For the latest news about what is happening for strays in Bosnia Herzegovina,
please see our Facebook group


AWAbosnia is a group of animal welfare advocates who live outside of Bosnia Herzegovina but who are dedicated to assisting and supporting animal welfare groups within the country.
What we do:

  • Raise awareness about the suffering of all animals in Bosnia-Herzegovina
  • Support local animal welfare groups and rescuers and help them find homes for their rescues and in general support them to help alleviate the suffering of animals in Bosnia-Herzegovina
  • Assist where possible with spay-neuter-release projects
  • Create and engage in specific international initiatives to highlight the plight of animals in the country and to collaborate with other animal welfare organisations, NGO’s, the European Parliament, Bosnian authorities and the Bosnian public to bring about a humane approach to animal welfare and animal control in the country

AWABosnia have assisted rescuers in finding homes for over 600 rescues from Bosnia Herzegovina since 2012. Some are now living in the UK, Finland, Germany, Slovenia, Croatia, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy, others as far away as the U.S.A. There are many still rescues needing forever homes. Please visit our Facebook page or the Facebook group for more information, or send us an email at to let us know that you would like to adopt.
