, Lucy and Abby. The same gas station.
AWL decided that we would spay him (and then return him) and today Jackie and I picked him up. We felt bad since we think he has never been in a car, never a leach and being lifted and put into a car...to a clinic....not knowing what's happening!

It was hectic today at LegaPro but it is very interesting watching animals and their owner(s)

Dr Lorenzo checked Mario, and Mario was such a good boy. We are amazed how they trust us. But to our surprise he had a microchip! The owner has to be found they cannot spay him before that. The coffee lady told us he's been keeping her company for 5 years....

Well, Mario is still at the clinic and we are waiting by the phone...what will that number tell us?

HOSPICE FOR SQUARE PANTS

This rescue dog is one of my favorites at the shelter, and he is 10 years-old. I named him square pants since he looks very rectangular. He is having problem walking since he has arthritis. Every day and night he lays on cold wet concrete. I want to rescue him from that shelter.
With 17 dogs in my house I have no possibility to bring him home. Its a shame since he wont take much room, and ask for much. He want a warm floor and some painkillers.
We wish we had our hospice and we would look after him until his time would be over here. We want to give him pleasure and peace.
It was sweet to see him today laying in the sun. But the shelter is in a hurry to clean all the cages so the dogs get 5 minutes off freedom each day.

Please help us by donating to SquarePants future!

BELLA IS STILL UNDERWEIGHT

Our Bella from earlier blogs is still not putting on weight. She is still a walking skeleton, and it worries us since she is getting fed three times a day by her foster mother.


We took her this morning to Dr Damiani to have her spayed, but she was still underweight --- the doctor and we agreed that we have to figure out why and get her in better shape before doing the surgery.


Dr Damiani examined Bella and she laid totally still the whole time. She was fantastic. Her foster mother had to dry her mouth since Bella drooled so much from being stressed.


Dr Damiani is a great veterinarian. He gives us a lot of time and educates us at the same time. Every time we learn something new and our work feels very rewarded from him. Can you imagine that today he thanked us for doing so much for the Neapolitan strays?


My heart felt warm and we get inspiration to keep going. On top of everything he is keeping his costs low for our Foundation and NFOA. --I know since we have been working with other veterinarians here.--


With Bella he did a rectal examination and found out she is eating a lot of gravel!!! A blood test was being sent away-- for many internal answers we hope for. We really want to know what is wrong with our girl Bella.


She is only 3 years old, blind in her left eye and has been abused by people before. She is so worthy a good and calm life, and a nutritional correct life.


Before leaving, Dr Damiani came out with a carton of dog food for us, as a gift. What an Amore veterinarian, AWL is so grateful for the person he is!


And Bella was so scared that she turned out to be so brave on the examine table, it was amazing to see her. Bella, we are doing everything so you can feel better and get healthy!

WALKING ALONE LOOKING FOR A HOME

Adoption or Foster? Please don't let your heart close ...give her a warm Christmas.
Found on base, no microchip, no collar....she is right now together with other dogs, and she is so fantastic towards them, and children. She is a lucky catch. One off our volunteers got her right now and tells us she is fantastic.

They named her M'lann and tells us that she has a very sweet disposition and think she is about 6 or 7 years old.

She has been a mother before. She looks relatively healthy and our volunteer took her to the vet this morning. This is a fantastic Amore dog, gentle and good with other dogs and children. What a girl.
