Last Thursday, Rome lost a true friend of animals when Andreina Andreotti of Lega del cane, a shelter north of Rome, was killed in an auto accident. Torre Argentina has been providing emergency food and is looking for someone to take over. Friends of Roman Cats is collecting funds for the effort. FORC’s President, Susan, is in Rome and will personally deliver any gifts received before she returns to the US on May 1.

If you’re interested in helping, please send your tax-deductible donation to FORC, PO Box 12571, San Francisco CA 94112. Write “Lega del cane” in the memo line. 100% of your gift will be donated for this purpose. Mille grazie.
