Donate with trust: Animal Webaction has been on site and checked the truthfulness of everything presented in the campaign.

1. In Serbia, Svetlana is running out of kibble to feed the 126 dogs at her shelter. They will starve, unless someone intervenes!


"Currently, there are 126 dogs in the shelter. Many of them are old or sick or disabled, some have life-threatening diseases. Over the past few months, we had to rescue many puppies, and they all came with canine distemper...

The situation is very difficult for us, we already have such a large number of dogs to feed and take care of. They are counting on us to provide for them, but the food situation is really uncertain, and I worry about it every day. I currently have three bags of food left, which is only enough for the next two days...

I'm always worried about food. I feel sad, worried, and powerless. At the moment I really don’t see any more options or any way to get more dog food... A lack of kibble could be fatal to the dogs, given how vulnerable they are. We need help."

2. Without kibble, Svetlana won't be able to rescue more dogs from the streets, where they are exposed to life-threatening danger...


"Strays and abandoned dogs wander the streets in desperation and hunger... they are practically sentenced to death, be it by illness, exhaustion, traffic accidents or ill treatment by people. They are in constant danger.

If I don't find more kibble, I will have to stop rescuing dogs from the street... This is especially critical now during summer, as in addition to the usual risks, street dogs also suffer from heatstroke and dehydration, many of them are in very poor condition. 

I would be extremely disappointed in myself if I was unable to provide dogs in distress with a safe shelter and food. Everyone will suffer as a result of a lack of kibble."

3. Three broken legs, shot with a rifle... Balu has experienced terrible trauma at a young age. Disabled and fragile, he will not survive without kibble.


"Balu is a two-year-old dog who has experienced terrible things. I took him in a year and a half ago, he had three broken legs, two in the back and one in the front. The operation of the front leg lasted 4 hours, the knee practically had to be disassembled and then reassembled.

On top of everything, he had been shot with a rifle, and his body was strewn with pellets... Balu is living proof of terrible abuse. At his young age, he has already gone through so much... and yet, he still finds the feelings and strength within him to wag his tail whenever he sees people. 

He is in much better condition now than when he was found, but he will never be the same as before, he will remain a disabled dog forever and he is still fragile. It is very important for him to eat regularly, we cannot reduce his meals..."

4. Donations have dropped drastically since last year, while food and veterinary costs keep increasing... Svetlana has no money to buy kibble.


"Donations have dropped since the pandemic... they've been almost non-existent lately. At the same time, we have a much larger number of dogs to feed than we used to. We need a lot of food to keep these dogs fed, and we still need to pay for medical bills, utilities, supplies.. all this adds up fast. 

Since we have a lot of sick and old dogs, a lot of money goes to veterinary services. At the moment, we owe the vet about 2500 euros. A single puppy in need of surgery can wipe away all of your previous week's  donations...

The biggest chunk of the shelter’s budget is spent on food though. Food is always our worry, we always need more. The donations we receive are not enough, debts are pending, and my personal budget is limited... We are left without options at this point."

5. Svetlana is not asking for money, but for kibble to keep her dogs from starving.


"I have been taking care of abandoned dogs for as long as I can remember, ever since my childhood. I try to provide them with security until they find their forever home. These are animals that have been abandoned, often hungry, sick or injured. We find them on the streets, landfills, in bags...

With the  passage of time, the need to assist grew into the establishment of a dog shelter. It has become my life; I  try to help them in any way I can, and I feel responsible for them. It is my life's calling, and I enjoy it despite the many problems and challenges that I face on a daily basis. 

I am proud of every dog that is in the shelter. Every time we manage to heal a dog and improve his life, I am proud. The biggest reward is when we get a dog adopted and I see that they now have a beautiful, carefree life in a family of responsible and good people... that makes my heart full."

6. If this campaign succeeds, Svetlana will not receive any money, but 2000 kg of kibble, delivered from the Animal Webaction logistics centre in Serbia.

Animal Webaction has a logistic centre directly in Serbia, which enables us to intervene quickly and deliver kibble.

7. Despite the help of a few loyal supporters and donors abroad, Svetlana's shelter does not receive enough donations. This campaign is their last resort!

"I'm constantly reaching out to organizations for support, but there are none that can help us at this point. I guess that is due to the coronavirus and the financial crisis. We try to raise funds on Facebook, and post updates from the shelter, even though it is difficult to fit that in between all the work.

Sometimes we get a donation in the form of food, vitamins, or someone covers vet bills. Recently, we received a donation of wheelchairs from the Netherlands, several bags of food from people abroad, help with sterilizations of 11 females... We also have a few friends who help us often with small sums. 

All these small donations really means a lot to us, but unfortunately, they are not enough to cover all our costs. That is especially true now, since donations are generally lower in the summer. This campaign is really the only way out..."

8. Campaigns launched on Animal Webaction often fail.

When a campaign fails, Animal Webaction cannot deliver the products. The beneficiary doesn't receive anything and the buyers are refunded. 

9. In Serbia, street dogs are hunted by the State and ignored by the population, volunteers like Svetlana are their only hope.
