From the talks with a group of citizens who have expressed strong dissatisfaction about the media reports covering the protest held in Sarajevo.

On 15.12.2013. in front of the Parliament in Sarajevo about 2,000 citizens gathered to express their dissatisfaction with the amendments to the Law on the protection and welfare of animals which requires that all street dogs be put to sleep after 15 days in adequate shelters that do not exist.

Citizens who opposed the amendments have been slandered and accused they are protesting for their own benefit.

Citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina are shocked and disappointed that the media falsely reported and wrote the protests only had 200 citizens, although there are many photographs and video footage showing how it really was.

Who is behind the media ‘objectivity’ and why are the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina hiding the truth about euthanasia or the fact that killing dogs is more expensive than the solution to the problem?

Why are the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina hiding from REGISTRATION OF OWNED DOGS?

Citizens who oppose the amendments to the Act,  are forced to turn to world media for the truth to come out.

The truth is that abuse against strays in Bosnia-Herzegovina is one of the highest in the world. Just a few days ago a 2 month old puppy was found with his legs cut off and his eyes gouged out. We are all shocked by this and I’m sorry about the distressing photographs but we have to let the world know what is happening here.

R.I.P. innocent soul.


We need to do what we can to save the strays of this country. If you think you might be able to offer a home to a rescue, please contact us at
