Urgent Winter Crisis Appeal

Urgent Winter Crisis Appeal
Amount:  €1.00
I Would Like To Give:  

The devastating news from SOS Sunshine Paws Sanctuary, Bosnia today is that two of the dogs, Leo and Daisy, sadly have succumbed to the extreme cold sub zero freezing temperatures overnight that the shelter is experiencing right now up in the mountains of Bosnia; it is currently around -12C/ 10F. It is much colder than in the low lying Sarajevo & towns. Our worker says that just 5 minutes outside and she can’t feel her face. These latest pictures from the Sanctuary show how extremely cold the weather is.  There is a huge temperature difference up in the mountains - about 10 degrees colder than in Sarajevo. 

This news has shocked us all, not only in Bosnia but also those of us who have just heard about it in the UK and many tears have fallen.

The main building is constructed from thermo blocs and the dogs have thick straw based bedding. Unfortunately, the planned stove for this building couldn’t be purchased as the boiler blew up in the workers building and we had to buy & install a new one there - it is needed for both heat & cooking.

The location and appalling driving conditions mean that a quick & effective source of heat needs to be purchased - we have suggested convection heaters. Our worker needs funds to purchase these as fast as possible. The rescuer is currently in hospital receiving treatment for her illness - she is threatening to leave her bed to save the dogs, but we need her strong & well for the future.

We would like to raise €600 ... £512 to buy some heaters. 

Obviously this will impact on the electric bill in the longer term but dogs lives are priceless.

Please support our appeal.

Thank you.
