The company has announced that it will work with other organizations and the city administration in Belgrade to achieve this goal.

The Mila Fund was named after a young dog rescued in Belgrade this week, who was the victim of vicious cruelty.

The fund's goal is to help the recovery and rehabilitation of Mila, but also all other animals who suffer cruel treatment.

The fund will provide urgent veterinary care and shelter for such animals, while one of its tasks would be to help bring those who commit acts of cruelty to animals – persecuted as felony under Serbian laws – to justice.

The fund will raise money, help set up and monitor the work of an organization modeled after the Pet Police, with emphasis put on transparency and accountability.

This organization will bring together professionals from the fields of veterinary medicine and public safety, and will base its activities on contribution from volunteers willing to work to help homeless and abused animals.

The Mila Fund has been launched along with the overwhelming response from the country and around the world, with offers to help and donate to the cause of making sure that the one-year-old mixed breed, found with all of her legs cut off, recovers and finds a safe home.

Meanwhile, the Spanish AIMME Institute has decided to manufacture prosthetic limbs for Mila free of charge, and thus join the campaign.

Erste Bank made one of the first donations, and is also providing accounts for those who wish to make a contribution. The RSD account number is 340-36233-65 Erste Bank a.d. Novi Sad; the hard currencies account is 50030180-17539744 Erste Bank a.d. Novi Sad (for the Mila Fund). The hard currency payments can only be made from abroad.
