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.

Update from Serbia: With your help the cats and dogs had a lovely Easter holiday as Slavica was able to buy good food and all were able to fill their stomachs. For a video and more pictures, please check out https://www.facebook.com/groups/306259319732027/

Dear supporters, all the money that was raised in March was sent to Slavica, Jelka and Branko minutes ago. It will help with the vaccinations, s/n and food. Thank you soooo much, your donations will make quite a difference to the animals and the people!
