The Story

This You Caring is set up to cover all expenses for pension fees for 45 dogs in April 2017, rescued from the streets by Dalida Kozlic. 45 dogs are placed in large groups in few pensions where prices are lower, but Dalida’s father must buy and deliver food to pensions as well as to drive dogs to veterinarians. Also, few rescues have sponsors who pay costs of pensions every month. Those dogs are not included in this YouCaring.

They need this to keep them safe, fed, healthy, off the streets, and away from the illegal dog catchers.

Dalida is a lawyer from Sarajevo who has been involved in protection of animals for more than 15 years and she is one of the rescuers and activists with most experience in Bosnia. Also, she was one of the lobbyists who were involved in legislating of Animal Protection and Welfare Act in Bosnia, in 2009.

Dalida investigates cases of animal abuse, as well as cases of obstructions to implement Animal Protection and Welfare Act. 

Her activities are focused on enforcement of the Animal Protection and Welfare Act, presenting practical legal solutions in animal welfare area, collecting of evidences, filing criminal reports, and constant lobbying that Bosnian authorities implement the Animal Protection and Welfare Act. Dalida also acts as a liason with international animal welfare advocates.

She follows all activities of police, the prosecutor's office, and veterinary inspectors, in order to prosecute and punish people who torture and kill animals. She also participates in media debates about animal welfare.

The biggest focus of her activities is to stop illegal dog catching service in Sarajevo at the moment. All details about atrocities that happen to stray animals in Bosnia can be read on http://inmemoryofvucko.org/

More details about Dalida's legal and rescue work can be read on:

Dalida has 100 animals in her care. Number of saved animals is constantly changing due to finding homes for them, but as well as to new cases of injured, sick or abused dogs.

It is important to emphasise that Dalida has 48 dogs and 8 cats at her home. Dalida and parents take care of 50 animals without any help at their small shelter. They only raise funds to buy food for those animals. It is very difficult and stressful for them to take care of 46 dogs and 8 cats every day since they must check the situation in all pensions as well as supply pensions with the food, not to mention and that they drive all animals to veterinarians, deal with administration for animals, prepare animals for transport, take care of sick animals and try to leave a normal life at the same time. 


1) 29x50=1400 Euros
2) 16x35=560 Euros

TOTAL: 2010 Euros + 100 Euros for PayPal fees = 2110 Euros

IMPORTANT:  *For all dogs that are placed in pensions, Dalida must deliver the food to the pensions.

Thanks to an amazing lady Sandra Jensen (AWAB) and her blog In Memory of Vucko we have an opportunity to raise awareness about horrors that happen to stray animals in Bosnia. I wrote this article from bottom of my heart and from all my experiences https://inmemoryofvucko.org/2017/04/23/world-stray-animals-day-in-bosnia-and-herzegovina/

My dear friends, thank you so much for your help and support. I am responsible for 100 animals and because of that I appreciate your help so much especially since my family is their only hope and we can't protect them without your help.
Animals in Bosnia are hunted, poisoned, tortured and killed every day. They only have rescuers to help them and my responsibility is to rescued animals fed and safe.

I do my best to keep you updated and post as many updates and pictures on following links
