10484142_10153007842443387_1982794010553137039_oFor some time now AWABosnia has run a fundraiser for sterilising the dogs of Prnjavor shelter, Bosnia Herzegovina. This is possible due to the work of Bojan Veselica, an independent rescuer who does everything he can to see that the dogs in this public shelter are cared for. Unfortunately public funds do not cover sterilisation, and this is a real problem as there is no way to separate male and female dogs.

Bojan contacted us and we started fundraising last year,
10474535_10153008600963387_5604793361443963646_nand managed to raise enough to sterilise 12 dogs by March 2015. The original goal was to cover the costs for 20 dogs, and this would include rabies vaccinations and parasites.

However, there are many dogs needing sterilisation and Bojan recently wrote: “Situation is getting from bad to worse each day at Prnjavor public shelter. Its spring time and people surrender their dogs every day now. In the last 20 days there is 10 new dogs. Its getting pretty crowded inside. I don’t see some happy future for this. I am trying my best but I can’t stop people from 11080587_10153007842363387_7230316890892802054_odumping their dogs. I can try and do as much sterilisations as possible but we need the funds. Oh I am getting really tired from this.”

Yesterday we emailed the The Harmony Fund to see if they could help and they immediately wrote back: “We will match all donations that come in from now until end of day Friday 17th April (up to 700 Euros).

This is an incredible offer, so we really want to see if we can generate 700 euros of donations in the next day and a half. This will mean 1400 euros for Prnjavor, which means TWENTY EIGHT dogs can be sterilised!
