Shelter ‘Azil Alex’ – Subotica, Serbia

Things have been happening at EPAR shelter.

This is a dog and cat rescue facility which gets no support or funding from the authorities or government, despite many attempts to have funding as a rescue shelter for stray animals from the streets.

Slavica covers all the costs herself.  If you can help with a donation, please go to the end of this post for further information.

A member of the public called about a dog who was in the forest; tied to a tree with wire around his neck.

The injury to his neck caused by the wire.

After the wire had been removed and the dog had been taken back to care at EPAR shelter.  You can clearly see the wire which was wrapped around his neck.

Another call was made by people about a dog from the street who had found cover and who was now living in an old garage with no door.  You can see her cowering under the old tractor.

These people wanted to call the shinters to catch and take the dog – to kill her;, but then a call was made to EPAR shelter.  EPAR arrived and rescued her; she in now living at the EPAR shelter.  You can see her here being rescued by Adrijana, one of the EPAR team. 

Back at the EPAR shelter, building work is happening; new wood and bags of cement are being purchased to make new corners for the new dog houses.

Because it is very hot in summer and the dogs need plenty of fresh, clean water; new drums are selected ready to be cut down into new large drinking bowls.

When the drums are cut down to size; they make clean new water dishes for all the dogs at EPAR shelter.  Below are just a few ready for dogs and the hot days of summer.

And below are a series of pictures of some of the residents at EPAR shelter; dogs which have been saved from the streets and killing by the shinter teams.

Daily costs continue – food, new shelters, drinking dishes, medicines, building materials;
