Ela has now set up a Facebook page called ‘Hope For Serbian Animals’,
but she is after more help with getting this site sorted – can you help please ?
Please have a look at the Borkas cats which are shown in the following photos. They are cared for by a Roma lady who belongs to people who have been moved on by the authorities. She is one of the only people to remain and she feeds about 60 cats.
If she is moved then all the cats will be left and may be rounded up and taken to the local pound to die. As we currently understand, Ela is establishing a link on her page that would allow you to donate. The appeal would be for the cats and their carers who help with feeding, sterilisation and vaccinations.
E mail contact can be made with Ela at email@example.com should you wish to help immediately.
The message from Serbia via Ela is as follows:
Subject: Borka’s cats
Date: Saturday, 20 October, 2012,
The cats in this album live in a slum settlement from which Roma people were forcefully relocated and forbidden to take their animals with them. Borka is one of the few inhabitants who remained there and she is the only one who looks after about 40-50 cats. She also has two dogs.
Borka lives in a makeshift shack with no electricity and running water. Understandably, she has no financial means to provide food for so many cats. Spay campaign is under way and so far 15 females have been sterilized. Most of these cats are tame and they desperately need food an home. Soon there will be no one to feed them when the authorities remove the remaining people who are still living there. Please help them!
