Virtual Adoption

Virtual Adoption

Nov 18, 2014
This programme is made to help and manage Virtual Adoptions for some of the dogs AWAB assists.

When you become Virtual Adoptor for a rescue from Bosnia Herzegovina, you will not only help keep the animal safe and off the streets, but will create a special bond. We understand that not everyone can adopt; which is why becoming a Virtual Adopter for one of the rescues whose pictures and story touched you is a wonderful alternative to adoption.The bond formed through this virtual adoption program will keep you connected to the progress of your chosen rescue, and hopefully, you will see them find their wonderful forever home. The ultimate goal is to keep them safe.

If you want to become a VA:1.  Look at the list of animals below, choose which one(s) you'd like to support2. Contact Encarni Erzsébet to let her know you are joining the VA programe and what animals you are supporting: https://www.facebook.com/anj.encarnie NOTE: IT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO CONTACT ENCARNI DIRECTLY IF YOU CHOOSE TO BE A VIRTUAL ADOPTER, NOT as a comment on this note or on a thread on the animal's photograph.3. VA payments go to our Paypal account:  donations@awabosnia.org
***IT IS VERY IMPORTANT  to mark your donation as : VA+dog(or cat) name(S).***

Most dogs need 120* euros per month to stay safe off the streets, so we hope to set 6 VAs per dog at 20 EU each. We understand that not everyone can manage 20 EU per month, so you can also choose your own amount that you can donate per month and we will continue to look for VA's for that dog until the "goal"is reached. So, for example : Person1 : 20€/month Person2: 10€/month Person3: 7€month TOTAL : 37€/120€ 
Cats are 65 EU per month.*There are some special cases where they need a bit more than others, (i.e demodex treatment, pet hotel)

4. Let Encarni know approximately what date of the month you will make your payment this will help her keep track of things.

5. Normally Encarni will send out a reminder either by email or pm, so please let her know if you would like this too, and on what date of the month you'd like her  to send it.

LissyLee





The last moments of LissyLee who could have been a  Sarajevo Street Dog.
A story by  nelda l. percival

It is dark and cold, the last time I ate was three days ago when that big dog dropped that bread and I gobbled it down while he chased me. He bit me while I squirmed under that cement wall. It still hurts. I wish momma was here, I could cuddle up to her warm body and she would clean that hole in my hip. Wallowing in the dirt stopped the bleeding, but maybe there were bad things there..

Momma where are you, I whimper. she left to get food. Momma you wouldn’t leave me alone would you? I whimper more but they may find me...I’m scared; those people with the poles chased me again today. I heard the big dog screaming, I think they got him. I haven’t smelled him since they left. 
Momma said there were nice people who will give us food, but how do you tell which are nice and who will hit and kick me. Johnny my brother was hit by a car I saw his head splatter as that monister ran over him…
Momma where are you… I’m so tired and hungry and cold.. Please, come home, I want you so badly. I’m so tired.... my eyes close and I sleep.

Oh there’s Momma I feel her body beside me, she is so warm and she is kissing me. I open my eyes; I love my Momma! Johnny's here too and he isn't hurt..

Momma where were you? It’s ok honey we will go to the bridge together and you will never hurt or be hungry and cold again… I love you baby come on, we need to go now. 

