“’The multitude of your sacrifices – what are they to me?’ says the Lord. ‘I have more than enough of burnt offerings, of rams and the fat of fattened animals; I have no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats. Your hands are full of blood! Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight.’ ” – Isaiah I:11, 15-16

Holiday Table With Live Chicken

Blagdanski stol sa zivom kokosi
Together with the association Glas zivotinja, we invited people to a compassionate holiday celebration. Sasha the Hen, who was saved from the flood in Gunja, was model for the billboard by which we stated that the only way to have a chicken at the table is by inviting her, alive and unharmed, to join us for dinner. As a part of this campaign, we also published holiday recipes of Sasha the Hen, for baking of which it is needed precisely 0% of cruelty towards animals.


Dogs for Hanging?

Psi za vjesanje
Concerned with the situation in the Romani settlements in Medimurje county, where there are many homeless, sick, starving and wounded dogs, we demanded a reaction from Croatia’s president Grabar-Kitarovic, from the County state attorney, veterinary inspection and other relevant ministries. We participated in the round table discussion in Cakovec, and together with many other associations we visited one of the Romani villages and saw those terrible conditions for ourselves.


Dubrovnik With Police Against Dogs

Dubrovnik policijom protiv pasa
We warned about the disgraceful situation in Dubrovnik, where the city authorities violently abducted an unknown number of dogs from the shelter Zarkovica, accompanied by the police. We consider that Dubrovnik needs to return the animals immediately, and to build their own shelter, invest in the vaccination, spaying/neutering and homing. These costs for the last 15 years have been settled by volunteers, and now the City treats them like criminals.


No to Animals Under the Christmas Tree

Zivotinje nisu za pod bor
We appealed to the citizens not to give animals as presents for the holidays. To become a guardian of an animal is a great responsibility and not everyone is ready for it. We appeal to all to home an animal instead of buying one, by which the cruel breeding industry is supported and animals merely treated like objects. We also accentuated the importance of introducing the so called Positive list.


Celebration or War Zone?

Slavlje ili ratna zona
We publicly appealed for the prohibition of 2nd and 3rd class of pyrotechnics during the whole year. The Ministry of Internal Affairs announced consequent changes, after we collected over 15.000 signatures for the ban. But this year still numerous children, adults and animals suffer severe, and sometimes even fatal consequences of the explosions of pyrotechnic devices.


Protest for the dogs in Croatia

Zajedno za dubrovacke i sve druge pse
We participated in the protest in front of the Ministry of Agriculture by which we said ENOUGH to the responsible institutions’ and city authorities’ disrespecting of the laws concerning the homing of abandoned animals. The alertness of this situation is well illustrated by the cases of Romani villages in Medimurje and the violent abduction of dogs from the shelter Zarkovica.


New Years Resolution and Veggie Challenge

Vege izazov
We joined with the fitness trainer Dragan Surlan and invited everyone to make a New Year’s resolution to become vegan. Everyone who will apply for the Veggie Challenge until the end of January will be competing for winning the training course with Dragan, plus a vegan lunch!
