SARO is a slightly different organisation, in that it combines forces of people in Austria and Sarajevo. It's actually been impossible to find any shelters in Bosnia itself, although they have a huge stray dog problem. They require donations of food, equipment and money, as well as sponsors, members and foster homes.

"S.A.R.O. is a group of animal lovers from Austria and Bosnia-Herzegovina, who can no longer look at the immense animal suffering in the streets. We are trying to fight the problem at its root, that is, the many, many animals, which multiply immensely, despite the high mortality rate, must be neutered to prevent animal suffering. People must be educated to neuter their animals and must be convinced that dogs are more than mere guarding machines, that they have needs. It is not common that dogs are given food and water every day."

What can you do to help? You might be able to offer:

1) A loving home for our rescue dogs

2) To act as an escort for dogs to their new homes

3) Donations of dog food

4) Help with walking and playing with the dogs

5) Dog behaviourist skills, to specific dogs overcome particular issues

6) Veterinary skills, to neuter dogs for free and/or provide other veterinary assistance

7) Vaccine donations

8) Help with meeting our veterinary bills
