A Brief Blog Profile: Pets in Italy

by Thomas Hynes


Despite the name, Pets in Italy is for any pet owner living in any country. The blog has two basic missions. The first is to document the experience of having pets in foreign countries. After all, pet culture is not necessarily a part of every culture. The second mission of the site is to help homeless animals in Italy. So in a way, this blog is both a labor of love as well as a labor for love.

Pets in Italy spends a fair amount of time looking for homes for animals in need. And there are a lot of them out there. Not just dogs. This site includes stories about cats and horses and just about everything else you could think of that might need a home. But the blog is really so much more than that.

The site also discusses such issues as  the nature of having a hunting dog as a pet. Here , you can read about how things can get messy when one of those dogs gives into their instincts. You can also read about the recent changes to the quarantine laws in the UK or how the author and her husband decided to name a pigeon. This blog is a great resource, as this link to vets who speak English will attest. It's helpful and it's informative. It also happens to be their story.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
