While my parents and I were struggling to keep saved animals safe and fed, my dad was informed about badly injured dog in Breza in March. An unknown driver had hit a dog and left him to die on a road in Breza. Local people had called the police station to ask what to do with the dog and police officers called a vet who worked in Public Company Veterinary station Breza. That vet refused to help the dog so my dad was called to help.

After he had found the dog, he took him to the private veterinary station in
Sarajevo. Injuries were awful. This sweet boy had two fractures of front leg and two fractures of a hind paw including a fracture of a hip which was the most severe injury so the question is if the vet would be able to save the hind leg. The dog was operated. The most awful thing was that he had been hit at 3 o'clock a.m. and no one wanted to help him until my dad was called at 10 o'clock a.m. so the injured dog spent 7 hours on the cold road in pain.

He was in shock and had hypothermia when my dad took him. Of course I made a huge mess to the director of the veterinary station. Badly injured dog is named Vucko.

The operation was successfull. The recovery process was long and exhausting.Vucko had wires and fixators in front and hind paws. He couldn't stand or walk on his own, and also he needed help to urinate. Vucko also had eat only wet food because of digestion. My dad took Vucko to our house. Vucko has recovered successfully.

It costs 50 € a month to keep Vucko off the streets and safe. When you sponsor Vucko you have a number of options, you can:

1. give the suggested monthly amount of 50 €

2. give any monthly amount that fits your budget...and we will continue to look for additional sponsors to contribute

3. give a one-time gift...and we will continue to look for additional sponsors
