Weathering Life’s Storms
They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. (Luke 6:48)
The harsh Bosnian winter weather is playing havoc with the old buildings and land at the Shelter and our dogs have been suffering from the extremely low temperatures despite the warmth, straw bedding and extra food we have provided - we would like to make some major improvements as soon as possible - before disaster strikes. We need to go back to basics - good solid foundations, strong walls and a watertight roof.
Time isn’t on our side; the dogs need this urgently - can you help us rebuild a strong new Shelter that will see us through many years to come?

Honor’s Shelter Sapica is situated in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is a private shelter for dogs saved from the streets, from the dog catchers, from death and from the Praca public shelter. In Honor’s Shelter Sapica there are dogs that were once left to die, maltreated by uncaring owners or people on the streets. Here dogs are cared about, and they are given a chance to recover and have veterinary treatment. The aim is to find permanent homes for them through responsible adoption in the UK and other Western European countries and even the USA.
Honor’s Shelter Sapica is run by volunteers. It relies solely on the sponsorship of individual dogs and donations from kind supporters.
Our supporters are incredibly important to us. Without your help, we simply wouldn’t be able to help the dogs who need us, or carry on providing the care that so many dogs in Bosnia depend on.
The fundraising team is here to raise money to fund the work of the shelter, but we can’t do it without you.
Our supporters help the shelter in many valuable ways – whether it is the giving of your time to organise on-line events, donating money, goods or services, sponsoring, fostering or adopting, campaigning or spreading the word about what we do. However you decide to help, we are very thankful and grateful for your support, generosity, compassion and kindness.
Honor’s Shelter Sapica is a private shelter, rather than a pension, as all the dogs were rescued by us; people do not pay to keep their dogs there. This is why your donation is so important, as donations from kind and generous supporters are the only source of income.

How will the funds raised be spent?
100% of all funds raised will go to the dogs at the shelter. Apart from one full time member of staff at the shelter, the rest are unpaid volunteers. We don't have fancy offices or top of the range cars. We are very transparent when it comes to where the money goes.
How will the funds get to Bosnia?
Any funds raised will be withdrawn to a UK bank account and then transferred by bank transfer or by PayPal to the shelter. Our volunteers will take charge of the money and spend it accordingly for the dogs needs/as per the current appeal.
