THREE PEAKS CHALLENGE TO RAISE MONEY FOR SAVING SUFFERING STRAYS SARAJEVO
As volunteers for Saving Suffering Strays Sarajevo, the non-profit organisation which supports Milena’s work, and as adopters of Bosnian street dogs ourselves, we simply couldn’t be more passionate about this amazing cause, and we wanted to do something equally amazing to show our gratitude for all the work Milena does by raising money for those she loves best – the dogs themselves! That’s where the three peaks challenge comes in!!! On midsummer’s day, 21st June 2018, we will attempt to walk the three highest peaks in the UK in just one 24 hour period! The first, Ben Nevis in Scotland, is the highest of the three at an altitude of 4, 413ft, and with its steep inclines and long ascent, it’s certainly no mean feat! When completed, we will then hop on our mini-bus and embark on a 6-hour journey to take on the next peak, Scafell Pike, in Cumbria, England. At an altitude of 3, 209ft, it may be the smallest of the three peaks we will be climbing, but some believe the terrain to be the most challenging of all!
Finally, we will embark on our final leg of the journey – a drive of a further 5 hours to Snowdon, Gwynedd, Wales, in the beautiful Snowdonia National Park. At 3560 ft, Snowdon makes for a gruelling finish with even a scramble here and there thrown in! We are, however, absolutely determined to complete this challenge in the 24 hour period and raise desperately needed funds for Saving Suffering Strays Sarajevo!
WILL YOU HELP US DO THIS???

The documentary “A Dog’s Life – The Strays of Sarajevo” directed by Maria Slough sheds light on the situation of stray dogs in Bosnia & Herzegovina. British actor and animal rights activist Peter Egan and veterinarian Roger Bralow travelled to Sarajevo to highlight the widespread animal cruelty and low level of animal rights in Bosnia & Herzegovina. The documentary follows the incredible work of Milena Maleševic who has managed to save more than 1000 dog in the past ten years.
The documentary will be screened on 30th January at the European Parliment in Brussels. The screening will be hosted by Croatian MEP Davor Škrlec, with the support of the Intergroup on the Welfare and Conservation of Animals and Eurogroup for Animals. The event aims to highlight the need for better animal protection laws in Eastern European countries, and an expert panel will explore possible options for the human management of the stray animal population.
Our golden sisters, Misha, Tasha, and Sasha have just been offered the opportunity of a lifetime! They have the chance of a new life in the U.K.
But we still need £525 to cover their travel costs to their new home. Can you help these beautiful girls reach their forever home? The HAPPY BUS leaves on THURSDAY, and unless we can raise £525 before that date, they won’t be able to travel.
You can Donate via our YouCaring appeal: www.YouCaring.com/TerrificTrioTravel
Or via PayPal: Rescue.Transport@yahoo.com (reference Trio travel)
We desperately want to make their dreams come true and give them a life they simply won’t have in kennels!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
