    Story

    Recently, whilst riding in Bosnia with a friend, we found Mo on the side of an industrial road next to a cardboard box. Her two siblings had been sadly run over and she was starving hungry, thirsty and absolutely covered in parasites. I knew as soon as I rode past and saw her out the corner of my eye that she was abandoned and couldn't stop myself from going back, only then realising I had no idea what to do in a country where I couldn't speak the language, and where animal rescue shelters are mostly unknown. Mo was so trusting and happy to eat the only food I had (carrot cake energy bars). There was no way I was going to leave her for a lingering death, so we found a vet 8 km away in Mostar and I carried her there in my rucksack on back-to-front. The roads were pretty busy and it was scary at times, but it was worth it as we found a wonderful, and knowledgeable, vet who was so happy to help and who understands the requirements for pet passports. Suddenly we went from assuming she would be euthanised (they have 30 000 unwanted dogs in Bosnia) to realising getting her home to the UK was an absolute possibility. The vet knew of an amazing lady who looks after other dogs and cats, and who has agreed to foster Mo for the next three months, whilst she has her vaccinations etc. This will give us time to raise the funds to pay the vet, the foster bill, travel costs, and bring her to the UK where she will have a lifetime home. We plan to spay her in the UK. Any help, however small, will be appreciated. If any money remains once Mo is settled with us, the funds will be sent to Animal Welfare Advocates for Bosnia ( https://www.facebook.com/AWAbosnia/ ), who have helped massively already with their experience and advice.

      Mo is home! That's thanks to every single one of you who have donated to this justgiving page. She's settled in so well and has spent the last 24 hours playing, eating and sleeping. There isn't much left in the bank, and she needs some veterinary treatment (she has a blood infection from a tick bite and is on antibiotics for a while), but there will still be a little more to give to help other unfortunate dogs find their way onto the happy bus, out of Bosnia and to their own forever homes. Thank you everyone.

      This beautiful, big, bouncy girl is growing and growing. We have a definite date of the 16th August for when she starts her travel. It is so exciting that she will soon be home in the UK and running around the hills here.. Her foster carer has done such a wonderful job. She's such a healthy bundle of joy. Please, if you can spare a penny to help, all money will be appreciated. Any left after Mo is safely with us will be sent to help the desperate Bosnian shelters.

      Today Mo received her rabies jab and we are now finally in the position to sort transport. It will be a month or so before she is with us as there is a waiting period after the jab. However this gives time to select the best, and safest, option to bring her home. At the rate she is growing she may need a truck all of her own hehehe! Please, if you can spare a penny to help, all money will be appreciated. Any left after Mo is safely with us will be sent to help the desperate Bosnian shelters.
