Lucky Tales Dog Rescue Without Borders
Added 5th February 2011

A volunteer group that saves foreign dogs from abuse is looking for pet lovers who can offer their new charges a happy home. Lucky Tales Dog Rescue based in Walderslade, is trying to raise £1000 to bring back 10 neglected dogs from Sardinia, Italy, in a minibus and members have already raised £200. Families are needed to foster and adopt the animals once they arrive in the UK. The Not-for-profit organisation which hopes to become a charity, consists of nine members, including secretary Julie Bacon. Julie, 57, a carer from Walderslade said "Some of the dogs have been half starved, they have been beaten. They dont ask to be here, its not their fault. These dogs have been through hell but they make the best pets" Founder Marinna Volpi, a civil servant from Walderslade, started the group two years ago after she witnessed the mistreatment of dogs whilst living in Italy. She has already brought back a number of dogs to the UK, including six dogs she keeps as pets. Previous quarantine laws, which prevented dogs entering the UK have been lifted. Pet dogs, cats and ferrets can come to the UK from certain countries under the Pet Travel Scheme as long as they have been vaccinated against rabies. The animals also need a special pet passport. Lucky Tales Dog Rescue is planning fundraisers, including a charity dog walk and car boot sale, which will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
