Also AWL want to thank old "animal friends" Jeanette, and her husband Waldemar --with their company Dreamlight AB --for their donation so we can keep up our work with the medical treatment to our fantastic strays.

AWL are on their way for a small Mission today. 20 people walking dogs in the "500 dog shelter" And we also think there will be a TV recording and interview that will learn more about AWL work.
Keep your fingers crossed.....

There are so many I want to thank and I am so afraid to forget someone. Please forgive me if I do.
Thank you everyone that made the dog walk possible and into a positive chaotic success. Americans, Brits, Germans and even one more Swede helped out. It was a chaotic, wonderful day!
All the 70 volunteers that walked in the heat and gave the dogs something to remember while laying in their cages. AWL also wants to thank St Franscesco who let us "invade" their shelter and with a lot of patience for us roaming around. To the persons who brought in the sick cat that laid injured outside on a street, so the veterinarian -- located in the shelter-- could put in an IV and examine the little one, thank you for your kindness.
Vania, Keegan, Bruce and Dennis (and Rosa's spirit) my top team, thank you for helping to spread the word, and for helping our new volunteers. It's not easy being new in something that is very different from "back home".
We donated around 30 bags of dogfood to the shelter, thank you all for helping with this.
And all the treats, and petsmart balls and frisbees and collars (Eric) and blankets (Cindy).
Gennifer and Tim's beloved pet, Charlote's things. Her spirit lives on with her things' new users.
So many wonderful hearts, all at the same time.
Money donations; Lisa Tullis, Keegan Kasten, Bruce Armond, Eric Wooley, Lynn Woodalls, Tracey Kleber, Cheryl Kelman, Todd Mercer, Tamara Hampikian, Patricia Hoskins, Paola Maria Gaetano, Traci Van Field, China Plauto, Bella Appelblom, Mitra Talarman, Ulla Seidel, A wonderful couple from Cuma.
Chans Organization donations from their members, thank you so much.
Thanks to Jackie who informed Anna on the base about us, Anna made sure that AWL could get 50 boxes of "dog hamburger food" that we donated to Shelter Franscesco.
For the drinks and fruit thank you Mia, and Vania brought ice, and Jackie plastic cups. Team work!
And Lisa at Panorama, for shining a light on our work.

We have paid, me and my husband, 700 euro for his treatment and lodging. And then the trip for him is not included. This is one reason why Sweden gets a lot of sickness and problem dogs since adopting a healthy dog is expensive and no organization can afford to spend up to 1000 euro per dog on many cases.
Today, me and my children picked him up and he was so sweet in the car, sitting looking out through the back windows. He was a good gentleman when walking into my yard and 6 dogs greeted him sniffing him very carefully and he stood absolutely still and wagged his tail.
Right now he is outside laying in his first grass ever, together with his former "terrible shelter" friends wondering...what is this green stuff?
