Saving the dogs of BARK ARK shelter in Prnjavor, Bosnia

Animal Webaction launched a campaign to collect food for the in Prnjavor. There are over 700 dogs in this shelter and food and medical care are only provided by outside donors, even though this is a ‘public shelter’. The Government only covers a one-time fee that barely covers vaccinations. They have an amazing advocate, Bojan Veselica, and he along with supporters have managed to do a lot for the dogs and to try to make the shelter safe, but without food, the situation is impossible. The dogs come from a hard life as strays on the streets of Prnjavor, Samac, Celinac, Modrica and other cities in Northern Bosnia. Others are surrendered by their heartless owners after a life on a chain because they are too old or got sick. All of them have one thing in common: they need to eat to survive.

More than 150 dogs find warm and loving homes each year and Bojan is working on increasing these numbers. But he needs help to keep them safe until then. Animal Webaction is a four day ‘action’ that allows people to either donate money for food, or to simply click the campaign, without donating anything. You have four free clicks per day, With each click you donate 1 gram of food for the dogs. A great many clicks will be needed to reach the goal of over 4000 Kilo in four days and if the goal isn’t raised, the shelter will not get anything. So please help.  If you share this campaign with your friends on Facebook and Instagram, I am sure the campaign will succeed! This would be such a big help for Bojan and the dogs.

So please, starting now, click, share and help!!

The situation there is utterly dire, Vučko is but one amongst many horrifically abused animals. Even just one dollar or one euro will help make a difference.
