There has been a noticeable rise in the presence of stray dogs and other homeless animals roaming the streets of Kraljevo, Serbia.
Goran Marinkovic, an avid animal lover, generously spends his own finances to provide food for more than 100 homeless canines and felines. Despite his extensive experience in rescuing animals, his recent encounter with a young pup named Smesten took him by surprise.
“I specialize in rescuing and providing sanctuary for at-risk animals who find themselves without a home,” Goran shared warmly. “My passion stems from a profound love for all creatures, be it a furry feline, a loyal canine, or any other beings deserving of compassion.” Goran continued, “My primary focus is addressing the plight of abandoned animals roaming the streets with no one to care for them or offer sustenance.” With heartfelt dedication, Goran works tirelessly as these numbers of forgotten animals continue to grow with each passing day.
One fine day, while feeding a group of stray dogs, he stumbled upon Smesten lying in a pile of garbage. The little puppy seemed terribly thin and sickly, with no sight of its mother around. To make matters worse, the poor creature had sought shelter from the harsh weather in an abandoned shoe.
As the animal enthusiast observed the grimy condition of the little pup, a wave of sorrow washed over him. Goran took it upon himself to nourish the young canine, recognizing that he couldn’t abandon him in such a delicate condition.
However, Goran decided to lift him up and bring him back to his place, making a quick stop at the veterinarian’s clinic to get some medicine. After that, he started taking care of the little dog and helping him recover.
For the next eight months, Goran lovingly nourished and attended to the adorable puppy, witnessing an incredible transformation in Smesten. The pup’s coat transformed into a lustrous and pristine state, radiating a silky smoothness. Smesten’s overall demeanor showcased a newfound happiness and adaptability, making him perfectly content in his surroundings. And let’s not forget, Smesten developed an absolute adoration for Goran, seeing him as nothing short of an idol!
Goran is no stranger to furry companions, with a bustling household already filled with a medley of dogs and cats. Initially, he had planned to find a loving family for Smesten once he was old enough. However, as Smesten grew and blossomed into a bigger pup, a surprising change of heart occurred within Goran – the thought of parting with him became unbearable.
Back in November, Goran welcomed Smesten into his home, with the intention of finding him a permanent home later on. But as time passed, a special bond formed between the two, making the idea of separation an impossibility.
