The word Animal Welfare doesn’t exist in Macedonia, with an estimated 1 million strays living on the streets, falling prey to being run over by a tram or car to sustain horrific injuries, with others falling victim to the routine poisonings, beatings, shootings and general abuse that life on the streets deals the street dogs. Even now, in the 21st century, rescue is in its infancy, with no adequate shelter system, and incarceration in the Government Pounds being a one-way ticket with the most horrific animal rights record, and terrible suffering everywhere :’/
There are no private dog shelters and only a couple of charities working in the whole of Macedonia at the moment, with no opportunities for rehoming… all of which means there is not much hope for those dogs or cats lucky enough to actually be rescued from the street, and with no adoptions, there is no room for more to be rescued.
Yet there are a lot of good young people all striving to help the feral dogs and cats, with street feeding stations being organised in all the areas where street animals gather; much of the costs of which are paid for out of their own small incomes – yet they need a lot of help, as unemployment is high and wages are low, so these good hearted angels struggle to pay for the feed that they need.
Will you help? Just $10 will buy a bag of feed for 3 puppies for a week and with winter coming, these angels need all the help they can get.
