Support a charity or Rescue a Dog

Post Posted: Sun Jan 22, 2006 6:22 pm

Hello all Expats in Bulgaria

I have been communicating with a wonderful man doing excellent work with stray and injured dogs in the areas around Sofia. He runs the charity BSAPP, the Bulgarian Society for Animal Protection and Preservation. This charity seeks out and collects stray dogs, treats them for injuries, runs a castration programme and then the dogs are ready to go to suitable new homes.
If any of you are looking for a dog, please keep an eye on the Quest Bulgaria magazine who will be running a series of articles about this charity and its work, plus they are actively supporting us with donations. I am joining forces with Dr Stoyanov and will be a member of the charity very shortly, as soon as the paperwork is completed..The aim now is to support the charity as it stands (they need new operating equipment such as xray machines, anaesthic apparatus etc), help the dogs who are ready to be adopted and in the spring time to set up a new rescue centre in Rasovo operating from my home, in the northwest corner of Bulgaria, which I shall run on behalf of BSAPP.

There is much work to be done, from campaigning with local vets, mayors and business men to give their support, to seeking financial aid amongst expats here and people still living in the Uk or wherever. So all you people who have moved over here and want something to do with your time, want to keep active and want to help in some way, here is your chance, Any offers of assistance, whether it be to collect strays, inspect prospective owners homes, assist in making the new rescue centre will be gratefully looked at. And all you brilliant fund raisers, use the skills you have, help this charity to expand and grow and thereby the stray and injured dogs of Bulgaria to have a better life.

This is a very worthy cause, as any of you who have witnessed the current stray problem in Bulgaria will have seen for yourselves.

Anyone able to offer a dog a home please contact me and I will pass on your details or look at the website for the charity which is www.bsapp.hit.bg.

Thanks all,

Diana

Hi Diana

Thanks for highlighting the BSAPP - as you know they are the preferred Quest Bulgaria magazine charity. Every subscription we get for the magazine means we give a donation, and every advert means we give another donation too.

In addition, Chris and I for our personal contribution are buying a computer and printer for the charity as they currently have no computer nor communication facilities for email (except the Chaiman's personal email)

We'll be publishing monthly articles in the magazine informing everyone of what is going on, how they can help, how they can donate, dogs needing re-homing, and more....

Please can I ask everyone to help. Well done Diana

All best wishes, Jain

Hi All

Just a quick correction to my above post, the website shown no longer exists for some reason, however as stated by Jain from Quest Bulgaria they are sorting out the computer side of things, good eggs - watch this space.

In the meantime you may contact myself either by PM, email at dianaslavcho @ hotmail.com or tel on 00359 (0) 885852685.

Thanks everyone

Diana

Hi Diana

We accessed the web site last night.... as we will be doing the English pages for Stoyan.... and I also checked it again just now...perhaps it was some other kind of problem?

Best wishes, Jain

Thanks Jain

I will try again thanks, maybe one of my blond or elderly moments, not sure which I am getting.
As a matter of interest, a lady called Pauline Gee has replied to my post about the puppies up for rehomng and is going to take one of them or a dog from Dr Stoyanov, so that is one success to start us off. She is moving to the Aprilis region near Gabrovo so have also asked her to spread the word amongst any expats over there. Rehome a dog, sponsor a dog, donate financially or equipment wise, labour etc etc.

Regards and will be in touch by email in the near future,

Diana

Hi Everyone,
I do not believe that there is not a single expat either here or moving here that has never done any kind of fund raising for a charity, or that there are not some true animal lovers amongst you all. So I am just reminding everybody that the dogs you see roaming the streets wherever you are in Bulgaria, have got some chance of being helped, yes they are starving, freezing and in many cases injured as well. Sp please don't let this be a snippet you have read and then forgotten, the only way to help them is to hep BSAPP, THE animal rescue charity in Bulgaria.

Please help,

Thankyou all,

Diana
