Pejčić runs the shelter out of old riding stables he took over a few years back. His lifesaving work, and his small staff, is supported by The Harmony Fund, an American organization that works to aid small animal rescues around the world.
"Here they are loved and not expected to do anything other than to simply be dogs," Laura Simpson, founder of the Harmony Fund, told The Dodo. "Many are adopted out internationally to good homes, and others will spend their remaining days at the sanctuary."
This shelter, and the 450 dogs who live there, rely mostly on donations for food and other expenses.
