Danijela has no more kibbles to feed the stray dogs, they won't make it through the winter!

Following Danijela's SOS, we went to the site on December 14th.

Due to the lack of food, street dogs are no longer fed...

As of December 18th, there will no longer be any kibble left for the dogs in the two shelters either.

Sick, wounded and/or handicapped for the most part, they will not survive without kibbles.

The only volunteers, Danijela and Jovica, are mentally, physically and financially exhausted.

They beg us to intervene, we are their only hope.

We want to help them, by sending 2400 kg of kibble as a matter of urgency.

100% transparency guaranteed

 

1. Without kibble, Danijela can no longer feed Serbia's street dogs, they will starve to death!

Without kibbles, Danijela can no longer provide any help to street dogs, including those who have recently been thrown into the streets, and will have to face the winter outside...

 

Danijela cannot bear to be helpless in the face of distressed street dogs, which she must nevertheless face every day

 

Without any other solution, she desperately tries to convince others to intervene to help street dogs, who are subjected to cold and hunger

 

"With the temperatures getting lower each day, I'm not looking forward to seeing the situation on the streets. The strays try to find shelter and warmth, only to be kicked by passers-by" she explained with regret.

 

"We are constantly getting tips for dogs in need of help. The situation on the streets is getting worse and worse, it has no end. The problem of abandonment and overpopulation is growing constantly." she also notes with disappointment that attitudes are not moving in the right direction

 

"The situation of abandoned and stray animals in Serbia has reached catastrophic levels. When faced with the fact that we have no allies, no help, no support from the state, sometimes it feels impossible to win this fight, but we have to." insists Danijela

 

 

While the association has two shelters, they now house 97 dogs, a record number that already far exceeds the normal capacity....

On the streets, about thirty dogs that cannot be taken in also rely on the food brought by the volunteers, and their number is constantly increasing: "It has no end. I can't get all the dogs off the street with us..." Danijela told us with regret.

But she can no longer feed them either, and must resign herself to watching them perish slowly! 

 

 

2. Danijela and Jovica do their utmost for those whom everyone has abandoned, but cannot save them without kibble

$$$
After being taken out of the pound in an emergency when he was very ill, this dog died on 5 December of severe pneumonia, despite the care received

 

$$$
Unable to walk when he was found, Pavle suffered from various injuries, hunger and parasites. All the treatments were given to him, allowing Pavle to get better for a few months... but he suddenly died on November 22nd

 

$$$
Rescued from the street with a major tumour, Srecko underwent surgery and chemotherapy, and had a moment of respite. But he unfortunately died last November

 

###
Danijela' s shelter now houses 45 dogs, all rescued from the street or the pound, in critical conditions

 

###
Diseases, accidents, and abuse are the daily lot of Danijela and the dogs she takes in....

 

###
Initially determined to only take in dogs until they heal, Danijela and Jovica cannot bring themselves to put their protégés back on the street in the absence of adoption: "Seeing those dogs trying to survive on the streets after taking care of them for months or years, it was too hard to bear. That’s how we ended up with so many dogs."

 

###
Of the 52 dogs housed at Jovica' s shelter, nearly 60% are currently injured, sick and/or disabled. Carts made of PVC tubes have been made for dogs with disabilities. Jovica takes care of the reeducation sessions himself, and has allowed many dogs to regain their mobility

 

###
 The most fragile ones must be kept inside, in conditions where they are neither likely to further injure themselves nor to be injured by others, but they cannot survive without kibbles...

 

 

3. From December 18, there will be no kibbles left, Danijela and Jovica fear a famine

###
Helpless and freaked out, Danijela desperately asked for our help "Excuse me if I bother, but you are our only salvation. We try, are also making a page about our rescued dogs soon so that at least someone else can come in to help us .. For now, we have only you"

 

###
"For me, the most difficult thing to endure is being faced with the depleting stock of food, and the terrifying thought that the sick and injured dogs we’re taking care of will soon go hungry. All of our efforts will be in vain if the dogs have nothing to eat. Thinking about them starving is unbearable."

 

###
Following Danijela's calls for help, we went there on December 14: there were only a few bags of kibbles and pasta left, enough to last only 4 days

 

Danijela has done her best in recent months to save the remaining kibbles, but once again finds herself faced with a depleted stock, against which she is unable to fight...

Following her call for help, we went on the spot on December 14: only the equivalent of 4 days of food remained for all the dogs. 

"If this collection doesn't work, the dogs will be without food. The donations we receive are rare, and only cover one to two days maximum. You are our only salvation" Danijela told us, supported by Jovica, "If the collection fails, we will be doomed" he said.

 

 

4. We want to help them survive the coming months

###
At the shelter for only two months, Hudin was found with his legs and back broken. Still recovering, he is still undergoing treatment at Jovica' shelter

 

###
Reported to Danijela as he was walking in the streets, with a hanging and roten paw, Ben was rescued and amputated, and has only been at the shelter for 2 months

 

###
Lora was extremely thin when she was found last summer. Affected by various parasitic diseases, one of which she is unable to heal from, Lora is still very fragile today

 

###
Found on the street with a broken column, Ksenija has only been in the shelter for a few months, and has learned to move again with a makeshift cart

 

###
Reported as he was wandering in very poor physical shape, Beba must heal from malnutrition, and suffer the amputation of one of his legs that can not be repaired

 

###
After six months at the shelter, Okac is now able to move again, although he was paralyzed when he arrived

 

###
Found on the street with a broken spine, Nick is already struggling to recover, his condition will quickly deteriorate without kibbles

 

###
Beko, a former street dog, managed to survive the disease contracted on the streets, but remains with neurological sequelae today

 

 

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 20th.

