Help Us Rescue Dogs From Kosovo - and Puerto Rico

UPDATE (January 1, 2018) MaxFund has welcomed 6 new dogs transported from the devestation of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Please continue to help us help these animals recover from the trauma of their recent experiences, as we work to rehabilitate them and prepare them for possible adoption to a forever family. Your continued support helps us help them!

Shooting dogs for “fun,” running over them, subjecting them to starvation – this is the cruelty from which MaxFund is rescuing dogs from Kosovo. Working with Kosovo Pet Rescue, we recently took in five dogs from this small country in southern Europe, and we welcomed three dogs earlier this year.

For three years now we have accepted dogs from Kosovo where there is an incredibly high rate of stray and abandoned animals along with horrific animal abuse.

Can you help us provide care for these and other MaxFund animals?  Please make your donation now, and view before and after pictures of Leesha (the Kosovo dog shown above) at:
