Dino has landed!

I am very happy to report that Dino has arrived! He made it all the way from Southern Italy to California! (Notice his tail mid-wag!) Thank you again to everybody who contributed towards Dino's rescue. We didn't quite make our fundraising goal, but we got close enough to put the rest on our creaking credit card! When we started this campaign, we put Dino's future in the hands of fate. We were due to leave Southern Italy and we had been unable to find Dino a home for five months. We couldn't leave him behind, but we also knew that we couldn't fund Dino's move to the States by ourselves. It was a last minute plan to send his story out there and see what came back. Owing to the help and incredible generosity of a community of animal-lovers online, we have finally found a happy ending to Dino's story. Thank you so much!

We fly back to the States tomorrow and Dino is booked to join us on Monday. Thank you so much to everybody who has contributed towards making Dino's journey possible. We are still open for donations and we are enormously appreciative of all the help we have received in our mission to rescue Dino. We couldn't have done it without you! More updates soon...

Two weeks and counting!

Dino is due to fly to his new life in the States in approximately two weeks! If we can make our fundraising goal, everybody who donates will receive a photo of Dino under the Hollywood sign...

It is hard to imagine that this little boy was doomed to spend the rest of his life in a cage. Thank you to everybody who is making Dino's freedom possible!
