In this Bosniac shelter is feeding its 110 dogs with bread : the weakest won't survive winter without kibble!

To answer Maya's SOS, we visited her shelter on November 24th.

Her financial situation is hard to live with, she can no longer buy kibbles for her 110 dogs: they eat bread!

The winter in Bosnia is extremely rough, the weakest dogs won't survive without kibble.

Despite her many calls for help, no foundation helps, the Government is even trying to slow her: the bills at the vet clinic are getting worst and Maya can not buy kibble anymore.

We want to help her by sending 2100 kilos of dry food in emergency!

100% transparency guaranteed.

 

 

1) Without any other choice to feed her 110 dogs, Maya gives them bread: this diet will kill the weakest!

###
Dogs have already lost weight by eating bread ...

 

###
The dogs are hungry: they throw themselves on the bread Maya offers them.

 

###
Unfortunately, the most fragile dogs will not survive this winter: breads do not provide the nutrients they need to protect themselves from negative temperatures ...

 

The winter is extremely harsh in Bosnia: to maintain their body temperature and fight against the cold, dogs must have a suitable diet. Unfortunately, kibbles are expensive and the bread allows Maya to fill their stomach to avoid fights ...

The temperatures are already very low and Maya can not afford to buy more kibble: their bread-based diet will not save them from winter!

 

 

2) The kibble stock is used out: the dogs will not survive this winter while eating bread!

###
Barely sheltered from the cold, dogs will need strength to face the snow ...

 

###
Hungry, they can't wait to see the bowls filled up again ...

 

Since the last delivery of Animal Webaction community, the stock has emptied: during our visit there were only 3 bags left, today it is completely empty ...

 

In an attempt to keep her last bags of kibble, Maya rationed the dogs with bread. If this solution were to be temporary, it is actually lasting for too long now, and will not allow dogs to protect themselves from the cold ... The most fragile ones may not survive until next spring!

 

 

3) The authorities won't stop trying to interfere in the shelter's management: Maya can't afford to buy kibbles anymore ...

###
Considered outlaw, Maya must adapt her shelter to the standards imposed by the state.

 

###
Despite her efforts, she doesn't have the financial means to achieve everything and must proceed step by step.

 

###
Boxes have been updated, but the Government keeps imposing new rules ...

 

Maya's shelter is regularly visited by the authorities who constantly impose changes to the place. Maya can not afford to refuse, because she will have to close the shelter and all the dogs would be on the street again.

Despite all her efforts to keep the shelter open, she spends a lot of money on repairs: she does not have enough to pay the debts to the veterinarian, nor to get kibble ...

 

 

4) Maya's cries for help remain unanswered: we must help her get kibble ...

Vet bills really put Maya in a difficult place...

 

The Government asks Maya to reduce the number of dogs gathered at the shelter: 25 will have to leave for host family or they will be thrown back to the pound!

 

Auctions don't gather enough money.

 

Maya is supported by small associations and a few individuals who help her in the financing of work and daily purchases. But without regular financial resources, donations are not enough to feed the dogs properly.

However, Maya has tried to look for new donors, without success ...

 

 

5) If we don't reach the target, dogs won't receive any food

A failed collection on Animal Webaction

 

We can take action, we have already booked a truck and pallets, but we have to pay it before December 2d.

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.

 

 

6) We can still save the dogs we've met!

###
Alf has a lot of teeth problem and so it is complicated for him to eat: chewing dry bread is very painful for him ...

 

###
Every winter Lily suffers from the cold and gets sick ...

 

###
Snoopy has been living at the shelter for 5 years now, and he's getting sadder ...

 

###
Linda's immunity is so fragile that Maya has to give her vitamins regularly ...

 

###
Despite her good mood Laura is very skinny and needs to be fed with kibble.

 

 

7) Maya can no longer act by herself ...

###
Maya's life is entirely dedicated to the shelter!

 

###
Very few people help Maya in her daily tasks, she is exhausted and very sad not to be able to give anything but bread to her dogs ...

 

###
Alem, photographer for Webaction, visited Maya's shelter on November 24th.

 

 

It becomes very difficult for Maya to manage the shelter alone: debts, diseases, and the Government pressuring her only exacerbate her feeling of loneliness and injustice.

She needs help to keep the shelter open and continue to adopt street dogs, who without her help would have no chance of surviving on the streets of Bosnia ...

 

 

8) In Bosnia, street dogs are tortured and killed illegally...

Elaine's Dog shelter is located near Sarajevo, in the center of Bosnia.

 

A petition launched in September 2019, reporting illegal practices in and around Sarajevo

 

In 1995, when the war in Bosnia ended, the streets were full of stray dogs: the crisis and famine no longer allowed the inhabitants to support them.. A dark period then began for street dogs that had proliferated massively: harassment, torture and violent mass slaughter had become the daily lot of abandoned dogs.

In 2009, in order to stop such a massacre, the government enforced a law prohibiting the capture and murder of dogs in pounds without prior veterinary advice. 

If this law tasted like victory to some, the lure of profit led some private pounds to charge the government for the purchase of phantom equipment.

Today, pounds catch, torture and kill stray dogs illegally in order to collect state subsidies. Corruption is not reported in the media, and private shelters try to save dogs that pass through the nets of illegal pounds...

 

 

9) What will the  2100 kilos of kibble collected be used for ? 

This collection is organized by the association Hope VMS, Maya is the president. The 2100 kilos of food will be delivered to to feed the 110 dogs gathered at her shelter.
