About Us

Hope Vms Elaine's Dogs is registered in the federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina as an association for the protection of Animals. Founded in 2013 by sisters Maya Majoly and Sanela Sujoldzic, what started as a small shelter has now rapidly grown into a thriving dog rescue. We have rescued countless dogs from the horrors of the harsh Bosnian streets and public shelters, healing them physically and mentally from the traumas they have suffered in their sad lives as an unwanted dog, unloved street dog.

Presently we care for 68 dogs at the shelter, some old, some puppies but all deserving to be loved and the chance of a better future. Our dogs are cared for by Maya, Sanela and Maya's husband Adnan.

Hope Vms Elaine's Dogs run an ever growing shelter in a rural area where our rescued animals can heal and be rehabilitated in peace. Once they are fully healed, vaccinated and sterilized they are available for adoption to safe happy homes (we conduct strict checks prior to adoption). We have had over 200 successful adoptions so far all over Europe and have more in the process, but for every dog we save there are 20+ more ready to take their place in our shelter, sadly the struggle is never ending.

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. We aim to relive the suffering and abuse of Bosnian Dogs through rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing.

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! Sponsoring a dog really does help to save a life. Also fundraising whether its a raffle, coffee morning or a sponsored walk, anything you can think of to help raise funds is much needed and appreciated more than we can say. You can also help us just by spreading the word of our shelter to friends and family, support our Facebook pages and share them, donate items or bid for goodies on our monthly auction. However you choose to help, know that we thank you for your kind hearts and generosity, together we really can make a difference to the lives of these precious dogs.

Hope Vms Elaine's Dogs can use donated medicines up to 12 months past their expiry date. We also always can use, Bowls, towels, blankets, medical equipment and transportation boxes/cages. Also toys, leads, collars and beds are an amazing help. We can get these items to Bosnia via the transport crew we use so if you have items to donate contact us here today and we can arrange that for you.
