NIRINA – Animal welfare
Dear dog lovers, we represent a young animal welfare organization “NIRINA” from Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina. We would like to familiarize you with the condition of the dog shelter in Tuzla. You should take a look at the videos and pictures on the group wall, it will say much more than words. There are around 500 dogs in this shelter at the moment, and before our contribution there lived more than 700 dogs. This dog shelter was established by one organization about 12 years ago. Ever since the living conditions were decreasing, and the number of dogs has been constantly increasing.
In January 2012, we have established a group of volunteers consisted of 3 constant members and leaders, and many more active members, who help us in realizing our goal. Now we are a registered volunteering organization and we exist solely thanks to our supporters from all over the world. We have already made a big improvement, and developed a strong network with Animal protection agencies in Austria and Germany, as well as separate supporters who give their contribution for the food for dogs every month. There is a big change noticeable to everyone who has visited the shelter before us and now. Still we have a lot more to do to make this place an acceptable living area.
Dog shelter in Tuzla, does not have water, nor electricity. We have many problems with government here because of an absence of animal protection laws. For this to change we need big support from all over the world.
I hope you will respond to our weep and help us make this cruel camp a nice place for our beautiful dogs. If you are interested in our work and want to help us in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us, we really look forward to it. Thank you.
If you are interested in adopting some of our dogs, please contact us via email with Subject: Adoption (name of the dog), and we will send you all the aditional info on that dog and explain the whole adoption process to you; you can also contact us on our facebook pages, where we have many other supporters and adopters who can and will help you as well.
