About Us

Balkan Underdogs is a not for profit UK registered charity made up of volunteers dedicated to helping the street dogs and cats in the Balkans.


As a responsible rescue, all of the dogs in our care undergo health screening and behaviour assessment. We medically treat any cat or dog that needs our help, and and have a full rescue back up policy. 

We understand that rescue is not just about rehoming cats and dogs, but reducing the street population.  We run a very successful Spay & Neuter Campaign in Serbia, offering a lifeline to locals as we provide access to clinics with free neutering & spaying. We have proven that our campaign has made a significant different to the number of strays being born into a life of neglect, abuse and danger.

As of summer 2022 we have  reached over 3000 spay and neuters! Which means we have prevented thousands of animals being born into a life of danger and disease with YOUR help.

Sponsorship is vital to our work!

Your sponsorship helps us provide medicine, food and shelter. As a not for profit rescue, every penny is straight to the cause.

​Sponsorship is not only very rewarding, but allows us to help as many cats and dogs as we can. It's a great way to help if you aren't able to adopt a dog, and you'll receive regular updates from our team. 

Get in touch if you can help sponsor a cat or a dog
