Jelena and the team rescued many dogs from the city pound yesterday (18/06).

All of these dogs were due to have been killed, but via collaboration with one of the vets at the pound who is more cooperative with Jelenas work, the dogs were allowed to be taken; but only 2 dogs for every one person in the team who wanted to help.

Today (19/06) it is hoped that a return journey will be made and many more dogs rescued from the pound.  Jelena does not have any spare space at her shelter as she is full to capacity, and to begin with, the rescued dogs had to be chained up outside of the shelter.  Now they have all been moved into the shelter and put onto additional land.

In addition to all these new dogs, someone left two boxes at the shelter, which when opened, contained six puppies.
