5 million animals at risk of disease due to Balkan floods. Serbia suffered the greatest damage, so hundreds of thousands of animals there now need medical treatment.
Serbia’s Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic has called this the “greatest flooding disaster ever,” and experts at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change state that extreme weather events like this will be more common in the future due to global warming. Your donation to protect animals is critical.
The total cost of our life-saving relief efforts is estimated at $76,560 and will help approximately 286,000 animals in Serbia.

Animal lives lost as floods ravage Serbia
|The worst floods the Balkans have experienced in over a century began on May 14. In just three days, Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia were hit with three months’ worth of rain. Flooding and landslides have devastated entire cities and communities, displacing more than 1 million people and affecting approximately 5 million animals. These communities are now left picking up the pieces while contaminated water and the spread of infectious disease threatens their lives.|
