Despite having to take his own dog Majkica all the way to Zagreb for specialist treatment, Caki has still been busy with a modest number of newcomers, some very sick dogs, and - amazingly - a whole litter of new puppies born to ValerieValerie approached Caki early on New Year's Eve, outside a butcher's shop: she was incredibly friendly, and seemed to be pleading with Caki to help her.  It was only later that we discovered she was about to give birth to a litter of pups, now named Birdy, Jeannie, Georgie, Penita, Rudi, and Ebony.

Angel was suffering in Praca with an untreated tumour, until Caki took her out: she has now had surgery and is in foster care.  Other new arrivals include a big collie named Sebastian, also from Praca, and two young dogs Star and Darcie found scavenging in the snow.

A group of rabbits that Caki had somehow acquired (to save them from the cooking pot!) also travelled to new homes in Austria.

Among the lucky leavers, two of the "bus stop pups" Elvis and Lisa came to the UK, along with Max, Maya, Rubina and Zeus, while Blaze went to Belgium for a new life.  April went to the UK in late December.

Sadly both George and one of the "bus stop pups" Chris succumbed to ill health.  There have also been very substantial veterinary costs associated with Diamond and Angel, and also routine neutering (the Dogs Trust free neutering campaign has ended, and isn't set to resume for a few months), vaccinations and testing... and of course Valerie's pups!

This all takes hard work, dedication ... and a great deal of money!  Without the generosity of you, Caki’s worldwide family of wonderful supporters, these dogs would not stand a chance.  Please remember Caki’s Furry Family this winter. Thank you!


IMPORTANT: Due to new and emerging tax claims, please would ALL those DONATING BY PayPal mark your donation simply as "Gift".  This may help to minimise tax liabilities.

By making a donation towards his furry family, you can help keep them safe for one more month. Every Euro shows you care, every share shows you care.  Please do look out for possible new homes for Caki's dogs - they are safe in "pension" but they all really need proper homes.  If you can help him in anyway please share his struggle: HELP CAKI DOGS TO FIND HOMES.

If you prefer to make a donation directly via PayPal, please send it to   PLEASE mark payments "Gift".



FUNDRAZR FEES:  If you are using PayPal then Fundrazr will only work properly with a minimum €5 donation PLUS a minimum €1 "donation" or "tip" to Fundrazr.  Smaller donations, and or donations with the Fundrazr "tip" set to zero, are automatically refunded via PayPal (but you can of course still make a direct payment to Caki's PayPal - see above).

TAX:  The Bosnian authorities have retrospectively imposed a 10% tax on all PayPal and other electronic payments to private individuals received from overseas.  As a result we have to add a further 10% to cover this cost.  Caki is working with professional advisers to find how best to minimise this extra cost, and the potentially crippling retrospective liability: PLEASE MARK YOUR DONATIONS as "GIFT".
