Animals' Friends Croatia

ANIMALS' FRIENDS CROATIA was founded in October 2001 with the purpose of the promotion of the protection of the animals and vegetarianism as an ethical, ecological, and for a healthy acceptable way of life. With many actions already behind us, and many many more ahead, we appreciate any kind of help we can get.

The Croatian Government continues to deny wide-spread animal abuse, refusing to do anything, threatening and intimidating Animal-Rights Activists.

According to a law in Croatia, any cat or dog more than 300 meters beyond town limits is considered strayed and therefore is allowed to be killed. Traditionally it is accepted that dogs, cats and puppies can be killed and hung by the neck in branches of trees, as shown in the photo below, taken in the Medjimurje area in Croatia. Every year there are numerous cases of puppies, dogs and cats being intentionally shot and hung in this way by hunters.

SPREAD THE WORD - PLEASE TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS - CONTACT THE EU - HELP CHANGE THE WORLD 

WE WANT TO CHANGE THIS LAW AND STOP IMMEDIATELY THIS UNHEARD-OF DEMONSTRATION OF BARBARISM AND HATRED.

PLEASE TELL YOUR LOCAL MEDIA: LOCAL NEWSPAPERS, LOCAL RADIO STATIONS, LOCAL MAGAZINES &  TV STATIONS, WEB SITES

PLEASE HELP - SPREAD THE WORD - LET THE WORLD KNOW  - YOUR VOICE MAY BE CRUCIAL - HELP US NOW!

In Croatia there is only one no-kill centre for dogs. This is managed by an organisation called ZIVOT.  They are the first NGO in Croatia that built a decent shelter for abandoned animals.  With the help of the RSPCA, they are caring for and homing dogs and educating people on animal rights.   According to the authorities in the town of Osujek, Croatia, there will not be enough money to keep the shelter running.  In fact the authorities are always threatening to close down the shelter.
