2010: January 1st – Happy New Year – New Site Launched Today

Happy New Year to Everyone; may you enjoy good health, positive campaigning and to continue being a voice for animals.

Today, 1st January 2010, sees the introduction of our new sister site which has been in the planning for a while now.

Largely aimed at being an information and photographic site, with links to all past SAV issues and campaigns, you will find many new photographs held on SAV archives but which are previously unpublished.  We have even more still in our database; possibly these will be added at a later date.

This is simply the start of the new site which is called ‘Balkans Animal Suffering’ (BAS).

We start with Serbia, but over the coming months will be producing other categories along the same lines which cover other Balkans states such as Macedonia.

The aim is for the two sites, SAV and BAS to be used in conjunction with each other – SAV will continue to publish global animal welfare issues in addition to those in the Balkans, whilst BAS will solely be an archive and direct link source to campaigns and data originally detailed on SAV.  As declared, there will be a selection of new previously unpublished photographs in some of the posts.

Please give us time to get all this up and running correctly; there is a lot of work for a very small team and so things will gradually appear over the months rather than all being published on the first day.

SAV will continue to be updated also whenever time and manpower allows.

Enjoy finding your way around the ‘Balkans Animal Suffering’ site; if it was a perfect world full of people who respect and care for animals then there would be no need for ANY of this to be done; but a perfect world it is not and animal suffering happens everywhere.  The aim of BAS is to show the situation in the Balkans with the hope that Balkans governments will change their attitude to animal suffering and adopt better welfare policies and legislation, especially for the reduction of stray and roaming animals.

Regards SAV.
