Our response to the ongoing Covid-19 Situation

We do hope all of our supporters and amazing people helping animals in Sicily and the UK are keeping well and safe as Covid still lingers. 

We are reducing our contact with others as best we can as we move on past the pandemic. We are now working from Sicily and will be looking to renovate our pet holding building as soon as we have sufficient funds. 

If you would like to help donate so we can support others then please visit our fund's page.

Help us to help others.

'Let us Unite in Care and Compassion'  

As a not-for-profit organisation we do not want to recreate the wheel. What we want to do, is help. Help the animals and help others to help animals. That is why we want to unite with as many people and organisations as we can. That is why we want to educate, provide health care, provide funds, provide employment, listen, understand, and most importantly take action.


If you are reading this then we assume you care about animals and share our compassion for them, so thank you for visiting. We are UK-based, and set up to provide help and support for all animals. Operating in Sicily and the UK. Our first aim is not to bring more animals into the UK but develop a robust support network internationally, involving people with a range of skills, knowledge, and compassion who can help us to help people help animals in Sicily and in the UK.



Without compassion there will never be change. Without compassion there can be no care. Without compassion there can be no concern for the welfare of others. If you possess compassion then help us to help others that care and the animals who need care. Help us to make change.


We cannot be effective on our own. We cannot bring about sustained change on our own. We can learn from others. Others can learn from us. Those that need to change, need to understand the reasons why. By being united we can be stronger and more effective, unite with us and let's make positive change happen.


To provide immediate care is to provide what is necessary. What is necessary is health, welfare, owner support and protection for animals. To provide ongoing care includes these and a lot more, including guidance, education, vigilance, employment, funding,  legislation and policing. Help us provide the care that is needed now and for the future.

The Role of our Charity Trusties

As a charity, we want to continue to follow good practices and run our charity effectively, avoid pitfalls and adhere to legal duties. As part of this process, we invited selected people to join us as Charity Trustees, those who we feel can bring a wealth of skills, knowledge, and enthusiasm to the charity in addition to supporting an effective decision-making process, provide guidance, and organisational leadership. We will be applying to change our status to a charity in 2022.
