Happy New Year - 2013

Happy New Year

What have you done for the deserted, homeless, helpless and hungry animals this past year? What will you do to help them next year?

"Helpless Animals" is not a individual country's problem but a world wide, planetary problem. What laws protect sentient  beings. But what is a sentient being... Well, break the words down, "SENTIENT" means, conscious, alert, attentive, awake, responsive.  A "BEING" means, life form, organism, creature, living being, human being, person, individual, mortal.

What separates a human from any other animal?  The ability to communicate. What is communication?  the dictionary states: to converse, talk, speak, exchange a few words, commune, be in touch, correspond, write, be in contact.

Other animals communicate. How you ask? They exchange sounds, they use body language, tail wags, hair stands on end, they raise their backs to give a bigger impression of themselves, they sniff each other, they clean and manicure each other. They leave their scent so others of thier kind can find them or stay away.

They form family groups. Protect their territory. 

Some people say this is instinct, but most  animals can be taught, so there is some intelligence to learn. Do we think less of their means of communication because we don't understand it?  Is this the problem of the animal, or humans? 

We consider ourselves humane, but what humane individuals sets a dog on fire for the fun of it, or shoots a cat or cooks a live kitten in a microwave, throws a dog into traffic, a man beats his wife's dog to death with his bare hands because of a fight they had and all because we can.
 Internationally, or each country has laws protecting each human from the mischief and malice of other individuals, but what laws protect the other sentient beings on earth?

Human compassion should protect them but it doesn't. Make Laws to protect all sentient beings.

Now the question is what will you do this year to help the other sentient beings of this planet? Donate food, blankets, bedding? 

Pick a group that is interested in helping others and do what you can. Not everything involves money.

I have picked two additional groups to help this year.

1. Lets adopt global -  it is in Spain and Viktor helps UN-helpable animals survive and get well. He does this on individual gifts. Some say each one of the animals he helps are so bad off thery should be put down, Viktor believes that as long as an animal fights for life they should be helped to live. We don't put down humans, we shouldn't put down an animal if at all possible.

2IN MEMORY OF VUČKO     raising awareness and funds to stop animal suffering in Sarajevo and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
I don't have a lot of money but I'm sewing dog blankets and sleeping pads and coats. These items are being sent to Bosnia-Herzegovina twice a month.  They desperately need money to buy food and veterinarian services and shelter.

Please consider adopting a group even a dollar a month can help provide food for the starving or shelter for the cold and homeless.

And if you would take the time and this only takes time.. go to the animal rescue site -
Click on the button that gives food for free.. It only takes time.

May your new year be filled with helping others as you would want to be helped

Thank you

#Suffering in Sarajevo

Suffering in Sarajevo

by Sandra Jensen
On Christmas eve a dog was found dead and brutalized by hunters. This is a very common occurrence. Why do they do it? Because they can.
This poor dog was one of many strays that the animal welfare activists in Sarajevo feed:
There are over 11,000 strays in Sarajevo. Winter is a terrible time for them with temperatures hitting minus 20 or worse, and as always there are so many who are ill or wounded. Jelena Paunovic and other animal welfare activists make daily trips to feed the strays. Last winter in Sarajevo the snow was almost two meters high and every day they would find many dogs and cats dead on the streets, dead from starvation or frozen to death. Funds are desperately needed to pay for food.
574960_10200278052936769_1872937246_n   314054_10200278054696813_1567640548_n        6104_10200278058576910_757209715_n 
And it is not just the dogs.

This is one of several stray cats near a farm in Sarajevo. The people who feed them do not have anything other than bread to feed the cats. Cats cannot live on bread. Jelena went there to give them some cat food. She discovered that there are 3 females who give birth every year. Spaying costs 40 euros (about $55 USD) and the cheapest cat food costs 1,5 EUR per kilogram. A contribution of 120 Euros (about $165 USD) will mean that dozens of kittens will not be born to suffer a life of neglect, starvation and abuse. Please help.

