It is a cold and miserable festive season in the Balkans, and 12 of our partners are in desperate need of help in feeding 2,900 dogs in their care. Countless of these abandoned animals wander the streets looking for scraps of food, and they are freezing, wet and without hope - even as people around them celebrate the joys of the season. The sad truth is that without assistance from animal lovers like you, many of these dogs will never see another summer, let alone survive this season...
Many of the people of Montenegro treat animals as vermin! If homeless animals are caught, they get the killing needle if they are lucky and poisoned if not. Amazingly, in many places, this is still happening.
We are working tirelessly to change this situation.
For most dogs in the region, their lives remain nasty, brutish and short. Unwanted puppies are dumped on main roads so they can be hit by cars, old animals are abandoned because it is too much trouble to care for them, injured animals are dumped rather than taken to a vet and sick animals are killed.
Fortunately, some good people dedicate their lives to helping these dogs. We work with 12 wonderful partners in Balkan countries, feeding and caring for dogs. Each of these organizations depend upon our supporters and every single one of our partners in Balkan countries is pleading with us to buy food to get the dogs through winter.
The situation is even worse this year because the Russian invasion of Ukraine has caused food shortages and driven up prices.
We have 2,900 Balkan dogs who desperately need
to have their bellies kept full this festive season, and beyond.
Your donation will buy essential dog food for cold, hungry, discarded dogs and for street cats too. Can these starving animals count on your support today - a time when they should be happy and cherished, but instead are eking out a miserable existence on the streets?
$10 (roughly £8.50) will feed a starving Balkan dog for an entire month, for a hungry, homeless dog, this could make the difference between life and death.
As animal lovers, we MUST do everything we can to bring these painfully hungry dogs relief. Can they count on your donation today? Regular square meals would be the greatest holiday gift of all for these dogs and your donation will help us make that dream a reality. Please be as generous today as you can be.
For the animals,
Brian and Gloria Davies (and Max and Flora!)

P.S. For so many dogs in the Balkans, there is very little hope at the end of every bleak and painful day. Imagine how their lives would change if they could enjoy a bowl of food each day? It’s such a simple thing - and NO animal should ever go hungry! If you can find it in your heart to donate $10 (roughly £8.50) this holiday season, you will feed one dog for an entire month. $30 (£25) will feed three dogs for a month. To the animals, it would mean a world of happiness. With your help, our mission to feed 2,900 desperately needy dogs will be more than a holiday dream - so please, donate anything you possibly can right now.
