update:::::

hello everyone! All though we haven't started spaying dog We have an update. He have a change in plans. We have found a new vet that will do each dog for $40. This is less than the price of the original vet AND They have also agreed to do the work here in pogradec! The city has offered us a large amount of space to be able to set the dogs up while they heal. However this changes our original plan of doing a couple dogs a week and paying as we go. We now need to collect $2400 ($2700 with website fees) in order to do all 60 dogs. We plan on doing the first 30. Then after a month. The next 30. The first payment to the vet Will be $1200. We have some of that amount collect. Please consider donating as everyday that passes. We risk the chances of more puppies Thank you! I will not give up.


Hello everyone! I am fundraising for all the strays that belong to a beautiful town in Albania called pogradec. There is a Fairly large amount of stray dogs in pogradec. I have been overwhelmed with the amount urgent cases that have been presented to me in 2023 so far. From Car accidents, mass poisonings, puppies thrown into garbages , parvo, dogs fighting each other , malnourishment, and itty bitty puppies dying on the streets as orphans. It breaks my heart to have to turn down any case.

I have realized, That this whole time I have been trying to put bandages over the real problem. I had to readjust and go back to square one. In order to stop the suffering, We need to prevent the suffering. Spaying and neutering is the most effective way. Not poisoning, Not stealing puppies from mama and tossing them into garbage bins, And certainly not relocating them in the mountains with no food left to starve.

Finding help for animals in pogradec has been a bit difficult. There is no vet in the town. I have reached out to several organizations in the country with no avail. I have also reached out to local government. While Waiting for answers, I have found 49 puppies in just the month of May alone. There is about 60 urgent dogs that desperately need to be sterilized. Dogs with deformities due to broken bones, Mothers that have lost way to many litters in the past years, and also very young puppies becoming mothers themselves.

This is where it’s time to take matters into our own hands. Myself, and 2 other local volunteers have put a plan in to place. We are on a mission to spay/neuter as many dogs as possible. Preferably all 60 urgent case dogs. We will catch 3 or 4 dogs a week, Drive them to Korca where they will be sterilized, we will Help them through recovery, and rerelease them back into their territory when healed........ and THEN REPEAT!

Pogradec is a beautiful town that over looks the oldest lake in Europe. Filled with so much nature and beauty! Soulful food and amazing Albanian traditions. It’s a shame to see these little miracles of life suffering in a town this great!
ultimately our goal is to TNR as many dogs as possible. But we would also like to be an example for neighboring towns through out Albania. Instead of feeling helpless. It’s time to stand together. Nothing will change if we don’t try. If we work together we can get a better hold of the stray population and end mass amounts of suffering.

We are turning to the community, we are turning to our friends and family. We our turning to our friends of the strays. We are turning to anyone that would like to make a difference. The cost per dog is $58. We need to raise $3500 to be able to do all 60 dogs. No amount Is to small. Thank you!
