We need your help to care for these adorable little puppies, which were abandoned in our garden in Sicily when they were just a few weeks old. Sadly, this is very common here and unwanted puppies are just thrown away with the rubbish, dumped by heartless people who hope either that they will die out of sight or that they will be taken in by somebody. The authorities can't (or won't) help, and the few dog refuges here are overwhelmed.

We have tried everything to find homes for the pups and luckily one recently flew to Milan to be with his new family! Sadly, nobody has yet come forward to adopt Poppy and Timmy so we are doing our best to look after them. However, the longer they stay, the less likely it will be that they'll be chosen for adoption, especially since the number of abondoned puppies here in Sicily grows every day!

The person who abandoned these dogs clearly didn't have the money to look after them and passed that responsibility on to us! We can't afford to keep them either - but nor do we have the hardness of heart required to turn them out on the street or condemn them to a slow but certain death by insisting the authorities take them away! A visit to our local pound has convinced us that that is not an option we can consider for them.

Please help us to care for Poppy and Timmy and give them a good start in life. We can just about meet the costs of their day-to-day needs such as food, but cannot afford the additional expenses for vaccinations, vet fees and the cost of sterilization, which will be necessary very soon! 

Thank you for your donation, however small. Timmy & Poppy appreciate it, too!
