ASSOCIATION
Lina's animal rescue RS Serbia

Jelena's shelter is out of food, the dogs don't eat every day! 

In Serbia, Jelena's shelter houses 28 dogs, for whom she can no longer get food.

We were at the shelter on April 27th, there was nearly nothing left, the dogs didn't eat anything the day after...

Under rations, dogs are nervous and aggressive, fights break out : the most fragile ones cannot cope with it.

Jelena works 12 hours a day to support the shelter, but without success.

Alone at the shelter, her mother Dragoslava struggles to control the situation: she is exhausted and overwhelmed.

Despite multiple pleas for help, no foundation is getting involved, the situation seems inextricable.

We want to help them by sending 2000kg of kibble as a matter of urgency.

100% transparency guaranteed

 

 

1. The shelter no longer has any kibble, the dogs do not eat every day.... Fights break out between the dogs due to hunger.

The stock sent by the Animal Webaction community in October 2018 got to an end several months ago.  During our visit on April 27th, the kibble stock was held in a few small buckets... The dogs at the shelter were able to eat small amounts that day, but had nothing the one after

 

 

###
The lack of food makes the dogs nervous "They bark more , much more than usual , some of dogs want to have fight with others , especialy those rescued From public shelters where they had to fight for food" says Jelena, President of the association

 

 

Seeing her calls for help remain unsuccessful, Dragoslava tries by all means to make people understand the degree of urgency in which the shelter is right now...

 

 

###
To ensure that no dog gets injured, makeshift separations have been installed, using cardboard boxes, boards and transport cages, but the comfort of the dogs is affected...

 

 

Last October, the Animal Webaction community got together to donate 1400 kg of kibble to the Jelena' s shelter, but this stock got to an end several months ago!

"They struggle constantly to raise funds for food and on several occasions they have had to ration the food to make it last" said Marie, who is trying to help the shelter from England, when she called us for help.


The lack of food makes the dogs nervous, and leads to fights that Jelena and her mother try to prevent as best they can "Some of dogs want to have fight with others , especialy those rescued From public shelters where they had to fight for food" tells us Jelena, President of the association

 

 

 

2. The shelter hosts many sick dogs, the lack of food is even more terrible to endure for them

###
Taken away from dogcatchers, Lucy suffers from stomach problems that cannot be cured: food is a crucial point for her

 

 

###
Thrown out on the street and suffering from dirofilariasis, Čupko was very sick when he joined the shelter. He has heart after-effects and has a poor tolerance for stress: even more than others, Čupko is endangered by the lack of kibble

 

 

###
Affected by bone disease, Lea already has symptoms on her spine and paws: without kibble, she will not be able to cope

 

 

###
Delilah is the only female of a litter of several puppies thrown over the shelter gates at only a few weeks old. Fed on a bottle for weeks to survive, Delilah is the thinest of the group today

 

 

###
Taken from the pound, Leo suffers from heavy damages from which he will never be able to recover: many of his teeth have been broken, various diseases have affected his lungs and heart. Leo suffers from tachycardia and respiratory problems at the slightest stress....

 

 

###
Affected by heartworm disease, Mercy was still sick when he arrived at the shelter: months of treatment were needed. Healed only since April, he remains fragile

 

###
With pulmonary after-effects resulting from a car accident, Kanu has also suffered from a corona virus and various parasitic diseases that leave him very fragile

 

Jelena's shelter can only accommodate very few dogs, which is why it only caters for the most vulnerable, whose chances of survival on the street or in impoundments are close to zero.

One third of the shelter's residents suffer from chronic diseases, unhealed conditions, or irreversible damage due to previous traumas. Malnutrition, but also the great stress caused by the lack of kibble, is already putting them at risk.

 

3. Due to lack of resources, boarding hasn't been paid for several months: 18 dogs are at risk of ending up on the street

 

With 18 dogs placed in boarding, due to a lack of space and infrastructure at the shelter, the monthly costs are unsustainable for Jelena and Dragoslava alone

 

 

Darcy lived in an abandoned house with her litter of 8 puppies, before being threatened by the dogcatchers. Jelena rescued them and took them to the shelter, but they are now too big to stay there. Darcy and the 6 puppies that have not been adopted must therefore be housed in boarding facilities

 

 

Bruce, Alistair, Ash, Nora, Mira, Madelyn: Darcy's puppies have grown up well, and can't be hosted in any way at the shelter. They have only known the shelter or boarding, and would not be able to survive on the street

 

 

Found in the snow at only 2 months with his brother Daron, Darshan was taken in by Jelena. He spent his first few months at the shelter, but became too big and had to be placed in boarding

