There are plenty of extraordinary people who sacrifice a lot in his or her life to give abandoned and neglected dogs that nobody else wanted a good life. A man named Dejan Gacic does this kind of sacrifice for more than two decades. Dejan is committed to giving abandoned dogs a good life, even if it means sacrificing his own.
There are thousands of abandoned and stray dogs in Serbia. Dejan knows about this problem, and he knows that when people don’t want their dogs anymore, they just throw them away like trash. Dejan takes pity on these dogs, and he decided to make it his life’s work to rescue strays and dogs that have been thrown away.
It all started with one dog when Dejan found one living beside a trash pile that was located only three hundred meters from a shelter. Dejan took the dog home with him and provided it with food, water, and shelter. Dejan also made sure that the dog he took home felt loved and that humans can be trusted.
It didn’t take long for Dejan to start bringing home more and more abandoned dogs. He soon needed a larger place that is located far away from highly populated areas. Dejan eventually purchased a big land where dogs can run around free and have a roof over their heads during the night.
However, the land and house Dejan purchased was so far away from civilization that the property didn’t have water or electricity. With hundreds of dogs in his care, Dejan had to work hard just to give the dogs their basic needs. Dejan had to fetch water three times every day, so the dogs under his care had clean water to drink, and he also needed money for food.
Dejan himself lives in the dog sanctuary he created. He sleeps with dogs by his side, and he makes sure that all the dogs feel that they’re loved. It’s expensive to run a shelter that Dejan started. Thankfully, Dejan’s story reached like-minded people from all over the world, and money began to come in.
Although running the sanctuary is hard and expensive, Dejan is committed wants to continue rescuing dogs and other animals, and finding all of the animals he saved a forever home that they deserve. Here’s a heartwarming video of how one person managed to rescue hundreds of dogs. By the end of the video, you’ll surely feel inspired by Dejan and the work he does.
