Today, Dalida Kozlic
and Fahrudin Caki Bravo
were guests on a BHT1 TV-show, where they spoke openly and honestly about the Kanton Sarajevo government's ongoing campaign to catch/kill the stray dogs.
The campaign was launched few days ago and its goal is permanent removal of about 7000 strays from the streets of Sarajevo.
Since the launch, many dogs have disappeared without a trace so there is a reasonable suspicion they were killed. The rest have been placed in public shelters, which are now overcrowded and dogs are fighting each others to death for food and water, confined to a small space outdoors, in 35°C heat.
Many dogs have been euthanized for being "sick", without any official diagnosis or a proof. No one from public or news media have been granted access to the premises or the records, so it is impossible to establish the reasons for, or the number of dogs euthanized.
The public just stands by silently, threatened by authorities' pledge to punish everyone who confronts the dog catchers.
There is not much difference between what's happening in Sarajevo now and the infamous Yulin Festival in China, but not too many people are aware of what's happening in Sarajevo.
Is the number not large enough to get the whole world's attention?!
This is a last-minute appeal to save their lives and force the government to start treating the strays humanely. Please, HELP!
THIS BREAKS MY HEART AND I JUST HOPE SOMEHOW CELINE'S TEAM WILL SEE THIS..
CANCER SCARES THE HELL OUT OF ME
ONE OF THE TWINS IS STAGE 4 Hodgkin's lymphoma and her dream... her DREAM IS JUST TO MEET CELINE
I don't know any way to contact you and have been reaching out to
fellow employees of mine for help as well but I would like to leave this
here if I may... My daughter Jacqueline has been diagnosed with stage 4
Hodgkin's lymphoma she is 13 years
old... She has a twin sister and they both are HUGE fans of yours!! They
have been thru so much in the past 6 months (chemotherapy and
radiation) and I would really love to surprise them with an opportunity
to just meet you for a moment after one of your shows... We normally
take a family vacation every year but of course this year has been very
different and difficult with Jacqueline's diagnosis in January so we
have not been able to do anything and she has been embarrassed with the
loss of her hair, eyebrows and eyelashes to do much... I am not asking
for tickets or a hotel room as I am more than happy to pay for ALL of
the expenses myself but if they could just say hello to you it would
mean the world to her and her sister. I know you probably get a ton of
requests from people all over the world for things just like this but
again I am taking a shot in the dark and posting this here hoping
someone could possibly reach out to you or has a contact at Caesars
where this may reach you. I would love to surprise them and attend your
first show back in Vegas in Sept 20. We were looking at tickets in line
last night and this would ONLY be for them no mom or dad just a very
special time for them. We talked last night and they said they would
like to give you flowers at one of your shows! So that is all I am
asking if anyone out there has any connections or any way to contact
Celine please message me in my Facebook page I sincerely appreciate any
and all help to make this dream come true! Thank you all and God bless!
Sincerely, Mark Golosinski
Hi, I guess this will be a soap box time for me.. you see I'm a little pissed off (better then being pissed on I guess.)
Anyway, I went to celinedion.com when I came on line and saw where it had been posted that Celine would live feed 4 of her tour songs.. from Paris.. I was sad I had missed it live, but went to see the site at her Facebook page celinedion. In reading some of the comments from I think English speaking people - they were complaining.they could not understand her.... WHAT COMPLAINING about seeing a show that costs over 100-200.00 usd and up to see.. and the stupid complaint was they did not understand what she was saying.. WELL YA.... the tour is in Paris France, where they speak French not English.. HER NATIVE LANGUAGE!!! DA!..
Now since people do not normally say what country they are from, I am assuming they are Americans.. Although, I have been around the world lived in different countries while in the military..I'm a retired SSGT US Army and I went where ever my id allowed....
I have never met a people so into themselves to think everything must be in American English.. I am ashamed of the comments, this was streamed at the expense of Celine's pocket not thiers.. and it was not cheaply done... and it was to the French not English speaking people.. be pleased you got to see it at all....
So I must say to Celine on the behalf of other English speaking people, but mainly on my behalf... I apologize. We are a demanding sort of people, descending down from people who came to an unknown land.. unhappy with the countries we left.. and determined to be the best in the world.. we are not, but we try to make others believe it.
Dear Dear Celine, Please don't make us wait to long for a new English album.. I do not know about all Americans.. I know about me.. I want a new album - I love your voice but I respect and admire the woman you are, the mother & step mother, Sibling, daughter, widow, and friend you are!!
Don't make us wait to long dear... we need real music, the ballads.. you give us.
Thank you for reading this and please know I live for the songs on Utube your other followers share..
Thank you for allowing them...French or English does not matter to me it is the voice and the connection to emotions you reflect when you sing.
I could go on forever, but then you would know how much I idolize you, and at 71 that is sort of embarrassing..!