 

 

About 10 years old, Crni was abandoned by his former owner and put out on the street, left completly desoriented. Jelena has put him in boarding, but cannot take him to the shelter

 

 

Pris en charge par Jelena lorsqu'il était encore très jeune, Viktor a été adopté, puis ramené au refuge quelques mois plus tard... Faute de place, Jelena est contrainte de le mettre en pension

 

 

Found in the snow at only 2 months with his brother Darshan, Daron was taken in by Jelena. He spent his first few months at the shelter, but became too big and had to be placed in boarding facilities

 

Because the space at the shelter is too limited, and the fences do not allow large dogs to be safely housed, Jelena has no choice but to pay pensions for 18 other dogs under her protection.

This represents an enormous budget, which her resources do not allow her to honour: the pension has not been paid for several months, Jelena must honour her debt under penalty of seeing these dogs put back on the street.

Her dilemma is extremely cruel: the few bags of kibble she manages to buy in a few drops are taking her further away from paying off her debt every day...

 

 

4. Running water is contaminated throughout the city and is no longer drinkable: 60 litres must be purchased every day!

###
Dozens of bottles must be bought and handled every day, with an invoice of 600€ each month, that is 4 times Jelena's salary!!!!

 

Whenever possible, Jelena and Dragoslava try to collect rainwater, but this is only rarely possible...

 

In recent months, running water has been declared contaminated throughout the city, forcing its inhabitants to get bottled water to meet their needs.

A major change for the shelter, which uses 60 litres of drinking water every day outside of the hot season, for a monthly budget of 600€ for this alone.

 

 

5. To meet the expenses, Jelena works 12 hours a day, but she only earns 150€ a month...

 

Despite a higher education as a chemist, Jelena spent nearly 4 years at the shelter night and day, trying to sell soaps made by her to keep the shelter alive.

But with nearly 50 dogs in charge of the association, including about twenty in boarding school, and about ten with chronic veterinary expenses, the costs have become too high.

"I could not sell enough soaps for that so I decided to find job.  My salary Is not big , just 150€ for month .... That came with lot of changes: I work From 10 to 22h every day - on friday and saturday until midnight. I can't Help mom as much with the remain time. I go to shelter after work with wish to Help her but i only end up sleeping because I am tired" Jelena says with regret.

 

 

 

6. In Jelena's absence, her mother Dragoslava has to take care of the shelter. Physically exhausted, she is also extremely anxious due to a lack of kibble

Dragoslava, Jelena's mother, now takes over most of the daily work in the shelter on her own

 

Because it is impossible for Jelena to hire anyone in the shelter, and no volunteers are involved, Dragoslava is now forced to replace her at the shelter.

Maintenance, dog care, supervision to avoid fights etc.... Dragoslava works all day at the shelter, and also spends most of her nights there. "It's hard for her. She sleep just 3-4 daily , most of things are on Her backs.  She Is tired . She also has troubles with spine and work alone in shelter does not help her" Jelena tells us sadly.

 

 

7. Their calls for help remain unanswered, Jelena and Dragoslava are desperate

 

Online collections do not work, and SOS sent to foreign associations have had little impact: only two small foreign associations provide support. But their resources are limited, and so is the help they are able to provide for kibble.

"I did what I could , I have sent thousands of e mails, beging for help, any help. I did not had success with online pages, with organisations around world, with searching help in Serbia. There was allways No as answer. I tried anything, gave my money for my own medical treatment to reduce little but debt, I tried to sell some of my personal things, like clothes, but nothing was enough" Jelena said some time ago, running on empty.

 

 

8. If we don't reach the target, dogs won't receive any food

A failed collection on Animal Webaction

 

 

We can come into action, we have already booked a truck and pallets, but we have to pay it before May 12th.

If the collection fails, we will not be able to pay, the departure of the truck will be cancelled and none of the collected kibbles will be delivered...

If the collection fails, we will refund all donors.

 

 

9. Blocked rooms, fences to be rebuilt: to avoid boarding costs, many works would be necessary at the shelter, but cannot be financed

###
Set up in a run down house, the shelter has only a very limited living space: work would be necessary to rehabilitate the rooms that cannot be used, but cannot be undertaken due to lack of resources

 

 

###
Bare ground, very low fences: the refuge can only accommodate small dogs, both to limit the risks associated with promiscuity, and runaways (they easily jump over the fence)

 

The dogs of the shelter are housed on a partially restored property: half of the house is still unhealthy, and cannot be renovated due to lack of resources.

