How you can help…

Help us help Bosnia's Dogs & Cats - Please share this with your friends.

AWABosnia relies totally on donations to support local volunteers in Sarajevo and beyond who care for the animals in greatest need in Bosnia. Donations can be sent via Paypal to Or if you can make a recurring donation, please use the app to the right.

Bosnia-Herzegovina is a very harsh place for animals. Due to the lack of effective government spay/neutering programmes, human disregard for animals, poverty, and the lack of provision of adequate shelters, thousands of hungry animals are condemned to a short life of wandering the streets of its towns and cities before succumbing to disease or accidental or violent death.

Many of the animal rescuers we work with are victims themselves of threats (and sometimes violence) from citizens and organised gangs for the voluntary work they do. It’s also a constant financial struggle for them to care for even the smallest number of dogs and cats.

Very little funds are able to be raised in the country, therefore a small band of AWAbosnia unpaid volunteers outside the country works tirelessly to enable those in-country to continue their excellent work.

There are a number of  ways that you can help (and some without costing you a penny!).

We are always looking for new, interesting (and creative) ways to raise funds for the Bosnian animals. We only ask for a few hours of your time each week (mostly in front of your computer) and you will be able to make such a difference. Please join our Facebook group and start networking with our other supporters.

We rely 100% on donations from our supporters around the world. Caring for only the 30+ animals currently in foster care in Sarajevo costs upwards of 3,000 euros per month, therefore we are constantly seeking donations. We welcome one-off donations or why not sponsor an AWAbosnia dog in our Virtual Adoption program? For details of this program, please go here.

Send your donations via Paypal to here. If you would prefer some other method of donating, please email us at or use our contact form here.

Please note that ALL donations will be acknowledged.

To all of those who have given their time and donated so generously over the past few months, we are very grateful.

Saving the life of one animal may not change the world, but the world will surely change for that one animal!

Thank you!
