Again a raise of food prices

June 24, 2022 - We got an announcement for new food prices this morning a bag of 10kg of dry food is going to cost 9.6e. Those prices are going to be active from tomorrow. We have time to order more food with older prices today and tomorrow morning, and every order that comes after tomorrow morning is going to be delivered with new prices. I must say that is really disastrous for us so please let’s order more food while we can with older price

Troy is doing so well

June 23, 2022 - Animals recover thanks to your help and we have results thanks to your help Troy was so badly injured that he couldn’t walk at all, his knee was destroyed and his hip was dislocated. Troy walks again now. His artificial knee has adjusted to his organism, his hip has recovered better than we expected.

When you donate, you donate to

- save a life

And as you can see we have amazing achievements for so many animals

Dalida can't save lives on her own...

June 23, - 2022 

Another loss...

June 22, 2022 - Another sudden death. Lovely, beautiful Burence died today, probably because of the extreme heat. He lived at the shelter together with his brother Bijelko. They were saved together in 2014 from an abusive neighbour. Burence was about 12 years old.

All crossed the Rainbow bridge this year

June 22, 2021 - It is hard to believe but all these precious, lovely and amazing animals of Usko's Nest Dog Shelter crossed the rainbow bridge from January this year untill now... As animal lovers yourself you can imagine the heartache and pain Dalida and Meliha are having...

They need you... your love, your help, your friendship and your support in all ways possible...

!!Food Appeal!!

Thank you so much for caring

Medo

June 21, 2022 - Cute English bulldog Medo died today, very unexpected, no sign of any illness. Medo lived in the house with Meliha. He was most characteristic and a very active English bulldog, full of energy and enjoying his life. He was such a sweetheart. He belonged to the group of oldies.

Urgent fund raising for food

June 21, 2022 - Dalida: "The food supplier is willing to send orders for as much food as possible but we must raise funds and pay orders and hopefully get as much as food is possible with current prices please let’s continue raising funds for food tonight. We have reached the breaking point because of increase in prices and decrease in donations and we don’t have time to act at all".

Get involved! Become a monthly sponsor!

June 21, 2022 - Become a monthly sponsor to one of the dogs of the shelter. For instance Bella, Cura, Brka or Mico. Go to the page of this website called: Available for virtual adoption and you find more dogs.

Attention Please!

June 21, 2022 - Dalida:"Although it is very uncomfortable for me to talk about funds and costs, I have animals to feed and under these circumstances it is a huge question if we will be able to continue feeding them and taking care of them. You may think that I sound over dramatic but getting to the point where fuel costs 1.92e means not only that is a huge question how we will go to the shelter and back, how we will take animals to vets and provide supplies, but it also means that it is a huge question how to keep up with food and basic care. We have already come to position that for 1/3 less food can be bought monthly and the situation is such that money is losing its value daily here. You may also think that this problem can be solved in future. Unfortunately, this problem should have already started being solved. We need supplies while we can afford them, because with such development we won’t be able afford food and basic care for animals, we won’t be able to keep up. We must start providing things in advance".

New increase of fuel prices!

June 21, 2022 - Dalida:"We woke up with fuel prices of 1.92e (or 1.86e at smaller stations) this morning the next thing that is going to happen is that we will have new prices of essentials probably during the day or in the morning. Prices are totally out of control here, and authorities don't use any of mechanisms to decrease them for simple reason: excise taxes and ADV are very high here and they are the best way of filling the budget. This means that we won’t be able to keep up with prices anymore. I am constantly trying to warn that the future of our animals and the shelter is in question".

Beka's progress

June 20, 2022 - The photo is a bit blurry but look at this good girl. Beka is happier without a feeding tube, and she has gained some weight. The tumour is still changing and getting softer, which is a good sign.

It is Father's Day

June 19, 2022 - Eldar Kozlic, Dalida's father passed away on February 2, 2021. He left a great emptiness. His health could no longer compete with the pressure and stress. He died while rescuing animals that he had devoted his entire life to. 

S.O.S.