Momma can we play there.. Yes Honey we can play and no one will ever hurt you or Johnny again.. LissyLee closes her eyes and their specters fade into the rainbow...
~~~
THIS COULD BE THE STORY OF ANY PUPPY BORN IN SARAJEVO...
Will you help pay the shelter fees so Andjeo Sarajevo can save more babies… Their life's depend on our donations.
Please help! Donate at Paypal: andjeosarajevo@gmail.com tell her what it is for - food ? shelter? Rent car? New kitty? Use where needed most??
Save a life and give


oh please someone help Andjeo Sarajevo BiH the rescue group save these animals..they need donations .. they need help..
I dream that some really kind person, someone with money just says to hell with this and buys the needed car, and a farm and builds kennels and cat shelters in buildings and Edina can just keep rescuing everyone of these babies...
BUT THAT IS A DREAM... FACE REALITY!!!
Reality is that without the pennies you send the Euros you send the pounds you send every animal she has would be back out on the street and Edina's wonderful heart would just dry up from all her tears she would shed..
Reality is WITHOUT YOU there is no way to rescue, no way to save these Angels of God...
please any amount helps but thinking - oh some one will help they don't need my change.. hurts us ... and we do really do! NEED YOU !!
you can donate via Paypal: andjeosarajevo@gmail.com

Me-and-You





ANIMALS DO HAVE A VOICE
If you ignore their suffering, I will remind you of it.
If you don't understand them then I will translate.
If you don't hear them, I'll be their voice.
You may silence them, but you can not silence me as long as I live!
THAT VOICE IS ME and that Voice is YOU
                                                                                                                    


Andjeo Sarajevo is a registered animal rescue group in the city of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. This group has its fingers in many different areas. And I have created different youcaring pages for these needs. But it is hard to give all the different needs the same amount of coverage.

There are three things that top my list:



  1. Keeping the animals already rescued safe in shelters. WHY – because they have come to trust humans over the months of retention in the shelter and would be easy kills for the DOG CATCHER UNDER THE NEW KILLING LAWS.
AndjeoSarajevo BiH also gets help from AWABosina.Org a wonderful group who helps lot of others in The Balkans. AWAB has a Virtual Adoption program where you as a donator wants to help a particular animal. You do a virtual adoption promising to pay so much a month to the support of that animal. It can be anything from 0.01 to the full bill each month. If interested Please visit: http://hey-you-info.blogspot.com/2014/07/andjeo-sarajevo-bih-reasons-i-help.html  direct information is here:  https://www.facebook.com/notes/animal-welfare-advocates-for-bosnia/virtual-adoption/548160965303790  is the Group AWAB's list of dogs/cats they help.


  1. Next is the much needed car.  This group used the family car, until it was used up and I really mean used up. Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country in the Balkan Mountains of Eastern Europe. Sarajevo is in the middle of the Balkan Mountains. It is a small valley with a river running through it. The center of the city is like most cities tall cement and steel buildings and busy streets. The rest of the city is like a country town with homes and yards and apartments and parks and then you get to the factories and rural areas. –BUT SARAJEVO IS a BIG city, It is 54.63 sq miles (141.5 km²) I cannot walk that even in a few days. It is a valley yes but it has ups and downs just like any other valley in the middle of the mountains. THE CAR WHEN RETIRED COULD NOT PULL THE HILLS MUCH LESS THE MOUNTAINS. The mechanics said it would cost more to repair it then to buy a good used car.  BUT, the main family behind the rescue group Andjoe Sarajevo, the Pasics can not afford to buy another car, nor to repair that one.

Mr. Pasic, (Aldin) works a good job and supports his family. But, the animal rescue monies comes from us.. those of us living outside of Bosnia. Many of us have little ourselves, but we give anyway because it is for the deserted, homeless, unloved, and sometimes hated vermin of Bosnia.. The Street Animals. 



THERE IS NO WAY TO DESTRIBUTE FOOD, RESCUE THE HURT AND SICK, NOR VISIT THE ANIMALS WHO HAVE BEEN PULLED FROM THE STREETS - A RESCUE – and  PLACED IN A PRIVATLY OWNED SHELTER; NOT WITH OUT A CAR.
