Because every dog deserves a home.

Milena Malesevic has been saving the stray dogs of Sarajevo for over twenty years and has rescued over 1000 dogs. Our volunteers work across Europe assisting Milena in her vital work rescuing and rehoming the street dogs of Sarajevo and fundraising to support stray and abandoned dogs in the UK.




At the beginning of this month Saving Suffering Strays embarked on a major rescue of 12 puppies stranded in a tunnel. We were able to rescue these puppies thanks to the generosity of Olsen Animal Trust and their dear friends Julia and Paulo Grazien-Smith who came together to help us help these puppies. Today we are launching a match fund fundraiser to raise £1600. Every £1 that you donate will be matched by our two wonderful donors so doubling your donation to £2!!!!. Can you help us keep these puppies safe and get them the veterinary care, food and shelter that they need?
