Rescue of dog tangled in soccer net.

Tangled up from head to toe, this precious little boy was absolutely baking in the sun, caught in a sports net. The kids who called us for his rescue were too afraid of dogs to cut the rope themselves. But their fears were so unfounded-this little cutypie couldn’t be more affectionate and loving. It turned out he also had the beginnings of mange, so we scooped him up and took him back for a medicated bath and some extra hugs.

Please donate, so that a predicament doesn’t become a tragedy

Terror turned into trust: injured puppy rescued

Felix knew one thing. If you scream as loud as you can, it might save your life. And it worked! People heard this devastated little sweetheart and called us to the rescue without even knowing what was wrong with the weeping puppy.

It turned out he had really deep wounds on his hind leg–maybe caused by a car accident. We scooped him up and got him pain medicine as soon as possible, then sedated him in order to clean and stitch his wounds. This little angel was terrified by people when he arrived. But here, his pain subsided, gentle hands touched him and he found love. It only took 2 weeks for the stitches to be removed-the hair where he’d been shaved hadn’t even grown back yet. And something else happened to him from his hospitalization. Felix grew happy.

Please donate so that cries for help, get help.

Rope almost severed donkey’s foot

The rope almost killed him…

Laying in terrible pain, this sweet donkey’s leg was covered in blood. He was struck down by the cruelty of an ignorant, negligent owner who tied two of his legs together to keep him from running away. In his struggle to free himself, the rope cut through his flesh and muscle. His complete recovery is a marvel, and because of his lion-hearted courage, we named this sweetheart Leon.

You can be a guardian angel for an abused animal. Please donate.

Animals help us know the difference between what is authentic, and what is fake, or phoney, or artifice. When an animal looks at us he or she tells us the whole truth, and nothing but the truth of their feeling. And their truths are sweet and simple. The desire for a soft word, a kind touch, a tasty morsel. The desire to be free to wander and choose for themselves what might or might not happen, during the next 20 minutes. If you’ve ever reached to touch the face of a dog or a donkey or horse who jerks back her head in retreat, she’s not shunning you. She’s simply revealing the fact–the plain fact–that someone before you touched her in a way that hurt her, frightened her. And as we all know–when an animal lets us approach, get close, touch kindly, whisper softly, there’s a truth in that allowance; he or she is saying something like this: I accept you as you are. For me, you are perfect as you are. Whenever you help an animal your kindness–for him or her–is all there is.

With our deepest thanks for all you do and are for animals, 





England: Donations; What Donations ???

From today; 22/3; there will be NO MORE appeals on SAV.

If people want to give anything, then they go to SAV Facebook and do it independently.

For years (like 12) we have tried to ask Serbian groups and shelters to unite and fight against the corrupt and illegal actions of the Serbian government and authorities.

When people see a fight against the illegal system then maybe they will give money to help the shelters.

People will not give, and give, and give; only to see very little united fight in return.  This way it will never change – shelters keep asking for money; expecting people to donate; and yet they do not get together to form an opposition to the corrupt and illegal activities happening in Serbia.

From now there will be no more appeals on SAV unless we see Serbian shelters and campaigners unite against the government.  12 years of asking for this and we have not really got anywhere.

From now, SAV (this site) will possibly only be producing new data once or twice a week.  We are fed up doing a lot on the site for very little positive action.  There is no point us trying to do appeals and petitions etc when we see nothing in the way of return action.  Is this not what caused a lot of German organisations to call it a day in Serbia over the years ?

From now- things change at SAV.


This post will stay as the header page for ?? – we are now in no rush to do any updates or appeals.

They don’t seem to get any real response; so what is the point ?


22/3/18.  Appeal update.


Regarding our recent appeal to help KUCI, KIKI and LELA:

We have now managed to secure help for the dogs through to the end of April.

Here is a mail we have had from Jasna; we have edited the mail to remove names of helpers / donors:

Pozdrav Mark,

thank you for the appeal.  I wrote to them (German donors) and with gratitude asked whether I can use that donation for April because it will definitely be the same and necessary. They were arranged so I will use it to actually cover the March and the announcement will remain for March to reach April… you’ve helped me a lot and now it can be a bit easier.

I’ll publicly thank everyone on the group because I’m very grateful for the help.

So, March and April will be covered.

So now we have managed (with the help of a very specific few donors) to secure help for the dogs through until the end of April.

But we are very unhappy that despite the appeal going out on SAV and also SAV Facebook; effectively reaching over 1300 members on Facebook and around 300+ supporters on SAV EACH DAY;  we only got donations from 2 supporters ! – Bilkis Satar and Thordur Gislason.

We thank them very much for their kind help  –  Thordur always gives a very worthwhile amount and he donates to many appeals very regularly; so we thank him for his support once again.


All we asked was that people give a few Euros to help save lives – donate instead of buying that take away coffee in the morning for example – what 2,3 or 4 Euros ? – small amounts that would have all added up to help save lives.  Instead; we got very little support apart from ourselves and the 2 people mentioned above.  The rest we had to cover ourselves and with a combined response via a specific German supporters  who wishes to remain anonymous.

One really has to ask if it is worth taking time to put together all the appeals on SAV and SAV Facebook when nobody can be bothered to give anything back in return to help.  Yes, people expect to come to the site and see new posts there all the time; which is all compiled on a voluntary basis; and which takes time and effort.  We do it to try and raise attention of animal issues; and for all our work we get nothing in return – animals continue to be hungry and they continue to be cold and in need of forever homes.


