Betty and Lady were found as very young puppies with their sisters in Sarajevo, in the middle of nowhere. They were all rescued and put into pension. Unfortunately there was an outbreak of canine parvovirus and five dogs out of thirteen died. It was a terrible time.
But Betty and Lady survived. Because of their lowered immune system, both then caught a mild case of demodex, but were able to heal and are doing much better now. Betty is gentle, lively, an ‘ideal’ dog, she’s been described! Lady is a little more dominant, very playful and cuddly. They know how to walk on a leash, love people and just love to play. They have spent all their lives in pension (kennels), so we really need to find them that perfect home where they can get the comforts and cuddles they deserve.
Both are medium sized dogs, about a year old, a collie-mix, black and golden coloured with thick coats.
Our group, AWAB, Animal Welfare Activists for Bosnia, have a transport from Bosnia to the UK, set for June. There are still 12 rescued dogs who haven’t had anyone ask about them, or offer them home, and Betty and Lady are amongst these 12. You can find the full list on the AWAB website.
Please also consider fostering. This would provide a dog with a safe and caring home environment (far superior to that of a Bosnian pension) as well as providing the dog with house-training, human/animal contact and getting the dog used to a new domestic environment. It would also offer the opportunity of the dog finding a forever home locally! Through fundraising, we would provide both the food and pet insurance (including public liability) for the dog while it’s in the foster home. In addition AWAB would continue to collaborate with the fosterer to promote the adoption of the dog.
Another way to help is to sponsor a place on the transport. The cost is about £245 or 300 euros. If you think you could help, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funds are needed not only to help individual rescues and to help us keep safe the 20 rescued dogs we are sponsoring but also to continue our advocacy work in Bosnia, uncovering the truth about what is happening there.

This site is dedicated to Vučko. Read his story and don’t let him have suffered and died in vain. Please help the stray dogs and cats in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The situation there is utterly dire, Vučko is but one amongst many horrifically abused animals. Go here to find out how to help them. Money is needed for food, medicine and foster housing. Even just one dollar or one euro will help.
