Vucjak Shelter & Sanctuary came to life in 1997. It was established as a Shelter to provide assistance to Street dogs in Kragujevacka Serbia and to provide them with food, shelter and medical care.
Dejan ran the shelter with his mother, who recently passed away unexpectedly during a routine surgery, and they have helped hundreds of dogs that had been left for dead. Now the responsibility of hundreds of dogs has been placed on his shoulders alone.
The cost to run the Shelter & Sanctuary is approx. 3800 euros per month just for food. If you would like to make a donation for food you can use this link http://paypal.me/VucjakShelter or you can visit our sponsorship page and sponsor a dog!
The shelter has many needs that we will be addressing in the coming months and each project will be clearly identified. We would also love to take on an assistant for Dejan to feed and care for the animals as well as make repairs and upgrades as we go. We will need a lot of support to make improvements and are very grateful for all sponsorships and donations that will help to make the Shelter & Sanctuary the magnificent place it should be.
One of our immediate goals is to provide spay/neuter, vaccines, microchips and passports to the current residents of the shelter. We have created this website to showcase the dogs and those that may need to have sponsors because they are unadoptable. We are looking forward to many exciting programs in the months to come and hope you all will come along and join us in this journey.
