1. In North Macedonia, Kemal will soon run out of kibble to feed the 60 dogs in his shelter, they will starve if no one helps!

%%%

“'Right now, adoptions are not going well, people hesitate to adopt an animal in such complicated times... The problem is that I now have to welcome more dogs than usual at the shelter, and the lack of kibble has terrible consequences on them. For the last three days, I've been thinking about a solution to cover food expenses without reducing its quantity nor quality, but I have found nothing! Providing kibble for all my dogs is a real challenge : it’s a matter of time and resources, and I am lacking both...

My own resources are limited and donations are definitively not enough to buy kibble for all the dogs. It's becoming more and more difficult to manage everything by myself. At the moment, I have some supporters who give me positive feedback and strength to go on, and sometimes a few bags of kibble to survive a small amount of time, but it is not enough… I have no one to rely on financially, and I currently have only 3 days of kibble left… 

The last campaign with Animal Webaction made me realize that I am not alone and that some people actually care about us! I am so grateful to everyone who clicked and helped us getting kibble last time, I really hope that this campaign will succeed as well, it would mean a lot, it would mean that the fight for dogs' happiness continues, that I am not alone and that we can all save the dogs from starving in the streets!"

2. Dennis has just been rescued from the streets: he is in such a terrible state of health that he will need kibble to recover !

###

“At only 2 years old, Dennis arrived at the shelter in a terrible state of health... Abandonned by his owners two days ago, he had scabies and as a result, really bad skin issues! Now that he is sheltered here, he is getting a little bit better but his fur is still falling off. His recovery will take time, it will require energy and a big amount of kibble. Dennis also needs a lot of vitamins in order to get well soon, but it won't matter if his stomach remains empty!”

3. Because Kemal doesn't have the means to shelter them, some 40 dogs have to survive in the streets : they will starve if Kemal doesn't bring them kibble!

###

“The situation in the streets is catastrophic, the number of abandoned dogs is insane! As much as I would love to help all the dogs in need, I don't have the means to shelter all of them... I rescue the ones that are in a terrible shape, and I continue to feed the other ones, hoping to get enough food for them to survive...

Unfortunately, lately, I wasn't able to feed them daily, as I don't even have enough for the dogs living in my shelter... I always hope that street dogs will be fed by locals, but on the contrary they are being hurt, poisonned, or even killed ! If I don't go to the streets, keep an eye on them and feed them, they have no chance to survive.

Street dogs are seen as a threat in this conutry, people don't accept them and they have no empathy! I'm afraid for their lives, no matter if they are spayed or not, dogs are still attacked by citizens, getting poisoned or hit by cars... They are still getting sick without a chance of being cured or rescued. This kibble campaign must succeed, it has to... Otherwise these dogs are doomed." 

4. A recent drop in donations and adoptions has led Kemal to a financial crisis : he has no money left to buy kibble!

###

“Lack of food, drop in donations, financial issues, less adoptions : this is what I have been going through lately. I have debts that I try to pay by the end of each month but it is getting harder and harder. Every dog I take here costs me a minimum of 100 euros, depending on his health condition. Every morning I think about how I'm going to get proper food and medical treatment for dogs…

The situation I am in right now scares me a lot! When I have kibble, my dogs are fed well and healthy, I have less concerns, and it's easier to breathe, but as you can see I started to run out of resources. People still don't donate much, I funded the shelter from my own pocket, and I still do…

I could get great results if people were more responsible, or involved in the rescues, but owners still abandon their pets, leaving them on the streets or by the shelter. I wish they understood that you need to start from yourself, taking care of the environment and each other. I have hope with this campaign because it allows people to feed the dogs with just one click.”

6. Kemal isn't asking for money, only kibble to prevent the dogs from starving.

###

“I've been loving pets and all living creatures since I was a kid. I tried to rescue and save as many dogs as possible, but I couldn't keep a large number at my house, so I opened this shelter where dogs can be fed, loved, and safe. I'm always try to help : if some dog got hit by car, I rescue him, if another is treated badly or even tortured, I'll try my best to take this dog to the shelter. Every day is a real challenge, every single life saved is an accomplishment, every adoption makes me happy and satisfied with my mission.

At the shelter, I work as a carpenter, solve financial issues, pay bills, provide food, feed dogs and monitor their health. Most people think that I'm crazy and that dogs are not really important, but I don't share their opinion. My mission here is not only to bring dogs from the streets to the shelter, but also to find a home for them. I'm so happy when I manage to find homes and loving families for my dogs : it gives me hope that soon the rest of stray dogs will be rescued, and I know my action matters. If I can't save them… no one will. 

At the moment, I have 4 people with me : 2 employed part-time, and 2 volunteers who usually visit us once a week, and help me with finding homes for dogs. Some people come to cuddle and play with dogs, I'm glad to see that not everyone around is ignorant towards dogs. There is a public service which sterilizes homeless dogs, and provides medical help for dogs in distress. However, after 2 weeks or one month at most, those dogs are brought back in the streets to the same spots… If I could I would save them all, but my problem is that I lack funds and resources!”

7. If this campaign succeeds, Kemal will not receive any money but 1800 kg of kibbles, delivered from Animal Webaction's logistics platform in Macedonia.

Animal Webaction has a logistics centre in Macedonia which enables us to intervene quickly and deliver kibbles.

8. The association can only count on a few supporters, who try everything they can, but it's not enough : Kemal needs this campaign to be able to give kibble to feed his dogs.

“I always hope that people will pay attention to my shelter and support me, but the truth is I manage everything by myself mostly. I have a job and a small business in Skopje, so I sacrifice my own funds to make dogs happier, that's why this place is called the “Happy Shelter”!

However, we've tried our best to influence donations, and find people who could help us but it did not work! Unfortunately we're all by ourselves in this country, our volunteers are waiting for the response of an organization from the Netherlands, which could help us with adoptions, but we haven't heard from them yet.

One of our supporters who recently adopted a dog from our shelter tried to help us with fundraisings and raising people's awareness about the Happy Shelter, so more people could learn about our rescues and might donate 2-3 pounds, but at the moment, we haven't found any other organization that could help us with food… This campaign is vital for us!”

9. 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. 

10. In Macedonia, neither the state nor the population wants to help the abandoned dogs. A lot of animals are left to die outside, there is no care for them.
