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

1. In Bosnia, Renata is running out of kibble to feed the 150 dogs in her shelter, they will starve to death if nobody takes action!

%%%

"The number of dogs at the shelter never decreases: we have turnover because we work hard on adoption, but as soon as we have space, other dogs need it. Yet we live off donations that are getting weaker and weaker, especially now people are on vacation, and we can no longer buy kibble... The holiday season is very critical.

Our 300 kilos of kibble left will be gone within four days, then we will be left without food, as we have not been able to collect the necessary means to buy the amount of food needed for our 150 dogs. The situation is bad, it is a drag on our morale.

The dogs' health risks deteriorating, but the worst is aggression because dogs will get violent towards each other and start fighting. I can't allow the dogs to go without food; should kibble go missing for a few days, I'd have to let them go! They would be doomed, I cannot even imagine it, I'd give up everything for the dogs."

2. Without kibble, Renata will have to give up any further rescue, although many dogs in distress urgently need her help.

###

"We volunteers are already feeling powerless because we do not have enough resources to take care of all the dogs in distress, and the lesser food we have the fewer dogs we help, while many dogs need feeding and rescuing...  

At the public pound, dogs are just dumped and forgotten, and they are fed at best with expired food products, so we try to get out as many as we can, and to feed those we cannot rescue daily. We also feed about 15 puppies on the streets, whom we can't bring in immediately. There is no food to find on the streets since people are no longer having their meals outside, so we give them food to strengthen them.

Stray dogs are abandoned by people, by the state, by God, by everyone… and if we don't help them, then I don't know who will. We can actually manage everything but a lack of kibble. If we have food we will take care of the rest."

3. Run over by a car, Dulsa is a double amputee who has found safety with Renata, but who will not survive if Renata has no more kibble for her. 

###

"Dulsa was hit by a car about two years ago and was brought to the shelter. She had many injuries... We even had to take her to the clinic in Belgrade for treatment. She underwent three surgeries there, including an amputation of her two hind legs that were too shattered.

Dulsa has now recovered, she is looking healthy and happy, but it is still a lot of work because her bottom is exposed to dirt and we need to clean her up regularly to prevent her from catching infections.

Besides, given her condition and until we get her adopted, she will need me to keep on bringing her kibble as she would be incapable of living on her own."

4. Rescues are incredibly costly, donations have plummeted with the pandemic and the state is refusing to provide any support… Renata can no longer buy kibble.

###

"The pandemic has resulted in a lot of financial and economical problems for everyone, their consequences have been felt and will keep being felt. Faced with insufficient donations, we have tried to ask the municipality for help, but subsidies for associations like ours do not exist. 

Expenses are huge: we have workers that we need to pay, because no one can live off the air, and 24 dogs in therapy who need medication every day. We also have 4 disabled dogs who require special care, and we need to test, sterilise and vaccinate every new dog that comes in – this process lasts a minimum of 21 days!

We have debts at the vet as well as for kibble, and we were given a month to repay them. I hope that the state will wake up one day and decide it is their responsibility to take care of the food. That would be a huge help, but until then...  if we can't find food we will hardly be able to keep helping the dogs."

5. Renata is not asking for money, only kibble to keep the dogs from starving.

###

"I am the founder of the association, I initiated everything and my life is dedicated to animals. I moved in from another city with my five dogs and started rescuing more, until I reached the number of 75 and built an actual shelter. Now I live here with the dogs and I feel just fine!

I know I have contributed to fewer dogs on the streets, which is good news for people — but first and foremost I'm happy for the dogs. We have made them very happy and we have changed their lives.

And although some have been through evil and have survived all sorts of people, they keep loving human beings… We get up to 30 dogs adopted per month, and I am proud of every adopted dog."

6. If this campaign is successful, Renata will not receive any money but 2400 kg of kibble will be delivered from the Animal Webaction logistic platform in Bosnia

###

Animal Webaction has a logistic platform in Bosnia, which allows us to intervene quickly and deliver kibbles.

7. Renata and her supporters are already doing their best, but the holidays are putting a strain on their efforts... only this harvest will ensure that the dogs are fed.

###

"Recently, our international cooperation plans have been limited to adoption: a British organisation is helping us to find homes for the dogs and to fund sterilisation, vaccination and transportation.

Apart from this, we sell some crafts and collect money and food independently, but in general our supporters are the same: a small, loyal team of retired people who have been with us for 5 years. We also have a Facebook page, but it is now summer and people spend less time online, so we are struggling with our appeals and it is hard to raise funds.

This shelter is too big a project for our small team and we need further help. I am very grateful to be given the opportunity to reach out to people from other countries and make them aware of our situation."
