Animal Webaction visited the site 01 October 2020 and confirms the situation described below.

1. In Serbia, Sladja is no longer able to buy kibble for the 135 dogs at her shelter. They will starve if nobody steps in!

%%%

"To be honest, it is really, really hard. I am struggling. I am funding almost everything myself, about 70% comes from my own resources. My main issue is providing food for the dogs. We have an ongoing problem with food, which is getting worse and worse.  

My resources are almost run out, and because of COVID-19 I can not ask for help from my friends because they all felt consequences of the crisis. We have fewer donations now. Me and my dogs really need help."

2. If she doesn't find kibble, Sladja will be forced to close the shelter, which is the only hope for these dogs.

###

"I am taking care of all abandonned dogs in the County. I am checking the streets everyday, and I also feed about 20 dogs on the street, as the shelter is full. Luckily in Serbia, the lockdown wasn't total, so I've been able to go check on them daily all along.

Right now, I have 5 days worth of food, 7 at most. With no food, dogs will start to be aggressive against each other. But without my shelter these animals do not have a place to go, they would be on the streets. The government is doing nothing to help the animals. The animals can rely only on individuals like mysef.

In the last 10 years, my association has rescued and hosted more than 500 dogs,  many of whom have been adopted, and neutered 1750 dogs in our municipality. Now, I need help to continue."

3. Rescued while he was still a puppy, Bobi is weakened by illness and will not be able to recover without kibble.

###

"I found Bobi on the street as a little puppy, he is now 5 years old. Unfortunately Bobi is sick, he is having issues with his thyroid gland. Not only does he need treatment, but he also needs more food than usual due to this disease.

He is under treatment, but he won't be able to overcome this in case of a food shortage."

4. Sladja has no more money to buy kibbles, her debt keeps growing with the supplier who can refuse to deliver at any time.

###

"I am paying almost everything from my own resources, but I really do not have enough money at the moment to buy food. We are getting food from a local manufacturer who is cutting us some slacks so we can pay later, but I am not sure how long he will tolerate this.

I'm feeling pressured, I have debts not only for food, but also at the local clinic. I feel lucky that people have trust in me to offer me such a solution but still, I am extremely worried to not be able to pay them back.

To be honest I do not know what to do at this point. I am trying not to think about what would happen if I do not manage to find food, just thinking about how to provide for all of them."

5. Sladja  isn't asking to receive any money, only kibbles to keep the dogs from starving.

###

"I spent my life working and living abroad. When I came back to Serbia I could not believe how they treat dogs. There is a law but just on paper. I decided to give a voice to these animals and to fight for them.

It took 2 years of dedicated work and enthusiasm to provide the space for all the dogs I wanted to save. They would already be dead if not for this shelter. We must stay alive."

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

Animal Webaction has a logistic centre directly in Serbia, which enables us to intervene quickly and deliver kibbles.

7. Sladja has already contacted many organisations without success, she no longer knows how to get help.

"The shelter does not have constant donations. The ones I receive have dropped, and this is for sure because of COVID-19. I think people are simply stressed and do not have enough time and money to think about the dogs in this situation. I have help from my friends and individuals from here and abroad but this is not enough.

I tried to contact all the other organisations in Serbia, but the thing is that we are all in the same situation. Here there is a lack of awareness about the problem. We got help, one time from the Orca organization, and that it is it."

8. Campaigns launched on Animal Webaction often fail.

Liste des récoltes échouées

When a campaign fails, Animal Webaction cannot deliver the products. The beneficiary doesn't receive anything and the buyers are refunded. 

9. In Serbia, street dogs are hunted by the State and ignored by the population, volunteers like Sladja are their only hope!

If you know of a foundation or NGO that could help Sladja, please invite them to contact us so that we can put them in touch.

If you represent an animal protection foundation or NGO, please help Sladja's dogs, contact us and we will put you in touch!

If you would like to go to the association's shelter to help or if you would like to send kibbles or a cheque directly to Sladja, contact her via her association's page on Facebook (note: direct help is your own responsibility).
