Please look at the following “Help Animals” web sites and see if there is any way that you can help.
First, I would like to thank you for visiting the Society for the Welfare of Homeless Animals “Help Animals” site!
We’d like to invite you to help us solve animal issues in our country, and most of all the problem of abandoned animals. Our first and foremost activity is taking care of dogs and cats at the only registered no kill shelter in Belgrade. The shelter, which is 8 years old, is named ‘Riska’ and is located in the Belgrade suburb of Kotež. At the moment (09/08), Riska has 250 dogs and 103 cats in residence. There are currently only four caretakers at the shelter, so each person takes care of about 90 animals.
We’re asking all kind people, animal lovers, institutions and companies to helps us as much as they can in a manner they think is the most appropriate. Any help is appreciated and needed in order for the shelter to continue to exist and provide a safe haven for these wonderful animals!
If you truly love animals, we’re begging you to help them!
Please take a look at the pictures. They are not just pictures but also animals with names and a future that depends on you!
The problem of abandoned animals is an important societal issue. It affects the ones that love the animals and the ones that feel threatened by them. In order to address the problem humanely, in addition to spaying or neutering, it’s necessary to have shelters in which the animals will get proper care. In contrast to the city pound, animals in private shelters that don’t get adopted can stay there for the rest of their lives. That also means that private no-kill shelters have a major capacity problem since they only have so many available kennels.
If you recognize the importance of private animal shelters as a humane solution for homeless dogs and cats, and if you love animals, don’t hesitate to do something for them. They are near you and they need your help.
The shelter “Riska” exists thanks to continuous donations, but they sadly cover only one third of the expenses.
From the opening day many animals have been adopted, many have died and many come to us from the streets and the city pound.
The animals from “Riska” are counting on you.
How can you help the animals?