Raising awareness and funds to stop animal suffering in Sarajevo and Bosnia-Herzegovina


The rescues at this particular pension in Sarajevo have no heating. There are nine dogs at this pension, most of them quite young. Marley and Tessa are outside (with a dogs house to sleep in, but no heating) and all the others are sleeping in a garage. It is VERY cold, temperatures already going down to minus 10 and it will get much colder. Jelena Paunović couldn’t take many photos because her fingers were frozen.  What is worse is that all the dogs are very unwell with demodex and lowered immune systems. These are the dogs that survived canine parvovirus and Tessa, one of the dogs, barely survived pneumonia and has an enlarged heart. See “Things Are Not Good In Sarajevo“.
If we can’t find a solution the dogs may not survive the winter. I am not sure what the solution can be. The only suitable pension is King Pension and there is no space there. Perhaps we can raise funds for blankets, straw, or even for electric heating to be brought into the garage. I’m working on this and will update but funds are needed to get these dogs through the winter, at the very least with very high quality food. Jackets for each dog cost around 40 Euros ($USD 50) unless they can be mailed over, but this can take up to 6 weeks from the USA.
UPDATE: donations are already coming in, thank you so much! And I’ve just started a ChipIn for those that prefer: HELP 9 DOGS SURVIVE THE WINTER IN SARAJEVO

My Dog CoCo
I want to talk about how many incidents of animal abuse we have been seeing in the last few years. Is it that we as the human race have always been this evil, or is it that a new horrible attitude of I can do what I want, without being punished has developed in recent years?

What causes a person to torture a defenseless animal? Some say sexual gratification or dominance and anger. I read somewhere years ago that there was one  Psychopath in every seven people. One in seven that is a lot of problems.

Have we caused this by being to leasy on our children?  Was the right attitude for the care and giving we need in humanity presented and developed in our children? 

What causes children to burn a dog alive or cook a live kitten in a microwave, or take a gun to school and kill class mates or people watching a movie, or a husband to beat the family dog because he is mad at the wife, or a mother to drive her three children, seat belted in the back seat into a lake and drown them?

Not everyone in the world is like this but, do we become involved when we see abuse happening? Do you look the other way?  Years ago a young woman was raped and killed while people in the apartments around her either watched or ignored her crys for help, no one even called the police. Can we continue this way? 

No we have to become involved, we must help. When you see someone committing a crime report it. I'm not saying jump into it with the person beating their dog, but I would; I am saying stand right there and call the police tell them,  get pictures from your smart phones. Maybe if you talk to the person they will stop what they are doing...but don't get hurt.. do become a hero, help and protect!

I started this post  because of Tidus (in Spain - burned alive and fighting to live, you can donate at Lets adopt Global) and that poor kitten who was cooked in a microwave, and Now Lacey who was hit by a golf club and had bleach thrown in her eyes and left tied to a tree, to die.

You can read about Lacey at:

Think about giving a donation to a shelter near you or an animal who is fighting for their lives because of us humans.

Happy Holidays to all - Nelda

Justice For Ayten Hope


This petition was published by Marmaris Animal Welfare on Oct 05, 2012
Target: Muğla Veterinerler Odası
Region: Turkey

Petition Background (Preamble):

Ayten Hope is a beautiful and gentle Chocolate Dobermann. We know at some point she has had puppies. She is only 2 years old and has the most horrible story to tell. She watched her two brothers being shot to death in a forest. She was also shot- twice in her leg and left to die by a river. Angels must have watched her and she was taken to a local vet.

The vet operated on her in the most incompetent, butcherous and barbaric way, being described by other veterinarians as 'experimented on'. This resulted in her becoming paralysed and in pain. They did not even remove the bullet fragments from her frail and dying body. The vet then tried to rehome Ayten Hope. The neglect and mistreatment she received while she was ‘’in the care of’’ this evil vet cannot be understood. She lost more and more weight. When she wasn't adopted by anyone. She was then dumped at the local dog shelter. When she arrived it was obvious she had been starved. She had a tiny little body of skin and bones, wracked with pain. She couldn’t even lie down without suffering. She had been mistreated for months by a person- a veterinarian- who has given an oath to protect and care for animals but Ayten Hope was defiled and abused in a way that no animal should ever know.

The evil vet WILL NOT be allowed to get away with this. With all the good people in this world joining hands across the globe, we can change her misfortune and prevent another tragedy like this ever occuring at the hands of this cruel and sick woman again. Ayten Hope will give hope to all the others who perish at the hands of vile and negligent humans. Please help her today by signing and sharing. If you can please visit 'Let's Adopt Global' to see her rescue and give towards her treatment and rehabilitation or simply pledge your support. Ayten Hope thanks you all!