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. Calls for help are not working, the only association that supports them is not big enough to buy kibble

The online fundraising launched to support the association only raised 20€ in 10 days....

 

Danijela continues to post calls for help on her networks, but knows that the impact is minimal

 

Without any subsidy, the association relies solely on the personal funding of its volunteers, and the donations they receive. But the latter remain marginal in the face of needs, and the situation is getting more and more difficult every day...

From France, the association Les Gloutons-garous does its utmost to support Danijela and Jovica in their fight. But it is not big enough to meet the needs of the 97 dogs hosted, not to mention the street dogs! 

 

 

7. Involved in rescuing 70 dogs thrown into a mass grave at the end of the summer, Danijela and Jovica are morally, physically and financially exhausted

Nearly 70 dogs were found abandoned in the mountains last August, in an isolated place without water or food... "Dogcatchers employed by a private company pass through the territory of Kraljevo and release the dogs they previously caught in other municipalities" explained Danijela

 

###
"We found 70 dogs in total.Over 40 of them were already dead, and the living ones were feeding on them. Who knows when they had been released. We were able to save only four of them, the rest were too severely ill to survive. I can’t put the words how much this experience affected me"

 

 

###
Caught and abandoned in the middle of nowhere, Buba remains wild and traumatized. Danijela has set up a makeshift shelter for her outside, but knows she will never be able to heal her

 

In Serbia, dogcatchers commissioned by a private company regularly carry out street-cleaning operations, catching dozens of dogs, which they then release at regular intervals in isolated areas, where their chances of survival are close to zero.

Although denied, these practices are well known on the spot, and constitute a real plague. No less than 70 dogs were discovered in the middle of the mountain this summer: despite extremely heavy care, and many veterinary treatments, only 4 of them survived...

Today, Danijela and Jovica have to live with the memory of this rescue, which turned out to be almost useless, the fear of seeing it happen again, and many veterinary debts.

 

 

8. They cannot count on the town hall, who already allocates a very small budget to the municipal pound

 

Overwhelmed, Danijela knocked on all doors, including that of the city's mayor: "After months of pleading, they helped witg 180 euros in all and for all"  she told us this summer.

This is not surprising, given that the budget allocated to the municipal pound is already extremely low: "They have that bad food, they have nothing but those bad granules that are pure corn and they don't have any medicine so I bring them. Every last one of the dogs at the public shelter has constantly had diarrhea, and they are paper thin." Danijela tells us.

In addition to the 97 dogs in her own shelter, she also provides food to the dogs in the pound, ensures their medical care as soon as possible, and regularly takes care of taking the dogs out from there.... "They deserve a chance at survival" she says simply.

 

9.Danijela and Jovica accept all the sacrifices for the dogs' survival, but cannot continue alone

###
"Once you’re in this, you have no life of your own left. I chose this. Sometimes, when it gets too hard, I stop and ask myself why I did this to myself. When it gets to that level, I break down. But there’s nothing to be done about it. I can’t just get up and leave. I’d sooner die."

 

###
Overwhelmed by the difficulties and the burden of responsibilities, Danijela and Jovica are struggling to keep up the pace, and especially the spirits

 

Both volunteers of the association, Danijela and Jovica are constantly juggling between their activities to take care of Kralejevo's dogs. President of the Spaske association for 6 years, Danijela is also a municipal employee, and a mother; Jovica has spent most of his time with Spaske's dogs for 3 years, which prevents him from having a stable job, and forces him to live at his parents' house.

"We’re exhausted. The places that could take the dogs in are overcrowded, the dogs that are with us have nowhere to go, and there is no room for the ones that arrive. Most of the non-profit societies that try to make a difference are made of only two or three passionate people. It’s just the two of us here, and right now, we’re at our limits. If you can, share our dogs’ stories and help us find forever homes for them. That is our end goal. But we can’t do that if they starve. We need your help."

 

 

10. In Serbia, 100,000 street dogs are hunted down by dogcatchers to be killed or trapped in killing pounds

Danijela and Jovica Shelter is located in the centre of Serbia

 

It is estimated that Serbia has about 100,000 stray dogs. Private companies were commissioned in 2012 to capture these dogs: their dogcatchers (the name given to the employees responsible for the capture) have been operating throughout the country since then.

Receiving bonuses for each dog captured, dogcatchers hunt dogs relentlessly, and use extremely violent capture techniques. Many dogs are killed, the others end up crammed into killing pounds, without care or food.

Volunteers believe that their actions, in addition to being cruel, do not have a beneficial impact on the volume of stray dogs in the country. Worse still, they greatly undermine the beneficial actions that have existed until now: the subsidies allocated since 2007 as part of a vast national sterilization program have been drastically cut, despite encouraging results when they were carried out....

 

 

11. What will the 2400 kilos of kibble be used for ?

This collection is organized by the Spaske association, chaired by Danijela. The 2400 kg of kibbles collected will be delivered to Daniela and Jovica to feed the 97 dogs of their shelters, as  well as street dogs and dogs from the pound.