Is the response the same for all the petitions we publish ? – nothing ?

Where are all the ‘animal people’ – the visitors and members of SAV Facebook ?

Donating the price of a cup of coffee to help save lives is not too mush to ask, is it ?

Please, next time we do appeals; do not leave the task of sorting the problem to just a few – give a little; and together the ‘littles’ add up quickly to reach the desired amount.


We don’t do appeals just because we enjoy doing them – we do them with the hope that supporters and members will give just a little in return !

Please Help – yes he is asking for donations.




Serbia: Time Is Running Out To Help Kiki, Kuci and Lela. We Have Tried To Help – Where Are You ?

We have donated twice to help here – and we are the only donors.

Why ? – where are all the global animal people ?

Is a 5 or 10 Euro donation too much to ask of people.

Small donations add up to the required amount.

We are not picking money off our money bonsai; but we are trying to help.

Where are all the animal supporters who visit this site every day ?

Please give and give now, before the end of the month.



Help for KUCI, KIKI and LELA

Dear friends, Thanks to you and your unselfish help, these beautiful dogs remain on safe place and with a food. Situation we have is that we need help for them every month. February has passed covered with all your financially help and support. 

March is almost here and we will need all your help and support again. They know they are calm and peaceful, because they have friends in you and your help. Nobody is easy, months are coming, and obligations are there. Their existence on safe is always questionable, but I always effort myself to secure them safe place and food for normal life. Luckily, without you all this would be impossible. We need help for March:

– KIKI 40 euros for accommodation and 20 euros for food 

– KUCI 40 euros for accommodation and 20 euros for food 

– LELA 20 euros for accommodation and 20 euros for food 

Sum 160 euros

Serbia: Overdebt for Food, Medicine and Kennels! – Please Help Thank You.

Overdebt for food, medicine and kennels!

From the beginning of this year stray dogs in Bor are facing one of the hardest periods; Cruelly low temperatures of minus 20 degrees and lower, hungry, frozen, helpless and left to fend for themselves on the streets of the town where unfortunately most of the residents absolutely do not care about them … among that crowd of people who is considering  stray  dogs as the ‘ugly’ part of the city which they should get rid of, there are people like Joja.  

Many people know the story about this man of enormous heart, his daily sacrifice  and unselfish willpower to help every single injured stray at every moment. During this Siberian winter many dog houses for strays were taken, many of which have not yet been paid, large amounts of food from pet shop that was not paid, stray puppies have been  vaccinated, which was left unpaid,  a couple of stray females have been spayed, etc.. so much debts as usual, and it is necessary as soon as possible to settle them, so that we can continue our work ..

This fundraiser below caters for the shortfall for kennel, food fees and vet services, which we are not able to cover..

Every single person involved  makes a big difference.

There are no happy endings without your help! 


Please donate now to help – any amount helps no matter how small – Thank You.

I always enjoy watching the excellent videos from AAU; yes they always start off badly showing animals suffering so much; but you know you are always going to get a wonderful finish (and really happy animals) thanks to the teamwork and dedication of the superb crew at AAU India.

Here are a few more videos of their amazing work.  Please give anything you can to help support their work – Thanks – Mark – SAV.


Dog starving from broken jaw makes an incredible recovery!

She would never have eaten again without surgery after a vehicle hit her and broke several of her teeth and fractured her lower jaw. Locals from the village saw her laying in the same place for more than a day and realised something was wrong. Our rescuers found her curled up in a ball, disoriented and unable to stand. She probably hadn’t eaten or had water in many days. We brought the sad little girl back to Animal Aid where we treated her for dehydration and pain. We then placed a wire in her jaw to heal the fracture. And so began the new adventure of Dory’s life to come. Watch the transformation of a dying dog into a playful angel.

With your help, they can heal. Please donate.


Sweetest street dog beats cancer

Watch Olivia’s amazing transformation! This sweetheart was suffering from a painful and life-threatening condition and needed urgent help. Her head was massively swollen and pus and blood drained from her eye almost continuously. A cytology revealed it to be malignant cancer-a transmissible venereal tumour in the mucous membranes surrounding her eye that was so extensive it had begun to damage her skull as well. Luckily this kind of tumour can be cured with chemotherapy treatment and we immediately began a six-week course. She was quite the fighter and responded amazingly to her treatment. Meet beautiful Olivia today–our street dog cancer survivor.


 Please donate to give street animals a fighting chance.



Dog hiding with terrible wound rescued

Although Jupiter, a street dog, was hiding underneath the stairs of a house of strangers, his trusting response to his rescuers made us wonder if on some level he was just waiting for help. His sorrowful eyes told us everything we needed to know about his pain. We hurried him back to the hospital and onto the treatment table where we discovered that the wound on his neck–probably a dog bite infested with maggots–was actually even bigger than we had suspected. Debriding the wound, flushing, removing maggots and wrapping it snuggly with padded bandages would be the first of many days of treatment. But Jupiter seemed to know he was on the path of healing from the first touch by the rescue team. Meet Jupiter after six weeks of wound care. He’s definitely a new boy–and an angel through and through.

 To turn the hopeless to happy, Please donate.
