Animal welfare activists went to Hreša last night. The situation had not changed other than, as warned by the shelter manager, a high wire fence had been placed around the area. Activists counted 10 dogs in one small cage. But they could do nothing at this point and feared for their safety.
I have also heard from Dogs Trust UK that they are fully aware of the situation, and have been in meetings with the SVO (State Veterinary Office) this week and will have further meetings with the municipality and the shelter itself. I will let you know if anything comes of these meetings.
Here is the earlier story of Hreša: Part One – Part Two – Part Three – Part Four – Part Five.

One of the dogs found last November. Activists were prevented from rescuing this dog and when they returned a day later they were told the dog was ‘euthanised.’

Come on Dogs Trust lets get these dogs helped and thankyou all x
We can only hope that Dogs Trust can help now.
Thank you, Sandra, for giving us this update.
So appalling, and terribly sad. Those poor dogs. Really hope and pray, Dogs Trust can make a positive difference for the future of the dogs that are still alive at this point, before it’s too late.
