    Our Story

    In 2019 we met Jimi outside a supermarket in Bar, Montenegro. He looked very sick and was wandering around parked cars as if asking for someone to help him. So we did. It took a couple of days waiting around the entrance to the Supermarket speaking with people but eventually, we found someone prepared to help us locate a vet and a local charity to help. That ‘someone’ was Dusko, Ivana and their family. Together with the help of a local charity ‘Stray Aid Montenegro’ we saved Jimi’s life and gave him a happy home. His health outcome was uncertain for a while due to a bad case of heartworm. This is common for street dogs in Montenegro but he pulled through. Jimi is now living with Dusko & Ivana in Serbia.

    Jimi brought us all together and since then we have become firm friends. We share the same values and a dream of one day setting up a sanctuary. That dream is somehow now a reality and with your help, we are rescuing more abandoned animals like Jimi. We are helping them to fulfil their dreams of regular food, safety, warmth, love and hopefully a forever happy home.

    Welcome to Whispaws and Thank you! with love, Emma and all of the Whispaws team.

      2/2 We had hoped that work would commence in Sept but after a few set backs with building supplies and trades people we have finally found someone to build our parameter fencing and they will begin next week! We are also planning a trip (Emma + Nam 😊) to Serbia over the next couple of weeks, again later than expected! When we can take footage of the place and show you our plans in an update video on return. A project like this, though 100% worth it, is very daunting at times. Knowing you are routing for us makes ALL the difference. THANK YOU!

      Dogs are the most amazing soulmates and the best friends anyone could ever wish for. All of them deserve a loving home where they can live happy and safe. Thank you for helping save stray dogs.
