In an ideal world, every dog would have a home. But then we don’t live in an ideal world. Try telling that to Sasa Pejčić of Serbia. In a city (Niš, Serbia) where living conditions of stray dogs is deplorable – deadly streets or violent dogcatchers, Sasa didn’t wait for the government, the NGOs or shelters, this dog lover sparked a change on his own. Showing the world that it still takes one man to make a difference, here is:
How one man saved 450 homeless dogs
Sasa turned a former equestrian club stable into a heaven for the stray dogs he rescues from the streets. The Harmony Fund is an incredible sanctuary. It’s not because of the number of dogs that live there, but how they live! All of the 450 dogs are vaccinated and micro-chipped; loved and cared for. Instead of living in locked cages or kennels in a warehouse, the dogs are free all day to play around, and just living life. This heartwarming initiative has found takers in the city dwellers and many of them are provided for by kind humans.
Till the dogs get adopted, they play on the property and receive belly rubs and tons of love from Sasa. They spend their nights sleeping inside, where they are warm and safe. Currently, 88 of the dogs have sponsors who help cover their care.
The Harmony Fund released this heartwarming video of the dogs playing in the sanctuary to raise awareness about Sasa’s work and encourage people to donate to his efforts and help him save the lives of these once-abandoned dogs.
Thank you, Sasa for making us all warm and fuzzy but more importantly for bringing hope, happiness, and home to these dogs!
