Milena Malesevic helps over 150 starving, abused and suffering street dogs and strays in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina - a desolate dangerous place for dogs

"My name is Milena Malasevic - I am desperate about the plight of stray dogs in Bosnia-Herzogevina. So many are suffering from abuse, neglect, hatred, starvation, shootings and poisonings. There are hardly any shelters in the whole country and the ones that do exist are often corrupt and the dogs suffer terribly.


Many people believe strays should be killed rather than neutered or spayed and kill dogs themselves with rifles and sling shots - there are also regular poisonings - dogs die here every day - and many are injured from deliberate car hit and runs

Not that long ago youths in Sarajevo attached a firework to a dog's face and a couple cemented dogs into a wall - abuse here is sadly a day to day occurrence.

I have been helping and rescuing poor street dogs for 20 years now and have the the most urgent dogs in my tiny flat 12th floor and in kennels - and I feed and care for the many many hungry dogs in the area (150-200) and beyond which includes an industrial park and remote areas where dogs are starving and desperate. I love all the dogs I care for and they love me. For them it is the only love and care they have ever known. I arrange adoptions but I desperately need financial help to pay for food, vet bills and kennels.

I am always looking for adopters - I foster dogs in my flat and use kennels and am always looking for forever homes. I feature dogs for adoption on this page and in the photos section. In the last 4 years I have helped 300 dogs to find new homes including here, Austria, Germany, Holland, Italy, Florida, Norway, Croatia, Slovenia and the UK."