So we are slowly raising the money for a new second car.  What would be great here is if a car company would donate a new car a SUV type. So large pet carrier could be carried in the rear.



  1. NEXT is FOOD.. FOOD TO KEEP THE STREET ANIMALS FED.  FOOD TO GIVE TO OTHER RESCUES IN THE AREA WHO ARE NOT GETTING GOOD SUPPORT. FOOD!  STARVATION IS A HURANDIOUS DEATH… IT IS PAINFUL.. ever go all day with out eating? Your tummy hurts huh? WELL MAGNIFY THAT BY A FEW THUSAND TIMES and that is the hurt the animal suffers as it vital organs finally shut down and it give up its life!
Not a nice easy death at all.. A page to donate for food is here: http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/feedingthestrays/224816




Now we get into Different groups, people or needs with in a group, that I want to help too.  This is probably not in order of preference mine or yours…

1.      Jelena and her cats: Meet 89 year old Jela, and her 12 cats. The 900 euro is 6 months worth of food. –
See more at: http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/jela-and-her-cats/235967   WE help her feed these cats.

2.      #Jela's-cook-stove-and-a-refrigerator. This lady has no living family Edina and Aldin Pasic of Andjeo Sarajevo BiH  have sort of adopted her. We help feed her cats. Her stove recently broke she can not cook on it. 89 almost 90 and you have no hot food daily?  PLEASE we have raised the minunen  amount stated by a few more euros will be used to buy a better one or put toward a refrigerator.. also greatly needed.
           
3.      Help feed the puppies: please donate to help Ajla Reiz feed the pups anyone who can foster or adopt a pup we can make that pup safe. But rescuer cannot take on more open ended debt by putting them in a pension that is the reality - See more at: http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/breaking-my-heart/226847

4.      Five 2 week old puppies ripped from mom, deserted and left to die. Only one survives. Will you help her? She will need special foods, vet fees and after she gets big enough, shelter fees. a HOME!  See more at: http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/deserted-dieing-saved/237916


5.      MUZZLED, is a dogs name. I named her this because of what this poor baby has gone through and she is less then a year old. I have volunteered as a virtual adopter for her, but I could only make it 20 euro a month her monthly bills will be about 120 Euro a month. I need HELP..Will you join me in her adoption? SHE DESERVES A GOOD HOME AND LOVING PEOPLE TO TAKE CARE OF HER.. WOULD YOU CONSIDER IT? Please go to her page and read http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/i-am-muzzled/240089   her October fees are coming up 26 Oct.  and I need help for her… PLEASE!





PLEASE INDICATE IN THE AREA FOR NOTES WHICH ANIMAL GROUP OR PERSON YOR DONATING MONEY TO. ANDJEO SARAJEVO needs to know so she can give it to the right group!…

If you have no preference where your donation goes then donate directly toPaypal account  is: andjeosarajevo@gmail.com     And leave a note spend where you need it most..  Please I worry daily that no one will donate and all the rescued will be killed by the dog catchers..  I have nightmares about it..

Any amount will help from 0.01 (a penny) to what ever amount you want to give! I truly wish you would be come a monthly donator..

Thank you for reading, Thank you for taking the time to think about donating, I thank you for the donation I just know you will give to this wonderful cause!

#Harry helped a 5 yr old, will you help a 89 yr old?

Meet Jela, an 89 year old Bosnian lady who lives on a minimum pension and still takes care of 12 cats and those cats have few teeth left if any.. She tries to keep them safe from the streets.

She herself has absolutely no comforts in her apartment that she shares with the cats, but she still does her best to take care of them.  They mean everything to her. She had no way to heat her home so a raditor heator was given to her. She has no refrigerator or stove. She has nothing. And she still cares for these cats.
It does not seem that she has any living family.  Bosnian animal rescuer Edina Pašić (Andjeo Sarajevo) and Aldin Pasic try their best to help her to take care of the cats, but they need  financial support to do this.
 Jela unfortunately can't really leave the house anymore and buy stuff for the cats, whilst I was away she asked a neighbor to go and get things for her and for the cats. she uses about 150 euro for dry and canned cat food per month. (mostly canned for the toothless ones.)
 THIS PAGE IS CREATED TO HELP RAISE FUNDS FOR JELA AND HER CATS  -  
