I have been begging for about 5 years now, maybe more. Day after Day, hour after hour seeing the crys for help coming out of Eastern Europe. Knowing that if no one helps another being will die. I'm even crying here while writing.. I'm so angry at myself for not being stronger.
Why doesn't anyone ...SOMEONE -- help these rescues in Eastern Europe. Now that isn't really fair, because many many people who have nothing, do help as much as possible! But it isn't enough.. Day after Day animals die of hunger, sickness, cruelty, Many different things That we who really care can do nothing about without money.
Yes my desperation is money. I have never cared about material things, what can they give you? Nothing..A false attitude that your better then the next cause you have all this stuff... but if I had money I could help more... LOL I'd still be broke but it would not matter..because another life would be saved.
It seems like every rescue in the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina is asking for help. I really don't understand this country. They are not a generation or two from the devastating war they had neighborhood against neighborhood..Families being almost completely wiped out.. They still hate one another.. and yet they say they want to help the animals. But let one person from a different ethnic group do better then someone else and the hateful stories start. The person doing good gets accused of not using the money for rescues. The people spreading these stories don't care that the animals will suffer... just that they hurt the other person, because of hate!
Then people like me who don't live there. Stop helping because we believe the person who told us they were cheating... My case is a little different. A dear friend went to Eastern Europe, Sarajevo was one stop she met the people I support and gave me a report on them and how they rescue. So I continue to donate to them, even when the haters tells actual lies about them.
But it gets harder and harder to raise the funds for keeping the animals rescued from the streets safe..hatefull words have a tendency to spread like a wild brush fire in dry grass and brush...and it stops people who don't know better from helping..this makes me so depressed.. I feel like a failure.
Right now my three favorite rescues desperately need money...
This rescue gathers money, food, blankets, beds any item needed and takes them to the little rescues that with out her have very little help, if any.
Miska Oksanen, an animal lover from Finland. For years we have been collecting donations and donated money, food, medication and everyday necessities for varies organisations and private people who help homeless and less fortunate cats and dogs all around the world.
This site was created to organise collective supply and fundraising and to make it easier for people to donate. We know how hard it is to choose who to help because there are so many in need and there is also a danger that the donation does not reach the animal. All of the people we work with are 100 % trustworthy and all of the donations through us go straight to the animals.
We are always open in everything we do and keep track of all the donations; whether it’s funds, food or supplies.
I am desperate to get help for these three rescues.
Please give a euro if you can not help with more, because animals will die with out your help.. not a nice lets lay down and give up the ghost kind of death either.. the dog catchers of Sarajevo hate these three rescues and if they can, will kill the animals.. In the cruelest way they can think of..
