Serbia: Felix News March 2017 – Urgent Repairs Are Needed, Can You Help Please ?

 

There are a lot of cat appeals and things going on at the moment.

As you know, we have tried to support Jasna and Danika at ‘Felix’ shelter in Serbia for many years.  Felix helps take in cats from the streets and provide them with a forever home at the shelter, where they get great food, warmth, a safe place to live and they feel love and attention, often for the first time in their lives.

But like all shelters; daily upkeeps for facilities and the animals is huge.  This is where we now step in – to try and help get some support for much needed updates.  Felix has been having a few problems recently covering all of its costs; and without support of a regular good quality Kibble food supply from Denmark (UFFAC) over the last few months; things could have been a lot worse.  In addition, the Winter has been bad with temperatures often down to -25 degrees; so the gas tank has been working overtime to keep the cats warm.  Money is required here also to keep the gas tank topped up.

8 of the 9 youngsters taken in last year have already been sterilised, and the last cat has to recover from sickness before he is able to be neutered also.  Vet costs also add up.

Jasna informs us that the outside fence is literally falling apart, as can be seen in the photographs.  This is a big job and will probably cost around 3000 Euros.  It is a concern as at the moment, anyone can open the gates and approach the cats – and as we know, not everyone always has the best of intentions !

All the fence posts need to be buried underground and strengthened with concrete; after that they should be rebuilt around the thick steel poles in the middle so they won’t crumble and deteriorate in the years to come. The same goes for the low walls between the pillars. The gates must also be replaced and the ancient iron fence badly needs cleaning and polishing.  It is a big job which sadly costs big money.

So we are putting out an appeal to everyone asking if they can help; both with a donation and also by sharing this link to as many places as possible.  It could end up getting to someone rich who can help cover all the costs needed – so please pass this link / info around.

Below we are providing all the links to Felix if you can help out in any way.  We know that we are nearly always asking for donations; but many of the facilities we support are the only places that have ever given a loving home and food and heating to many animals that lived pitiful lives on the streets.

Please help if you can – and please pass on this link far and wide.

Thank you – SAV – for our friends at shelter ‘Felix’.

Here are some pictures of some of the residents; and also the sad state of the walls and fence that we have talked about earlier.

Urgent: help for old Serbian couple and their 60+ strays

The Story

61 cats, 7 dogs and an elderly couple need urgent help.

Jelka and Branko live in Pancevo, a town close to the Serbian capital Belgrade. They’re both 65+ and not very well off, sometimes not having enough food for themselves, they go without in order to ensure the animals are fed in order to give them a better life than the one they had on the streets of Pancevo.

Luckily the very kind soul and animal rescuer Slavica happened upon them and is now helping them with the animals. Feeding them, heating the house in winter in order to keep them all warm as Serbia has extreme temperatures in the winter, spaying & neutering and getting the animals vaccinated or to the vets if they are sick is very time and money consuming. Especially because no one has a car and it is 4 bus rides away.

A small facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/306259319732027/) is helping Slavica, Jelka and Branko with a bit of money monthly but it is not enough to cover everything that is needed.

Things seem to get worse instead of getting better. Branko had a stroke and it is still unsure if he will survive. A new law requires all cats to be chipped and vaccinated incurring more costs, the fence is broken, etc… Slavica, Jelka and Branko need you to help them and would be forever grateful for any donations.

Serbia: Horse Rescue Shelter – Please Crosspost Facebook Page If Possible Thank You.

We have been contacted by Ana in Serbia; who wrote to us on behalf of her friend who runs a horse shelter in Serbia.  Here is the link to the shelters Facebook page:

 

https://www.facebook.com/starobrdo/  

We are trying to currently look into existing Serbia legislation regarding horse welfare, as it not something we have done before.  But we have liaised with Ana and said that even if Serbian horse law existed; in our opinion and experience, the Serbian authorities would ignore it just the same as they ignore legislation for stray dogs and cats.

Ana (being Serbian) is aware that the Serbian government could do a lot better when it comes to all animal welfare, but we are trying to help the horse shelter by giving out its Facebook link:

 

https://www.facebook.com/starobrdo/

We will also be putting the link onto SAV Facebook page, where we hope a lot more Serbian campaigners and supporters will become aware of the excellent work being done to give help and support to the equine population.

If you can help in any way with a donation, then it would be greatly appreciated. 

Even if you cannot donate, please just spread the link around so that more people are informed of this horse haven.

 

Thank you – SAV.

Dear Mark

Saving lives through school and community outreach 

animal-aid-unlimited-new-header

During the past month, our Compassion Education Team has given 10 presentations to 500 people, from primary school students to senior citizens, about how to help injured street animals, what are “animal rights,” reasons to go vegan, and what to do if you see cruelty.

aa-school

Above – Rajkishor inspires 7th graders,
Neha motivates Udaipur animal lovers, and students pet dogs for the first time!

In addition to video and power-point presentations we brought 60 students from a local school on a field-trip to Animal Aid where they pet dogs, donkeys and even cows, and for many, it was for the first time in their lives. It’s harder to be compassionate when you are afraid, so by helping children overcome their fear of animals we are helping them to connect and understand the feelings of animals so that they will help them.

 animal-aid-unlimited-new-header

We held our 13th Sunday colony meeting where we’ve so far talked to over 300 Udaipur animal lovers who are regular callers on our emergency helpline. The objective of our colony meetings is to grow Udaipur’s animal protection movement from a grass-roots level, by encouraging animal lovers to take part in our first-aid training program, educating them on how to use the law to protect animals from abuse, and motivating them to use their voice to speak for those who cannot.

Major Sahib’s crisis turns into the happiest ending…

We found him lying in anguish on the side of the street, gravely wounded and broken.

The side of his head was being eaten by maggots and his body had given up all hope. We could tell that he had been lying in the same place for many hours if not days, and we believe that if we hadn’t rescued him right when we did, that this is where he would have died.

We named him Major Sahib for a good reason-this old boy was a soldier for LIFE.

He may have been tottering on the edge, but he definitely wasn’t ready to say goodbye.

 

Too injured to move, but still wagging his tail…

When we first got the call to rescue this young street dog, we thought he only had the injury we could see above his eye.

But as soon as we came in close, we were shocked. There were deep lacerations across his inner thigh and belly that were covered in blood. We were told he had been hit by a vehicle.

Unable to stand when we found him, this little braveheart still wagged his tail when our rescuer Nandu lifted him into our ambulance.

Just watch this video to see his overflowing joy after making a full recovery.
