ABOUT US

The Tanzie Project, Inc. is a 501c3 registered nonprofit, incorporated in Virginia.

 

Our mission is to bring awareness and support to saving the forgotten, homeless pets of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

We're Walker and Katie Ward, and we founded the The Tanzie Project after adopting a homeless Bosnian street dog named Tanzie. We want to save others like her, because she brings our family so much joy. Tanzie spent her life surviving on the streets...now she's changing the lives of others like her. 

The Tanzie Project's efforts are based on program areas of Animal Rescue and Animal Welfare: we rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome forgotten dogs of Bosnia, matching them with their "pawfect" families across Europe, the U.S., and Canada.

 
 Hi, I'm Tanzie! I'm here to bring awareness to the dire stray dog situation in Bosnia & Herzegovina. 
I came from Sarajevo and am one of the lucky ones who have escaped the terrible situations there. Because two "hoomans" decided to take a chance on me, I'm now living the good life in America - I used to be STREET......Now I'm CHIC!

My mommy Katie first saw me outside of the base where she was working in Sarajevo, and would come feed me and play with me several times a day. I had no idea what she was planning for me; I just looked forward to every day, because I knew she would come give me attention and food…and it gave me hope that not all humans treated dogs poorly.

 

Now, I'm on a mission to rescue and rehome the friends I left behind - let's #savebosnianstrays!
