Fiona Sawney runs Friends of Dogs, Montenegro. We support her so that she can save the abandoned dogs of Montenegro. With NFA’s backing, Fiona and a group of local animal welfare activists have visited all 23 municipalities in Montenegro and documented the barriers they face when dealing with street dogs. They have also assessed the shelters against the legal standards, which are generally not well enforced. With good information, Friends of Dogs Montenegro will be able to highlight the problems and difficulties and lobby for the government to address them. Watch her testimonial to find out more about how she is working with Network for Animals to rescue defenseless dogs struggling to survive in Montenegro.

A testimonial from Claire Einhorn who runs Matabeleland Animal Rescue Equine Sanctuary (MARES) our partner in Zimbabwe. Thanks to Network for Animals over 300 donkeys who have found sanctuary at MARES have medical supplies and food to last them through winter. The coronavirus crisis has disrupted life in Zimbabwe making it harder to transport food and medicine to the donkeys. Thanks to your donations the donkeys at MARES will continue to receive the love and care they need.

Network for Animals and Shaygam Newman work tirelessly together to stop the suffering of the animals in Hangberg. The area is sadly known for its high levels of unemployment, poverty, violence, and gangsterism. Shaygam is the founder of Shaygam’s shelter. He found refuge amongst street dogs when he had to flee from home to escape an abusive relative. Shaygam vowed to make it his life’s mission to repay the stray dogs by caring for them. In 2019 he won the Brian Davies Award for all his efforts.
