HOW TO HELP

If you have a question on how to help that is not answered below, please email AWABosnia at info@awabosnia.org

There are three ways to help. Donations; advocacy and adopting or sponsoring a rescue and fundraising.

EASYFUNDRASING
If you search the web, you can raise funds just by using the EasyFundraising search bar: http://animalwelfareadvocates.easysearch.org.uk/ – you can raise 0.5p for Animal Welfare Advocates for Bosnia Herzegovina everytime you search the web. Also, if you live in the UK and do online shopping, if you join EasyFundraising,  you can allocate “Animal Welfare Advocates For Bosnia” to receive a percentage of your purchase cost, paid for by the retailer – with no extra payment by you. Sign up here: http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/

DONATIONS
Please contribute so animal welfare advocates can make a difference to the lives of stray and abandoned dogs. On the website Animal Welfare Advocates for Bosnia, you can set up a monthly donation that will then get distributed to the rescuers; or if you prefer to make a one off contribution, please go to your PayPal account (or set one up, it’s very easy) and send the money to:  donations@awabosnia.org – Click on the image below to be taken to PayPal’s home page.

ADVOCACY

PLEASE NOTE THAT PETITIONS DO VERY LITTLE. WE HAVE ORGANISED MANY WITH HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF SIGNATURES OBTAINED, BUT NO CHANGE HAS HAPPENED. It is better to write letters as follows:

1. Write letters to your embassy representative in Bosnia:

To find your Embassy in Bosnia-Herzegovina go here:

Finding any MEP in Europe – a ‘Euromap’
http://www.europarl.europa.eu/meps/en/map.html
Finding any MEP by the alphabetical name list can be done via the following link: http://www.europarl.europa.eu/members/expert/alphaOrder.do?language=EN

2. Write letters to international animal welfare organisations – google this for email addresses or go here on Wikipedia for information

3. Donations:

Either directly to rescuers (see ‘Activists‘ for a list of some of them) or to AWABosnia, via paypal:

Or if you want to use the customised PayPal form, click the link below. However, a transaction fee and a percentage (2- 5.4%) will be deducted by PayPal for any contribution made.

If you want your contribution to go to a specific dog,
please make a note in the PayPal comment box. 

To convert Euros into Dollars, use this website.

Money is needed for advocacy work, spay-neuter programs, emergency cases of animal abuse or injury, for food for the 11,000+ strays on the streets of Sarajevo and to keep rescued strays safe in pension.

Vučko is dead. But you can help something good come out of his suffering by supporting  animal welfare volunteers in Bosnia.

Any amount will help, no matter how small. If everyone who signed the petitions seeking justice for Vučko’s killers, donated one dollar or one Euro, a profound difference would be made to the lives of the abused and abandoned dogs and cats in Sarajevo and other areas of Bosnia-Herzegovina. Right now volunteers are struggling 24/7 to rescue, feed and take care of the strays. If they were given adequate funding they would have more time to continue with campaigning the government to get abuse laws enforced and set up proper groups to ensure the welfare of animals.

ADOPTION  or SPONSORSHIP
If you are able to sponsor or adopt a dog from Bosnia Herzegovina, please see the AWABosnia Facebook page.

For more information on adoption or sponsorship please contact us.
