🔎 Some dogs are only availible for sponsoring and not adoption, because of age or chronic conditions🔍
Dalida Kozlic speaking about adoption:
In order to be adopted abroad, all dogs have to be vaccinated against rabies, micro chipped and get a passport. These procedures are a legal obligation and they are all done by veterinarians in Bosnia. Foreign supporters or organisations post about dogs that are available for adoptions in order to find suitable homes.
Three things are important
1. Home check - all potential adopters are checked by members of organisations that organise adoptions
2. Home back up and an adoption contract
3. A reliable transport
Thinking of adopting a Bosnian stray dog?
Here is the top 10 reasons why you should adopt one
1) You will save a life. Sadly, Bosnian strays do not have the backing of large charities, and depend on small rescue groups. So, you will be the sole chance for your dog.
2) By adopting a Bosnian stray, you will save two lives, as the rescuers can pull out another dog from a death camp, or from the streets to fill your dog's space.
3) You won't support puppy mills and breeders.
4) Sadly, there are thousands of strays in Bosnia, this means that you will be able to find a dog to suit your family (ie, size, age, breed)
5) You will help prevent the vicious dog business/war against the Bosnian government (they claim 250 euros for capturing and killing a dog despite excellent animal welfare legislation. They break their own laws.)
6) Despite that very same strict and good animal welfare legislation Bosnian public pounds are far from high standards, and dogs are crammed in kennels and starved to death.
7) Having gone through such a hard life and ill treatment, the gratefulness of being fed, loved and having a roof over their head, reflects on their character. They are always grateful, and every time you look them in the eye, you will experience thankfulness for saving them.
8)They come fully vaccinated, health checked and with a passport.
9) Your dog will raise awareness to the corruption and ill treatment of dogs in Bosnia, which can lead to members of your family or friends supporting or adopting the strays.
10) Bosnian public pound dogs are not humanely euthanised, but are often killed by beating them to death, or simply starving them. You will feel better knowing that you have saved your dog from the hands of barbarians.
