By working with a network of volunteers, foster caregivers, veterinarians, kennels and shelters, we rescue these animals and provide them with care and temporary homes until they are adopted into their permanent homes.
Our purpose is to rescue, foster, care for and adopt these homeless animals into permanent homes. We work on a small-scale basis by rescuing 6-12 animals at a time; then when these animals are adopted, we will rescue another 6-12 and we will continue this rescue activity on an ongoing basis.

This non profit was formed in honour of my little dog, Cioccolata. After Cioccolata died, I visited the kennels to look for another dog. Unfortunately, the kennels in Italy are overcrowded and after I saw the pessimistic conditions I felt the need to save not just one dog but many. Adoption weekends are successful in America and I wanted to bring the concept here. I believe that no animal should suffer and after I told other animal lovers about the weekend adoption concept, we created AbbracciamiAdottami. It is easier for me to return to America where I can speak my mother tongue but I feel the animals here need more help so I am staying to see what I can do to help them.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
