Felix Shelter Needs Your Help!

Animals  (tags: AnimalWelfare, rescued, cats )

- 1738 days ago -
Cat Shelter Felix in Serbia is in dire need of help. Part of the roof managed to get fixed but there's a lot left that's falling apart. Water has caused extensive damage this winter. Please see Danica's blog for damage photos. Very grim. Please help!!!!

You can see in the above photo the section of roof we all helped fix, but there's still a lot that needs to be done while the weather's better!! Links to Danica's blog with the full range of damage photos is at the bottom of SAV's page. We need to do everything we can to ensure this shelter survives. Please note, share and help a little if you can. Every little dime and nickel counts!! Even if you can't afford anything, sharing is a HUGE help. You never know who might like to swing to the rescue!!

Thank you for posting this, dear Kim.

It's heartbreaking for poor Danicka, I hope that the miracle she needs will come her way. She surely does deserve it.

I donate every month. I sponsor a deaf white angel at Felix named "Smesko." He's so awesome; his pic is on my desktop.

Unlike some extremely disreputable scammers out there ripping people off in the Balkan nations, Danica is verified and totally legit. She needs monthly members in a big way.

Danica and her cats have heart and soul. Please consider becoming a monthly donator.

I can't say enough thanks to everyone for doing what they can. I'm at my wits end trying to find enough funds to help Felix before it falls down. Not many backers what to help anywhere outside of North America, they're verrrrry few and far between. I've been scouring everywhere, if anyone has any ideas, they would be highly appreciated. The roof won't make it through another winter and now's the time to fix it if we can. I'll be using Ginger's suggestion and see what I can find out about the Ellen dream. Hopefully it extends to helping in Serbia!!

They have 30 celebs, including sir Paul McCartney, Brian May, Joanna Lumley, Ms Dynamite to name a few. Paul has said, for everyone that likes his FB page and posts a message to say for Felix shelter and Marilyn busy with charities shelter, Paul will donate £1.00 sterling for each like up to a maximum of £1,000 sterling, split between the two shelters!! Look on facebook for your home energy solutions, will put link on again if anyone can't find it. Thanks for sharing Karen c, Karen S, Ani MaeCh i, and thanks Kim for posting!
