PLEASE read the story about Azra, so heartbreaking. Azra doesn’t deserve this, so PLEASE anyone who might help her to continue the therapy, do it!
We have to win this battle together!
SHARE EVERYONE PLEASE!
This is Azra, the beautiful girl whose ‘owner’ obviously does not care too much about her because he allowed her to come to this situation, and the situation is following: the carcinoma of the vagina whose type we still do not know because it requires a departure to vet clinic in Belgrade, after the suggestions of the veterinarians in Bor where Azra lives, and the pathohistology has to be done.
What the veterinarian suggests is a quality surgery of an experienced surgeon, which again requires a visit to Belgrade, and for which there is no money.
Jovan Joja Cvetkovic took over the dog as soon as he found out about her, since ‘the…

Since Election Day, human-rights organizations like Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the NAACP have seen their donations spike. “This is the greatest outpouring of support for the ACLU in our nearly 100-year history,” its executive director announced. “Greater than the days after 9/11.”
That goodwill has also spilled over into the coffers — and membership lists — of environmental organizations. While it’s too soon to tell how much green groups will collect in the wake of the election, this month’s flood of support could come as a boon to organizations that usually receive a small portion of philanthropic giving. Environmental and animal welfare groups traditionally rank low on the list of causes Americans donate to. In 2015, they received just 3 percent of total donations, far less than churches, schools, hospitals, even arts and culture.
It seems that President-elect Donald Trump’s promises to overturn Obama-era environmental regulations and ditch an international climate agreement have spurred those angered by election results to vote with their wallets.
This real news is powered by you. Support Grist
“The incoming administration threatens to roll back environmental protections across the board,” said Earthjustice President Trip Van Noppen in a statement. With renewed support, Van Noppen said, Earthjustice plans to provide a line of defense against these rollbacks, by deepening its legal team and increasing the number of clients it represents — already more than 600 — in legal battles.
Many other environmental organizations are making similar pleas, seeking financial support to fight the Trump administration’s damaging environmental agenda. Every environmental organization Grist contacted said it had seen an increased level of engagement in some way.
The climate action group 350.org has gained tens of thousands of new supporters since Election Day, spokesman Jamie Henn said, and has seen donations surge. The organization’s petition to stop climate denier Myron Ebell from running the Environmental Protection Agency gained over 20,000 signatures in a few days.
Friends of the Earth, too, is raking in money at an unprecedented level: four times faster than before the election, according to development director Peter Stocker. The Sierra Club said it has gained more than 15,000 new monthly donors since the election, double the number that joined during the rest of the calendar year. Earthjustice has seen a 711 percent increase in online donors over last month, and during the week of Nov. 7, the group saw a 707 percent increase in new online donors compared to the same week in 2015.
The Environmental Defense Fund has seen similar upticks. “Without any special prompting from us, people are energized about protecting the progress we’ve made,” membership director Sam Parry said in a statement. “Apparently the sixth stage of grief is activism.”
Those numbers will mean big green groups can widen their campaigns and increase their digital outreach — one Grist editor has received up to four Sierra Club fundraising emails a day since the election — but not everyone in the climate movement is convinced that more money alone will make a difference.
“We need a surge of people into the streets, and the jails,” says Wen Stephenson, author of What We’re Fighting For Now Is Each Other, a book on climate activism. “We need more resistance camps like at Standing Rock, only everywhere.”
Others in the movement agree that Trump-era environmentalism will need to be an on-the-ground battle, because it will be difficult, if not impossible, to make progress in Washington with a Trump administration and GOP-dominated Congress. “Now that the inside game is so difficult, the outside game is even more important,” said 350.org’s Henn. (Note: 350.org founder Bill McKibben is a member of the Grist board of directors.)
Other green groups are seeing a surge of interest in organizing and direct action, too. Greenpeace cites a boost in calls and emails from people asking what they can do, as well as more people signing up for training.
Stocker, at Friends of the Earth, expects an increase in activists and volunteers at the community level as people reach out to friends, family, and anyone else looking to get involved and work across movements.
“People are telling us that this election shook them to the core,” Stocker said. “Those who had never been to a rally or protest are itching to get out and make their voices heard.”

I am sharing my go fund me account. If you would like to help us fight for Dude and Jude please do. I’m only asking for $300 cause I wasn’t really sure what all I was going to have to do. I may have to get a lawyer and fight for them. This money will be only spent on Dude and Jude, nothing else. We want to keep our deer. And will do whatever it takes to keep them. Any money that go’s over our goal or if something would happen and we aren’t allowed to keep the deer I will return the money back to you if you wish or donate it to another deer facility. I’m not looking to make money off this. I just want to keep my deer. I don’t know what their going to do if they let us keep them. It’s the State of Illinois we’re dealing with so who knows. But I promise you I will only use the money on Dude and Jude. I’m hoping when I go to court on the 29th it gets throwed out but I’m not agreeing to anything. I’m fighting this all the way and I’m sure it’s gonna cost me more than $300. So anything you can give to help us is greatly appreciated. May God bless you all. I’ll keep you posted. Again you can text my cellphone number at 618-315-7613 and leave your name and I’ll keep you updated. Thank you. You don’t know how much this means to our family.
Our Deer Dude and Jude

At the vet we have new dogs who will be neutered as soon as possible.
Their lives were in danger because of their agressiveness. Bony, abandon Breton, is at the vet, in therapy, and she needs to recover and get stronger before she gets neutered.

From Danica Mirkovic Shelter Felix
Freddie is a young kitty boy who had the misfortune of being shot by a hunter with a shotgun in February of 2014.
He was found seriously injured, with a completely shattered front left leg and a broken front right leg.
Both of his injured legs were operated on months ago, but his body is still chock-full of buckshot.
After the surgeries, he spent four months in a cage with a metal rod put into one of his broken legs while the other one was splinted and two more months recovering once the metal rod was removed.
He was kept in foster care, and was not allowed to move very much . He was brought him to our shelter in August 2014, as his foster caretaker wished to give him the chance of a fulfilled life in the company of other cats.
