[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”954″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]The animals will come to AbbracciamiAdottami from Italy – some from kennels with 600 – 800 dogs, others from shelters where they lived their entire lives in cages; sometimes without adequate food, water or without being able to leave the cage other than for an occasional cleaning. Others may come from the streets where they didn’t find food everyday. Perhaps they were dumped there when their families went on vacation or when they became old or sick. What they had in common is all were homeless. But once with us, they receive everything they need; physically, emotionally and psychologically to enjoy life.

In the beginning, we will use foster homes to take care for our animals. When funding permits, we will purchase rural property in Rome. This property will have enough outdoor space for the animals to enjoy their time outdoors and sufficient indoor space for caring for the animals’ sleeping needs.  Caregivers will be on the property to take care of the animals 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

We will also have a veterinary clinic and a veterinarian will assist us. The older animals or special-needs animals that are not adoptable will spend the rest of their lives with us in a peaceful situation – not behind bars like some of their unlucky counterparts. Because of your help, we will have saved them and with your continuing support we will be able to save more.

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. — Mark Twain
