Our Mission

We want to stop the uneccesary suffering of stray dogs

The Max Foundation is a nonprofit charity organization focused on combatting the plight of straydogs in Bihac, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Right now, there are thousands of dogs living on the streets and adjacent landfill, and while the city seeks to provide aid to these animals, they lack the funds necessary to care for the dog population. But that’s where we come in. The Max Foundation, in cooperation with veterinarians and volunteers, seeks to resolve this problem sustainably and humanely, through the following means:

Our goals are challenging, and the road ahead is steep, but the results will make it all worthwhile. We cannot accomplish our mission without your support. Please consider donating today.

Max’s Story: How our organization got it’s name

My name is Max. When I was about 10 weeks old someone found me in a parking lot in Los Angeles. He took me to an animal shelter. I was very lucky that I was adopted just a week later. My life has been very exciting. We even moved from Los Angeles to Germany and I met a lot of great people. I was loved and my well-being always came first. I had many nicknames from ‘Mäuserich’ to ‘Macki’ to 'Good Boy'. I was certainly not perfect, but for my people I was. Unfortunately I lost the fight against cancer last year at the age of 10. I must have left a good impression, because now there is a foundation with my name. The people from the Max Foundation will give us dogs a voice, dedicated to win the fight against animal suffering.
