In Memory Of Faca 4th April 2019

We have some very sad news to report. Our handsome and sweet boy Faca died this week.

He became very ill suddenly and Maya immediately took him to the vet. He stayed there and received treatment, but never recovered.

As you can understand, Maya, Sanela, Adnan and all of us here are devastated. Faca was one of the first dogs Maya and Sanela saved from the streets. He and his best friend Ketty (also at the Hope shelter) used to wait for Maya and Adnan near their home. Both Faca and Ketty knew the sound of Adnan’s car.

Once the shelter was built, Faca and Ketty were placed there safely. They have been very bonded for years and Ketty is heartbroken.

Faca has been buried in a beautiful spot at the Hope shelter so he will always be near his friends.

Rest In Peace and love, sweet Faca. You were loved and wanted and your life mattered.



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 117 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 119 successful adoptions. Every time we find one dog a loving home it allows us to take another into our care and change that dogs life.

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 117 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.
