The trust “Fondazione Gioia e Romeo ONLUS“ is a non-profit organisation founded in 2014 and operational since September 2016 in order to support our closest animal species: the dog. It is a registered charity in the local legal registry at 390 on 18/12/2015.
After many years of difficulties and complications with planning permission, eventually our vision has become real. Nothing comparable to standard and usual kennels with huge impersonal and cold sheds: in fact our structure fits harmoniously in the surrounding landscape and guaranties to each “four pawed” guest a welcoming and comfortable homelike site during its stay.
The advanced idea of our premises foresees a major cultural innovation, from a labelled structure such as “dogs discharge area” into a public fenced park area, opened to its neighbourhood, in order to let privately owned dogs socialize with rescued ones.
Therefore our premises are not only confined to refugee puppies, but it is inspired by the following principle:
Among our priorities we wish to reduce the, unfortunately still existent, clash between a true dog´s need and what it is provided with. Therefore we focus on a zoo-anthropological knowledge, managed by qualified and trained staff, aiming to fulfil these goals.
