Lack Of Support Throws Whole Future Of Site Into Question.

14/3/16 – See text below. 

Unless there is more action, this site is now closed until further notice.

Rather than just keep asking for donations / money, we need to see Serbian shelters and activists come together and put pressure on the Serbian government.  Make the government comply with the laws of Serbia, by supplying food to animals in shelter, not killing them.  Most importantly, we need to see a clear national sterilisation programme (using EU money) instead of the current illegal catch and kill strategy adopted by the government and authorities.

When people start to see things change, then they may consider giving more donationsThe current situation cannot remain a bottomless barrel that money is put into with no visible return or actions.


Well after such a very good start, the petition has nose dived.


It simply says to us that there is not really much in the way of trying to do anything, such as a petition; if people are going to just sign it and then do nothing more.

Petitions need to be crossposted to as many supporters as can be contacted – friends, family, other ‘ar’ contacts etc.

To get nothing in the way of one signature in the last 24 hours or more is, well, a humiliation.


There is no point making efforts to get petitions created if people are not going to give them support.  Take a look at the pictures – ask yourselves, is this not worthy of something more than just signing a petition and doing nothing more ? – how many people have written a letter ?     – we gave contact details and even did a sample letter.


What do you want us to do ? – the whole bloody thing so that others do not even need to get involved !!

Annoyed ?

– more than.

Animal welfare campaigners ?

– I leave you to decide on that.

Future actions and the continuation of the SAV site ?

– debateable.

  1. We marathon runners always say: “Giving up is not allowed”!
    You start, and usually with a lot of hope.
    You’ve trained long months, you dream to make a good race.
    Pain, doubt, frustration always come on the road in a marathon.
    And again and again the same question: what did I do wrong again, why I’m so slow, why I’m everywhere woe?
    And usually we blame on ourselves: I have not trained properly, I have to bring more kilometers on the legs, I have to do more marathons a year.
    And ever closer you get to the target, the more the pain and the stronger the desire to give up.

    The easiest on a Marathon is to abandon.
    You’re tearing your starting number, and take the way back.
    And you stand back where you started few hours ago.
    You have not fought, you gave up.

    Every time I am plagued by the pain and the frustration in a marathon, I think of the animals for which I run.
    And I always run for the animals.

    For them that are transported injured, half dead in Trucks.
    For them who are criminally kept in farms.
    For all suffering animals.

    People have embraced me and said that they “run” on my site.
    And so the pain and frustration went by, but not the fight.
    The struggle continues, until the goal.
    We almost never entered the finish line as the winner, just as a fighter.
    Often it hurts to have just a few campaigners on the page.
    But there are good times, there are bad times, that has taught us the experience, that is human.
    That’s why we fight and we will always continue to fight.
    Because “Giving up is not allowed”.

    Regards to you dear Mark, and to alls

  2. A few days ago I contacted a friend who comes from Greece.
    She lives in Germany.
    I sent her the petition by mail, she signed it immediately.
    I asked her if she knows a web page for Animals in Greece, she said “yes”!
    And then she posted the petition, in Greek, on this web page.
    With success!
    60 signatures have come from the country until now!!
    Each of you can do the same with other countries like Italy, Spain, France.
    It is important, that it is published in the native language of the country, then it works!!
    Anyway, with Greece it has worked!
    Finally, if we live in Europe, we must have not only disadvantages but also advantages!

    • Thank you Venus – great work !
      I am really into the work of Animal Aid Unlimited in India – they do such amazing rescues and medical procedures on animals it is incredible. I have just posted 4 or 5 videos showing their work onto the site within the last few days – please check them out; fantastic videos and a positive end in every case.
      Just type ‘Animal Aid Unlimited’ into the search box at the top right of the home page to see all the posts and videos we have. Such a fantastic organisation – please support them with a donation if you are able – Thanks Mark.
