Sara was found on the streets of Sarajevo, her leg horrifically mutilated. As I write this she is being seen by a vet. She will need intensive care and medical treatment. Funds are URGENTLY needed for this. To donate, even just one euro or one dollar would help. Go here to find out how to donate – it would be directly to me via PayPal and I would then transfer the money to Bosnia. I can also give you the PayPal email address of my Bosnian animal welfare contacts if you prefer. Even just one dollar or one euro will help. I will update this page in the comments as to the prognosis by the vet when I hear news.

Sara’s just seen the vet: Jelena says “I visited vet but unfortunately he was at his home and he had no necessary instruments and medications at hand. He gave me advice how to take care of her leg so I went to pharmacy and bought cotton, bandages, hydrogen peroxide and antibiotics. We took care of her wounded leg till tomorrow. Tomorrow we will visit vet at his ordination and he will do proper job. He sad that perhaps leg could be saved so we can only hope it is true, he also told that amputation is simplest solution but in this case there is some hope. Wound is about 3 days old and is probably caused by caustic chemical (some form of acid probably).“

Sara has passed away at 11:30 am. This from Jelena: This from Jelena: “We went to vet to check out her wounds and to do necessary surgical cleaning. After she got sedated and vet started cleaning it turned out that wound is heavily infected and under attack of worms. Vet suggested only solution is high amputation and cleaning of the rest minor wounds on her belly. But before he even started performing surgery she was gone, it seems her poor little body was to weak to survive all pre medication necessary for performing surgery. What to say, I’m very sad and depressed, hope there is some better world waiting for her on the other side.”
This is what her wounds looked like at the end. The vet thinks she was burned with bleach or something stronger.
Rest in peace little Sara.