For the same reason, the external fence cannot be redone, and represents too much of a risk for large dogs, who can easily jump over it.

The only way to protect the dogs is therefore to place them in boarding, while waiting to carry out work or find another site: again a vicious circle and a terrible dilemma for Jelena and her mother.

 

 

10. Jelena's neighbours can't stand the shelter: they've already hurt several dogs! Dragoslava remains there at all times to ensure their protection

Caught by someone through the fence, Mo was beaten violently on the head. Fortunately, she was rushed to the vet by Jelena and recovered from her aggression

 

Mickey had his leg cut through the wire: care and treatments allowed him to heal, but his aggression was very worrying for Jelena

 

$$$
Sheba died after eating poisoned food in the shelter yard. Jelena didn't see her immediately, and wasn't able save her

 

The house occupied by the dogs is located in a residential area, very close to the other houses. The neighbours consider the shelter as a nuisance, and want to make Jelena leave.

Several dogs were attacked and injured through the gate, one of them died after eating poisoned food. Since then, Jelena and her mother have taken turns to ensure a permanent presence at the shelter, and prevent further incidents.

 

11. We want to help them get through it 

###
Zujka lived on the street and had already been met by Jelena, who was waiting to gather her. She was captured by the dogcatchers and thrown into the pound, from where Jelena took her out

 

###
Droped off with his 4 brothers and sisters outside the shelter shortly after his birth, Zack is 10 months old. Fed by Jelena with a bottle for weeks after his arrival, he needs large quantities of kibble

 

###
Like the other puppies of his litter, Samson was thrown over the shelter gate when he was only a few weeks old, and is only 10 months old by now

 

###
Threatened with euthanasia while living on the street, Mvrica was sheltered several years ago, and is entirely dependent on Jelena

 

###
Fed on the street for months by Jelena, Minnie was too scared to get caught. Jelena finally managed to get her one winter morning, while Minnie tried in vain to warm up the litter she had had shortly before

 

###
Merlin was born at the shelter by surprise: his mother Sara had been rescued a few days earlier by Jelena after being hit by a car. Paralyzed, Sara died some time later of distemper, leaving Merlin and his brother Lucky behind her

 

###
Found on the street when she was just a puppy, Luna was first placed in boarding, before being integrated into the shelter

 

###
Lucky was born at the shelter by surprise: his mother Sara had been rescued a few days earlier by Jelena after being hit by a car. Paralyzed, Sara died some time later of distemper, leaving Lucky and his brother Merlin behind her

 

###
Rescued when he was just a tiny puppy, Hero has been at the shelter for nearly 3 years

 

###
Thrown over the gates of the shelter when he was only a few weeks old, Kain, has been living there with his brothers and sisters for several months

 

 

###
Belko was saved from euthanasia at the municipal pound. He was heavily abused and left with after-effects. At the shelter for several months, he remains extremely fearful and cannot be adopted

 

12. Jelena rhythms her whole life for the shelter

###
Jelena along with Luna

 

For 4 years, Jelena invested herself body and soul in her association, created in Lina's honour: a street dog rescued by Jelena, who died shortly afterwards.

Forced to accept a full-time job a few months ago for the good of the dogs, she is constantly torn between her professional obligations and those of the shelter, and has only a very limited personal life: "Dogs now have just mom ,but I hope that in some near future that will change , I miss them and I know that shelter need one more person . Mom can't do all alone. I won't have kids or have need for anything like that , dogs are my kids so investing in their future sound good."

 

 

13. In Serbia, 100,000 street dogs are hunted down by dogcatchers to be killed or trapped in mouroirs pounds

 

It is estimated that Serbia has about 100,000 stray dogs. Private companies were commissioned in 2012 to capture these dogs: their dogcatchers (the name given to the employees responsible for the capture) have been operating throughout the country since then.

Receiving bonuses for each dog captured, dogcatchers hunt dogs relentlessly, and use extremely violent capture techniques. Many dogs are killed, the others end up crammed into mouroir pounds, without care or food.

Volunteers believe that their actions, in addition to being cruel, do not have a beneficial impact on the volume of stray dogs in the country. Worse still, they greatly undermine the beneficial actions that have existed until now: the subsidies allocated since 2007 as part of a vast national sterilization program have been drastically cut, despite encouraging results when they were carried out....

 

 

14. What will the 2000 kg collectes be used for ? 

This collection is organized for the association Lina's animal rescue. The 2000 kg of food collected will be delivered to Jelena and her mother Dragoslava to feed the 28 dogs hosted at the shelter.
