Children and their Dogs Living in Garbage-


Children and their Dogs Living in Garbage-

Recently Jelena Paunović and other animal activists in Sarajevo went on their rounds to feed stray dogs. They came upon a very sad scene, in Jelena’s words:

“The whole world knows me as “Jelena who helps animals”. From time to time, there is someone who is “surprised” when I share a post to help people. “Oh my God you are helping people too…”

I am not sure if I am helping them, but as a human being, I can, if nothing else, share other’s people troubles and hope some assistance comes their way.

We visited a few places in the city today. We met new people and new animals. People are as miserable and hungry as their dogs are, but they don’t give up on each other. We visited one Gypsy quarter where we met 15 children who feed stray dogs and cats, in spite of the fact that they don’t have anything for themselves.

Funds are needed not only to help individual rescues and to help us keep safe the rescued dogs we are sponsoring but also to continue our advocacy work in Bosnia, uncovering the truth about what is happening there.
Paypal Donations for the dogs and children in the post above via Andjeo Sarajevo at [email protected] or through our group Animal Welfare Advocates for Bosnia at [email protected] – please state for “Gypsy Quarter” and how you would like your money used.

If you live in the UK and can donate supplies for strays (food, veterinary supplies, blankets, collars, leashes, vitamins) or the children above, please send an email to Debbie Birch as we are now able to bring supplies over once a year via Alstrays pet transport and Debbie, who adopted a dog from Bosnia, has offered to co-ordinate.

On our sister site, Animal Welfare Advocates for Bosnia, you can set up a monthly donation via PayPal, or if you want to make a one-off donation, please go to your PayPal account (or set one up, it’s very easy) and send the money to: [email protected] as a ‘gift’.
