of dry food necessary
Because of a lack of kibble, dogs living at the dump eat other dead dogs' bodies...
The situation in the public dump is catastrophic: Ivana only has a few pieces of bread to feed the stray dogs. Starving, the survivors eat their peers' corpses!
We want to help 40 surviving dogs from Ivana's shelter and the dogs from the dump by sending 2400 kilograms of kibble.
An end of the world feeling is flowting amoung the dump.
Skopje's stray dogs, alone and miserable, rush to the rubbish dump in search of a few pieces of food. Unfortunately, they rarely find more than a few crumbs to put fill their stomach. Due to lack of resources, Ivana and the other volunteers at the shelter have only a few pieces of dry bread to bring them from time to time. The pressure of hunger and the survival instinct push dogs to eat the weakest's corpses, those who have not survived hunger or disease ...
The situation is catastrophic. Ivana must attend macabre daily scenes without the opportunity to do more ...
The tourist season is cruel and overwhelms the volunteers: the streets are filled with dead bodies of dogs poisoned by the municipality ... This solution found by the authorities to divert the attention of foreign visitors on the situation of stray dogs in Macedonia reinforces the helplessness of volunteers ...
Unfortunately, dogs have no other means to feed themselves, so they throw themselves on toxic food before succumbing to it in excruciating pain.
We want to help Ivana and her friends by sending them kibble so that the street dogs do not fall into this trap that each year kills thousands of innocent dogs ...
Aware to the situation of stray dogs in Macedonia, Ivana and other volunteers have decided to welcome the poorest home. Most dogs at Ivana's house are dying, sick, or starving when they get there ... and would not have survived the street without their help.
Thanks to their great involvement and generosity, the volunteers manage to heal, reassure and adopt these dogs, which in the past had no chance of a better life.
But these actions have a cost: the veterinary fees, the medicines, the food, the management of daily tasks are financially heavy and Ivana can't buy any more kibble ...
We can take action, we have already booked a truck and pallets, but we have to pay it before July 11th.
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.
Ivana receives donations and gets help to promote dogs for adoption. Unfortunately, the donations being insufficient and especially very random, the volunteers are constantly in the fear of not having the means to look after and feed their dogs ...
A very stressful situation that drives Ivana and her volunteer friends to constantly ask for help on social networks. Online sales, fundraising in the public square, calls for help: today the actions undertaken are not enough anymore.
We are their last hope.
Ivana hosts forty street dogs. As a young mother working full time, she decided not to put aside her love for animals and managed to combine her family life and the shelter.
For this reason, she even moved away from the city, imposing a certain isolation from the world to herself and family, to be able to acquire a larger garden and therefore more dogs.
The group of friends is organized, dedicated and extremely invested in the fight against stray dogs' misery in Macedonia, these animals are rejected and daily victims of free violence ...
Their fight is ours! We can help them improve the animal condition by sending them kibble!
With an estimated population of 1 million street dogs, Macedonia regularly carries out mass extermination campaigns aimed at "cleaning the streets", at least temporarily. The last nationwide campaign in 2017 was particularly violent and led to numerous protests, including international ones. The most common method remains poisoning, which leads to slow agony (sometimes several days) for the affected dogs.
Beyond national measures, the treatment of dogs on a smaller scale also remains very harsh. Many municipalities practice poisoning on their own initiative, and the inhabitants themselves are often hostile to street dogs. Carried out with impunity, acts of cruelty perpetrated by individuals are numerous (acts of torture, strangulation, wild abandonment, etc.) and unpunished.
This collection is organized by Civic Initiative Kane Korzo Nadez Skopje, Ivana is an active member. The 2400 kg of kibble collected will be delivered to Ivana in Macedonia to feed the 40 dogs she hosts and all the dogs she cares for throughout the city and at the dump.
