The animal shelter in via del Termine between Florence and Sesto Fiorentino will close its doors on December 31.

 

Having housed abandoned animals for decades, the shelter’s volunteers are focusing their final days on finding loving owners for the remaining 50-plus dogs and cats. Those unable to adopt can take part in the distance adoption program. Most of the remaining animals are senior dogs, which make loving pets given that they are already trained and do not require too much exercise.

 

 

 

 

The shelter is also appealing for assistance as the winter approaches. Blankets, towels, food and donations to assist with veterinary bills are gratefully received.

 

For more information, contact Caroline Burke 333 3064831.
