Little Flake, run over and left to die

10157152_656226111110953_7620671140407217353_nTwo weeks ago Andjeo Sarajevo, animal welfare charity in Sarajevo, Bosnia Herzegovina, found this little dog lying in the middle of a busy intersection, lying immobile with blood everywhere. They immediately stopped the car and rescued her,  a 3-4 month old puppy with a very serious open fracture of her front leg and her other leg with skin all peeled back, her ear all torn up.

10154215_656226324444265_4889446405624377285_nThey took the puppy to the vet and she got the urgent help she needed. Unfortunately her ear had to be amputated. X-rays were taken of her legs. She was operated on and the operation was successful, and funds raised to cover the cost.

She is now at a pension (boarding kennel) and was named Little Flake.

She is still in pain and whines, but as soon as someone approaches  her, she wags her tail and kisses the persons hands… She has all the medicines and analgesics she needs. She has a big advantage because she is a young puppy and even her bones will heal. Thanks to everyone who has helped her. I hope that we will not forget about her and that she will conquer someones heart.

Funds are needed to keep her safe off the street and for medical care. The pension costs 120 euros a month (about 165 USD). If you can help, please scroll to the end of the page for donation instructions.

We also have a Virtual Adoption programme, where you can help keep Little Flake safe off the streets until she finds a permanent home by donating a specific amount each month.


There are several rescues needing this kind of sponsorship. When you become Virtual Adoptor for a rescue from Bosnia Herzegovina, you will not only help keep the animal safe and off the streets, but will create a special bond. We understand that not everyone can adopt; which is why becoming a Virtual Adopter for one of the rescues whose pictures and story touched you is a wonderful alternative to adoption. The bond formed through this virtual adoption program will keep you connected to the progress of your chosen rescue, and hopefully, you will see them find their wonderful forever home.

Most dogs need 120 euros per month to stay safe off the streets, so we were thinking to set 6 VAs per dog at 20 Euros (about 30 USD) each per month. But we understand that not everyone can reach the set fee.  Another option would be for you to offer per month the amount you can afford ad we will continue to look for VAs for that dog until the “goal” is reached.
