It’s always nice when you can do good for the animals to help volunteers like them when I see them from the Amici del Can Fiorenzuola Association. I personally adopted my dog at the Genoa Canal, so I know the work behind this team of volunteers to relocate from the Canal residence to find a family that can look after the dog. “