Please help, as a 69 year old disabled person myself, I know what it must be like to think your alone and no one cares. These cats are her life blood to knowing love and compassion.. With out which she would likely curl up and just die.

In old age we still need to know we are needed, these cats need her 
and WE NEED YOU  - to give just a little each and every month..
Last Spring Jela ran out of money.. SHE had LITTLE FOOD for herself and none left for the cats… So she went with out eating for about 7 days feeding what she had to the cats.. When Edina Pasic visited her, she was very sick it took a visit to the Emergency room for care to save her.  We almost lost Jela those next few days.
We never want to see this happen ever again
 So we again ask for your help.  
Please Give it will not take much… 15 people giving 10 euro each… just once a month..  150 euro for cat food.. but if someone really wanted to help.. give a little more and we can add in some human food for Jela..

a kind generious OLD LADY.. who needs us..
She needs to know even though she is alone someone STILL cares for her!..
 Thank you..

FACE BOOK ALWAYS ASKS YOU....What is on your mind... LOL

Well mine is scared and desperately on raising money to help pay pension fees for Andjeo Sarajevo BiH a privately owned and operated animal rescue group in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Edina Pasic runs this rescue. She works tirelessly to help street animals in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. I have been donating to the group for over a year while I watch her take in every hurt animal she finds or is called to please come rescue. She even works with other groups and individuals both physically and financially.
She along with others feed the street animals that most people in Bosnia and Herzegovina feel are vermin..
At present we still are short 603 Euros.  for 25 animals

How to make money to cover that bill? Sale something? How about a book that you can down load and print at your home.. NO SHIPPING FEES AND YOU GET IT THAT DAY.. but what would be interesting and helpful to an animal lover like you?



I put together a Your Pets How to Recipes book. This book costs only 1 euro and has some interesting items and actual recipes of mine.


Book - 1 Euro paid to pay paypal account critterfitters@gmail.com in the messages give me an email address that I can send the files to, so you can print and or save.

The book is set up for printing with a high resolution.  It has nice graphics and easily readable pages. The recipes have been used and are good.

PLEASE BUY THE BOOK AND HELP SAVE A LIFE...

FEEDING-12-NOW



Have you bought your 50-50  ticket for feeding the puppies  this month?
They now have a events page and the name has been changed to ....BREAKING MY HEART.,...
http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/breaking-my-heart/226847
seven more puppies have been dumped where the mom and her five pups were found.. now there are 12 puppies and a dog. This is in the country/woods in an area where hunters are..these puppies could easily be killed by the hunters..
Ajla Reiz found them, but can not take on a new responsibility of debt and put them (If she can catch them) in a shelter/pension. She is already paying pension and food fees she can hardly cover.

A 50/50 draw helps only once a month at the end of the draw, and her draw is not growing as it should.. The you caring page help instantly as the money goes directly to her.. and she has been buying food for the puppies with that..



I would ask one of the rescuers I know to step in and take the responsibility, but even their donations are very small this entire summer. When we ask a rescuer to take on an animal, we also take on the responsibility to help pay the bills generated by that animal...

My draws are not generating enough --- the ucaring pages are not generating enough, and i'm getting very little response from twitter, or the other social medias i message about needing money..

But what happens to these 12 puppies, will they even live past the sub zero temperatures, a Bosnian winter brings?

Only you can decide that,  by the  donations you give. One rescue is no more or less important then any other. They all work to save as many as possible.

PLEASE BUY YOUR TICKETS ----- PLEASE DONATE -- EVEN JUST ONE POUND OR 1 EURO OR 1 DOLLAR - IT WILL PROVIDE  MUCH NEEDED MONEY THAT WILL BE USED TO SUPPORT ANIMALS

BUDGET an amount to donate, pay it like any other bill you commit to:

1£= 1 ticket          5£ = 6 tickets
PAYPAL ACCOUNT: critterfitters@gmail.com


Thank you for reading!
