Warmer housing for the dogs


Thanks to generous donations in response to my previous post about the critical situation at a pension in Sarajevo, construction of warmer housing has begun.  We are also getting offers of dog blankets and some people are very kindly making or donating dog coats. Another priority will be to ensure the dogs have top quality food – not just to see them through the winter but also to help them get well (most of them have demodex and are very weak still after recovering from canine parvovirus.

This site is dedicated to Vučko. Read his story and don’t let him have suffered and died in vain. Please help the stray dogs and cats in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The situation there is utterly dire, Vučko is but one amongst many horrifically abused animals. Go here to find out how to help them.  Money is needed for food, medicine and foster housing. You can donate via PayPal and I then transfer the money to Bosnia.  Even just one dollar or one euro will help.

  1. Hi,
    Looking at the dog house they just built. Why was a space left between the roof and the front wall. That will allow body heat to escape Close it off with plastic. The plastic can drape down about an inch.

    Yes I’m a female, but I have been single now over 30 years so have had to do for myself. I build things. Like my 24ft long by 10 ft wide cat run. (I have ten cats and one dog.) The plastic on the walls is good that will help hold in the heat, but heat raises so will escape through that hole. Close it up. Using carpet to cover the inside walls and roof will also help insulate.

    Excellent building guys…You all are so wonderful for helping these poor deserted animals. What we give of ourselves comes back to us in so many ways. You are blessed!
