The Story

This You Caring is set up to cover all expenses for pension fees for 45 dogs in October, 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. Dalida also has rescues in pensions that have special veterinary care, where food and all services are included in the price. For those rescues, Dalida sets up a separate 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 46 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.

Please help us to assist Dalida Kozlic, one of the few people in Bosnia who is attempting to make a difference for ALL animals of the country. She has been fighting for the protection of animals for over 15 years, and is instrumental in the fact that Bosnia actually has an animal welfare law.

We are actively trying to find homes for as many of her rescues as possible, and if you can help with this, please email her at [email protected] or via her Facebook Profile: Dalida Kozlic

My dear Sandra Jensen(AWAB) published an article that I have written  about by law that will enable establishing of national pet registry...

After years of lobbying and legal work of so many rescuers and people who help us including my dear Sandra Jensen, who has written this updated and AWAB, we have achived one of our aims.
The BiH Council of Ministers passed a long awaited by-Law on identification and keeping registry of dogs, cats.....
It's a critically important law for the implementation and endorsement of a registry and central database at the state level for owned companion animals.....and as such a pre-requisite to fuller implementation of the laws against animal abuse, abandoning pets etc. Who knows how long will it take for the State Vet office to put into place an operational database and to ensure local level vet station endorsement and data flow, but at least the first formal step is finally in place!
