Last month, Sasha Pejčić was in desperate need to find help. He runs a shelter in Nis, Serbia, but for two days he ran out of food and was unable to feed the 400 dogs he looks after. Thanks to Harmony Fund who stepped in to help, Pejčić’s dogs will never go hungry again.

Pejčić helps homeless dogs by bringing them to his cage-free shelter and offering them the love and care they need. He started his own animal sanctuary in 2008. This, after realizing that many of the homeless dogs he fed were picked up by the local pound and destroyed.

Each day, Pejčić needs 220-265 lbs of food to feed his animals. He feeds them a mixture of kibble and leftover meat and bread.

When Pejčić ran out of food and money, he reached out to the Harmony Fund. They started an emergency collection to help him raise enough money to buy food for his loved animals.

Thanks to the Harmony Fund and the outpouring support from animal lovers world-wide,  $10,500 in donations have been sent to feed Pejčić’s dogs. In June, 2013, another $12,000 will be sent. Each month after that, a monthly donation will be made to make sure there is food, veterinary care and electricity available for Pejčić’s dogs.
