Animal Webaction visited the site 02 December 2023 and confirms the situation described below.

1. In Bosnia, Maya is almost out of kibble to feed her shelter’s 51 dogs. They will starve if no one intervenes! 


"We're running out of kibble for our dogs. Every day, the few remaining bags are getting emptier and emptier. I'm already rationing the portions to stretch the stock as far as possible, but it's not a suitable solution, as the dogs always seem to stay hungry... And they need to eat a lot more to get through the winter!

We don't have enough money to buy kibble. We already owe money to the supplier, who refuses to sell us anything until we pay him back. This is very bad news, especially for our protégés... The idea of further reducing their kibble portions sends a chill down my spine. How much more can we cut back before it becomes too detrimental to their health?

The truth is, without enough kibble, we can't take care of our dogs the way we should... The lack of kibble is more than just a logistical problem, it threatens their very existence!"

2. Without kibble to cope with the harsh Bosnian winter, the shelter's dogs will not escape unscathed!


"Our dogs desperately need kibble to stay healthy this winter. If we don't find a way to replenish our supply, they risk developing nutritional deficiencies, and seeing their immunity drop dangerously; preventing them from fighting off diseases they would normally resist...

The lack of kibble could also lead to gastrointestinal problems, and even chronic illness in the long term.  Every day that kibble is insufficient is another step towards these tangible and harmful effects on their health and quality of life. My biggest concern if this situation continues, is that the dogs' survival will be threatened... This is a huge worry for us at the shelter, because these dogs depend on us for everything."

3. Maya's frustration grows with each unsuccessful attempt to get kibble, while her remaining stock dwindles at an alarming rate...


"I've searched tirelessly for solutions, but despite all my efforts, it's getting harder and harder to find enough kibble for our dogs. Our requests for government aid have been unsuccessful and our appeals on social networks have had little impact. I did try to contact former donors, insisting on the need to provide kibble, but the response was limited.

This constant struggle to obtain enough kibble is undermining my morale. Each unsuccessful attempt to raise funds or provide kibble brings us closer to the point where we may no longer be able to provide for the dogs in our care. Not being able to provide them with their most basic needs is terribly frustrating and saddening... Their needs are simple yet vital!"

4. Maya is not asking for money, only kibble to keep the dogs from starving. 


"Kibble forms the basis of our daily care for dogs. The looming shortage therefore threatens every aspect of our mission... Without a reliable supply of kibble, our ability to respond to emergencies and save more dogs is severely limited. 

Our training and rehabilitation efforts are hit even harder. Kibble is the tool we use to bond and build trust with dogs. Without it, reinforcing the socialization of dogs and preparing them for adoption becomes impossible.

For dogs with chronic illnesses requiring long-term care, the limited supply of kibble is also a major concern. Their special diets and feeding schedules are vital to their health, and any disruption can have serious consequences. The lack of kibble is not only a challenge to our daily operations, it threatens the very essence of our mission, which is to protect these animals!"

5. The animal distress she witnesses on a daily basis deeply shakes Maya and reminds her of the vital importance of her fight for abandoned animals.


"In my daily work at the shelter, all my attention is focused on improving the lives of the dogs. Every rescue, every moment a dog finds safety within our walls, brings me a deep sense of accomplishment. Yet there are times when I feel deeply isolated in this mission, especially when faced with the reality of so many abandoned dogs. Their sadness and confusion resonate deeply with me.

My role at the shelter goes far beyond day-to-day care. It's about defending the rights and welfare of these animals, ensuring that their voices are heard and their needs met. The bond I've formed with each and every one of them is a source of joy in the midst of the many difficulties I face. And I'm constantly reminded of the importance of this mission when I look into the eyes of the dogs we've rescued..."

6. If this campaign succeeds, Maya will not receive any money but  1440 kg of kibble, delivered from Animal Webaction's logistics centre in Bosnia.
