Welcome to sicilyanimalsupport.info
We have a small number of animals that need loving homes either in Sicily or in the UK.
Every animal under our supervision is provided with a high standard of expert care, looked after by us or loving volunteers with the application of animal welfare our top priority.
Please remember that most animals that come into our hands are obtained from a variety of different backgrounds and may have experienced a range of events during their sensitive development phases. This means that most will need extra special care and attention in their new home. The behaviour of dogs or cats rehomed from rural farming or urban communities in Sicily may be distinctly different to a pet raised in an average family environment in the UK. If you are seriously looking to be the guardian of an extra special pet then please contact us and we will send you full details of how this this process works.
Not everybody that applies may be successful, so please do not be offended if you are not at this time.
It is important to make sure we help you find the ideal pet so we will need to know a great deal about you and the home you are offering.
Not every pet is suitable for every home and we do our best to mix and match for the most positive long term outcome.
Alternatively you could help us by contributing financially or by carrying out fund raising activities for our charity.
It costs several hundreds of pounds, every year for each animal under our care. At present we are doing our utmost to provide the best care within a very tight budget.
We are currently applying for Charity status in the UK to help source further funding outside of our own limited finances.
Any animal homed by us will be spayed (unless there is sufficient reason not to), fully vaccinated as appropriate, microchipped, wormed, groomed and will have received basic training in life skills where suitable.
Where there is a need for a passport this will be organised and completed on behalf of the new guardian as and when required.
'Wolfie' is a more gentle puppy, not as rough and tumble as his brothers. He is one of three remaining survivors from an original litter of ten puppies destined to be drowned. He is ten weeks old now (8/10/18) and was the last of the remaining puppies that allowed us to handle him. He now loves being fussed and loves his food. He is a bit of a wanderer and loves to explore new places ahead of the others. Wolfie would love the 'one to one' contact that a new family would be able to offer. His 'best friend' in the litter was stolen before we collected them and Wolfie clearly missed her for a while. He has now recovered well from the trauma of this experience. Wolfie is attentive, easy to train and sociable with other dogs.
Little Georgie just loves being with us, he needs plenty of attention but is so easily trained, although he worries a lot. He has the best recall out of the three puppies. Georgie understands and responds really well to canine body language and is sociable with other dogs. As with his brothers, there is no sign of aggressive tendencies but Georgie is sensitive and needs a caring and understanding home.
Bobby is a bit of a naughty livewire but underneath his bravado is a very sensitive little puppy, because of this he is a little more vocal. Therefore with training he will make an excellent house dog that will warn off the unwanted. He is pushy with the other dogs but responds very well to training and guidance during human / dog and dog / dog interactions. He loves life and sharing quite moments.
