Forty five years later, we are still working on realizing that dream, but we&rsquo;re getting closer. Brian&rsquo;s vision and determination continue to inspire our staff, supporters and animal lovers around the world. I spoke with him about the early days and asked for his thoughts on the progress that we have made.</em></p> </div><p><a href="http://www.ifaw.org/european-union/news/how-ifaw%E2%80%99s-founder-brian-davies-came-dedicate-his-life-seals" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Seals Animal rescue Seals Canada clubbing fur hakapik seal hunt seal pup Thu, 09 Apr 2015 15:53:41 +0000 Azzedine Downes 103587 at http://www.ifaw.org Dogs and people living in harmony in Bosnia http://www.ifaw.org/european-union/news/dogs-and-people-living-harmony-bosnia <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/european-union/about-us/cats-and-dogs/rebecca-brimley">Rebecca Brimley</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Tue, 03/24/2015</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="node-body"><p><img alt="Lopare’s dogs gradually gained more and more allies, until the whole community agreed that healthy, happy dogs make for a healthy, happy community." class="caption" src="http://d2mlnkprj9wd81.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/wordpress/03_23_15_bosnia.jpg" style="width: 610px;