I cryed daily when Rene died. Last year they found a one centimeter Estrogen positive breast cancer tumor. He was diagnosed with his cancer three times it petrified me.. and the thought of you losing the physical Rene..made me cry every time I listened to you. But you gave an interview and said although he was physically no longer with you .. he was inside of you..and I stopped feeling sorry for me and realized so far I'm cancer free.. But it was you dear your interview that helped me.. Thank you!
And wow how you talked about up with your twins.. what a wonderful way to explain him being gone from their lives...
All this makes me just love you more.. but these are just some of the reasons You my dear are much more then a singer/entertainer... thank you!
Now When I'm depressed I just play my albums of you on repeat and continue to try raising funds for animal rescue in Eastern Europe!
Most people are not evil, but most are so involved in their own lives; they do not see evil!
Celine in one of her interviews, talks about Rene's use of the words I love you, and the first time she heard him say I love you to his mother; She realized how much she was missing by not acknowledging the words I love you - to all her family and changed then and there. In this interview she says the world needs to acknowledge love for each other, that is the only way that there will be true peace.
I agree it is the only thing that will change the world we live in... When you can accept that you love others outside your bubble, then and only then will you see the evil in the world and work to change it.
When you see Evil being done, you must intervene. You must stop it. In so doing you are taking a step to changing the world.
Love of our fellow beings, Love of others outside our bubbles, is what rescuing is..and when you rescue....
YOU CHANGE THE WORLD!
I'm not the faithful Christian some people claim to be.. But I know somewhere in the bible it says,
"WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO THE LEAST OF THESE - YOU HAVE DONE UNTO ME"
That is telling me we are supposed to help each other, HELP THE OTHER BEINGS CREATED BY GOD, THAT IS WHAT RESCUING IS..
Consider donating your time and energy to your local shelter (USA) or pension (Europe). Money is not the only thing needed. The more you expose the cruelty of treatment in shelters, by showing love and caring for the animals, the sooner change for the good will occur... There is change when exposed to love.
Most of the time, change for good comes slowly and change that is harmful happens in the blink of an eye.... BUT WE MUST TRY OR CHANGE WILL NEVER HAPPEN!
REMEMBER IN THIS WORLD where we have a choice REMEMBER TO DO GOOD WHEN EVER YOU CAN!
What is a Virtual Adopter?? A person who has promised to give a certain amount of money, every so many days. to a particular rescue for a particular animal. It can be the complete amount of money to take care of the animal, or part of the costs. That depends on the person who becomes a VA.
Dedication to giving this money must be foremost on the VA's mind as the life of that animal depends on this money!
I am a VA to Simon, and Sol, Help For Furries; Garfield, Andjeo Sarajevo / Edina Pasic and Number 119 of http://vucjakden.com/sponsor-a-dog/
Being steady in your volunteer donations helps relieve the tension each rescuer has when they don't know if they will get enough donations to pay the bills.. That is scary...
PLEASE CONSIDER BECOMING A VA EVEN IF YOU ONLY GIVE ONE EURO A MONTH, THAT IS JUST THAT MUCH MORE THE PERSON DOES NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT.
THANK YOU FOR READING

This is a Shelter in Serbia that is worth looking at....these poor dogs would have already died, been placed in shelters to be killed and Dejan Gacic has saved them.....but to feed these dogs weekly is a task and there are days the dogs only eat every other day...and old food, bread is mixed with dry dog food to assist in feeding them. This is when we are asking if you can sponsor one dog per month....for 25 euro/$27.00 usd per month....please look at these beautiful faces and if you can sponsor one, please let me know or contact Chris Eddy. We can make this happen and these dogs are so beautiful and so loved....they have a 2nd chance now - where there was no hope for them at all....Please help and please share.....

This link will explain how to become a VA for a dog's food... PLEASE GO READ -- ONLY - - 25E each dog!! http://vucjakden.com/sponsor-a-dog/ ~~~ He is asking for Virtual Adopters for the price of food only, which is just 25e a month for one dog. Please help and this type of emergency would stop! ~~
GAS MONEY/ TRAVEL FEES SOMETHING NOT COMMONLY THOUGHT ABOUT.. BUT DESPERATELY NEEDED at times
2. MISKA'S HELP FOR FURRIES She travels to escort animals to forever or foster homes. She never asks for money to help with this..... But it costs her personally 25 euros a day explained - bed 15.00 per day, food 10.00 per day...
Thus the gas money needed during visits to collect the animals, go out and feed animals take animals to vets all must be donated.
I'd say an average of 10e a day would cover this need. Please help by donating.. PAYPAL ACCOUNT: email@example.com read about her here: https://www.facebook.com/HelpForFurries PLEASE leave message what your donation is for.. no need to confirm this paypal account. ~~~~~~~~
