Hope Vms Elaine's Dogs is a rescue shelter for dogs founded in the federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. We are registered as an Association for the Protection of Animals. Founded in 2013 by sisters Maya Majoly and Sanela Sujoldzic, we work tirelessly to help save the dogs of Sarajevo and surrounding areas from the horrors of life on the streets or the public pounds which are little more than death camps.

Presently we care for 54 dogs at the shelter, feeding, caring and rehabilitating them. We work hard arranging adoptions all over Europe and have had at time of writing this 294 successful adoptions. Every time we find one dog a loving home it allows us to take another into our care and change that dog's life.

In addition to rescuing and rehabilitating dogs we have to date successfully rehomed 29 cats and kittens and presently have 2 in foster care.

With no official funding we rely solely on donations from individuals in the global community to continue or life saving work. We are a private rescue shelter so do not receive any money for boarding dogs like the pensions do.

Hope Vms Elaine's Dogs is a no-kill shelter providing vaccination, sterilization and other necessary medical assistance to all rescued dogs but none of this is possible without help form people like you! You can help by fundraising in your home towns, sponsoring one of our 68 dogs, which provides their food and help towards vaccinations and regular health treatment like flea and worm treatments or buy them a meal or treat here on our web page from as little as 1 Euro.

We also have Facebook pages you can support us on with a regular monthly auction you can donate items to or bid on to fundraise for food, foster transports, rent on the land where our shelter is based and anything else the dogs need to remain healthy. Please come and visit them and share our pages and website on all your social media, every share like every Euro/ Pound or Dollar helps more than we can say.
