Association for providing aid to abandoned animals "Help Animals" was founded on October 8th 1992. in Belgrade, under reg.no.: 357/212-1-207/92, as a non-governmental and non-profit association of citizens for the Republic of Serbia.
The first our shelter was located at No.50 Ovčanski put Street, and our main activity, from 1992. until spring of 1999. was taking care of the dogs in the shelter.
By financial means from a donation received from Germany in 1998. the Association bought much bigger plot of land in place Batajnica, a suburb of Belgrade and opened a new shelter there. Unluckily for these 70 dogs, residents of the shelter, bombing of Yugoslavia started in March 1999., whereas Batajnica turned out to be one of the main target areas.
Luckily, members of the Association managed to save all the dogs, but unfortunately the Association suspended all its activities.
Intensive activities were again continued in June 2000. when members of "Help animals" saved 430 dogs and 16 cats from Sheltes on hill Avala near the Belgrade.
