  • Description


    The Italian law states that strays must be protected from mistreatment.
    The Italian law provides for due punishment for those who abandon and/or mistreat an animal.
    According to the Italian law City Councils and local health bodies are required to take action in order to protect strays, launch recurrent neutering projects, and take other steps in their favour, such as running or funding public shelters for cats and dogs.
    But there are areas in Italy where this law doesn't seem to apply, because there is no one who respects strays, and many citizens don't even take due care of their own home pets. They prefer to abandon them unneutered on the streets when they are fed up with them. There is no one to enforce animal protection regulations, and there is no one who cares!
    And so pets are abandoned, abused, poisoned, made the target of voluntary tortures and ill-treatments, without anyone lifting a finger. And without public bodies doing anything to prevent this, by enforcing due punishment for those who break the law.
    Italian Southern regions are like hell for strays. In most cities and villages the only hope for strays are a few volunteers of good will. And so, unfortunately, it works in Reggio Calabria.
    Our beautiful city is devastated by so many problems, including a shameful neglect towards strays. Creatures that have no fault other than that of coming into the world, if not that of having to do with people who are the real beasts.
    In a city where every dumpster is a feline colony, one day a woman decided to say ENOUGH!
    Her name is Daniela, and since that day, more than 20 years ago, she has changed what was a passion and an outburst of the heart into a full-time volunteer work round the clock!
    Rushing to every call, rescuing, helping, looking after, caring, and unfortunately accompanying many little friends on the last journey.
    For love, and for love only, Daniela has founded a charity organisation and has opened this place, a private shelter for abandoned felines right next to her home, where she welcomes any creature that needs her help.
    Like an angel in the midst of heaps of garbage and traffic jams, she works 18-20 hours a day in her shelter, all year round, cleaning the place over and over again to keep it spotless, and caring for their kitties, with the only help of husband Eric, and the only mission to save these little ones from death, give them visibility and find them a real home with a caring foster family.
