Dejan's Sanctuary for Dogs

Dejan Gacic owns and runs the Vucjak Shelter for dogs located near the city of Kragujevac in central Serbia.

Founded in 1997, Vucjak Shelter was established to provide assistance to abandoned, homeless and unwanted dogs in Serbia and to provide them with food, shelter, medical care and protection. It is currently home to over 600 dogs and other animals, most of whom are up for adoption.

Approximately 5,700 kg of food is needed each month to feed all of the dogs at a cost of 1 euro per kg. It costs about 16 euros per month to feed just one dog and this does not include the cost of any extra medical care that may be needed. The shelter relies solely on donations and if Dejan doesn't raise enough money, the dogs do not have enough to eat.

Dejan's commitment to this cause is astounding but he cannot do it alone.

Please help keep the animals at Vucjak Shelter well-fed and happy. Any donation is greatly appreciated!

***For transparency purposes, please be advised that the funds donated via this campaign are deposited into my bank account first (as I am the one who made this campaign and GoFundMe requires a bank account to release the money into). Once I receive the money, I send it directly to Dejan via his PayPal account. I am in regular contact with Dejan and send him money as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours of a donation being made as that is usually how long it takes for me to receive the funds (longer on weekends). As of March 29, 2019 I have sent over $13,000 to Dejan. Please note that once funds are withdrawn the total raised does not go back to $0 and the amount shown reflects the TOTAL raised since I started this campaign.***

Thank you for your support!
