WORST FLOODING IN 120 years! Strays and pets are in dire need!

1017376_10152174252023995_2745444860510893148_nTO HELP: Paypal to donations@awabosnia.org mark for EMERGENCY FUNDS

As you know from our post from yesterday, (EMERGENCY IN SARAJEVO – the strays need your help!) flooding conditions in parts of Bosnia Herzegovina have reached an
10311780_278226012354547_5164725718723680444_nemergency state. Things have not improved and have in fact gotten worse. Bodies of dogs and cats are being found, and dogs have been found left chained up outside homes that have been evacuated… remember there are well over 10,000 strays in the city of Sarajevo alone…

Donations have been coming in and we have been sharing these amongst as many areas and rescuers as possible, THANK YOU!

But still rescuers all over the country need our support in their rescue efforts – very few have cars, and fewer still have cars that can handle these kind of weather conditions but they are doing their best, working around the clock to search all areas that are worst hit.

This is a state of emergency for the people of the country, but in these cases, especially in a culture that does not value the life of animals, the strays and even owned animals are the ones who will suffer the most.

There are good people helping… watch this amazing dog rescue from flood debris – in Zenica, Bosnia & Herzegovina:

and this soldier saved these puppies…

Rescuers are out trying to feed and save as many animals as possible…

  1. Hello!

    I just sent 100 euros via PayPal / Emergency Funds to help in this terrible situation.

    Sincerely, Katri Kovanen

    • The situation is terrible all over the Balkans. Unfortunately our group has limited resources and we only focus on Bosnia – but there are other groups helping in Serbia, Croatia.
