The Association for protection and welfare of animals “Život BiH” is a non-government and non-profit organization that deals with the rescuing of abandoned dogs and cats, domestic and wild animals, their medical treatments and finding them places to live.
Jelena Paunovic has recently been made head of PR for Život BiH.
Currently the Association is focused on Sarajevo Canton due to the lack of financial assets. The goal of the Association is also to organize workshops in kindergartens, elementary and high schools with a goal of creating conscience with younger generation about the problem of abandoned / abused animals in B&H territory and the correct interaction when encountering abandoned animals on streets.
The Association is financed exclusively through donations. Gathered funds (money contributions, food for animals, blankets, leashes and similar) are directed to current cases handled by the Association. Each donation is carefully noted to accomplish full transparency.
Incomes of the Association are: membership fees, voluntary donations and gifts from private and legal entities, both foreign and domestic, in form of cash, services or property of any kind.
Activists of the Association have saved hundreds of animals. Some of these animals have been cured and put back on the streets, some have been given homes, while we are currently paying private accommodations for 20 dogs. According to the British organization “Dogs Trust”, in Sarajevo alone there are 11 168 abandoned dogs. They are victims of everyday violence, and we always strive to help, even when we have no financial assets available to us.
