Fasano is a town located in Puglia, Italy, a region that is fast becoming a popular destination for the rich and famous.
While Fasano hosted Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s wedding and is frequented by the likes of Helen Mirren, Meryl Streep and Mickey Rourke, this town holds a dark secret.
In 2016, candidate Francesco Zaccaria, made a promise to the homeless animals and the community of Fasano, to build a new animal shelter. He is now “Mayor” Francesco Zaccaria, and not only has he failed to keep his promise, he has been holding 150 innocent dogs hostage for 18 months, in a substandard shelter that offers no protection from the scorching heat or the freezing winter temperatures.
After Mayor Zaccaria took office, his Health Department declared that the shelter was not up to code. He then confiscated the volunteers’ food storage container and sequestered the shelter so that the 150 dogs could not leave and no new animals could be accepted in.
Even though money is available for a new shelter, the Mayor continues to force these poor dogs to live without proper shelter and robbing them of a chance at a new home. These 150 dog hostages and the abandoned animals of Fasano need your help!
Please join Animal House International and I to insist that the Mayor fulfill his campaign promise to build a new animal shelter immediately.
When you sign the petition, an email will be sent to the mayor and regional president, so please also include a polite personal comment.
Thanks as always for being the voice for the voiceless and thank you Rebecca Rodriguez of Animal House International for their video footage.
